Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is just under two days away from its international launch. Yesterday we covered all the weapons, perks, modes and specialists you will find in Black Ops 3, and today we'll take a look at the prestige emblems, Dead Ops Arcade 2 and lots more.

Black Ops 3 Prestige Emblems Revealed 

David Vonderhaar confirmed on Twitter that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will feature 10 total prestiges, with each prestige having 55 levels. Prestige Mode allows players to completely reset their ranks and unlocks so they can go through the multiplayer level-up experience again. The armory, weapon camos, calling cards, and emblem icons will not be reset. This is mainly for the Elite Call of Duty fans who love ranking up and playing Multiplayer.

Here are all 11 prestige levels that you can expect in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

Dead Ops Arcade 2 can be played in either 1st or 3rd person


According to leaked videos from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, the Dead Ops Arcade 2 mode that is available in-game can be played in either first or third person. This is different from Dead Ops Arcade 1, as that was only available in third person mode. The first person mode is accessible once you attain a power up. 

The power-up will allow you to play in 1st person mode for a limited time (30 seconds, according to leaks).

Dead Ops Arcade 2 was first revealed by the leak of the Black Ops 3 trophies/achievements list earlier in October.

Why Activision isn't ditching last-gen consoles 


Black Ops 3 won’t have a campaign mode on Xbox 360 and PS3 but they will be releasing multiplayer only titles for both consoles. Here’s why they’re making a version for aging hardware: Activision’s revealed in their latest financial report that there are still 12 million monthly active users for the three-year-old Black Ops II.

"On November 6, 2015, Activision Publishing expects to release the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops III from its award-winning studio, Treyarch. Momentum ahead of launch has been strong and engagement for Call of Duty: Black Ops II grew quarter-over-quarter again to nearly 12 million MAUsB, an unprecedented level for a game that is three years old and only available on old-generation consoles."

That number was 11 million in August, meaning the player base has grown, likely driven by people getting ready for the release of Black Ops 3 in a few days. There is no wonder why Activation as decided to stick with past-gen consoles with a potential audience of 13 million users waiting for Black Ops 3. 

Pre-Load is now live on Steam - FOV value revealed 

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is currently available for pre-load on Steam. Black Ops 3 appears to be around 54GB in size, meaning that PC gamers will need at least 60GB of free hard-disk space

In addition, Treyarch’s Director of Development revealed that the PC version will support FOV values up to 120.
