Activision have announced a new bonus for season pass holders of Black Ops 3. That’s right, they are not asking for any more money this time, shocking I know! Players will get a 10 rare supply drops, one weapon bribe, 10 liquid divinium. The weapon bribe guarantees you a weapon.
Starting today, anyone who already owns or purchases Black Ops 3 Season Pass in the future will get the following bonus items:
- One Weapon Bribe
- Ten Rare Supply Drops
- Ten Vials of Liquid Divinium
What is a weapon bribe?
Weapon Bribes are a special kind of Supply Drop that include three items, one of which is guaranteed to be a ranged or melee weapon for use in multiplayer. Similarly, the ten Rare Supply Drops offered as part of the Season Pass Bonus will each offer three items, including at least one rare item or better. Supply Drops can feature anything from cosmetic items to unique weapons. For Zombies fans, Vials of Liquid Divinium can be used to craft Gobblegums—special consumables that can provide valuable offensive and defensive bonuses.

Last week leaks came through about a remastered Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare set to be released alongside the new CoD title for 2016, Infinite Warfare. Today, Activision have officially confirmed Infinite Warfare with a reveal trailer and the remastered Modern Warfare with a press release:
“The original Modern Warfare raised the bar on video games and forever will be remembered as one of the best. It’s an honor to be developing the remaster and we are committed to faithfully remastering this classic for Call of Duty fans,” stated Brian Raffel, studio head of Raven Software.
The remastered MW has been developed by Raven Software.
Backfire, Crash and Backlot have been confirmed as part of the 10 multiplayer maps:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered boasts vibrant current generation visuals, with fully improved texture resolution and detail, high-dynamic range lighting, lit and shadowing VFX particles, revamped animation and audio, stunning sound, and much more. Fans will relive the full, iconic campaign as they’re transported around the globe with Capt. Price, Gaz and Soap across all the missions from the original game, including “All Ghillied Up,” “Charlie Don’t Surf,” and “Crew Expendable.” Players will also experience the online multiplayer mode that redefined Call of Duty by introducing killstreaks, XP, Prestige and more, and battle head-to-head in 10 fan-favorite maps from the original multiplayer mode, including classics such as “Crash,” “Backlot” and “Crossfire.”
Let the world bear witness to our ascension.
A high res poster has leaked from what appears to be a Canadian retailer. The poster outlines two editions of Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, Standard and Legacy. The legacy edition will include a remastered CoD 4: Modern Warfare. The poster reveals that the remastered MW will include the original campaign mode and 10 multiplayer maps – these maps are yet to be leaked/detailed.
If only 10 multiplayer maps are coming at launch for the remastered CoD 4 then its safe to assume the others will come alongside in some form of DLC package.
Ali-A has uploaded some Eclipse DLC gameplay footage ahead of the release on Tuesday. With the Rift map Ali-A has come across a little Easter Egg. There is a building in the map with a gun wall inside. Guns on the wall include some current Black Ops 3 guns and some new guns:
- Hammer – LMG – from Black Ops 2
- Remington 870 – Shotgun – from Black Ops 2
- MP7 – Submachine gun
- M27 – Assault Rifle
Exciting stuff. It is likely that the guns will make an appearance in Black Ops 3 multiplayer but knowing Activision’s recent strategy these will likely be earned through the black market supply drops. Which I am sure will annoy many players.
Anyways, check out the video for yourself and make your own decision.
