It’s that time of year again. The color of the leaves on the trees have changed, there’s a crispness in the air, and there’s a new Call of Duty headed your way. Today, Activision released the Launch Gameplay Trailer for the next installment in it’s ongoing blockbuster series Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The trailer sets the stage for what players should expect from the latest addition to gamings yearly blockbuster series.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III is being developed by Treyarch, the team that most fans currently consider to be the best of the three Call of Duty development houses. A recent beta for the game was well received by the majority of players with a handful of changes helping to mix up the gameplay and help the experience feel new rather than just a rehash of the same content. Black Ops III appears to be the biggest entry to the series yet in terms of content too. Here in their own words is Activision’s take on what players can expect.
“Call of Duty: Black Ops III is the ultimate 3-games-in-1 experience. In Campaign mode, you must navigate the hot spots of a new Cold War to find your missing brothers. Players can play the campaign cooperatively or solo and are now always connected to the intelligence grid and their fellow operatives during battle.
Multiplayer features a new momentum-based chained movement system, allowing players to fluidly move through the environment with finesse, using controlled thrust jumps, slides and mantling. Black Ops III multiplayer also introduces the new Specialist character system, which allows players to master 9 characters’ battle-hardened weapons and abilities through a challenge-based unlock progression system. No Treyarch title would be complete without its signature Zombies offering.
“Shadows of Evil” has its own distinct storyline right out of the box, set in the fictional 1940s Morg City, where four particularly troubled individuals – the femme fatale, the magician, the detective and the boxer – star in this film-noir inspired horror story.”
The game is setting itself up yet again to be one of, if not the biggest blockbuster games of the year. The full Call of Duty: Black Ops III experience is set to launch on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 6, 2015. It is also slated to launch the same day on the Xbox 360 and PS3, however this edition will only include the competitive multiplayer and Zombies mode.
