Treyarch’s upcoming sequel to ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’ – Black Ops 2 – jumps from Vietnam and the Cold War to a new Cold War in a dystopian future consisting robots and unmanned armies. Treyarch just released a trailer for the title today.

The first edition of Call of Duty: Black Ops sold more than 5.6m copies within 24 hours of going on sale in November 2010.

News that the sequel Black Ops 2 will be out on 13 November next emerged last week.

The trailer released by Treyarch today shows a grizzled veteran reminding the world that all the technology in the world aimed at protecting us is useless if the keys fall into the wrong hands.

It shows a future conflict where the keys to sophisticated robot armies of drones and mechs have been captured by terrorists and the free world has to fight back with manual and traditional weapons.

It even shows a sequence on horseback!

Enjoy.
