Since Activision recently got a lot of heat due to the last-gen versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 not having a narrative campaign, they went and released a Story Mode trailer.
Activision has made some questionable decisions lately in terms of how it engages its audiences to hype up the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Yesterday, Call of Duty's official Twitter account was remodeled to look like a faux news page. COD's Twitter then started live tweeting updates about a fictional terrorist attack happening in China. Unknown to the social media geniuses who thought this would somehow be a good idea, Southern China was actually in the midst of an actual terrorist attack involving a series of letter bombs, resulting in seven deaths and over 50 injuries.
To add fuel to the fire, Activision revealed that the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Black Ops 3 would not be featuring a Story Mode campaign. Obviously, a LOT of fans were heated about this decision. So what does Activision do a few days later? Release a Story Mode campaign trailer for Black Ops 3.
As with the previous Black Ops games, Treyarch's Story Mode takes some intriguing turns. The most surprising is the decision to go into the future, which some fans may not have liked since last year's Advanced Warfare did the same. Expect cybernetic implants, futuristic weaponry, espionage and thousands of bullets being fired that all look like tracer rounds.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be launching on Nov. 6 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
