Activision has done so much right with their hype for Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII. I really could not be any more excited and while I was not too happy that they ditched the single player campaign. The more story focused zombies mode made up for that in my opinion.
We all knew that Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII was going to have DLC. However, the details have now emerged and in place of what is usually called “the season pass,” we have The Black Ops Pass.
The Black Ops Pass gives you a lot of content. It gives you an extra zombies scenario to play on launch day as well as access to four more during the year. Four extra characters for Blackout which is their Battle Royale mode and 12 multiplayer maps. If you think that you would just like the zombies content so you will just get that….. tough! You buy the Black Ops Pass and get it all or you get none!
It is a very strange decision for Activision to make and they have not yet given a price for the Black Ops Pass. In the past you could just buy what you wanted for a Call Of Duty game, but not this time. If you only like the multiplayer mode and do not care for zombies it does not matter and you have to pay for the zombies content as well.
Many people are not happy about this and are asking why they have changed the way they handle DLC. Treyarch has come out and tried to explain what they are going for, but a lot of people are not happy.
Another strange thing about the Black Ops Pass is that leading up to this game we heard about how the player base always gets split for Call Of Duty with some people having the new maps and some not having them. Well, it looks like it is going to happen again this year too.
I am all in with this new zombies mode and I like to get new maps so it does not bother me, but I can see why some people are upset.
