Black Ops 6 live-action trailer teases Gulf War setting

Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will get a full reveal on June 9, but until then, Activision is teasing its player base with a new live-action reveal trailer that dropped this week. Earlier this month, it was initially teased that this year's Call of Duty would be the next Black Ops title. Because Microsoft confirmed this when it announced the next Xbox Showcase. It's after this showcase that players will get their first full look at the upcoming game.

After the Showcase, Microsoft will hold a Black Ops 6 Direct. Complete with a wealth of details about the game, including the full reveal trailer. There will likely be some developer insights and other discussions as well. Not much different than what Bethesda did for Starfield before launch. To get players excited, Activision released the first reveal trailer for Black Ops 6 on May 28. It's a kind of live-action trailer that sets the tone for the game's setting.

Neither Activision nor Microsoft have confirmed what kind of war story the game will revolve around. But there are rumors that it will be about the Gulf War in the 1990s. This week's reveal trailer seems to more or less confirm that.

Black Ops 6's live-action reveal trailer features numerous global political leaders

The trailer doesn't show any gameplay footage. Activision is saving that for the big direct. What the trailer does show is a series of conversations between global political leaders. This includes Bill Clinton, George HW Bush, Colin Powell, Margaret Thatcher and Saddam Hussein. These all played a crucial role in the Gulf War.

This makes it pretty clear where the game's story is going. The trailer is short and contains no real mention of the narrative details. Again, this is something that will most likely come up during the direct in a few weeks. But it's not hard to imagine with the picture the trailer paints.

'The truth lies' is a central theme

The only other piece of information that keeps coming up in all of Activision's teasers is that “the truth lies.” In the beginning of the trailerYou can hear Bill Clinton say, “The truth is, your whole life is a lie.” You don't really see all these political leaders talking to each other. Because the trailer is shot in such a way that there is only one person on screen at a time. Everything is also draped in shade.

However, at the end it seems like all these people are talking to each other in a top secret meeting.
