News – Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s campaign missions can be played in any order
You know how you normally unlock new missions in the campaign of a Call of Duty game? Well, this is a thing of the past in the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
This actually means that you can play the final mission from the outset. Developer Treyarch have taken away the typical unlocking of missions in order to give players more freedom in regard to how they consume the content of the game.
“The unlocking level system is an archaic mentality we’ve had since we did bedroom development back in the day – you do this, then go on to the next one. Consumers and game players in general are far more mature these days. There are so many things vying for our interests today. It’s about, how do they want to consume it? Maybe they put it down on level two, and then they’re in work the next day, and some guy says, ‘dude, you’ve got to check out level four!’ And he’s like, ‘okay, I’ll have a quick look.’ That’s totally fine. I think it’s their choice,” said Jason Blundell, the director of the campaign and the Zombies mode for the game when speaking to Eurogamer.
The game is releasing on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on November 6th, although it will only be the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions that will have the campaign, as, in a rather controversial decision, Activision has dropped the campaign for previous generation versions of the game.
