Call of Duty Black Ops 3 News: Tweaked Mechanics In Beta, Pre-Load Issues, ?Unstoppable? Music, And More

By on

There are two days to go before Call of Duty Black Ops 3 releases and many are excited to get their hands on the game already. If you were able to participate in the beta of the game earlier this year, take note that some of the mechanics have been tweaked for the retail version of the game. Here are the latest Call Of Duty Black Ops 3 news you should know.

Tweaked Mechanics

Expect a few gameplay mechanics from the COD BLOPS 3 beta to be tweaked in the retail version of the game. Here are some of the changes made according to PS LifeStyle:

Flinch: Getting shot by enemies will cause you to flinch, making it difficult for you to properly target your enemies. Flinching has now been lessened for the retail version.

Kill Cams: Kill cams will now show more details. Equipments, perks, and many others will now be shown to help you counter the enemy who killed you.

Grenades: The concussion stun time of grenades has been lessened by 1 second.

Black Hot Equipment: The hacking mechanic has been adjusted to make it more difficult. Hackers also now appear on the map, making those who are hacking an easy prey.

Rejack: The specialist ability called Rejack was widely abused because of its power. Putting player into Rejack now counts as a kill and using the Rejack ability will restart all killstreak progress.

PC Mods

Mods for COD BLOPS 3 will be released in 2016, Treyarch announced. Here is Teryarch’s plan for the PC mod:

  • You will be able to create Maps & Game Modes and more!
  • We will include Unranked Dedicated Server Files with the tools so you can run servers with modded content anywhere you choose.
  • We will provide an Unranked Server Browser so you can easily find and join servers with modded content.
  • Closed Alpha target date:? March 2016

?Unstoppable? Music

Aside from Avenged Sevenfold lending their music for COD BLOPS 3, what else can you expect to listen to while playing the game? According to Music Times, DJ Afrojack has lent his new song ?Unstoppable? for the game. You can listen to the tune in the video below.

Pre-Load Issues

Those who opted to pre-order COD BLOPS 3 digitally can be spared of failing in long lines and they can play the game as soon as it is released as they can pre-load the game on their consoles. Those who pre-load the game from the Australia or Europe PlayStation Store, however, are encountering issues in pre-loading the game. According to Realty Today, there has yet to be a solution for those who encountered the issue.

Have you encountered this pre-load issue? Call of Duty Black Ops 3 will be released on November 6, 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Pre-ordering the game will net you a bonus Nuketown map for multiplayer and you can see what it looks like in the video below.
