Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is set in the year 2060…35 years after Black Ops 2. Countries around the world have developed a technology called DEAD (Directed Energy Air Defense) which has rendered air superiority useless. Military strength in this game is all on boots on the ground.

New technology includes the all new DNI. DNI is the Direct Neutral Interface, which gives soldiers complete control of their physiology. It will allow players to integrate with computer systems, like enhanced limbs. The title also features a new item called Cyber Cores, which are special powers that can be used at anytime in the campaign. Some examples of this are “immolation,” which lets you set things on fire; “remote hijack,” lets you take control of drones and other remote controlled items.

In addition, the leak on co-op player was accurate. The title’s campaign can be played with friends, up to four, online and features much more open style space and arenas.

    How many articles can 1 post in a hour?

  • Rorke File

    The Campaign is too futuristic and the MP will suck because of that. The wall running is being a confirmation it´s Titanfall 2. Just want a COD with feets on the ground like Bo2.

    • Dr. Salim

      The main difference between Titanfall and BO3 is, well, the titans.

    • SyKe Deadeye

      Dude, don’t hate on it until you try it. Just because it looks like Titanfall with no Titans, dosent mean it will be bad

      • Guywithbrains

        And actually that wall running looked epic to me.

        We have reasons to hate. We CoD has fucked up the past 2 and halo 5 AND star wars battlefront comes out this year. What will BO3 do to get a lot of people back on cods side?

        • SyKe Deadeye

          I’ve been playing since cod 4, I have seen and played through the ups and downs to cod, personally, I’m not a big fan of AW, ghost was ok, but definatly not what it should have been. Never the less, I’ve played through them and done competitive since BO2, currently working twards going pro. Like I said, I personally do not like aw at all, but continue playing through it. Everyone has the right to judge it, but not to hate. At the end of the day, their are people who worked their a** off to bring good entertainment out, but sometimes they fall short, they fell short of ghost and AW. Do not hate on BO3, even if it fails. Besides, Treyarch has not let us down yet.

          • Black

            I’m just curious.. what are you guys hating about Ghosts? I personally like the game and I don’t see any problem on it.

          • Carrisi

            I agree, but after two years of dissapointment fans have the right to be a bit sceptical about another change of direction for CODs playable aspect. I’ve been on cod since cod4 like you and this will be the first year I’m not buying the yearly update.

        • Adrian Rivera III

          Idk I hear this same nonsense every year and COD still manages to break records and have great numbers

          • HenryDF

            Exactly. Every year there’s a new CoD killer. Every year it…well, doesn’t kill CoD.

          • CoDforever

            2011: BF3 gonna kill cod

            2012: Halo 4 gonna kill cod

            2013; BF4, Titanfall and Killzone gonna kill cod

            2014: Halo MCC, Destiny and BF hardline gonna kill cod

            Lmao, look how all that turned out. nothings killing cod. and look whaat people are saying

            2015: Star wars and halo 5 gonna kill cod

          • ethan

            well the star wars might be close but it probably wont beat it

          • Agent Kruger


        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Halo sucks

        • Owen Cernetic

          I hope Austin

        • Ali-G is better than Ali-A

          We have yet to get a good Star Wars game. Don’t get your hopes up.

          We have had good CoD games.

          Historical evidence says that, SW:BF will not kill CoD.
          Take a chunk out of BO3 sales? Yes probably.

        • Agent Kruger

          You’re still going to buy it though, huh?

      • Rorke File

        I don’t prefer a COD that isn’t at the ground. The new class system sounds awesome but the movement and robots I see…..

      • the specialist

        it does not look like Titanfall.Titanfall is awesome.this is not. 😉

    • HenryDF

      Your logic is flawed. I might as well say,

      “The timed special ability it’s confirmation it’s Destiny 2. The bow is confirmation it’s Crysis 3.5. The jumping is confirmation it’s Advanced Warfare 2.”

      Just go away. Please.

      • Rorke File

        You can’t say this COD anymore.

    • Adrian Rivera III

      And this is coming from a Ghosts fan lol

      • Rorke File

        Couldn’t come on an other name, and Ghosts was also a flop.

    • Owen Cernetic

      Titanfall was great

  • Ryumoau

    nice. i like what i’m hearing about the campaign so far. The reveal trailer was cool but didn’t seem to give me as much of a feel of the story as the Advanced Warfare reveal last year. Hopefully we’ll see more videos posted soon. 🙂

    • zipher123

      AW’s trailer was a lot of exposition by Spacey. BO2 kinda did the same thing with Woods. This trailer was different, it was more about the gameplay.

      • Looked like a Launch or Gameplay Trailer eather than a reveal. Hope a Story trailer comes soon.

      • Ryumoau

        yeah when you put it like that it was kind of nice to see gameplay as the focus. i still hope we’ll get a more story driven trailer later on too.

    • Naqash Liaqat

      Doesn’t it remind you a lot about Destiny, the thrust, controlling drones, etc.

      • Ryumoau

        yeah but i’m hoping Black Ops 3 has a better story because Destiny’s story was awful.

  • Does anyone know if the game has falling damage?

    • HenryDF

      Doubt it. Wouldn’t really make sense if it did.

    • dplusj

      You can have robotic legs and arms so it won’t hurt you to fall on steel

  • Dr. Salim

    Lol I already figured out the name of a weapon in the game.

  • Bolbi Stroganovsky

    No thanks

    • w

      yes to that Arab woman, am right fellas?

      • Choppabro2psn

        You are

    • Tricky VIk

      “I wonder what you search that you gets Ads like that..”

    • SoulTaker

      What do you have against Arab women dude????

    • Blaine

      Dude what? Arab babes are sexy as hell!

  • TheTripleJBrothers

    Don’t forget everyone, not all walls are runable.

    • True to that. My theory: magnetic boots that allow you to stick to the surfice.

      • Kobrah

        I reckon a diagonal thruster pushes you against the wall

  • I just wanted to say (brag) I predicted this back in January and I was right!

    • HenryDF

      I mean, it’s not as if this was unlikely.

      • No one knew there would be robot soldiers

        • HenryDF

          No one knew there was going to be anything. But it was certainly possible, as it was possible the game was going to be Black Ops 3. You weren’t the only person I saw mention it pre-reveal.

          • I’m not saying I was the only person. I’m just saying I was right about something not many people expected.

          • DJSaviD

            everyone expected it lol

          • Really now? Lol. Everyone thought there’d be robot soldiers? Please show me someone else that said that back in January or before that.

    • Sexy Mcgee

      But did you know the game was going to have MAGIC!

      “special powers that can be used at anytime in the campaign. Some examples of this are “immolation,” which lets you set things on fire”

    • U0017687T848J8

      And only one retweet.

      Your predictions don’t mean jack shit to nobody.. except that one.. Mrs Hill maybe?

  • HenryDF

    Anyone know when special editions of the game normally get announced?

    • just me

      August, at the end of multiplayer reveal

      • HenryDF

        Nuuu but I want to pre-order now ;-;

        • Random

          Pre-order now then. You can then just update your pre-order to whichever special edition you want when they’re announced. Usually by paying a deposit. That’s how it works here anyway.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Don’t forget Gore system is back

    • Had no doubt it would be back. It’s Treyarch.

    • Wait is that a rumor or is it confirmed?

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Treyarch confirmed it, and theater mode is back

    • Mobin Amanzai

      What’s Gore system?

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        In world at war it had a Gore system where you can shoot off limbs. In this game, Gore is all over the place.

        • Mobin Amanzai

          Is that for zombies only or campaign too?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            All modes.

  • DJ Khaled

    It does seem like activation has caught up with the times this year.
    Co-op campaign
    actually showing multipayer before and at E3 (we always had to wait until september for some reason.
    Still not pre-ordering!

  • AstraeusCentral

    I’m confused, this article says the game will be set in 2060, but the “ember” teaser went all the way to 2065. So will it be like AW where you advance a few years in time, or is it pre-set to a single year?

    • Maybe there’s time travel as we saw on the website where some guy from the 2060’s talks to someone from the 2030’s

  • Aceshigh87

    I just wish we could hear confirmation about whether or not the campaign Co-Op can also be done split screen. No one else I actually hang out with buys CoD and I can’t deal with playing something strategic with random people on the internet. I’m really hoping the “4 player online” also includes up to 2 player split screen like it has with Zombies / Extinction in the past few years. I don’t even really need 4 player split screen, just enough that me and a buddy can finally play a Co-Op campaign in CoD (loved it in WaW) and we don’t have to buy a second console and copy of the game to do it.

  • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

    Why the fuck is this black ops 3 and not a new IP? Nothing to do with bo1 or 2, just milking the black ops name.

    • Random

      And you know that how? There has be NOTHING concrete released aboutt he story, it could involve flashback missions, relations to Mason and Woods, anything. We just don’t know yet.

  • hunner

    So what the hell did those snapchat teasers have to do with the future? lmao

  • Logan

    I’m pumped to play with my friends on co op campaign, just like we did in World at War!

  • TheShadowReaper

    That’s exactly what i wanted to see, 4 player co-op but of course it has to be Treyarch to get us out of the pile of shit that we are in with CoD. Leave it to the experts, not the kiddies at IW and wannabe coders at SHG…

    • IW is rebuilding and SHG is new to the COD scene. Can’t blame them entirely. and it’s also too early to tell if Treyarch will “save us” with BO3. This game could potentially suck. Who knows. I doubt it will, but I’ve been wrong before about COD games being good (ghosts)

      • TheShadowReaper

        tbh i also not blaming SHG entirely cause they are indeed new to the COD scene, but still, they are leaps and bounds behind Treyarch right now, but i believe they will catch up at some point.

        as for IW…i have lost all faith this developer group will ever again produce a good game, let alone a good COD game. doesnt matter if they rebuild fully 10 times. they need to do something really good to impress me.

        and yes i agree. its too early to say if BO3 will be this “saving grace” for COD as a franchise and i dont think it will be, but it will be a solid addition to the COD name. that much is guaranteed simply by seeing “Treyarch” as the developer though.

  • My biggest fear is that the campaign will be in the same style as titanfall (no story pretty much…) i would prefer if the co-op was the same as [email protected]

    • Underdog BO1 FTW!

      call of duty always have the best campaign…. Even ghosts

  • Praise vonderhaar

  • Diego Diniz

    I just want GOOD MAPS + GOOD STREAKS + NO LAG!!!
    Am I asking too much ???
