Black Ops 3 PC Modding Tools in 2016!
“And yes, this is for real,” posted the Call of Duty director of development Cesar Stastny when Treyarch announced that mapping and modding will be coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 in 2016.
While there have been many PC mods available for the Call of Duty series before, this is the first time that the developer is providing official tools and support for fans who want to leave their mark on the game.
Here is the development plan so far from Treyarch:
You will be able to create Maps & Game Modes and more!
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
While none of this is set in stone, Treyarch is definitely listening to their fans by allowing for the creation of modded content, custom made maps, and unranked servers for players to use.
They have stated that they plan to keep fans updated periodically with development blogs so stay tuned for what should be a very interesting and exciting addition to Call of Duty.
