Oftentimes with FPSs, the whole ‘team' thing goes a little awry. People have a tendency to develop a fatal condition known as Not-Giving-A-Shit-About-Anyone-Else-itis when their beloved K/D is on the line. Particularly so with random matchmaking. Does LeetKillahLolLol87 from Indonesia have you back to the end in a firefight? No, no he doesn't, because he just hauled ass out of there to get a killstreak with a sniper somewhere else on the map. The bastard.

So there's that. There's also this: in the wacky world of Call of Duty, multiplayer is king. You know the old cliche: preteen badasses swearing about our moms in squeaky voices, another dude rapping along with Eminem down the mic, and everyone generally freaking hating each other. This, apparently, is what the game is all about.

But hey, let's pretend that we can all co-operate for a minute here. Let's take an ogle at the latest slice of promo action for Black Ops III, an in-depth look at co op mode.

What we have here is a lengthy tutorial to the co op campaign. It begins with our guy awakening having been pumped up and augmented with all kinds of supersoldier weaponry and tech (check you out with your Direct Neural Interface, whatever the hell that is), and briefly demonstrates how the new Cyber Core system works.Then we get into some standard issue Call of Duty guntastic gameplay, but with a twist: Four player co op, only on next gen systems and PC. Take a look.
