I have spoken before about the Call Of Duty Black Ops Pass for Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII. I can see why some people are not too keen on this. For one thing, most parts of the world still have no idea how much the Black Ops Pass is going to cost in their area and also Activision has a strict all or nothing approach with DLC in regards to Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII.
I am just picking up the map packs is something that a couple of buddies of mine have said multiple times over the years in regards to past Call Of Duty games. For some people, the online multiplayer is all they care about. They are not interested in zombies and just want more maps to play on.
This is something that is completely understandable and before being able to cherry pick the pieces of DLC you want was good. For me, I always felt that the season pass offered the best value for money for me personally. However, if you are not into zombies why pay the extra few bucks for the season pass over what just getting the maps will cost you?
Going into Black Ops IIII I (and many others) thought that with Activision talking about splitting the player base with new maps that they might make them all free. That is not the case as Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII is going to have 12 new maps as part of the Black Ops Pass.
Getting 12 maps is incredible and if the Black Ops Pass is priced in a similar fashion as to what the season passes have been in the past it is excellent value for money. Still, there are many people out there who are not happy that Activision has taken away the ability to just buy map packs and you have to wonder if these people will pass on all the DLC for Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII.
