Brand New ‘Black Ops 3’ Multiplayer Info

A whole sleuth of Call of Duty Black Ops 3 has just been leaked, and you’ll want to see what Treyarch is up to

The best way to dive into all this brand new content popping up around the web is to start with this brand new gameplay reveal that was just released earlier this morning. Check it out!

As you can see from the trailer, it seems developer Treyarch has borrowed a few ideas from many modern shooters to create Black Ops 3‘s gameplay. There appears to be wall riding similar to Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall, and it even appears to feature some sliding, running and boosting movement similar to last year’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Some fans will be happy to see, however, that the newest Call of Duty appears to skip the ex0-suit movement system.

Now, in addition to all the official reveal, many sites have been sharing information they’ve both gathered and experienced. According to several gaming sites, the press was given access to a half dozen or so multiplayer matches, so there is a fair bit of info out on what to expect this November.
