Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Will Be Set in a “Dark and Twisted Future”

Published

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is a sure thing based on the teaser trailer that was released earlier today. The official website has been updated as well, and inside the source code a few small, but notable details have leaked regarding the setting and premise of the game.

According to the description, Black Ops III will take place in a, “dark, twisted future where a new breed of Black Ops soldiers emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the technology.”  The description goes on to call Black Ops III the, “deepest and most ambitious Call of Duty ever”, which is said for every Call of Duty title that’s released so I’d basically ignore that statement if I were you.

You can read the full description for yourself just below:

Call of Duty®: Black Ops 3 is the first title for next-gen hardware in the critically acclaimed Black Ops series. Developed by Treyarch, the award-winning creator of the two most played games in Call of Duty® history. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 deploys players into a dark, twisted future where a new breed of Black Ops soldiers emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the technology we created to stay ahead, in a world where cutting-edge military robotics define warfare. With three unique game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombies, it providing fans with the deepest and most ambitious Call of Duty ever.

Treyarch’s Call of Duty games have usually included more compelling campaigns than their counterparts at Infinity Ward, and the game has also benefited from the 3 year development cycle allowed for every Call of Duty title now as well. It’ll be interesting to see if Treyarch continues what they started with Black Ops III by offering a bit more player choice in the mostly linear campaigns Call of Duty is known for.

We’ll have to just wait and see as the game will officially be revealed on April 26th. Stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for further updates regarding Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Pokémon

Game Freak, best known for the Pokémon franchise, is starting to emphasize and prioritize original game creation.

In an interview with Video Game Chronicle, Masayuki Onoue, a director at Game Freak, says that the company has launched Gear Project, an initiative in which developers pitch ideas during slower periods between big releases to create more original games other than just Pokémon.

Onoue also spoke about Production Team 1 and Team 2 at Game Freak, the first prioritizing Gear Project for the company as a whole and the second focusing on Pokemon. He noted that Gear Project allows the developers to gain more experience working on different platforms such as PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, as well as transferring new skills and techniques they learned back to the Pokémon team.

Some of the games that Game Freak has released so far through Gear Project are HarmoKnight, Pocket Card Jockey, Tembo the Badass Elephant, and Giga Wrecker. Game Freak is also developing Town, an RPG game that was shown off in a Nintendo Direct back in September 2018 and is due out this year.

Additionally, Game Freak is working on Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the latest entries in Nintendo’s flagship franchise. Both of those are set to release later this year.
