Call of Duty Black Ops 3 News: Last Gen Details, New Screenshots, Free Original Title, And Everything Else You Need To Know

By on

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 will release three days from now and a lot of new information has been announced for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. Things aren?t looking so well for both last gen versions of the game as not only will it have a lower framerate, the graphics also look horrendous. Here are the latest Call of Duty Black Ops 3 news for the last gen versions of the game:

Horrid Graphics

Phenomenal graphics do not necessarily lead to an enjoyable gaming experience, but these recently released COD BLOPS 3 screenshots will surely detract you from your gaming experience. A PS3 gameplay footage was leaked recently on YouTube showing tons of low-polygons, horrid textures, and blurry backgrounds, Crave Online reported. You can see the rest of the terrible looking screens of the game on Imgur.

Free Original Title

We?re not sure if you?ll still consider purchasing the game on the PS3 and Xbox 360 after seeing those screenshots above, but if you decide to push through, your copy of COD BLOPS 3 will come with a free digital copy of the original Black Ops game, Gamingbolt reported. Here is Activision?s announcement:

?The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 features Multiplayer and Zombies gameplay only, but will not include a co-op or single-player campaign game mode. This PS3 and Xbox 360 version also includes a bonus digital full game download for the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, the game that started the series.?

No Campaign Explained

The developers have now explained why the last gen versions of COD BLOPS 3 will have no single player missions. Campaign director Jason Blundell told the Official Xbox Magazine (via GamesRadar) that the story mode was omitted for the PS3 and Xbox 360 because players will not fully experience the way they crafted the campaign. Blundell explained that even the simple features can’t be done because of the limitations of last gen consoles.

?So it?s a co-op game. Let?s imagine I have my customized weapon and I?ve made it with a stock and all this extended mag and so forth. For you as a co-op player to see what weapon I have, you have to have loaded in the memory- in resident memory- every single weapon customization. Current-gen memory just can?t do that. You?d have to have everything loaded otherwise you just can?t see what I?m carrying.?

Other Last Gen Details

What other lack of features and downgrades can you expect for the last gen versions? The Weapon Paint Shop, CODCasting Theatre, and other latest eSports tools are unavailable for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Both the pre-order bonus Nuke Town Map and the Season Pass is only available on current gen consoles. The last gen versions will scale between 30 to 60 frames per second compared to the current gen versions which maintains a steady 60fps, Activision announced.

The highly anticipated Call of Duty Black Ops 3 will be released on November 6, 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
