'Call of Duty: Black Ops 3' nixes campaign on last-gen consoles

If you’re still rockin’ a PS3 or Xbox 360 and are looking forward to the next Call of Duty release, Treyarch dropped a bit of bad news. The studio announced that Black Ops 3 won’t feature a campaign mode on those last-gen consoles. Why? “The ambitious scope of the 1-4 player co-op Campaign design of the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions could not be faithfully recreated on old generation hardware,” the company explains. Due to the fact that the game will only offer multiplayer and Zombie modes, Treyarch is setting the price at $50. As you might expect, other features that take advantage of the power of the Xbox One, PS4 and PC — like eSports tools and the Weapons Paint Shop — won’t be available either. The game arrives on November 6th, and if you were really looking forward to that co-op campaign, there’s the 1TB PS4 bundle.
