Call of Duty: Black Ops II is addicting. Between the standard competitive multiplayer and the Zombie mode, thousands of lifetimes of game hours have already been played online. Now while the game doesn’t exactly go into a slump over time after its release, there is definitely a renewed spike in gameplay with the release of new maps.
Things may have been a little different last year with the early access that Elite members received in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 but with Call of Duty: Black Ops II Season Pass holders and the general public gaining access to the new maps at the same time, expect servers to fill up and social lives to diminish. But how do you help salvage social relationships with friends, family, work and significant others? Activision says it’s time to call in a Replacer.
In the video below, you’ll check out the real benefit of taking on a Replacer. For those moments that you don’t really need to be there for like putting together furniture or the first few annoying hours of labor, a Replacer is the ideal substitute.
While obviously this is being said in jest, there is some scary truth to how addicting games can be when not played in moderation. Most of us who grew up in the gaming generation have probably skipped a day of high school or some lecture in college or even called out of work to play Diablo III or the latest World of Warcraft expansion on launch day. A replacer would have been ideal for us on days like that.
Take a look below at the full trailer for The Replacer which also includes additional peeks at the Revolution DLC’s new levels, playable Zombie mode and new weapon as well.
