Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

Story trailer delivers Hollywood values for Treyarch's Black Ops 3

Squeezing in to the end of September, Black Ops 3’s story trailer teases just enough about the human-agumentation-gone-wrong scenario, along with the usual (though by no means routine, this time around) bombastic gameplay and extremely well re-created Hollywood B-listers.

Black Ops 3’s 4-player co-op campaign (which won’t be available at all on last-gen consoles), alongside numerous cusomisable player classes with specific abilities, makes this one of the most exciting Call of Duty titles in a while. For once, the multiplayer isn’t what’s driving me to pick it up; with potential for an experience akin to Destiny (or Halo 5 when it’s released) in co-op terms, the campaign alone is what’s drawing me in, and that’s surprising, and refreshing.

“I wanted to be a killing machine and they made me one.”

Does Call of Duty’s campaign have the same draw for you, or is it a yearly update you pick up for the multiplayer alone?
