With the reveal in just a few hours time, we get our first taste of what we can expect to see from the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 trailer.
What appeared to be an accidental push for an early preview of Black Ops 3, Mashable and Gameplanet have posted extensive amount of details about the game, including the first hi-res screenshots, which you can view below:
According to the preview, Black Ops 3 is set to release only on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This will be the first Call of Duty game to release this generation that isn’t available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, if true.
New gameplay features include a class system inspired by Bungie’s sci-fi shooter, Destiny. Character “Specialists” each have two unique abilities – a special weapon and move or perk – yielding 18 different choices. Abilities range from a robot arm that can turn into a gatling gun to the power to see through walls.
The movement system is described as the most fluid yet with the ability to wall-run, perform jetpack-assisted jumps and power slide. Though your aim might suffer, you can shoot while performing these moves. Sprint is unlimited, but advanced movements are governed by a meter that depletes upon use and refills every couple of seconds. Dolphin diving will not be present.
The Gunsmith customization tool will let players equip weapons with up to five attachments, each with their own cosmetic variant. The new Paintshop feature will let players add up to 64 layers of weapon camo patterns to a gun to customize its look. Scorestreaks and Pick 10 return, alongside the new Specialist levelling system.
During press sessions, six vs. six matches were played on modes like Kill Confirmed, Domination, Team Deathmatch. Three maps were demoed – Stronghold, an icy Swiss map; Combine, a small and tight facility: and Hunted, a jungle map.
Black Ops 3 multiplayer will be playable at E3 as well as during a closed beta prior to launch, which can be accessed via pre-order.
Campaign missions are designed to be tackled co-operatively, with up to three other players in bigger and more complex level layouts against smarter enemy AI. Characters can be completely customized, including gender.
A social system will blanket all three modes – multiplayer, co-op, and zombies – so friends can transition between each easilly. eSports will once again be supported.
