So uhhhhh…is Cyberpunk slowly coming back? Because if it is I wasn’t invited to the meeting. Only a week (probably more) after the debut of the new installment in the Deus Ex series; Mankind Divided. Treyarch has released trailers for their new Cyberpunk themed installment of Call of Duty. This one serves as the third installment in the Black ops series, and will presumably be titled as ‘Black Ops 3: Humanity Subtracted’. Anyway this iteration certainly shares many themes (suspiciously…I jest), with Deus Ex albeit swapping out ‘augmented’ folk with ‘modified’ ones.
The similarities are certainly striking; both games feature gruff male protagonists with sleek black robot arms, that do a lot of stuff our arms can’t (challenge accepted?). I’ll admit that while I don’t care much for COD these days, the gameplay trailer definitely had some cool moments, like robot arm turning into a death canon kind of moments. Check out the gameplay trailer embedded below, and above that check out a cool live action promotional short. It reminds me a lot of the early marketing videos for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and in a good way.
Oh and the Zombies are back!
Shut up and take my…money??
