‘Call of Duty 3’ UPDATE: Cool Features Added To The New ‘Black Ops’ Franchise

By Alex Cruz

"Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" will be coming back to the gaming world with a lot of cool new features added, aside from those that were updated.

One example is the Arena, which will be replacing the League Play of "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" as an online ranking system. CODcaster Mode returns, which will let the player take on the role of a game commentator.

The highlight among the features, though, are the Specialist Draft and the "Ban and Protect" systems. These features will turn the gameplay more like "League of Legends" or "Dota 2," according to Engadget.

Specialist Draft will allow the player to gain new abilities and weapons, and this can be achieved by assigning a specific role and power-up patch to each player. However, there can only be one specialist per team.

Bans and Protects lets each team to remove or include certain items in each match.

CODmultiplayer will try something different with the Specialist feature. Players will pick heroes with special abilities as the multiplayer avatar, and equip them with a standard set of weapons.

"Call of Duty 3" is going to reportedly give up its signature gameplay element — the "Follow" icon, Game Rant reported. Nobody, though, from the GamesCom press confirmed that the said feature will be completely gone.

When "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" was revealed by Treyarch, the video game developer promised that it will be investing in the game's PC version.

The new PC features that gamers can expect are 100% ranked dedicated servers, seamless game controller support, two-player split screen, framerate cap slider, strong GPU scaling, SLI and crossfire optimizations and 4K monitor support, FOV slider, improved text chat features available in-game and in lobbies, fantastic steam trading cards and Treyarch Anti-Cheat (TAC).

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be released on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on Nov. 6. PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions are in the works, as per the report of Polygon.
