  • Multiplayer Maps for Black Ops 3 Revealed

    multiplayer maps black ops 3I'm actually quite excited about the singleplayer for Call of Duty Black Ops 3, but what's equally as exciting is the new changes being made to the multiplayer.

    The multiplayer is of course where the majority of players will be spending most of their time, so if you are like me you are probably wondering about the different maps that will be available at launch.

    Fortunately, a few details on the maps in Black Ops 3 have already been shared, along with some other multiplayer information. We only have details about three different maps so far, but that's more than enough to keep us patiently waiting a little bit longer for more information.

    The known map details are provided below.

    Hunted: A Mid to long range engagement map with a waterfall in the middle allowing for swimming mechanics

    Combine: A tight, close quarters map allowing for SMG's and shotguns to dominate with a risky wall running spot.

    Stronghold: A snowy/icy based map in the foothills of Switzerland, allowing for CQB with long range engagements

    Treyarch have also given details on the game modes that will be returning to Black Ops 3. These have been listed below.

    Team Deathmatch
    Kill Confirmed
    Hard point
    Free for All
    Ground War
    Search and Destroy
    Capture the Flag

    Finally, a new rumor has suggested that a brand new weapon customization system was coming to Black Ops 3. Called GunSmith, players will be able to use this system to create their own weapon camos, using up to 64 layers to place on three sides of their weapon.

  • COD Advanced Warfare Zombies Trailer Released

    cod advanced warfare zombiesIn anticipation of the release of the new Havoc DLC planned for the end of January, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare developers, Sledgehammer Games, have just released a new trailer for the upcoming Exo Zombies game mode, which will be made available as part of the upcoming DLC.

    Interestingly, the trailer shares a bit of a backstory into why there is a sudden zombie outbreak, and why a group of soldiers are attempting to hold off the relentless hordes. In the trailer, the story is explained -

    "Untrained and unprepared, four Atlas employees must survive a horror unlike any other. John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal star in Exo Zombies, coming to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC in 2015."

    It seems as if the zombies mode will be released as an episodic co-operative multiplayer mode. Whilst we aren't entirely sure, it would make sense to assume that each episode of the zombies mode will release alongside each piece of DLC for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.

    For zombie fans, I think that the new zombie mode in Advanced Warfare is worth getting excited about - the game will feature a new twist on the tried and trusted zombies gameplay we have seen in previous COD games by adding super fast exo zombies that make use of the exo skeleton featured in Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.

    So far, we aren't sure how much content players will be able to play through in the first episode of exo zombies, but hopefully there will be maps that players can play a more traditional round based version of zombies on.

  • Details of Gears of War 3's Maps

    Everything you need to know about the Multiplayer Maps in GOW3

    So I took some time out of my busy schedule here at Evil Controllers to do some research on Gear of War 3 for the sake of preparing for the game and its highly intense multiplayer gameplay. In result, I managed to obtain some great data about some of multiplayer maps. Being a nice guy, I couldn't hog all the information to myself. So I decided to share with everyone in the Evil community what I have found. So, sit down, grab a notepad, because what you are going to see here could help your game on September 20th.

    Checkout's as you can see, takes place in was once a busy superstore/mall. The entire business tried to make one final sale and grab at money in the weeks before the HOD evacuations, but in the end they had leave everything behind for the sake of their lives. This map calls for close-quarters combat via the store aisles. We emphasize in the choice of weapons for this map, as especially with those that make great use of cover and fast paced action. This map literally means "everything must go" included your opponent's faces.

    While the infection spreads across Sera at a rapid pace, the planet is falling apart as well. You can see this by the structure and design of this map. It is highly suggested to head for high ground as this map emphasizes combat on the elevated overpass, where you and your team can hole up and use the height to an advantage. However the opposing team can use mortars and orbital strikes with ease if you are up on the high ground.

    Once the stomping grounds of the Cole Train, it is now basically a skeleton of its former glory days. However this map is not to be taken lightly. With the map no longer restricted to the field, whoever controls and stays at the concession stand the most, is at an advantage (oddly enough that sounds like me at a Bears game). The scoreboard will keep track of every point earned, but it can be used as a deadly trap.

    While the Locust have begun to carve mines into the Seran Deadlands to seek out new territory they can call home, the territory they have made is now a heavily battled area that will see a lot of lancer ripping action and hammerburst punishment. The trenches are small and tight and have clean lines of sight across the entire battlefield. Additionally, the central hill area leads to a fortified bunker vantage point for anyone who gets there first. Once taken, it is hard to let go unless the opposing force manages to use the sandstorm's cover to take the area for themselves.

    So that concludes the research I have found about my soon-to-be-favorite maps in Gears of War 3. I hope this advice and research will be useful to you as it was to me. I may follow up this blog with the other maps in GOW3, so keep those notepads tight because we got other GOW3 information to go through.

  • All of Gears of War 3's Multiplayer Maps Modes revealed

    Modes and Maps for GOW3 are now released to the general public to view.

    Just recently, Epic Games unveiled the contents of Gears of War 3's multiplayer maps and modes for all their fans to see. A surprise to a lot of the fans of the series is the remastered version ofGears of War classic multiplayer map, Gridlock. Including Gridlock, the maps round out to ten multiplayer maps that will be included in the game.

    All ten maps, which can be seen in the gallery here on Kotaku, will be playable all modes (versus, beast, and horde). The newly remade Gridlock will take place at night, will get a graphical upgrade, and new weapon spawn points. Epic then went on to say that they listened closely to the feedback from their public beta to refine the maps people got to play in the beta: Old Town, Thrashball and Trenches.

    With ten maps coming out for it's release, it is likely that Gears of War 3 will have more maps as downloadable content in the near future like they did with their previous titles.
