    Black Ops III - New Player Control

    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."

    • DICE continues to update Star Wars Battlefront II in big ways. Along with Felucia being added as a large-scale map in September, fans who stuck with this multiplayer experience can look forward to The Rise of Skywalker content in December – likely lining up with the launch of the film on December 20. Much like Lucasfilm keeping the contents of this final installment in Rey's trilogy under lock and key, DICE can't reveal what players can expect, just that it's based on the film. If you jump into the game for the Rise content when it hits, you'll find a host of other things have been added, such as a new four-player co-op mode that pushes your team to complete objectives, both for the Galactic Republic and the Separatist Alliance. These missions unfold on Felucia, Geonosis, Naboo, Kamino, and Kashyyyk – the prequel trilogy planets. Those same five environments will be used again for another new mode called Instant Action, a single-player experience set on large-scale maps. You'll be able to play through these modes using the new Clone Commando. Through October and December, players can also expect another special event (which is currently unknown), and new appearances.

    • @NaBrZHunter Can't you teach the study Zombiology at my university or something?   There is a genuine logic behind the fact that neurons being the messenger between a nervous system and Life Force,  as they work electrical (the ratio potassium/sodium ions generates this). So yeah, when there is electriciy, there is a magnetic field: Our Aura or Chakra, like @Mattzs said. However, I am unsure about what Element 115 really does. If it is inhauled through the lungs, gas exchange happens via the pulmonary alveolus and involves the uptake of 115 in the blood first. Via blood, it could arrive and infect pretty much all body tissues. It can move through the Blood-Brain Barrier and infects the brain as well. However, I don't fully get how it can influence our Aura from there and makes the dead 'radio messengers' or 'electromagnetic marionnettes'.   Concerning the soul, 'Life Force' can only exist if there is a magnetic field, ergo, if there is physical matter. Maxis' soul in Griffin Station and the Afterlife in Mob proves that a soul can exist without matter. I wonder, how does this work? Does the Life Force of a passed away person survive in an physical environment? Is it like some kind of scarf in the electromagnetic field? Matter contains energy, but that energy is maintained or converted after the matter is gone.  I think Life Force can only exist when there is matter, but the soul somehow keeps existing
