Armed and dangerous

Call of Duty: Black Ops III's pack shot will pay homage to its predecessors – despite the fact that its seemingly ditching the Cold War for, er, advanced warfare. The cover – which has leaked onto Reddit ahead of the release's big weekend reveal – shows a suited soldier equipped with all kinds of technical wizardry sitting slumped in front of some Roman numerals.

There are a couple of things that we can glean from the art work: the helmet appears to come equipped with some kind of visor, suggesting that you'll be able to use various nifty vision enhancements, while the weapons have ammunition indicators on the sides of them. Presumably this means that Advanced Warfare's in-game HUD will make the jump.

We should find out a lot more later today, when Treyarch is set to blow the doors off its hotly anticipated title.
