Black Ops is back. On Friday, November 6, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will thrust players into a dark, gritty future, where cybernetics and biotechnology have given rise to a new breed of soldier. Empowered by Direct Neural Interface (DNI) technology, players will assume the role of Black Ops soldiers that are interconnected, faster, and more lethal than ever in a new four-player co-op campaign and a completely redefined multiplayer experience.

With a new momentum-based, chained movement system that allows players to move fluidly through environments and maintain constant control of their weapon, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is packed with new multiplayer features. In addition to a new weapon customization system that lets players create unique weapon variants, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 introduces the new Specialist system, which lets players choose and rank up nine elite Black Ops soldiers, each with their own unique look, personality, backstory, and devastating weapons and abilities.

And, of course, it wouldn’t be Black Ops without Treyarch’s signature Zombies. While more info will arrive later this year, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Zombies will feature its own unique story and XP progression system, adding new levels of depth and replayability.

Alongside the world reveal trailer—which you can watch via the player above—I’m excited to announce the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC for those that pre-order. Get all of the intel on the beta by checking out
