Important Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 details surfaced this week that reveal exciting information for fans of the series, including new teasers, story details and more. E3 is already in the rearview mirror as the focus shifts to Comic-Con and Treyarch teases important information about the new Call of Duty game.
If you are just catching up, the 2015 Call of Duty release is a return to Black Ops with a new story and upgraded multiplayer that includes special new abilities and features that super charge the experience with upgraded soldiers at your disposal.
The Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 release date arrives on November 6th, but you don’t need to wait until then to play the game. Treyarch and Activision plan to offer a Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta in August so gamers can test the new multiplayer mode. The developer will use this to tweak gameplay and test servers to prepare for the launch.
Here are the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 details that gamers need to know as we head into the end of June.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Zombies Reveal
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Zombies details are set to arrive at the San Diego Comic Con in early July. Treyarch teased this information and now the official Comic-Con website includes information about a Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Zombies trailer and memorabilia.
“Call of Duty invades Comic-Con for the reveal of Black Ops III’s highly anticipated new Zombies Mode. Be on-hand as Zombies director Jason Blundell unveils Treyarch’s new mind-bending tale of the undead. Don’t miss the onstage reveal of the star-studded cast. Attendees will also get an exclusive first look at the Zombies reveal trailer and receive limited edition Zombies memorabilia only available at Comic-Con.”
Fans who are at the event can take home special Black Ops 3 Zombies gear and will see the trailer before it goes live online. The rest of us can expect to see the new Call of Duty Zombies trailer soon after the July 9th reveal.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Collector’s Editions
The special editions of games are a huge topic lately with the hard to find Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition and the cancelled Batman Arkham Knight Batmobile edition. At the San Diego Comic Con on July 9th we will get our first look at the new Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 collector’s edition and what it includes.
“…catch additional Black Ops III news as it breaks live, including the official announcement of the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Collector’s Editions.”
From the Comic-Con website we learn that there may be multiple editions, but it isn’t clear if that means different levels or just versions for each of the latest consoles.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Story Details
We learned that Marshawn Lynch is playing a role in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 as a bad guy, but Treyarch told fans that he is not the main villain in the game. We also learn that Raul Menendez is not returning to the Black Ops 3 storyline.
“So, a few things…
Marshawn Lynch makes a special appearance in the game…he is not “the villain” (i.e. Menendez).
The fictional world of Black Ops 3 carries through from the drone attacks of 2025. For the purpose of the new game, Menendez doesn’t play a part (it would’ve been difficult to do given the multiple endings of BO2).”
We don’t know much more than this just yet, but perhaps we’ll see new details at Comic-Con or Gamescom.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Multiplayer Gameplay
Charlie Intel delivers several great Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 gameplay videos that show us what the new multiplayer mode looks like with the new jumping abilities and weapons. Petey from Charlie Intel confirms this is not as supercharged as a the exosuit in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, with a bigger focus on gun-on-gun gameplay.
This is definitely the best 12 minutes of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer gameplay footage out of E3 2015, and it will have to be enough to hold you over until the Black Ops 3 beta in August.
Call of Duty: Black Ops & Black Ops 2 for Xbox One
The Xbox One will offer backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games this fall, and gamers clearly want to play Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on Xbox One.
Microsoft is letting users vote on, “which Xbox 360 games you’re most excited to play on Xbox One.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops are in the top six games requested with a combined 92,000 votes from fans who want to play these favorites on the Xbox One later this year.
Microsoft will deliver the capability to play Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One later this year, but not every game will work. Microsoft says, “we’re working hard to make as many of your favorite Xbox 360 titles playable on Xbox One.”
