The game developer has launched a trailer of Black Ops Cold War, featuring footage of a real-time Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov. The defector claims in the footage that a soviet spy code-named “Perseus” has infiltrated the secret services of Western countries so as to stanch the efforts and create obstacles for the United States during the nuclear armament race in the ’70s. In the trailer, it is claimed that the identity and the whereabouts of Perseus were never discovered. This is the backdrop of Black Ops Cold War and you may expect to fill in the shoes of someone from the US team who goes on a hunt for Perseus.
The trailer just announces the name of the upcoming Black Ops game at the end and for the most part, Bezmenov talks, touching down upon a long term plan needed to ultimately destroy a country from within (the United States, here). The entire process, Bezmenov notes in the trailer, “is a slow process, which we call “active measures” which comprise four steps: demoralization, destabilization, crisis and normalization.
“The time bomb is ticking. With every second, the disaster is coming closer and closer. The danger is real.”, the Bezmenov dialogue ends the trailer. The trailer does not show any of the gameplay or the story but we may expect Activision to reveal more substantial part of the game on the 26th.
