Catch Up With Over A Century Of Call Of Duty: Black Ops History

Cancel your plans to replay the first two Call of Duty: Black Ops games to catch up on the storyline—Treyarch’s handy timeline video has you covered.


Dramatic music plays as the series’ timeline is drawn, from the 1930 birth of Victor Reznov to the 2025 death of Raul Menendez. How many people were shot in slow motion during this century and change? How many mothers were cursed? Man.

If I were Treyarch I would have added voiceover to this video and set it to the opening beat of Falco’s “Rock Me Amadeus.”


Call Of Duty: Black Ops III arrives in November, because that’s when Call of Duty games come out.

First the series’s stories started getting more and more bombastic. Then with Black Ops, the subtly cartoonish main characters got ridiculously cartoonish.
