Published

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is a sure thing based on the teaser trailer that was released earlier today. The official website has been updated as well, and inside the source code a few small, but notable details have leaked regarding the setting and premise of the game.

According to the description, Black Ops III will take place in a, “dark, twisted future where a new breed of Black Ops soldiers emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the technology.”  The description goes on to call Black Ops III the, “deepest and most ambitious Call of Duty ever”, which is said for every Call of Duty title that’s released so I’d basically ignore that statement if I were you.

You can read the full description for yourself just below:

Call of Duty®: Black Ops 3 is the first title for next-gen hardware in the critically acclaimed Black Ops series. Developed by Treyarch, the award-winning creator of the two most played games in Call of Duty® history. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 deploys players into a dark, twisted future where a new breed of Black Ops soldiers emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the technology we created to stay ahead, in a world where cutting-edge military robotics define warfare. With three unique game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombies, it providing fans with the deepest and most ambitious Call of Duty ever.

Treyarch’s Call of Duty games have usually included more compelling campaigns than their counterparts at Infinity Ward, and the game has also benefited from the 3 year development cycle allowed for every Call of Duty title now as well. It’ll be interesting to see if Treyarch continues what they started with Black Ops III by offering a bit more player choice in the mostly linear campaigns Call of Duty is known for.

We’ll have to just wait and see as the game will officially be revealed on April 26th. Stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for further updates regarding Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
