New Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Trailer Dives Into Storytelling

Activision just uploaded a new trailer for Treyarch’s highly anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, focusing entirely on the narrative progression featured in the game’s ambitious campaign.

Lead Writer Craig Houston and Campaign Game Director Jason Blundell spearhead the trailer as they discuss the impressive aspects of their design philosophies. Depth is a keyword reiterated throughout the video’s entirety, reinforcing just how much content there is for individual players to experience.

Awe-inspiring graphics aside, Treyarch seems intent on providing a unique connection with both the game’s characters and storyline. Personalized customization helps promote this attachment, allowing players to delve into their very own dark and gritty reality within the game.

This world is on the verge of a futuristic cold war, with radical climate change imploring various parties to fight over what are becoming very limited resources. Houston and Blundell mention an in-game feature, the Safe House, presenting players with the option of reading into quite a realistic backstory that presents information in the form of internet press releases and classified intelligence.

Players will discover the effectiveness of the game’s deep-seated storyline come November 6 when the game drops for PS4, Xbox One, and PC – as a subtitle in the trailer above informs, the campaign is unfortunately exclusive to next-gen consoles and PC.

PS3 and Xbox 360 owners still get to experience the game’s impressive multiplayer mode on the same date, however, so don’t wipe that mark off your calendars just yet.
