What happens when humans become weapons? The plot of another Call of Duty, apparently.
Right on time, Activision and Treyarch have fully revealed just how dark the future’s looking in 2061, roughly a decade after the events of last year’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. In it, America’s black ops forces are more powerful than ever. Mech suits, jetpacks, drones, even full-on robot soldiers – they’re all just “average warfare” as far as the series is concerned.
Courtesy of the sizable trailer below, what’s now officially dubbed Call of Duty: Black Ops III takes players across your typical array of bullet-ridden battlefields and features what appears to be some unique melee combat between soldiers and their robot counterparts.
There’s nothing in the way of a lot of story here, but as a “reveal” trailer, it’s assumed there’ll be something about our lead heroes sometime soon. Oh, and zombies. Zombies are coming.
On further note, we finally have a date for Black Ops III: this November 6th. By the looks of it, we won’t be getting a last-gen version of it either. The trailer’s end confirms that it’s available for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC of which it’s multiplayer beta is also available for pre-orderers. No Wii U version mentioned here, sad to say.
