Call of Duty: Black Ops III's First Trailer Shows a Gritty, Cybernetic Future

Call of Duty: Black Ops III will release for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 6, 2015.

Another year, another Call of Duty. This year, it's a new title in the Black Ops sub-franchise - Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Like Advanced Warfare before it, Black Ops III eschews the traditional gritty-realism modern warfare of the franchise for gritty-realism near-future warfare. Today, Activision has given us a glimpse into the game with its first official trailer, as well as revealing some more information on the title's launch and beta.

First, check out the trailer to the right, which sets the scene for the game with Paint it Black by The Rolling Stones accompanying images of soldiers becoming more and more cybernetically augmented to the point that their very humanity is being questioned. Sounds a bit like something I've played before....

Next, Activision confirmed that the game would be launching on November 6 this year, for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. There will also be an open multiplayer beta for all three platforms that players can join simply by pre-ordering the game, although no date was announced for it.

We also learned a little bit about some changes to the game's multiplayer, with the major one being that Team Fortress 2 or Battlefield 4-style "classes" are used in place of the generic solider. Each class will have its own special ability and unique weapons.

So there you go! It won't be too long now before you'll get to play the next installment of the Madden of multiplayer shooters!
