Activision plan for ‘many years’ of Call of Duty movies

Activision Blizzard Studios are planning for potentially years of Call of Duty movies, drawing inspiration from the interwoven Marvel Cinematic Universe. Activision reckon that Call of Duty could carry a series, jumping between the first-person shooter's sub-brands for different perspectives on war. Chinny reckon.

Steam Charts: They Said It Could Never Happen

I had all the characteristics of a blogger — frayed jeans, opinions, laptop, tea — but my depersonalisation was so intense, had gone so deep, that my normal ability to compile charts had been eradicated, the victim of a slow, purposeful erasure. I was simply imitating top ten articles, a rough resemblance of a best-sellers list, with only a dim corner of my mind functioning.…

Cod Blops 3 Mod Tools Launch Into Open Beta

The next Call of Duty may be only five weeks from launching, but last year's model is about to get a new lease on life. Developers Treyarch last night launched the long-awaited Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 [official site] mod tools into open beta, letting people create and play with custom levels, weapons, and modes - y'know, mods. Treyarch still have a bit of…

Black Ops 3 DLC Includes Dragons Because Why Not?

Yo, you know what would really spice up Black Ops 3's [official site] Zombies mode is some fire-breathing lizards because dammit, this is Call of Duty and they can do whatever they want. Apparently. Alright, I'll admit that as far as DLC goes, having giant swathes of mechanized zombies facing off against dragons in the ruins of Stalingrad does sound pretty cool.

Arma 3 And COD: Blops 3 Free On Steam This Weekend

Maybe you think you'll like shooting things, but you're not sure what flavour of shooting. Are you the type who likes tense, simulated military manshoots you can play with dozens of friends in wide open areas, with missions you make yourself and vehicles you can pilot and drive? Good news! Arma 3 is free on Steam this weekend. Or are you the type who likes…

This Year, Call Of Duty May Be Heading To Space

Call of Duty: Space Wars. Orbital Ops, maybe. Post-Modern Warfare. Space Warfare? Probably not that one. Whatever the name might be, there have been rumours and suggestions of a space-based Call of Duty for several years and it seems increasingly likely that this year's Infinity Ward release might be that game. I hope the moon explodes in at least one mission.

Cod Blops 3 Releases Nuketown Map For All

Call of Duty doesn't really have time for 'classic' maps, given that a new game comes jumping across time and space every year (smart money says 2016's CoD will pit World War 1 Tommies against robotic Visigoths from the future). CoD's Black Ops subseries has run long enough to establish Nuketown as a staple - though since Blops 2 it's been held back as a…

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Free Multiplayer Weekend

Call of Duty: Black Ops III - Multiplayer Starter Pack is a big mouthful for a simple idea: it's Cod Blops 3's [official site] ranked multiplayer sold separately as a cheaper standalone game. It's an interesting experiment in selling CoD's many modes separately and a short one - Activision will stop selling it on Monday. But until Sunday evening, you can check out this substantial…

Cop A Load Of Cod In Blops 3’s Multiplayer Standalone

Activision are finally trying splitting Call of Duty's many modes into separate games, for folks who are only interested in part or want a cheap way in, though they've started in a baffling way. Last night they released a standalone version of the Cod Blops 3 [official site] ranked multiplayer which costs only £11.59/14,49€/$14.99 - about a quarter of the full game's price. I'd hoped…

Activision Blizzard Studios Planning CoD Movies & More

Following that Warcraft movie trailer, Activision Blizzard announced over the weekend that they've launched a new arm dedicated to making movies and TV out their games. The first celluloid fruit of Activision Blizzard Studios will be a TV cartoon adaptation of the Spyro spin-off series Skylanders, and they're awfully keen on making Call of Duty talkies too. Oh, if Pip were in today she'd know…

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 Is Out, But A Bit Buggy

The Big Blopper, The Blopster, The Codchop, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 [official site] launched last night, and it's the first in the FPS series to really interest me in a while. Campaign co-op, customisable cyborgs filled with cyberbees, and Jeff Goldblum are right up my alley and oh! supposedly it's a wee touch less corridor-y too. It has a few problems at launch,…

CoD: Black Ops III To Receive Modding And Map Tools

Call of Duty: Black Ops III [official site] looks just about weird enough to be interesting. Whether it's Jeff Goldblum's zombie-splatting magician, the introduction of full-on Chaos powers or the general rocket-powered leap into a robo-soldier sci-fi future, BLOPS the Third does not appear to be constrained by reason. Of course, it may still be restrained by corridors but on the server and modding side…

Activision Blizzard And Their New Team Of Esports

So Activision Blizzard's creating a new division "devoted to esports" within the company. It's going to be chairman-ed by the former CEO of ESPN and the NFL Network, Steve Bornstein, and senior vice presidente-ed by a co-founder of Major League Gaming, Mike Sepso. There's a press release and everything.

Watch More Jeff Goldblum In Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3

Alright, so we're not the sorts to post every Call of Duty: Black Ops III [official site] trailer, but we are the sorts to post things with Jeff Goldblum in. We've known he's going to be in Black Ops 3 since July, but now there's a new trailer explaining the set up for why he, playing a magician, is going to be fighting alongside a…

Call Of Duty Black Ops 3’s Story Trailer/Dumb Marketing

As far as marketing stunts go, Activision's Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 [official site] flurry on Twitter through the week was, how shall I put it, not very well thought out. Live-tweeting a fake-but-pretending-to-be-real crisis will turn heads, but what happened to simply showing off a trailer or dropping some screens? Don't worry, we've got you covered. RPS: serving you, minus the hysteria.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Bans And Protects

Massively jetlagged as I am, I decided to ease back into the post-International real world by catching up with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 [official site] announcements from Gamescom. Either I am stuck in a MOBA fever dream or Blops 3 really is introducing a protect and ban phase to competitive play. Tell you what. I'm going to cover it as if it's real…

Jeff Goldblum & Ron Perlman Star In Cod Blops 3 Zombies

I would buy the heck out of Call of Duty: Black Ops III's [official site] co-op Zombies mode as a cheaper standalone game. The mode has developed into such silly schlock horror, and draws an increasingly impressive cast of folks from cult movies while going weirder places. This year's offering, named Shadows of Evil, will see Jeff 'Jeff Chuffing Goldblum' Goldblum, Ron 'War Never Changes'…

Cyberwizards & Robobees In 13 Mins Of Cod Blops 3 Co-op

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 [official site] turns soldiers into cyberwizards with dominion over cyberbrains and robobees, but does that make the game much different from any other CoD, Blops or otherwise? For the first ten minutes of a new thirteen-minute gameplay trailer showing off four-player co-op, the answer appears to be no. Soldiers run along corridors in a sandy city and shout and…

I Guess CODBLOPS Is Basically Unreal Tournament Now

Wall-jumping and robo-soldiers and crazy weapons and teleporters and OTT awards for doing almost anything: whatever would Captain Price think? Me, I'm sort of relieved that Call of Duty Black Ops III [official site] has given up all pretence of military realism and entirely embraced science-fictional absurdity: it's as though the series is finally allowing itself to be what it's wanted to be for years.…
