Call Of Duty developer Treyarch, has released an enticing new gameplay trailer showing off some of the story elements for Black Ops 3.
The trailer depicts a technologically inundated world, in which soldiers have been fitted with the latest BCI (Brain Computer Interface) systems, only to find out they now possess control only over the most meagre of bodily movements, whilst the rest of their body resides under the control of an illicit foe.
This trailer follows the Call of Duty Twitter campaign where the developer tweeted a fake terrorist attack as a publicity stunt and to tease setting and key events.
Black Ops III engrosses players in a dark and gritty future, where a new breed of Black Ops soldier has emerged, and the lines between humanity and military technology have been blurred. You must navigate the hot spots of a new Cold War to find your missing brothers. While much has changed, one thing remains the same: everything you know may be wrong.
Check out the trailer below:
For those who haven’t been following the title’s coverage, the last time we left the Black Ops series was with David Mason shoving his GI boot up antagonist Raul Menendez’s butt. But that battle has long passed by the time Black Ops 3’s events come along.
The year is 2060, more than three decades after the events of Black Ops 2. So far, the Masons are nowhere in sight, but in their place you’ll create and take control of your own soldier as you battle the new age’s military threats.
The specifics of the global threat are still unknown, but where Black Ops 2 saw the world’s military forces being devastated by city-destroying, weaponized drones, that world-ending situation will not repeat in the upcoming sequel. The world’s nations are now outfitted with a lot of anti-drone defenses, putting an emphasis back on having strong ground forces to settle political differences – which is, of course, where you come in.
