Black Ops 3's latest trailer doesn't look anything like Call of Duty

New, 12 comments

We promise this is a trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

That said, there's not a frame that looks like anything Call of Duty-esque until about 3:08 into a video that is 3:49 long. It touts "Shadows of Evil," a survival co-op experience starring four film noir-ish characters played by Ron Perlman, Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham and Neal McDonough.

It appears the backstory to "Shadows of Evil" involves four people who have done some very bad things, and get dragged into zombie-dimension to atone for their wickedness. It appears the characters have themed attacks, so, watch out for that overhand right from Hellboy.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, whose main story is set about 120 years after the 1940s, launches Nov. 6 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One, with an abridged version for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 lacking the single-player campaign.
