Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Playable At Gamescom

That sound you just heard was the clicking of millions of crazed Call of Duty fans bugging the Travelocity gnome for cheap tickets to Germany for next week.

That’s right, the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be playable at Gamescom, the European equivalent of E3. Gamers will be lucky enough to explore the game’s multiplayer hands-on.

If you aren’t able to make it to the convention, never fear: G4 has announced that the game will be featured on live streams “all over the world on Xbox LIVE, CallofDuty.com, Facebook.com/codblackops and Twitch.tv/Treyarch.”

Black Ops 2 looks to pick up several years after the events of the original Black Ops, taking on a near-future approach to warfare. Its pre-order numbers have already broken records, and many expect this game to be the largest Call of Duty launch in recent history.
