Black Ops 3 launched on PC with some fairly serious issues, chief among them the fact it ran like stuttering garbage on i5 processors. A week later, is it safe to actually try and play the game if you’d previously been having problems? Probably.
There are too many Call of Duty games. Let me clarify that statement: There are too many Call of Duty games in Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
Lately I’ve been having nightmares about robots.
Call of Duty campaigns are a guilty pleasure of mine, so I was excited last week to fire up Black Ops 3 on PC. Ten minutes later, I’d shut it down, and a sad sense of déjà vu was washing over me.
Because official screenshots wouldn’t dare get us this close to Jeff Goldblum’s majestic virtuosity, there is Theater mode.
Continuing the proud tradition established in the original Black Ops, Black Ops III has a hidden arcade mini-game, only it’s not really all that mini. If you’d rather find it yourself, close your eyes and ears. And maybe don’t read on.
There are certain things I’ve come to expect from a single player Call of Duty experience—bombastic set pieces, an in-your-face message, some sort of betrayal and a slow motion enemy take down. Black Ops III delivers three out of four, plus a whole lot more.
Black Ops 3 won’t have a campaign mode on Xbox 360 and PS3, and the game’s frame rate will fluctuate between 30 and 60 frames-per-second. But here’s why they’re making a version for aging hardware: Activision’s revealed there are still 12 million monthly active users for the three-year-old Black Ops II. Damn.
Not only does Call of Duty : Black Ops III have all of its campaign content unlocked from the start, it has content that looks as if it comes from other games unlocked from the start as well. Check out the new multiplayer parkour-flavored “Free Run” mode.
The single player portion of Treyarch’s next Call of Duty game has proven too much for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the studio announced today.
Cancel your plans to replay the first two Call of Duty: Black Ops games to catch up on the storyline—Treyarch’s handy timeline video has you covered.
Black Ops 2 did a rather strange thing with its campaign that no other Call of Duty has, and it’s a twist that made it one of my favorite games from the last generation just for the story (that Treyarch multiplayer isn’t the only reason I have affection for Blops). Black Ops 2 has a branching plot but not in the…
As I noted this morning, Call of Duty is one of those rare things I like. I like the campaigns because the stories are usually decently told and efficiently delivered—I can play through each new one in a couple sessions, and playing them again never feels like a daunting proposition. And I like the multiplayer because…
Call of Duty’s popular zombies mode returns in Black Ops III, and it’s surprisingly ambitious. It’s called Shadows of Evil, and not only has a full story, but it’s set in the 1940s and stars Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, Ron Perlman, and Robert Picardo. What?!
It’s official: the next Call of Duty is out on November 6. Watch the debut trailer—set to the dulcet sounds of The Rolling Stones—right here:
You might not be playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 anymore, but plenty of people still are, and they’ve noticed something really weird. Poster art has been subtly changed, and it appears to be linked to a reveal for the next Call of Duty.
Those who have Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 might want to jump in at some point this weekend to take advantage of the double XP boost in online matches, and the free trial of the game's Uprising DLC, which offers four maps, plus the "Mob of the Dead" mode.
If Far Cry 3 can have its insane Blood Dragon DLC, then Call of Duty: Black Ops II can get Mob of the Dead, one piece of the new Uprising downloadable expansion to Activision's blockbuster first-person shooter.
If those North Korean propaganda games weren't odd (and unsettling) enough, the country's state media is incorporating Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and "We Are the World" to show the U.S. under attack. Yeah.
