It’s that time of year. Call of Duty is here again with its annual release. Is there any franchise that is hated more, while being loved by masses? This year’s release sees the return of Treyarch and the Black Ops namesake, as Black Ops 3 gives us more cryptic messages, more intrigue, more explosions, and everyone’s favorite… more zombies.
With the futuristic setting of a war-torn world — one that now sees the use of cybernetic enhancements in human beings — the premise is that technology and robotics have blurred the lines of what is human. Has technology gone too far? And what price to we pay for our advancements? As an operative, you undergo missions to help figure out the cause behind a disaster, as characters you thought were your friends are called into question.
It’s eerily close to Advanced Warfare in terms of plot and execution. And while robotics may progress humankind, does Black Ops 3 progress Call of Duty?
