Call of Duty ‘Know Your Enemy’ Trailer Shows Franchise Going Full Sci-Fi In A Dark Futuristic World

Sun Tzu in his work The Art of War claimed that a warrior should always know their enemy, however he probably did not anticipate anyone screaming at each other through a headset and a computer monitor. Regardless, Infinity Ward just released a a new trailer, in a similar vein, entitled “Know Your Enemy” for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Infinity Ward first announced the game in late March. They stated that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare would examine space combat in a "full on sci-fi" setting in the "very far future". Previous Call of Duty games explored futuristic topics, in particular Black OPs 3 and Advanced Warfare, however this game promises to incorporate these themes to a greater extent. How they plan to do so still has not been revealed.

Besides threatening the viewer with statements such as “we are the architects of your pain,” and “we will build monuments to your destruction,” the teaser does not disclose much about the game. The intimidating man in the armor claims he is from the Settlement Defense Front, which is possibly the new antagonist.

If you attempt to download an image from the trailer, your file will be named, “GenesisReveal_SDF_YouTube_ChannelCover.png”. Some have speculated that Genesis is the name of the character that appears in the trailer. Others have guessed that the creators are using the term Genesis to hint at some sort of “beginning”.

Around the seven second mark of the teaser, the words “Nuketown Offline” flash across the screen. This brief message is likely an advertisement for Black Ops 3. Infinity Ward is known to have cross-promoted games in the past.
