The words “Call of Duty” are enough to put a lot of people off, but perhaps not when it starts to venture into cyberpunk territory. Take a look at the latest “Ember” trailer below.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
If you didn’t know it was CoD, you might mistake it for a movie trailer – maybe even for the in-development Deus Ex movie! It sees advances in biotechnology and the rise of cybernetics, as well as the struggle between those who have and those who don’t. Super soldiers and terrorist attacks on biotech corporations add to the cyberpunk fiction, which is good to see.
This new avenue is welcome, but how are Treyarch (the developers) going to surprise us? What new story or gameplay elements will there be that we haven’t seen before in either the Call of Duty or Deus Ex franchises? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
