If twitter user @Long_Sensation is to be believed, the good ship Black Ops III has sprung a major leak (see the bottom of the post for a full transcribe of the ‘leak’).
Elsewhere on the internet of leaks, a Dutch retailer has released some promotional material indicating a November 6 launch date with access to a beta for those that pre-order. We’ve all seen some clever photoshopping in the past, but could these ‘leaks’ be legit?
The world reveal is penned for tomorrow so we won’t have long to ponder this question, but if LongSensation’s claims are true, I must admit to considering picking up the next Call of Duty, besides, I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Black Ops and although the teaser trailer focused on prosthetic limbs, something I thought Advanced Warfare had covered, I’m hopeful that the true focus of Black Ops III continues on the themes of its previous titles – mind control and psychological warfare.
For now, I’m hopeful that the new Call of Duty will indeed have a four-player co-op campaign – I do love a bit of co-op – and the statement that the campaign can be tackled in a variety of ways is most appealing. It all sounds rather promising, and from the sloppy visuals of this leak, I would think that whoever grabbed these shots, did so in a rush before being busted – surely some heads will roll for this, or at least they should!
