The teaser trailer does little to reveal what players can expect from this year’s Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War. It does not touch on gameplay, platforms, or any specific story. We only know that the upcoming shooter is inspired by true story events. The trailer features a speech from a real KGB defector to help push the realism of the video game’s setting.
The trailer touches on a Soviet spy named “Perseus” who the Soviet Union sent into the U.S to ensure Soviet dominance during the arms race. According to historic documents, Perseus was responsible for stealing US nuclear secrets from the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos.

The ARG also included a variety of video tapes, each corresponding to a year in Cold War history, with similar clips to the ones in this teaser.[/perfectpullquote]
