Editors' note: This story contains Call of Duty: Black Ops story spoilers.
Treyarch has published a new video that offers a timeline of the events and characters that make up the Call of Duty: Black Ops universe. This is a good way to catch up on the story so far in the run-up to Call of Duty: Black Ops III's release in November. But be warned, this is a 10-minute video that is mostly text.
The story spans more than 100 years, beginning with Viktor Reznov's birth in April 1913 and ends where the events of Call of Duty: Black Ops II capped off in fictional 2025 with the death of Raul Menendez.
This video doesn't dive into the events of Black Ops III, but we know the game picks up in 2065, 40 years after the events of Black Ops II. Human augmentation is everywhere in this future.
