There is a lot to look forward to with “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3,” and developer Treyarch has teased a new footage that features a combat movement tutorial in its upcoming title. The new video shows that, despite the similarity in the treatment of futuristic gadgets and exoskeletons as “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,” this year’s title does change the game in unique ways.
As seen in the video below, the new beta will allow players to experience a tighter, more precise way of fighting. Given that the developer’s motto of a “guns up” philosophy for the game, “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3” will deliver action after action. These includes wall runs, direction changes while in mid-air and even reverse direction actions while playing the beta. Controller movement and shooting, while swimming, is also possible and realistic, especially since players will need to come up and get some air.
Since the gameplay follows a chained system, this means that players can get into the battle in different ways. This is a big change from “Advanced Warfare,” since last year’s title was limited in terms of movement and moment, Games Radar reported.
Publisher Activision and Treyarch have also taken a few steps to acquaint fans with the beta set to happen on Aug. 19. As announced before, PS4 players will have the first run of the beta, but with just days before its actual release, Activision has provided a quick set of FAQs via the official Activision Blog.
Activision has promised that the “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3” beta will be brimming with content, though it is far from being a complete game. The beta download file is at an estimated 15GB size. Sadly, those who are looking forward to possible zombie mode experience will have to wait past the beta as this period will be focused on multiplayer in the meantime.
Also, as mentioned before, any progress made during the beta will not be carried over in the final game. Treyarch and Activision are looking at the beta as a way to balance and fix the game towards launch. In fact, the developer is looking forward to the feedback that players will share, and a survey will be posted via the official “Call of Duty” website once the beta starts.
For technical information, players will need the beta access code to get in. This can be obtained in a number of ways, including preordering the game for any of its target platforms via retailers or the platforms’ respective online stores. However, to actually participate in the beta, players will need the PS4, Xbox One or PC version. The only difference between the retailer versus direct PS Store, Xbox Live or Steam preorders is that the former will require a beta code to receive a beta token.
