    New Black Ops 3 Info: Campaign, Multiplayer, Zombies, Beta

    Over the course of the day we saw a lot of Black Ops 3 info come out due to several released images from Gamestop and their Black Ops 3 marketing material. We've compiled everything we learned today for your reading and viewing pleasure down below.

    CAMPAIGN:

    A Call of Duty Campaign unlike anything before it.

    Co-Op Campaign
    Treyarch elevates the Call of Duty social gaming experience by delivering a campaign with the ability to play cooperatively with up to four players online, using same battle-tested network infrastructure and social systems that support the world-class Multiplayer and Zombies game modes.

    Cinematic Arena-Style Play
    Designed for co-op and re-playability, players encounter all the epic cinematic gameplay moments Call of Duty is known for delivering as well as new open area arena-style gameplay elements designed to allow players to approach the game with a different strategy each time the play.

    Character Progression
    And now, every player is completely customizable: from weapons and loadouts, to abilities and outfits, all with full progression systems and a personalized armory to show accomplishments, providing a constantly-evolving campaign experience.

    MULTIPLAYER:

    Prepare for a leveled-up multiplayer
    New movement system
    With Black Ops III, Treyarch premieres a new momentum-based chained-movement system, allowing players to fluidly move through the environment with finesse, using controlled thrust jumps, slides, and mantling abilities in a multitude of combinations, all while maintaining complete control over your weapon at all times.

    Tailored Map Design
    Maps are designed from the ground-up for the new movement system, allowing players to be successful with traditional movement, as well as advanced tactics and maneuvers.

    Specialist Characters
    Black Ops III multiplayer also introduces the new Specialist character system, which allows players to rank up and master each specific character’s battle-hardened capabilities and weapons. With this addition to Traditional and Weapons XP progressions systems, Black Ops III multiplayer gives players three different ways to rank up.

    ZOMBIES:

    Fight the Undead in an all-new horror story
    All-new Narrative
    No Treyarch title would be complete without its signature Zombies offering – a full-game experience with its own distinct storyline right out of the box.

    XP Progression System
    Black Ops III Zombies is the most immersive and ambitious Call of Duty Zombies to date, with a full XP-based progression system for players that adds depth and re-playability to engaging gameplay Zombies fans have come to expect.

    Based upon another piece of Black Ops 3 marketing material in the form of a poster, we've learned that the game will be released on November 6th of this year and that there will be a beta for the game. Beta access is awarded to those who preorder the game.

    • To celebrate the launch of the Mass Effect Legendary Edition, a large portion of the original trilogy cast reunited for a special panel including both voices for Commander Shepard, Joker's Seth Green, and so many more. When Mark Meer, the voice behind Male Shepard, put out a call to fans to edit the Citadel DLC in Mass Effect 3 to have both Sheps battle it out, one fan took to the challenge in a pretty epic way. Just be warned, the video has spoilers for one of the greatest DLCs in gaming history, so if you haven't played it yet, you might want to turn away now.  Seriously, last chance. Spoilers for the Mass Effect 3 Citadel DLC ahead.  Spoiler warning given. Fandom mode activated. Let's do this. In the Mass Effect 3 Citadel DLC, there are a few parts. An entirely new area of the Citadel is open, filled with bars, casinos, arcades, and a swanky sushi joint. It all goes to hell, as things often do with Shepard, when a band of mercs attack them when they meet up with Joker at the fanciest restaurant on the Citadel. The plot thickens when it is found that the true enemy is ... well, Shepard. Turns out, Cerberus built a backup clone in case Shep needed any "spare parts," and that clone has some issues with being second best. Before the best party ever to hit space arrives, Shepard and their crew must fight to take the Normandy back and prove that the galaxy is only big enough for one of them. On fan, YouTuber RangerDelk, took Meer up on his challenge and edited the DLC in a way that MaleShep and FemShep square off, giving us the crossover that has only been available via mods and less than SFW fan fiction. The result? Pure epicness:  Click here to watch embedded media This from the original trilogy, not the remaster, but is really awesome to see the pair battle it out. It turns out that this user created a video previously where FemShep was the clone, but  Meer requested another version where he was the backup organ donor instead, giving Jennifer Hale's take on the character time to shine.  The Mass Effect Legendary Edition is out now and has been met with pretty stellar reviews, including our own right here. For the those wanting a little more remaster goodness in their life, be sure to check out our Exclusives hub below to see more from our time chatting with BioWare to dive deep into what the Legendary Edition has to offer. You can check that out here in between missions that ... you know, save the galaxy? No pressure.  View the full article
    • Mass Effect 3 had no shortage of romantic partners that you could count, and after a brief fling on the Normandy, your Shepard would have a reminder of their one true love in the form of an artistic framed picture in their sleeping quarters. For fans of the character Tali, this picture was an extra special memento as it showed the Quarian without her trademark mask on. In Mass Effect Legendary Edition, that picture is still there but Tali's face from the 2012 game has been swapped out for an image that's more in line with her character and race. Possible spoilers below The original...and not the best.The new image features Tali's face now only partially uncovered, and her skin tone has lost the purple hue of the original photo for a more greyish tone. Here's the new picture, from "Maxgoods" on Reddit: Lookin' less stock photo!Back in 2012. Tali's original unmasked appearance resulted in a small controversy. Developer BioWare had used a stock image by photographer Matthew Leete, which was then modified to appear more alien. Some fans at the time pointed out inconsistencies in the image and Tali, such as several of the model's fingers clearly having been photoshopped off, and the small fact that without her protective suit Tali should have been dead within minutes after the glamorous portrait shot was taken. For newcomers to Mass Effect, Quarians have to live their entire lives while dressed in a protective enviro-suit as their weak immune systems cannot handle germs and microbes outside of sterile environments. If you're looking to earn this new photo of Tali, you'll need to play through both of her character arcs in Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 to successfully romance her. Unfortunately, only male Shepard can date her. Mass Effect Legendary Edition is currently doing very well since its release last week, having reached a concurrent player figure on Valve's PC storefront that has broken new franchise records. This won't be the last that fans see of Mass Effect either, as BioWare is also working on a new game in the series which still in an early stage of development.
