The third title in the Call of Duty: Black Ops franchise promises a slew of great features when it is released in November this year.
According to Gamingbolt, a member of Treyarch’s development team said on Twitter that Black Ops 3 will be released with improved anti-hacker technology.
A Treyarch developer whose Twitter handle is pcdev revealed that Black Ops 3 will include TAC 3.0 to keep hackers out of multiplayer battles.
TAC 3.0 will also include a “dedicated TAC team keeping the game clean for (gamers),” pcdev’s Tweet said.
Conversely, players will also be able to do in-game “hacking and blackhatting” when Black Ops 3 is released.
Hacking, in the Call of Duty: Black Ops franchise, is a process that involves a player taking over computer-controlled heavy weapons belonging to the enemy. The player can then used the “hacked” weapon against his in-game opponents.
According to Youth Health Mag, Treyarch’s David Vonderhaar said on Twitter that they are currently working on how hacking and black hatting will work in the new Black Ops game.
“We have big plans for “hacking” mechanics and are still working it out,” Vonderhaar tweeted in response to a fan’s question.
The Master Herald also said that the game’s release date of November 6, which falls on a Friday, was intended to ensure a fun weekend for players.
Gamers will be able to enjoy the game over the weekend before school begins again on Monday, the article said.
Call of Duty: Black Ops will be available for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
GameZone had reported on the possibility that the game might also be released in previous generation consoles.
The article cited publisher Activision’s “refusal to rule out” the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, as well as Treyarch not saying directly that Black Ops will only be available for current generation consoles. GameZone also pointed out that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare title was in fact developed by another studio, instead of Treyarch, for release in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
