One of the biggest questions at the moment regarding Black Ops 3 is will the game be coming to both current gen and last gen consoles…..
For those that prefer a little light reading:
Now while there is no official confirmation on this I can say with all confidence that it most certainly will be.
We were advised last year that the development companies would be making both versions for at least two years, this being the second of those two years.
There is such a large fan base for Call of Duty on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, that to ignore such a huge portion of the market would just be silly.
We have seen development companies outsource to other studios before so they can port over the game to the old gen consoles. I don’t see any reason why Black Ops 3 would be any different.
So for those on your still gaming on the last gen, don’t stress, I am very confident that you will be included in this game.
I don’t think this will go on for much longer though, maybe next year at the most, but after that they won’t be catering to both generations anymore. So you may want to think about finally upgrading.
The other burning question is will the game be futuristic and will there be exos?
Well we know that the game will be futuristic to a degree as Treyarch have actually already confirmed that.
In the official description that Treyarch have released for the game they say that:
“Call of Duty®: Black Ops 3 is the first title for next-gen hardware in the critically acclaimed Black Ops series. Developed by Treyarch, the award-winning creator of the two most played games in Call of Duty® history. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 deploys players into a dark, twisted future where a new breed of Black Ops soldiers emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the technology we created to stay ahead, in a world where cutting-edge military robotics define warfare.”
So yes, the game will be futuristic. Just how far they are taking that theme we won’t know for another two weeks until the reveal on April 26th.
As for exo skeletons, well again, there is no official confirmation however from what I have been told and from what we can take away from the only image we have of the game so far, it certainly looks like exos will not be included. Instead it looks like we are in for some sort of cyber-kinetic suit.
So hopefully that has put so of your minds at ease. Let me know how you feel about this and if Black Ops 3 will be a day 1 purchase for you.
