It was revealed at the end of the multiplayer teaser trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops that there would be a full reveal of the multiplayer component of the game on September 1st. Josh Olin, Treyarch community manager, has now teased some more details about that reveal via his Twitter page.
@homiciderabbit September 1st will be a HUGE deep-dive reveal of #CODBlackOps MP. Not just a video of a few maps =).
The second half of the tweet is presumably a reference to Modern Warfare 2′s own multiplayer reveal event. Three maps were shown off and a whole host of weapons, perks and killstreaks revealed, but it appears that Treyarch have promised to top this.

He followed up later with a similar tweet:
Remember remember the 1st of September; the Killstreaks, Attachments, and Game Modes surrendered! #CODBlackOps #MPReveal
It’s interesting that instead of focusing on weapons or maps, Olin chose to highlight attachments and game modes. Indeed, he said in an interview at Gamescom that the thing he was most excited in Black Ops was ‘some new modes that people will really like’. Apparently, we’re going to be finding out about some of these, come September 1st!
Speaking of September 1st, it looks like we will have a correspondent at the red-carpet event to bring you the best possible coverage. It’s not finalized as of yet, but assuming things work out we’ll be able to bring you a first-hand look at all the innovations in Black Ops’ multiplayer. However, rest assured that even if our correspondent doesn’t make it to LA we’ll be bringing you complete coverage of all the news as it breaks.
