Watch the Call of Duty: Black Ops III reveal trailer

Posted on

After Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare gave the franchise quite the high-tech upgrade, the next entry in the series is continuing that trend with Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Activision revealed the latest game in the first-person shooter franchise, along with a release date—Nov. 6, 2015.

The debut trailer, which you can watch below, is set to the Rolling Stones’ “Paint It Black” and showcases a future full of soldiers with some impressive robotic improvements. The trailer gives an idea of the themes and weapons that will be featured in the game’s campaign, which is set in 2065, while previews have gone up touting what’s in store for the game’s multiplayer.

The biggest change: According to a preview from Polygon, it’s that players will now choose a Specialist before each round of multiplayer, rather than playing as a random soldier. Each specialist is a named character with their own weapon sets and abilities. Allowing for more agile movement has also been a big goal for developert Treyarch.

For fans hoping to see a slice of the game before launch, Activision announced that those who pre-order the game will gain access to Black Ops III‘s multiplayer beta.

The full game, which will include a Zombies mode, arrives in November for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
