Treyarch and Activision are finishing up their upcoming shooter, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The video game developer and publisher plans to unveil developments and an extensive range of the game's aspects to eager fans.
Activision likes to stir things up in the gaming industry, revealing game details bit by bit, such as the Tracklist Tuesdays for Guitar Hero Live and the recent Black Ops Fridays, where designer Dan Bunting and design director David Vonderhaar will explain developments about Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
The latest stream uploaded to Call of Duty's official channel disclosed a new map and the ninth confirmed Specialist.
The new Redwood map is inspired by the Redwood Forest found in northern California. It features a few military structures and plenty of platforms up on the tall trees, which gamers can take advantage of for intense maneuvering using double jumps and wall runs.
The revealed Specialist is named Firebreak, and the character will come with a fear-inducing flamethrower called The Purifier, which seems to be a pretty straightforward moniker. Firebreak will excel in close-range combat, and the Specialist's potential to clear a room quickly is particularly noteworthy, not to mention that his ability Heatwave allows him to incapacitate opposing forces.
Vonderhaar says that the shooter was updated based on user feedback that beta testers provided. For instance, Nomad's ability Rejack will count as a kill.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will also include a single-player campaign set in 2065, and it depicts how technological advancements have affected humanity, turning soldiers into nothing more but weapons. Also, the game developer will offer a cooperative campaign that takes place in 1940 called Shadows of Evil—the game's first zombie map—featuring an impressive cast of characters.
On Nov. 6, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be available on Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC and other older consoles, but the single-player campaign will only be available on recent platforms.
Hard-core Call of Duty fans can't afford to miss out on any updates every Friday if they want to stay ahead in the competitive scene.
