This year will see a brand new entry in the Call of Duty video game franchise, a series that is quite arguably the most popular and highest-selling series in modern gaming. With an impressive amount of stats and play hours going into the series as a whole — as we’ve documented before — it’s no surprise that gamers everywhere are looking forward to the next taste of the series on new generation platforms. The next game in the series comes with, perhaps, an even higher set of expectations, largely because it will be a new installment in the highly popular Black Ops sub-series that was started by developer Treyarch in 2010.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III is expected to go even further into the future than previous installments Black Ops II and last year’s quasi-futuristic Advanced Warfare, and is even amping up the tempo of its regular gameplay pretty considerably. While last year’s game was seen as a relative quickening of the overall pace, the recently revealed movement tutorial for Black Ops III shows us that Treyarch is taking things even further by making speed the name of the game. See the official movement tutorial below.
It’s hard not to feel like many of the new movement mechanics seem to be inspired by last year’s freshman game from Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall, which was released exclusively on Xbox platforms and PC in March and April of 2014. The wall-running and extended jumping seem greatly inspired by the likes of Titanfall, though some new mechanics like underwater areas and weapon implementation feel like solid additions to the overall formula.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be released on November 6th on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as last gen’s Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. For more on the game as we get closer to its release, keep it locked on GeekNation!
