Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be free with PlayStation Plus for PlayStation 4 for the coming month.

The game will be available for download by PlayStation Plus members from June 11th
to July 11th.

The announcement was made during the Sony pre-show at E3 2018, where Treyarch is also showing off their upcoming sequel to the title, Black Ops 4.

In addition to the availability of Black Ops 3 for PlayStation Plus members, it was also announced that four fan-favorite classic maps from the Black Ops series will be added to Black Ops 3 for players who pre-order Black Ops 4 on the PlayStation store.

The maps being added are:

  • Slums
  • Jungle
  • Firing Range
  • Summit

Remakes of these maps were originally announced as launch maps for Black Ops 4, but now will also be added to Black Ops 3 in a “Back in Black” map pack.

Black Ops 4 is scheduled for release on October 12th – a slight departure from the traditional November release for Call of Duty titles. Players who pre-order the game will also gain access to the beta, which is planned for August.

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
