Call of Duty: Black Ops III Revealed

Activision today announced Call of Duty: Black Ops III will arrive November 6th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Developed by Treyarch, Call of Duty: Black Ops III delivers a campaign that can be played as a full single player game or co-op online with up to four players, the deepest multiplayer ever offered in Call of Duty, and a Call of Duty Zombies experience that, for the first time, features its own XP progression system.

Activision and Treyarch also announced for the first time on Call of Duty next gen – a multiplayer Beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Fans who pre-order the game now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PC will get access to the Beta, details for which will be announced at a later date.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops III campaign deploys players into a future world, where bio-technology coupled with cybernetic enhancements has given rise to a new breed of Black Ops soldier. Through Direct Neural Interface (DNI) technology, players are now connected to the intelligence grid and their fellow operatives during battle. In a world more divided than ever, this elite squad consists of men and women who have enhanced their combat capabilities to fight faster, stronger, and smarter.

The multiplayer offering debuts a new momentum-based, chained-movement system that allows players to move fluidly through custom-built environments with finesse, all while maintaining complete control over their weapon at all times. Treyarch also introduces its new Specialist system, which lets players choose and rank up nine elite Black Ops soldiers, each with their own look, personality, voice and battle-hardened weapons and abilities. Multiplayer is rounded out with an all-new weapon customization system that give players more powerful tools than ever to build and personalize that perfect weapon. Additional details about multiplayer will be announced at a later date.

No Treyarch title would be complete without its signature Zombies, rounding out the offering. Call of Duty: Black Ops III delivers a unique Zombies experience, complete with a new XP progression for players.
