For the past several weeks, I have been dealing with an update error for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on an Xbox One console in our house. Now, I’m self-throttling my broadband data so I don’t go over Comcast’s 300GB/mo cap. [Read more…]
Activision dropped the first official trailer for the upcoming installment of Call of Duty, which is due out November 6 on PC, Xbox One and PS4. This is Black Ops III with a story mode that seems to come out of the Terminator franchise with a plot centered around the blurred lines between humanity and cutting-edge military robotics that define the future of combat.
Black Ops III is the first title from Treyarch that takes advantage of the three-year dev cycle for the series, which is now split among Treyarch (Black Ops), Infinity Ward (Ghosts) and Sledgehammer Games (Advanced Warfare).
One of the big new features is that the entire campaign can be played in four-player co-op online or two-player co-op locally on a split screen. Also, a Specialists system allows you to choose from nine player types in multiplayer for a unique play style and a power weapon or ability specific to that class.
There is plenty new stuff to be excited about in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and it certainly looks like the three-year dev cycle is paying off.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 releases November 6, 2015 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. You can Pre-order the game now and gain access to the Black Ops III Multiplayer Beta here on Amazon.

It’s official. Halo 5 will arrive on Xbox One on October 27, 2015.
The launch date was revealed last night during a commercial break of the season finale of The Walking Dead. Two commercials showed competing viewpoints of the Master Chief and the mysterious Agent Locke, with the final commercial flashing the 10.27.15 release date.
While that’s great we have a release date now, it is still several months away. The Halo Master Chief Collection gets more and more stale by the day. Let’s just hope 343 doesn’t screw up the Halo 5 launch the way it did the Master Chief Collection with unplayable multiplayer matchmaking.
You can pre-order Halo 5 on Amazon.com.
