Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Website Reveals Future Setting and Zombies
The official website for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has launched, bringing with it some insight on what we can expect from the next Treyarch installment of the gigantic shooter franchise.
While the only thing shown on the site is the teaser trailer we've been watching since yesterday trying to glean secrets from, a quick venture into CallofDuty.com's source code turns up this official description:
"Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is the first title for next-gen hardware in the critically acclaimed Black Ops series. Developed by Treyarch, the award-winning creator of the two most-played games in Call of Duty history. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 deploys players into a dark, twisted future where a new breed of Black Ops soldier emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the technology we created to stay ahead, in a world where cutting-edge military robotics define warfare. With three unique game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer and Zombies, providing fans with the deepest and most ambitious Call of Duty ever."
Just in that paragraph alone we see "dark, twisted future," "cutting edge military robotics," "new breed of Black Ops soldier," and "Zombies," which checks everything off of what we expected to read. We had a feeling that Treyarch would be bringing back Zombies, as they started it way back with World at War, but to see it made official is a wonderful thing. At the same time, we weren't expecting to dive that far into the future based on the franchise's previous game.
Another interesting thing to note, as Polygon points out, is the Treyarch Facebook page recently posting a lot of science articles about "bio-hacking," embedded implants (especially to the eye), and giant Navy lasers. Could these just be interests of whoever runs Treyarch's social media, or are they showing their hand a bit? We'll have to wait and see.
The full reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops III is coming April 26th, and we'll have full coverage of it once more information is deployed.
