'Call of Duty: Black Ops III' news: Live action trailer unveiled; Marshawn Lynch, Michael B. Jordan, Cara Delevingne join player named Kevin in-game


A few days before the release of “Call of Duty: Black Ops III” on Nov. 6, a live action trailer for the video game debuted during the NFL’s Sunday Night Football. It stars Michael B. Jordan, Cara Delevingne, and Seattle Seahawk’s running back Marshawn Lynch. 

Directed by Wayne McClammy, the 1-minute-45-second trailer is narrated by Jordan. It follows the story of a man named Kevin who jumps, wall-runs, power slides, and single-handedly kills enemies and zombies in a place that looks like the in-game maps of “Call of Duty.”

Lynch appears and goes on Beast Mode to kill the enemies using a high-powered machine gun. However, Kevin defeats him with his more superior weapons and skills. The latter displays more of his abilities until he is killed by Delevingne with a blast as she jumps from above ground.

The trailer ends with the words, “There’s a soldier in all of us.”

Since it was posted on YouTube last Nov. 1, the trailer has already received more than 3.5 million views and more than 56,000 likes. 

“Call of Duty: Black Ops III” is now available for pre-order from the game’s website. The video game can be played on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC depending on the edition of the game that will be purchased. Price starts at $59.88 for the Standard Edition.
