News & Announcements


Well, it looks like Treyarch let the dogs out.
In today's official reveal of Black Ops III, Call of Duty fans were presented with a dark, violent, and futuristic visual experience of the next Treyarch title. Human augmentation took gameplay mechanics to the next CoD level by introducing several game-changing factors such as wall running, melee-to-weapon transformation, underwater combat, and even a quick (and I mean QUICK) sneak peak to our new Zombies mode.
But not everyone is allowed onto the hype train.
According to Treyarch Studio head Mark Lamia, the past generation consoles - Xbox 360, Playsation 3, and Wii-U - are not in the studio's priority for porting the upcoming game into. This means the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC will be bringing home the trophy. How better to explain it than Lamia himself:

Over the course of the day we saw a lot of Black Ops 3 info come out due to several released images from Gamestop and their Black Ops 3 marketing material. We've compiled everything we learned today for your reading and viewing pleasure down below.

Based upon another piece of Black Ops 3 marketing material in the form of a poster, we've learned that the game will be released on November 6th of this year and that there will be a beta for the game. Beta access is awarded to those who preorder the game.







With the official Black Ops 3 reveal just three days away, fans around the world would have been forgiven for not expecting to hear much more, if anything from our friends over at Treyarch until the big day on the 26th of April. However, Treyarch have been making a habit of doing things out of the ordinary, GKNova 6 and more recently the Snapchat viral are clear examples of this, and so with just three days remaining until we get the official reveal, Treyarch have released yet another teaser trailer for us to sink our teeth into. Titled "Ember", the new teaser focuses on the use of a mixture of both archive footage and live action film to draw us into the moral argument of when science goes too far, and whether or not the government could be hiding just how advanced the technology we have really is. It also seemed to gravitate upon the year 2065, 50 years into our future, which has sparked speculation about whether this could be the year that Black Ops 3 will be set.

One thing is clear; as always Treyarch are going all out to get everyone as hyped as possible before the release of the next game in the Call of Duty series. We only have to wait three more days until we get to see exactly what Treyarch have installed for us over the coming weeks.
