Black Ops 3 wont have a campaign on PS3 and Xbox 360

If you want to play through the futuristic co-op campaign of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (opens in new tab), you’d better get it on current-gen. Activision today announced (opens in new tab) that Black Ops 3’s PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will include the competitive multiplayer and Zombies mode only.

The last-gen versions of Black Ops 3 were previously said to include two-player co-op (opens in new tab), instead of the four-player experience available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Now Activision says that “the ambitious scope” of the co-op campaign just couldn’t be recreated on the older systems. The multiplayer mode’s Weapon Paint Shop, eSports tools, and other “features built to leverage the next-generation hardware” won’t be included either.

To make up for the dropped features, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will cost $10 less ($49.99) on last-gen and also include a download code for the original Black Ops. The Call of Duty series began on PC in 2003, but it became a true juggernaut during the last console generation. Now it looks like it’s finally leaving it behind – I’d be surprised if whatever comes after Black Ops 3 hits PS3 and Xbox 360 at all.
