Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 aims to deliver a more cerebral gaming experience than Black Ops 2, with developer Treyarch revealing that the AI will be smarter and more challenging.
In an interview with Edge magazine, Black Ops 3 director Dan Bunting talked about how they changed the game’s formula to make it more enjoyable for players.
Bunting specifically stated:
“We still push people into choke points and constrain heights, but we wanted to give players an extended mastery curve, to expand the upper limits of how they learn movement through the map, we automate a lot of things. We let players concentrate on the combat; everything else is fluid – it sublimates to a primal part of your brain.”
The AI will have improved environmental awareness, requiring players to have more situational awareness than in past Call Of Duty titles. Campaign director Jason Blundell added:
“With the greatest reverence and respect for [Call of Duty], sometimes the tactic is just left trigger, right trigger, dead, with some of our new AI archetypes, that won’t be viable. We’ve also opened up the spaces, so you need much better situational awareness.”
Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 is expected to release on November 6, 2015, for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. What improvements do you want made?
This Is Mortal Kombat 11’s Official Cover, What Do You Think?
It’s familiar, but different; simpler, but engaging.
Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has revealed the official cover art for Mortal Kombat 11, and its of little surprise that it only features Scorpion.
Compared to Mortal Kombat 10, the overall design is brighter and simpler, featuring a yellow, hot background that surprisingly works well with Scorpion’s yellow outfit.
Scorpion’s pose is imposing, and its interesting that NetherRealm chose go with the more modern version of the character rather than the classic one that appeared in the reveal trailer.
Mortal Kombat 11 releases on April 23, 2019 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.

Epic Games Store New Return Policy Allows Unlimited Refunds, But…
Gamers get more leniency and a simplified verification process.
Epic has updated the Epic Games Store’s return policy to make it more competitive with other digital storefronts.
With the old policy, you were allowed just two refunds per year, but now everyone has unlimited refunds within 14 days of purchase and with under two hours played.
The Epic Games Store doesn’t have a “self-service” solution, at least not yet, so you will have to go through Customer Support to request a refund.
A change was also made to the verification process for receiving a refund. Customers no longer have to provide their IP address, last four digits of the card used, account creation date, and other information if the return meets the set criteria, though a contact form will still need to be used.
Epic plans to add more regional pricing options to the store. There are currently 30 different regions available, encompassing a total of 130 countries.

Half-Life 2 Co-Writer Eric Wolpaw Has Returned To Valve, But Why?
What could Valve be working on?
After leaving the company in February 2017, Half-Life 2 and Portal co-writer Eric Wolpaw has returned to Valve.
Shack News confirmed the writer’s return after finding his name listed in the credits for Valve card game Artifact. This would mean Wolpaw joined sometime in the fourth quarter of 2018.
Jay Pinkerton, another writer that left with Wolpaw, has also returned to the company, but it’s not known what the two are working on.
Whether its the rumored Half-Life VR or some other project, for Valve to successfully entice two of its writers back into the fold, it must be working on something exciting.
