If you own an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 and thought you might miss out on Call of Duty: Black Ops III, you can rest easy. Publisher Activision will release the game for both of the older game consoles this fall, in addition to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms.
That's the good news. The bad news is that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions won't have all of the features that gamers will get for the current generation of consoles. Activision says:
"While the teams are working to deliver the best possible experience for Xbox 360 and PS3, naturally there will be some differences across generations. For instance, the campaign mode on Xbox 360 and PS3 is currently in development with a goal of enabling two-player cooperative play, instead of the four-player cooperative campaign on next-gen. There will also be some other features and functionality built specifically for the new generation of consoles that cannot be supported on Xbox 360 and PS3."
The upcoming mutiplayer beta test for Black Ops III will also only be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC versions. The full version of the game will be released on November 6.
