The millions of games in the world drooling over the most anticipated video game launch of the year with Call of Duty: Black Ops have one more thing to get excited about. Jeep recently announced it has been named exclusive automotive partner by Activision Publishing for Call of Duty: Black Ops, which will be released on November 9.
In conjunction with the partnership between Jeep and Activision, Jeep will be producing a limited-edition 2011 Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty: Black Ops Edition, which will be available next month to coincide with the launch of the game. The Jeep Wrangler will be available at a U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $30,625 for the two-door model and $33,500 for the four-door (Jeep Wrangler Unlimited) model, and Jeep notes that both prices include $750 destination.
The 2011 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited Call of Duty: Black Ops Edition is based on the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model and features dark Rubicon wheels in a high-gloss Mineral Gray. The vehicle’s exterior color is black and features Call of Duty: Black Ops graphics on the roof and front quarter panels. The vehicle also features taillamp guards and a fuel-filler door from Mopar. It also comes equipped with aggressive 32-inch off-road tires, live axles with locking differentials in the front and rear, and a two-speed transfer case.
“It was important for us to make sure that the Jeep partnership would be authentic and enhance the setting we immerse our fans in with Black Ops,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head of game developer Treyarch. “Our work with the Jeep team focused around using the Jeep Wrangler in our levels, and gameplay experiences, and translating the style and look of the vehicle in Black Ops to the Jeep on the showroom floor that our fans can own.”
