Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is back and its set to arrive on November 6th on PC, Xbox One and PS4. The entire campaign will be playable co-cooperatively by up to four players online (or two players locally).
The addition of up to three campaign players meant building bigger combat arenas, better AI and adding social features for showing off medals and achievements.
For the first time in the franchise’s history, the campaign’s protagonist is fully customizable. In addition to upgrading abilities, changing your character’s appearance and tweaking weapons, players can pick the gender of their Call of Duty hero. “It’s not just a female head on a male body. It’s a different set of animations for the entire game,” Lamia says. Character interaction will even differ based on the protagonist’s gender. “We knew we were going to do fully unique male, fully unique female for all scenes and all the customization that goes for both.
So hey, there’s a Black Ops 3 in development, and it all seems a bit Deus Exy. The next Call of Duty is going to take place in a “dark, twisted future” where cyborgs are a thing, and where there are probably a few new killstreaks. Weirdly, even though it’s only just been announced, the game’s minimum specs have already been revealed—here’s how tall your PC will need to be in order to play it.
