We may only be a few months into 2016, but already it’s shaping up to be an incredible year for Call of Duty esports. In January we launched the Call of Duty World League, presented by PlayStation 4 — a new global esports league operated by Activision that takes competitive Call of Duty to a whole new level with regional LAN events, live-streamed competitions throughout the year, and a combined $3 million prize pool.
Before we sign off for the year, we wanted to celebrate the creators who make not only PlayStation.Blog, but this industry in its entirety possible. It’s these studios who create the worlds we yearn to escape to, who write the stories upon whose every word we hang. It’s thanks to them that we can do what we love to do.
I’m proud to announce that we are bringing together the number one console in the world with Call of Duty: Black Ops III in a brand new Call of Duty: Black Ops III Standard Edition PS4 Bundle, available for $349.99 (MSRP).
Treyarch’s Zombies is still my all-time favorite co-op shooter. It’s a chilling challenge that pits you and some friends against relentless waves of zombies. Your arsenal: constant communication, careful teamwork, and whatever firearms you can scrounge from the all-important Mystery Box. It’s demanding of its players but, in the end, an immensely rewarding experience that always pays off.
Guitar Hero Live launches on PS4 in just two short weeks! Rhythm game aficionados, myself included, have fond memories of their repeated attempts (and, hopefully, eventual victories) to conquer the series’ most difficult songs: Jordan in Guitar Hero 2, Through the Fire and Flames in Guitar Hero 3, and so on.
Black Ops III engrosses players in a dark and gritty future, where a new breed of Black Ops soldier has emerged, and the lines between humanity and military technology have been blurred.
It’s time! Minutes ago, Treyarch and Activision officially kicked off Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Multiplayer Beta on PS4. Seeing that this is officially a Really Big Deal, we wanted to create a definitive resource for PS4 gamers looking to jump in. See below for crucial details cultivated by the fine folks at Treyarch and Activision.
