That's what our reviewer, James "Jickle" O'Connor believes, and he was not a fan of Ghosts or even Black Ops 2, which suggests that Treyarch has delivered something pretty decent here.

From his review:
Where do you start with Call of Duty? It’s hard not to wonder, in the lead up to a new Call of Duty game, what the series might have left to give. Gone are the days where these games seemed to actually have something to say about warfare, and although Advanced Warfare showed off some new tricks it hasn’t been clear whether Infinity Ward and Treyarch were going to try new things too. Call of Duty, at its worst (see Call of Duty: Ghosts), can feel pretty soulless, and every year people wonder if the whole enterprise is going to fall apart.

But Call of Duty: Black Ops III feels like something new. It doesn’t reinvent the CoD formula, but it pushes the series much further in the interesting direction Advanced Warfare and Black Ops II were hinting at. It would be hard to go back from the bizarre, exciting, frantic game Treyarch have created here to prior entries in the series. Black Ops III doubles down hard on what came immediately before it – the future tech, the zombies, the increased mobility – and ends up feeling both familiar and fresh.

In a move seemingly taken out of the Mirror's Edge playbook, comes word of a new mode headed to the next Call of Duty. Called Free Run, this mode will set players loose in an obstacle course where they'll need to use their movement skills and jet-powered double jumps to navigate through various, err, obstacles. And all to post the best and fastest times. In fact it kind of sounds like Ninja Warrior, but with futuristic army dudes. And a distinct lack of excitable Japanese narration.

Announced via the latest Call of Duty Livestream, Treyarch’s Mark Lamia and Dan Bunting explain the reasoning behind this new mode and even give us a taste of what to expect.

(Note: the Free Run stuff begins at about the 11:00 minute mark with the demo beginning at around the 16:00 minute mark.)

Treyarch and Activision have released a new teaser trailer highlighting what the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta is going to offer PS4 users first and foremost, now that it appears Activision is out of Microsoft's pocket.

Not that far out, mind, because PS4 users only get a five-day headstart with their access kicking off on August 19, while Xbox One and PC players can jump in from August 26.

A note from Treyarch on the event(s):
Hello!

We hope that you’re getting pumped for the Beta, because we certainly are – we can’t wait to jump online with you and start playing some Black Ops 3.

While the Beta represents a fraction of what will be available in the final game, your feedback will help fine-tune the game and make for a better, smoother Day 1 for everyone, so thank you!

No doubt, you just caught the trailer for the Beta. If you didn’t, you can catch it here. In it, you probably saw a few things that you haven’t seen before. We figured that now would be a good time to start sharing exactly what’s in store next week (Aug. 19) for PS4 owners that pre-ordered the game (as well as what Xbox One and PC fans can expect on August 26 when the Beta goes live for them).

Let’s get to it…
The actual list is pretty extensive, so click here for an official breakdown from the team.

Creator of the original Zombies Mode for Call of Duty, Treyarch, has lifted the lid on its next instalment, which features voices and likenesses from the likes of Ron Perlman and Heather Graham. Watch the new trailer.

The new "Shadows of Evil Zombies" reveal trailer for Call of Duty Black Ops III brings with it all the tongue-in-cheek adult fun and humour we've come to expect from Treyarch and features the two actors mentioned in our headline, along with Jeff Goldblum and Neal McDonough.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Zombies – Shadows of Evil drops players into a recognizable yet terrifyingly unfamiliar world, as they uncover the secrets and challenges laid out for them by a shadowy figure, who holds their fate in his hands. Set in a 1940s film-noir era, Shadows of Evil introduces four unwitting characters – The Magician, The Femme-Fatale, The Cop and The Boxer – into an unravelling experience masterminded by the mysterious Shadow Man. Featuring voices and likenesses, the characters are played by Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day), Heather Graham (The Hangover 1-3, Californication), Neil McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger, Band of Brothers), Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy) and Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager, Stargate SG-1).

As promised, here is our first-look feature detailing a slice of what Treyarch showed us out at their Santa Monica base just a week ago.

To a room of *almost* boos, we’re told the signature Treyarch MP dive is gone, but it’s now been replaced with a slide that can also become a powerslide. On top of that, mantling has been given a boost and while we’re at it, you can also now properly wall-run. Running the wrong way on a wall? You can actually change direction mid-run and go back the opposite way. Moreover, jump now comes with a jet-boost dealie. It’s very much like the one in Evolve complete with cooldown, but here it serves the player with speed. And coming full circle, you can now use water.
That's just a portion of the main feature, which details the game's new movement system for multiplayer as well as the addition of "specialists" characters, alongside what we know about single-player and Zombies.

Treyarch and Activision have lifted the veil on the next instalment in the Black Ops series today, with a reveal trailer that shows off a very busy future filled with fighting robots, classic explosions and swimming in multiplayer.

We have a full week of preview coverage coming starting today as well, which includes multiplayer hands-on already, as well as chats with the top brass at Treyarch and much more. It's also worth noting that while in the past the series has always been on Xbox first, we actually played MP on PS4 and there was a big emphasis on a dedicated team working to get as much out of the PC build as possible.

Here's hoping that, at the very least, means dedicated servers.

Watch the trailer embedded below.
