With Activision demurring on throwing its own E3 press conference, Black Ops III showed up at Sony’s presser instead.
I’ll admit, the Black Ops franchise is probably the point where I’m most interested in Call of Duty—but that was partially a fondness for Cold War-era politics. Black Ops III seems to abandon that era for the near-future trappings of both Ghosts and Advanced Warfare, the other two Call of Duty series. I’m not sure if I’m as interested in the campaign, as a result.
As for multiplayer, it looks even more like Titanfall than Advanced Warfare did—wall-running, insane jumps, you name it. I guess the old Treyarch/Infinity Ward dynamic still exists, even when Infinity Ward is in fact Respawn.
