Takes place in the future, 2025. So there will be a lot of unmanned things.

The plot seems to revolve around some enemy faction taking over all the unmanned things and taking out Los Angeles this time.

Upsized Quadrotors also seem to be a very prominent element.

Good news about the future setting. It's an indication that the industry realizes how tapped-out modern war is, as a basic for all these samey grey shooting games. It's a more honest setting for Black Ops' absurdity, without betraying anything like Ghost Recon.

Even ArmA is doing it, obviously.

Another COD woopdy doo. Also don't bring up Arma3's future setting in comparison to this, much less when it showcased a future setting before this and is not as balls to the wall as this, nor is it as sci fi as the others.

Too bad Arma 3 and Other games will keep me occupied.

This new approach looks dumb too me. I laughed when I saw the horses what did everything get EMP'd?

Like publishers/game devs did WW2 theme to death they will probably do it with future and superfuture setting. Where is the creativity or innovative gameplay/design with only profit and customer retention ruling the decisions? On the other hand just look at US market and see how many people just like + buy such simple shooter games.

I keep thinking maybe they'll surpass COD4. Maybe they'll come up with something the sets the bar as high as COD4 did. Maybe they'll come up with something innovative.

Every damn time they prove me wrong. I guess this is what happens when the majority of your audience is made up of mouth-breathing idiots - you can get away with it.

It looks like COD4 will always be the best COD.

Fancy trailer :) Horse riding is a game play element... diversity... it helps keeping things fresh to a certain degree. It will still be a rail shooter, I don't expect anything fresh out if it.
Oh...and why did they have to bring woods back to life...

Walking robot combat machines in 2025? No way. It took fifty years and counting to replace the M16 rifle, it will take at least another 50 years to replace the human element. Sure, technology is advancing, but the time between research and actual deployment is long, and will also be dictated by need. Why would you need walking battle tanks when the other side still uses T-55?

Apart from that, it's CoD. That means that you cannot go for a minute without something exploding.

Good thing ArmA 3 is coming :)

Looks alright, but then I think that about every CoD these days. Pretty good mindless fun...

But still, horses! :)

I sometimes believe I'm watching some kind of joke whenever a new Cod is announced,but then I realize that millions of people actually pay for this shit.Damn it I forgot to shut off my brain whenever I watch a new CoD trailer,now I have to judge it for what it is.
Mucho grande explosions-check
Linear driving\riding\piloting-check
Press button and something awesome happens(trademark from Bioware)-check
Respawning enemy waves unless you advance-check
We just need some new advanced gameplay mechanics like AI opening the doors for you and auto-aim...oh wait they already introduced those,wonder whats next.
Instead forking 50$ for this crap better watch some Michael Bay flick,it's really the same and you won't feel guilty for encourage them to produce this "game?" every year.

It looks terribly thought-out. 2025? Basically one decade away. That level of technology is either 2050+, or just never.
I'm just so glad that BIS didn't envision the near future to be SO DARN CAMP. And cliche.

I haven't played any COD games since the first one, which I got for Christmas and completed by Boxing day; was left thoroughly disappointed!

No they are not, that´s just PR BS. The gameplay will be the same, you will get a few new gadgets, that´s about it.
Posted Image Master of testing for a better Arma and well, for science.
Teach the AI how to drive. Teach AI Tank drivers to turn their front towards the enemy. Give us supression effects for AI . Make AI ragdoll if they get hit. Give us proper animations for throwing Frags. Give us a proper wounding system. Fix the armored vests so that they don´t protect the whole torso. More Civilian assets. Females. Weapon resting. Give us inertia influenced movement depending on the Weapon you have.

It's like CoD became a parody of itself.

Walking robots? Horses? Hahaha
ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"

Guess two years post-release aren't enough to make ArmA3 at least half as dumbed down.

The horses were the only thing I liked about the trailer. It's probably inspired by the invasion of Afganistan. The Northern Alliance and Army special forces charged Taliban BMPs and Shilkas on horseback, under cover of airstrikes. It was on the way to take Mazar-e-Sharif. You can read about in some book called Horse Soldiers or something.

So eat crow, everyone.
