Watch Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's Thrilling Story Trailer

"Not even my mind is safe."


Activision on Wednesday released the first full-length story trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, which dives into what happens when human augmentation goes wrong.

There is a lot to take in. The video starts out with news broadcast-style footage of a world ravaged by natural and what appear to be man-made disasters. "We wanted a perfect future, and f**k, we got it," the narrator says, adding, "I wanted to be a killing machine and they made me one." Watch the video below.

"In our quest to create the ultimate soldier, we've pushed for the enhancement of our greatest weapon: our mind," the video's description reads. "But with this new power comes an unimaginable new threat."

A crow makes numerous appearances in the video, but only in small flashes. What's more, a character at the end bears an uncanny resemblance to Law & Order actor Christopher Meloni (see below).

Black Ops III launches on November 6 for all platforms. The last-generation versions of the shooter do not have a campaign mode, which this video points out at the beginning. This new video follows Call of Duty's viral marketing for the game where it live-tweeted a fake terrorist attack.

What do you make of this trailer? Let us know in the comments below.
