Bad news for those planning to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 all by themselves. It doesn’t come with a single player mode. However, the zombie and multiplayer modes will be supported on these last gen consoles. 

A  post on the Call Of Duty website notes, “The ambitious scope of the 1-4 player coop Campaign design of the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions could not be faithfully recreated on old generation hardware.”

No Single Player  Mode For Call of Duty

Criticism pours in

This announcement comes too late in the day because pre-orders have already begun as people from all over the globe want to own the latest Call of Duty.

Critics have been panning the makers for such a delayed announcement. Some have even called their behavior indifferent to the consumers. They believe that simply putting up old Black Ops for download is lax and too light headed to please avid gamers.

There is a consolation

In order to make up for this lag, the game will come $10 cheaper than its original price, Activison confirmed. In addition, it will put up the maiden series Call of Duty: Black Ops for digital download on last generation consoles.

The PS3 and the Xbox 360 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will now be available for about $49.99. For some regions, this includes cost of the additional download as well.
