Treyarch already announced Call of Duty: Black Ops III won’t have a single-player campaign for last-generation consoles, and now they are revealing that you can skip right to the end of it.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s Campaign and Zombies mode Director Jason Blundell, explained why they decided to give players this freedom, and allow them to skip to a certain level in the campaign that they still didn’t reach.
“It gives them the flexibility to consume the content how they want, the unlocking level system is an archaic mentality we’ve had since we did bedroom development back in the day – you do this, then go on to the next one.”
“Consumers and game players in general are far more mature these days. There are so many things vying for our interests today. It’s about, how do they want to consume it? Maybe they put it down on level two, and then they’re in work the next day, and some guy says, “dude, you’ve got to check out level four!” And he’s like, “okay, I’ll have a quick look.” That’s totally fine. I think it’s their choice.”
He already knows that several people might just skip to the end, and won’t get to experience the whole story. However, he thinks the campaign has “more than just the end moment.”
“Sure, people will jump on and play the last level. Okay. Cool. That’s up to them.”
“The way the story is constructed, it’s more than just the end moment. I’m sure there are many films and other media types where you could read the last page, or see the last minutes, but really you’ve got to experience all of the other stuff to truly enjoy it.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops III launches on November 6 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
