Now that’s a huge script.
It seems as if Treyarch will push the envelope in terms of storytelling in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, and will have one of the most intricate stories than any game in the series so far. And it’s not only just the story, the developers are going all out in creating a rich fiction setting as well as lore.
Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia stated the following in an interview with Polygon. “We create a very rich fiction. We look at Black Ops 2 and say, ‘OK, these drone strikes in 2025 occurred. What happens next in the world?’. We have a detailed wiki-like thing in the game. You might remember. You could hack into the computer in Black Ops. It’s in your safe house. It’s in your safe house. We have detailed out the world. We have a full history of where the EU goes. It’s our fiction, but it’s as we have projected it out, literally, in more detail than we’ve ever done.”
Lamia also stated that the soldiers have robots on their sides, and that the soldiers themselves are technologically enhanced. “We’re giving it to the player this time. This is stuff we usually do anyway, with our research. How do we come up with these settings? We literally just did our research and project out. We’re fortunate to have experts we can talk to. We’ve become futurist experts ourselves, living in this subject matter for so long. That’s going to be there for the player. It’s important.”
