Things Have Got a Whole Lot More ‘Realistic’ for Black Ops 3
Rikki Wright / 2 years ago
Gone are the days of running around like a headless chicken, spraying bullets everywhere and ammo drops around every corner. We have been begging for harder game modes for years and slowly, but surely, the difficulty has increased.
The latest game to receive a harder game mode is the upcoming Black Ops III (3). Generally you can choose between easy/novice/hard/expert, but now the developers have introduced “Realistic”. Xbox Achievements Jason Blundell said: “[In Realistic] you have one point of life, so if you’re shot once, you’re dead. It completely changes the way you play the game. You all have to survive as a group. You end up respecting the level in a completely different way, and once gunfire opens up, everyone just drops to the ground, because if any one bullet hits you or a grenade goes off near you, you’re dead.”
The AI’s have also been given an update to “make independent decisions” and there will be “more types of AI than we’ve ever had before” said Blundell.
Will the AI receive a similar one-shot death rule, or are we going to have to stock up on ammo before each kill? Is it just me or does that sound more of a suicidal game mode rather than realistic? Surely realism would be you bleed out unless you have a direct headshot or something just as bad. Let’s find out when the game is finally released on November 6 2015.
