We’d reconsider that Xbox 360 Black Ops 3 pre-order
So you decided to finally get ahead of the game for once and pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for the Xbox 360 the moment you heard that it was coming, despite Activision talking up just how much the game relies on current-generation consoles like the Xbox One. There’s good news and bad news for you. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is still coming to the Xbox 360 — Activision didn’t pull a Warner Brothers. Unfortunately, it’s coming without some pretty key features, like a campaign.
Activision announced in a blog post today that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for Xbox 360 won’t arrive with a campaign experience at all. The publisher blames the issue on the co-operative story experience being more than what the Xbox 360 — and the PlayStation 3 can handle. To compensate for that, the game will cost users $49.99, not that the $59.99 it was expected to. Xbox 360 users won’t be able to paint their weapons or take advantage of the game’s eSports options either.
The publisher says that it’d rather not include the campaign than release something that it knew wouldn’t meet anyone standards, which definitely makes sense. The problem for them is going to be that new low price. Effectively, they’re saying the campaign wasn’t worth anymore than $10 anyway. Players will still get access to the Zombies and Multiplayer modes.
All versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 arrive on November 6th.
