New details have emerged about Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 via the source code of the official Call of Duty website. We now know that Zombies are back which isn’t a huge surprise, but it will certainly please the fans. The site also says that Black Ops 3 will take place in a dark and twisted future where military robotics are the core of warfare. Treyarch also mentioned that “Black Ops 3 is the first title for next-gen hardware in the critically acclaimed Black Ops series.”
- Zombies mode is coming back. This isn’t a huge surprise, considering both previous Black Ops games included the undead. Still, it’s an excellent additional mode that gives players something to do aside from multiplayer.
- Black Ops 3 takes place in a “dark, twisted” future where the lines between humanity and our technology are blurred. Military robotics are the core of warfare.
“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 soldier 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. With three unique game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer and Zombies, providing fans with the deepest and most ambitious Call of Duty ever.”
We know that Call of Duty: Black Op 3 is coming thanks to a teaser trailer which was released yesterday. What we don’t know is whether it will come to Wii U. Interestingly a NeoGAF member has discovered that you can now link your Call of Duty account to your Nintendo Network ID on the Call of Duty website. It’s a new addition and could possibly mean that Treyarch will bring the game across to Wii U. However, we all know that the last Call of Duty game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare skipped the platform. Let’s hope that’s not the case this year.
We all knew it was coming and now it seems pretty much official that the next Call of Duty title will be Black Ops 3. Activision has just released the teaser video which you can watch above that’s filled with cryptic phrases. At the end of the trailer it says that the worldwide reveal will be showcased on April 26th. Guess we will get our first look at the in-game footage then.
The multiplayer maps that are found within Black Ops 2 have been updated with new Snapchat QR codes that you can scan with your phone. If you come across one of the Snapchat QR codes be sure to scan it with your phone, if you do so you’ll be greeted with the following message “listen only to the sound of my voice…”. Sounds like a marketing campaign for the unannounced Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
We all know just how popular the Call of Duty series has been. Analysts have said that sales have recently been on the decline, but there’s still no denying it’s an incredibly popular series worldwide. Activision has announced that the Call of Duty franchise has sold over 175 million units which equates to around one copy sold every two seconds. You really can’t argue with that.
Everyone’s favourite Call of Duty developer Treyarch have apparently teased on Twitter that they are hard at work on the third Call of Duty: Black Ops video game. The team is said to have posted the tweet, that you can see above, and then apparently deleted it. It would make sense for them to be working on Black Ops as it’s their franchise. Let’s hope that if it’s legitimate then this one comes to the Wii U as Advanced Warfare skipped the platform last year.
We’ve already heard from Activison that the recently released Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare won’t be heading to the Wii U. However, the game has randomly popped up on US retailer Target’s database. This has led some to believe that the game will be announced for Wii U, which is extremely unlikely as both development teams have said that there won’t be a Wii U version this year. Still, some hope remains.
