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?
