The Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 documentary.

Walking tanks, exo-skeletons, hacker-terrorists. Turns out the fictional future wars of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 aren't that far off, or fictional.

In this six-part Call of Duty video series – part advertisement, part documentary – we hear from retired Lt. Col. Oliver North (of Iran Contra fame), a military expert from think tank Brookings Institution and a special forces major. The trio explore the past advancements in military innovations, the reality of current technology, how some threats and deadly mistakes have already popped up, the threat of hackers and the importance of special forces in future warfare.

It's worth a watch whether you're into Call of Duty or not.
