Dark Horse has announced that it will be publishing a prequel comic series for Call of Duty: Black Ops III ahead of the game’s launch in November.
A post on the publisher’s blog confirms that the series will simply be titled “Call of Duty: Black Ops III,” and provided the following synopsis:
A prequel to the highly-anticipated game, the Call of Duty®: Black Ops III comic book series follows an elite group of soldiers as they wage a secret war across a futuristic war-torn world transformed by technology. In the bullet-ridden first issue, the team infiltrates Tashkent, Uzbekistan to take down a double agent . . . but as they close in, they uncover something much more sinister at hand.”
Also in the blog post, Dark Horse confirmed that those attending San Diego Comic-Con can stop by the Dark Horse booth or Activision installation to pick up a free Black Ops III mini-comic next week.
Black Ops III is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 on November 6th. At Sony’s E3 press conference, the publisher announced that Black Ops III’s DLC will come to PlayStation platforms first.
