You Don’t Need a PS4, Xbox One, or PC to Play Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
While the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One hog the limelight, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are still pretty useful gaming machines for anyone looking for an affordable entry into console gaming. Throw in the fact that they still have a sizeable audience, and companies will still support them. For instance, EA Sports is releasing FIFA 16 on the PS3 and Xbox 360 apart from next-gen consoles and PC. And it isn’t alone.
Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360. While in-house studio, Treyarch, is hard at work on the PC (Windows), PS4, and Xbox One versions of the game, the company has enlisted the talents of Beenox and Mercenary Technology for the military FPS’ last-gen outing.
“Xbox 360 and PS3 players will be able to experience Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s gameplay across campaign, multiplayer and zombies. While the teams are working to deliver the best possible experience for Xbox 360 and PS3, naturally there will be some differences across generations,” a post on Activision’s blog reads. “For instance, the campaign mode on Xbox 360 and PS3 is currently in development with a goal of enabling two-player cooperative play, instead of the four-player cooperative campaign on next-gen.”
Apart from limited cooperative gameplay, the post goes on to explain that there will be other differences between generations due to the technical limitations on the PS3 and Xbox 360 which will be shared in the run up to the game’s November 6 release date. The company also stated that there’s no Wii U version planned.
