Call of Duty: Black Ops III teased

It’s about that time of year. Time for Activision to start teasing the new Call of Duty. Of course, thanks to the studio rotation, it’s time to return to everyone’s favourite COD makers, Treyarch. This means that they can use Black Ops II to build a bit of marketing buzz, but they’re doing it in a strange new way.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II got an update recently, adding a mysterious little touch to the console versions. Of course this was picked up by a YouTuber, Drift0r. Here is his video exposing the Viral Campaign for Black Ops 3 inside of Black Ops 2.

For those who don’t want to watch, the most important part is this image – a poster shown on two maps in Blops 2 which have a new ghost icon.

COD snapchat

The icon is actually a snapchat QR code which causes you to make Call of Duty your friend on the app. Unlike everyone else on snapchat, though, they don’t seem to want to send pictures of their genitalia. At least, not yet. The first Snapchat is now live:

I’m listening to the sound of the voice, but I’m not sure I’m understanding much more about this viral marketing campaign. I suppose we’ll hear more by the end of the month. Usually announcements with names and details for the games come at the end of April with some teasing in the weeks before. I suppose it’s teasing time and we’ll get confirmation of name and what to expect in a few weeks.

Will a return to Black Ops herald a return to glory for the franchise? Are you excited to play this one as compared to the other new titles, or have you just become too jaded about Call of Duty titles?

        What can I say, you can polish a turd as much as you like. But at the end of the day a turd is still a turd.

          Yeah! I know! But just as much as you might hate CoD, the usual hate comments that go along with it is getting stale. Can we as gamers not find something else to moan about, like say, the silly hat worn by the protagonist in Bloodborne?

            Thats “the hunter’s hat” just one of many hats you can wear in Bloodborne. So what you’re trying to say doesnt make any sense…

            As much as it is silly for me to complain about a protagonist’s hat(s), so it is silly to complain about a series of games you know is getting a yearly release. Accept this. And leave those that want to read about it in peace.

      How are these games “shit”? What classifies a game to be “shit”? If they don’t appeal to you, much the same that anime doesn’t appeal to me, does that make anime “shit”?

      I really feel sorry for the developers behind these titles; they work extremely long hours for months to meet the deadlines for these games. They do it to earn a living. We all have jobs that we hate, and being a developer is much the same – except we don’t have to constantly read comments like yours calling something that they’ve spent months working on “shit”.

      On the contrary, the graphics engine, the sound effects and the game play are all pretty top-notch. Again, define “shit”.

    I wonder if they’re going to do the whole “Rockstar shouldn’t get too comfortable with their sales records” thing again, especially if this is the 3rd iteration of the 7th copy and paste version of the generic online fps copy of the not much more than average shooter?

    Call of Duty Black Ops two broke my 1st edition ps3 console, which gave me many a years enjoyment. (luckily it broke as the PS4 came out) I will hate this franchise till the day I die (or really want to play it again). When we seeing a plot set in the second or first world wars again. Ill pass on this.

    gamer_offers 77$/Hourly by doing this.’.. < i started working online, completing some basic jobs that only requires from you a computer and internet access and I am happier than ever… It's been 6 months since i started this and i got paid so far total of 36,000 bucks… Basicly i profit close to 80 bucks/h and work for 3-4 hrs most of the days.Best part to whole this thing is that you can decide when to work yourself and for how long and you get a paycheck at the end of each week.

    Maybe its not the voice you need to concentrate on, but rather the distinct light pattern made on the ground through the trees.
