Yesterday the official Call of Duty Twitter account began sending out fictitious tweets about a terrorist attack in Singapore. It was the kind of stunt that could have easily gone horribly wrong, but in this case, nobody misinterpreted what was a clear advertising ploy, and Activision followed up the tweets with the unveiling of a new Black Ops 3 trailer. This is the first trailer to go deep into the story of the game.
“In our quest to create the ultimate soldier, we’ve pushed for the enhancement of our greatest weapon: our mind. But with this new power comes an unimaginable new threat,” the description reads. As most figured, the plot involves the widespread use of futuristic bioweapons and their abuse at the hands of terrorists.
You can find out what happens November 6, when Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is released. Note that if the story in this video interests you, you probably want the Playstation 4 or XBox One versions of Black Ops 3. Due to technological limitations, the PS3 and 360 versions of the game won’t have a single-player mode.
