If you planned on buying the new Call of Duty game for the story and own a 360 or PS3, you’re gonna be outta luck. Activision has revealed that Black Ops 3’s story mode will be cut for last gen console owners when they buy the game on November 6. They’ve explained this in their blog post:
“The ambitious scope of the 1-4 player coop Campaign design of the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions could not be faithfully recreated on old generation hardware.
Delivering the best possible gameplay experience on all platforms is always our highest priority. With that in mind, Black Ops 3 PS3 and Xbox 360 players can continue to look forward to a new experience of Black Ops 3 multiplayer, including the new momentum-based, chain-movement system, as well as the all-new Specialist class of 9 Black Ops soldiers, which fundamentally change the way players engage in combat.”
Other features exclusive to the current gen versions of the game include the eSports features and the weapon paint shop. As compensation, last gen owners will also be getting a downloadable version of the original Black Ops.
Is this a dealbreaker for you? Does this make you want to buy a current gen system, or are you sticking with your guns for now? Let us know in the comments below.
