Black Ops III embracing mods on PC next year


Good show, Treyarch

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is going to look a whole lot different next year on PC.

Series fans have wanted robust mod support for years now, and Treyarch is listening. Players will be able to create not only maps in Black Ops III, but whole modes. Lots of potential for remixing existing content (Zombies, Freerun) or spinning it off into something unrecognizable.

There aren’t many specifics yet, but this is what we do know:

  • We will include Unranked Dedicated Server Files with the tools so you can run servers with modded content anywhere you choose.
  • We will provide an Unranked Server Browser so you can easily find and join servers with modded content.
  • Closed Alpha target date: March 2016

That’s the plan today, anyway. It may change, for better or worse, as we move into 2016.
