In the next 50 years, technological advancements will lead us into a world where only those who risk going too far, will find out how far we can actually go.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is a dark, gritty future where a new breed of Black Ops soldier emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the cutting-edge military robotics that define the future of combat.
Black Ops 3 features a “momentum-based chained-movement system” which will allow players to traverse the map in continuous motion using thrust jumps, slides, and mantling abilities, all while remaining in control of your weapon at all times.
The game will feature wall running and jet packs to help players move through the air. Use of these abilities is optional. Black Ops 3 includes a new specialist character system in multiplayer, which includes nine specialists, each with two abilities. Abilities range from a robot arm transforming into a gun to being able to see through walls.
Multiplayer maps are “built from the ground up” to promote both traditional movement and advanced maneuvers.
The new Specialist character system will give players the opportunity to “rank up and master each specific character’s battle-hardened capabilities and weapons,” promising three different progression paths, including the traditional XP and Weapon XP systems.
Black Ops will include a campaign that can be played cooperatively with up to four players online is also available. The mode is “designed for co-op and replayability” with cinematic gameplay and open-area arena-style environments. Characters will also be completely customizable. Black Ops 3’s new Zombies will feature an “all-new narrative” with a full XP-based progression system.
