Call of Duty Black Ops III will be the twelfth game in the CoD series and the third in Black Ops. Black Ops 3 will use a heavily modified version of the IW engine used previously in Black Ops II and in a slightly bizarre move, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is set to make a cameo in the game.
Call of Duty Black Ops 3: Release date
The next in the CoD franchise will be released on 6 November, which is just a few days before the release of Fallout 4.
Call of Duty Black Ops 3: Price, platforms and editions
Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty Black Ops 3 will be available on various platforms including PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3. You can pre-order the game now ahead of the release date which will get you multiplayer beta access on next-gen consoles and PC plus access to in-game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare items such as custom reticles, an emblem, a calling card, and Advanced Supply Drops.
Note that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions will lack some features like four player co-op (instead it will be limited to two players).
Those prices are for the standard edition but you can also get a Digital Deluxe Edition for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It comes with the season pass (access to four DLC packs), which can also be ordered separately. It also means you can pre-download it ready to play at midnight on release day.
The Digital Deluxe Edition is currently available to pre-order via the Xbox Store and Steam.

Last year’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was an online exclusive to Flipkart. However given that Flipkart is exiting the games space and acting as a marketplace only, it would be difficult to envision the same deal going through this year. Even more so considering that it cost Rs. 4,299 at launch for the PS4 and Xbox One, and Rs. 3,799 for PC.
