With this year’s installment, Call of Duty’s storied multiplayer mode is going full-on nuts with future tech, featuring everything from robots and cyborg body parts to sticks you can use to create mini-earthquakes.
Developer Treyarch announced an upcoming multiplayer beta test phase for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 with the new trailer above, showing off a bunch of new things you can use to kill other players in the game. One of them appears to be a grenade that spawns a bunch of mean little robots that then sting you to death like bees. If the future of warfare is bee robots, that is truly frightening.
You can get in the beta test, which allows the developers to stress test the online portion of the game ahead of launch to make sure nothing catches fire when all the real players hop on, by preordering Black Ops 3. It starts on Aug. 19 on Playstation 4 and Aug. 26 on Xbox One.
