    Black Ops III - New Player Control

    Sign in to follow this  

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is set to stand apart from other titles in the COD due to the new player control system on new-gen Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

    That's according to directors Dan Bunting and Jason Blundell, who recently outlined some of the changes being introduced in BO3.

    Player's will have the renewed focus of staying peeled for combat situations, while map movement is another aspect of the game Treyarch have sought to revise.

    And while Black Ops will continue to offer some of the classic level structure that has become a hallmark of the brand, set-piece fire-fight situations, it will also push to bring challenges to how the enemy movement and the layout work together.

    "We still push people into choke points and constrain heights, but we wanted to give players an extended mastery curve, to expand the upper limits of how they learn movement through the map,” Bunting reveals in the latest issue of Edge magazine.

    “We automate a lot of things. We let players concentrate on the combat; everything else is fluid – it sublimates to a primal part of your brain."

    Campaign director Jason Blundell added: "With the greatest reverence and respect for [Call of Duty], sometimes the tactic is just left trigger, right trigger, dead.

    “With some of our new AI archetypes, that won’t be viable. We’ve also opened up the spaces, so you need much better situational awareness.” 

    We already know that core game mechanics have need to be overhauled to make way for four-player co-op and a move away from the traditional enemies seen in COD.

    And it looks to be the ideal time to evolve the franchise away from what fans will most likely expect from the traditional Call of Duty experience, what with the extra power supplied in the Xbox One and PS4.

    Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia recently explained some of the finer points of centering the campaign on a co-op experience, revealing that an emergent AI was needed to supply the same trademark battle situations, along with the altered interplaying game-style fixed for the campaign.

    "For us it was critical because we soon as we decided to make a co-op game, but yet we needed to make it feel like a Call of Duty game.." Lamia explained.

    "It has to actually adapt and respond and there has to be emergent AI in those situations."

    • Tekken 7 recently kicked off its third season with Zafina, and now the third and fourth fighters being added have been revealed. One's returning to the series after some time away, but the other is brand new. Returning to the world of Tekken is Ganryu, last seen in Tekken 6. He remains a bit of a goofy character, and his open-palm hits look pretty painful. He's Tekken's equivalent of E. Honda in the Street Fighter series, and it looks like he's a streamer now. Here's his character trailer. The next all-new fighter for Tekken 7 is Fahkumram, a Muay Thai champion. His intimidating size and strange look is shown off in the trailer below, along with his punishing attacks. We wonder what the story is with those scars and throbbing veins. He's the fourth and final character to be added this season. Meanwhile, Leroy Smith--the second character added in season 3--got a release date. He's coming December 10, and you can check out his moves (and his kickass theme song) in the video below. Ganryu is due before the close of winter (meaning February 2020), and Fahkumram will arrive at a later date. The season pass will also give you access to frame data display and add an additional stage, both at a later date. View the full article
    • The Epic Games Store has pulled a lot of exclusives with its promise of advances to developers and publishers, and its more generous revenue split compared to Steam, and now it's taking another step to make things better for the companies releasing games on it. A change in the Epic Games Store policy means that developers are now free to use whatever payment and purchase systems they want within their games. As reported by Gamasutra, until this change games on the store had to use an Epic-approved payment system for in-game purchases. "We support developers’ right to choose among the best stores, in-app payment processors, online services, and engines," Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney told them. This will mean that developers will potentially be able to retain a larger share of the revenue generated from in-game sales, whether those be microtransactions or the purchase of more substantial downloadable content. From a consumer point of view--and, indeed, for a lot of developers--this change probably will not mean much, but there's now potential for developers to make more money from their in-game sales. The latest major Epic Games Store exclusive is Phoenix Point, a spiritual successor to XCom. View the full article
