Call of Duty: Black OPS III said to be a "twisted narrative experience"

Call of Duty Black OPS 3 Story is dark and twisted

It has been years since the dark events of Activision's Call of Duty Black Ops II were concluded. 40 years have gone by and now the events of Call of Duty Black Ops lll take place in the storyline. According to the Developer Treyarch, Call of Duty Black Ops lll is even darker and more twisted than its predecessors.

In an interview conducted by Gamespot, Studio Design Director David Vonderhaar said:

"A lot of the mystery of the latest trailer and all the story stuff is there because there is some really screwed up mind-f***ery going to happen to you when you play the game. That's the Black Ops narrative, that's intentional in design." 

The story is easy to understand even if you have not played the previous games. The story is of the narration of a black ops operative. Your fellow operatives have gone off the grid which is strange considering that you are constantly connected in the world this game takes place in. The overall mission that starts the story is that a large amount of military intelligence has been leaked, and you are in charge of finding out why. 

Vonderhaar explained that as you investigate, the narrative told along the way is a "huge weavy story; a very deep, very dark, and sometimes really twisted narrative experience."

It seems Activision is pulling out all their tricks to make this story a dark experience for the player. It seems like the story is focused on sending a chill up the player's spin as well as make them think. 

Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be in stores on November 6 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. However, the last gen systems will not have the twisted campaign mode. So, if you want to see this dark story be told, make sure to buy it for a next gen system!


I am a writer who is looking to follow my passions. I love gaming and writing, so one day I hope to write a story that everyone will one day play as a game.
