Hands-On With The Enhanced Mobility And Specialists

With Black Ops III, Treyarch is changing a lot about the Call of Duty formula. On the campaign side of things, the developer is embracing four-player co-op, more open spaces, and near-future technology for its missions. The developer is also promising lots of customization options throughout. While I had the opportunity to see much of these new features in action during a studio visit to Treyarch last week, I also got my hands on the competitive multiplayer.

Here are several ways in which Treyarch is changing the game for Black Ops III.

Treyarch Unveils First Details

Activision has revealed the first details for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, the newest entry in gaming’s biggest first-person shooting franchise. Taking place a few decades after the catastrophic, history-changing events of Black Ops II, Black Ops III is set to inject more new technology and mechanics than any Call of Duty franchise in years.

Calling in reinforcements

Harnessing the power of cybernetic augmentations and a new sub-dermal technology called Direct Neural Interface, soldiers in the campaign are more capable to combat the threats that face them than ever before. DNI technology enables soldiers to communicate with one another in new ways, which comes in handy when considering the new design approaches the campaign of Black Ops III takes.

We asked executive producer Jerk Gustafsson to tell us what the team has in store.
