It’s nearly the end of the year and you know what THAT means: it’s time for another super-manly, always serious, shooty shooty bang bang, setpiece splosioning, bullet bullet gun gun Call of Duty campaign! And multiplayer mode. That too I guess.

Honestly, I’m only ever interested in Call of Duty for the campaigns because they’re so reliably terrible, but well done at the same time, if that makes any sense? I really wish they’d start selling the campaigns on their own. Or even start peddling a Call of Duty campaign subscription, where you pay R600 and get access to the next three years’ worth of single-player CoD campaigns. Or does that sound too much like a really long-term Season Pass?

Anyway, here’s the story trailer for this year’s Call of Duty. Don’t forget that this single-player campaign is only coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Everyone else left playing on last-gen consoles will just be getting multiplayer, albeit for $50 (about R690) as opposed to $60 (about R830). Come to think of it, that’s basically Activision saying that the single-player campaigns are worth $10 (R140) a pop. I’d pick up a CoD campaign for R140.

Ha! Like Activision would sell it for that cheap.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is out on 06 November 2015 for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Toasters, Tamagotchi machines, and the Atari 2600.
