Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 launch trailer puts players 'Back in Black'

The launch trailer for Activision and Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 shows off the future tech players will use to kill each other in the millions starting next month, with some motivational music courtesy of AC/DC.

Black Ops 2's launch trailer, set to classic rock staple "Back In Black," showcases some of the military tech we can all look forward to in the year 2025, including stealth camouflage suits, spider-like spy drones, deadly quadruped robots, high altitude wingsuits, and more. Near future explosions abound in the game's launch trailer, which seems to focus mostly on the campaign set in the next decade. There are hints of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's campaign levels set in the past, which features less sci-fi military weaponry and 100 percent more horse.

Potential spoiler warnings apply, as the launch trailer appears to show snippets throughout the branching single-player campaign.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on November 13th in North America. A Wii U version will be released on November 18th.
