Let me put it out there…..last years Call of Duty Advanced Warfare….well, to me…it was shit. As a long time fan of the first person shooter series who has obsessively played every release since Call of Duty 2, I’ve enjoyed watching the game evolve with each new release…that was until exo suits with boost jumping was introduced.
To me, the new game play lost what made the series special…gone are the days going nuts in Nuketown and tinkering with snipers in Stonehaven replaced with trying to target an enemy flying across the sky while they boost from ledge to ledge. I was hoping Treyarch would ditch this move with the release of Black Ops 3…but sadly, it seems as though they’ve taken the mechanics from Advanced Warfare and ‘boosted’ it even more.
check out the new reveal trailer below:
It’s been revealed that Black Ops 3 is set 50 years in the future where soldiers use bio-augmentation and external “cyber rigs” to enhance motion capabilities. Players are able to boost jump in any direction, perform power slides and seamlessly mantle over obstacles – all while maintaining the ability to aim and fire a weapon. –
yay. Treyarch have also included wall running along vertical surfaces that can then be linked with a boost jump and power slide.
Character customization is back for multi-player – which always gets a big tick for me and once again, female soldiers are playable – another tick.
The graphics are looking very slick and while i’m open about not being the biggest fan of the direction the series has taken, i will undoubtedly nab myself a pre-order for the PS4….speaking of which, those who pre-order will gain access to a yet-to-be-dated beta.
Black Ops 3 will be avaialble for PC, XBox One and PS4 users November 6th – sorry PS3 owners.
