Activision and Treyarch has released a new video demonstrating that there is a new way to interact with the competitive multiplayer aspect of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The video comes ahead of the of the beta, which will give gamers a way to test out the multiplayer in the game before it goes live.
MP1st posted up the video giving gamers a look at the new specialist abilities that are detailed in the minute long video. Check it out below.
So basically, you can choose a specialist and decide whether you want a special ability or a special weapon to bring with you into battle. You can only have one.
By pressing L1 and R1 at the same time you can activate the special, or on the Xbox controllers that would be the left and right bumpers. As demonstrated in the video above, the ability granted the user a powerful mini-gun that could rip and shred through the opposition for a limited time.
According to a FAQ that Mp1st posted up, the beta is strictly centered around the competitive multiplayer aspect. There are no campaign and no zombie modes present in the beta. Additionally, the beta clocks in at 15GB and will give gamers a look at the pace, gameplay and some of the weapons that will be at the disposal of players in the upcoming Call of Duty title.
The beta, of course, is designed to allow gamers to offer feedback and support for their experience with the beta.
So far Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 hasn't really been covering the news beat like previous entries. This newest game kind of lacks a headlining star like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, where Kevin Spacey received top billing and the marketing was centered around him being a big, bad villain in the game.
The only thing we know for sure that has a lot of people excited about Black Ops 3 is that there will be plenty of zombies and zombie DLC.
The game is still a first-person shooter like all the previous entries but Treyarch has taken to adding in some brand new content to the game unlike any Call of Duty in the past, such as the four-player cooperative campaign, which is a first for the series.
Additionally, Black Ops 3 will sport all new skills and abilities across different skill trees. Yes, Call of Duty is embracing the skill tree and enabling players to outfit their character with a number of different cybernetic enhancements. While the game may not be getting quite as much press as Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare the game is at least rocking quite a few noteworthy additions to the series compared to some of the other previous entries.
