Plot of the game

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has taken gaming to a higher level. With the futuristic setting of 2065, it marks forty years since the sequel setting of Black Ops II. To say the least, technology has greatly advanced. At this point, Air defense campaigns have the power to cancel each other out. In light of this, warfare between countries has become complex and is undertaken by covert operatives hiding and fighting right behind enemy lines. Science and technology has taken over and a lot of changes on human beings have been done.

What scientists consider progress is receiving great opposition from society; which is protesting the dehumanization of the world. In particular, military technology has changed the face of warfare and robotics have become the main feature in the battlefield. Super-soldiers have been developed to take up operations and in this regard, humans are no longer flesh and blood but a good portion of machine as well. In a way, there is a robotic takeover in warfare making the rules change significantly as the world struggles to embrace this evolution.

The game follows the story of a team of black ops or super-soldiers just like in the previous Black Ops series. Their super-soldier capabilities are even more fascinating and the possibilities are mind blowing to say the least.
