If you thought Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was some form of insight on what to expect from war in the future then Black Ops 3 is about to push those predictions even further. You might recall the recent Tweet from Eidos Montreal who called Treyarch out for the ‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution’-like trailer? Now there’s the first official trailer that shows off exactly where the franchise is heading next:
It’s been confirmed that there’ll be 4-player co-op, an exciting new Zombie mode and those who pre-orders the game will get access to the open-beta. Here’s what studio lead, Mark Lamia, had to say about the new Zombie mode:

It’s looking like another exciting entry in the series, though I won’t lie. I could really do with a return to World War 2 with current generation specifications in mind. The 4-Player co-op makes it more appealing for me personally.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 launches on 6 November for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Last generation consoles (PS3 and Xbox 360) will not be supported at all. Time for that upgrade if you’ve not yet moved on to the current generation.
