Black Ops 3 launch trailer is a recap and tease - what's up with that weird tree?

The Call of Duty: Black Ops games have always held an element of conspiracy and mystery - that's part of why they'recalled Black Ops. A previous trailer for Black Ops 3 gave us plenty to think about, what with its apparent return to World War II and Matrix-like mind-hacking, but the launch trailer has a few strange moments of its own. Take a look:

The world-threatening catastrophe is pretty par for the course when it comes to Call of Duty, but trees sprouting from a white plane of nothingness is, as far as I'm aware, new. Yup, just checked the boxes of previous CoD games. No magic trees.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will take root on November 6.
