In the article ESPN posted today announcing Marshawn Lynch’s involvement in Black Ops 3, they’ve added a photo of Lynch at Treyarch Studios playing the multiplayer mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The image shows off our first look at the game’s multiplayer HUD, giving fans a glimpse of the new mini map and on the far right, the new scorestreaks UI.

In addition, the image also shows that Lynch was playing Black Ops 3 multiplayer on the PlayStation 4. The image does show Xbox Ones underneath both TVs, but the controller in Lynch’s hand is the PS4 controller (with the PS4 consoleย in the center).

Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer will be playable at E3 next week…stay tuned for the latest details.

  • Well Jordan did get the credit after all ๐Ÿ˜›

    (I think I was the first to post the pic)

    • Max Martinez

      Yeah, I feel that it is fair that you get the credit. All Jordan did was tag LongSensation and CharlieIntel.

      • No, I don’t think anyone deserves credit

        Well, maybe Jordan for pointing out the album for CharlieIntel, it was pretty hidden on the article. It’s not a big deal ๐Ÿ˜›

    Not the best i can do in photoshop but here’s a better image ๐Ÿ™‚

    LERI-? Or potentially misinterpreting the “I” wrong? Hmm…

      Nicely done.

        Nice job bro

    • T-Bizzle

      Might be a partial of the word ALERT.

  • TheGamerBeast

    i can see 2 XBOX 1 and 2 PS4 consoles in the middle but yeah he’s playing with the PS4….i really hope there’s no exclusivity this year

    • SpetsnazAIRBORNE

      Lol I saw the same thing. Look at the controller he’s using its a ps4 controller though

    • The PS4 is on the right.

      • SpetsnazAIRBORNE

        And the left and the far right

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      You’ll be disappointed. They’re going with PlayStation.

      • Juses

        Proof?

        • Spodermen

          *Pruuf

      • Kenny

        We’ll see in a couple of days. I just feel like the only exclusive will be the season pass owners on all 5 platforms. I mean, if PlayStation gets the exclusive all of the trailers would be spammed with their logo and that robotic “playstation” voice at the end. After all, that is what Xbox and PS do with every exclusive they have. If one company got the exclusive, they would be advertising and bragging whenever and wherever possible, yet that is not seen in any of the trailers. Why play on PS4? Not because of exclusive rights, but because of the lack of them. They can chose the platform they want and PS4 is the most solid of them all.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          There is an explanation or two about this. They could be keeping it a secret until E3, or negotiations are still going underway. I’ll go with the first one.

          The same things will happen to many multiplats this year.

  • SpetsnazAIRBORNE

    I saw the Xbox one in the picture then I’m like “shit Xbox exclusivity dlc deal…” Then I saw the ps4 next to it and I’m like “oh shit NA I was wronge”. #PS4

    • DZK x HD

      And hes holding a ps4 controller :p

      • SpetsnazAIRBORNE

        Lol I hope there’s a ps4 exclusivity dlc deal this year. I hated waiting all those years now it’s xboxes turn to cry about it

        • spartanelite

          Fuck you asshole I hope its either Xbox or equal

          • Bloodyman2103

            No. Now it’s your time to wait an extra month ๐Ÿ™‚

          • spartanelite

            Nahhh I’m good well see what happens bandwagoners

          Why should anybody have to cry about it?…

          • SpetsnazAIRBORNE

            Because it’s xboxes turn to fell the pain of being last

        • pipo

          Who the fuck cares about waiting 4 weeks on some damn extra stuff in a video game lmao only nerd do

  • Tylor Vi

    there is an xbox one underneath each tv but he is playing with a ps4 controller. hmmmm

    • PS4 to the side…

      • Guywithbrains

        PS4 has power on. On the left light is white and on the right light seems to be blue-ish.

  • BiGSHoTS

    He has a ps4 remote playing in xbox 1?

  • Looks like a Ghosts minimap

    • ccrows

      Wondering if he’s using a perk to increase it though?…

  • FYI: The game is running on PS4, there are two of them, next to the monitor stands >_<

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      IKR that idiot on Twitter thought he was playing on Xbox, when the dude was holding a PS4 controller. What a fanboy

  • Trae

    Nah nah nah…nah nah nah! (Eminem voice)

  • jordanxbrookes

    It’s either the Ghosts minimap is returning or the perk Peripherals from Advanced Warfare is returning.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Seems like the sock accounts are returning, too. I had an AW fanboy sock account trolling me today.

    • This minimap plus VSAT…
      Don’t know what Vahn meant with countering the VSAT, but if it’s like BO2, then this will be so useful.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Countering the VSAT is so stupid. Hope there’s no counter in the final build.

        • some2example2

          the vsat is stupid in the first place.

          • Thatlazykid

            Wow -_-

        • I agree, although the only fair counter for it in my opinion would be an EMP. Not the grenade but the actual streak, and it shouldn’t be a support streak

          • Kobrah

            Also a simple counter UAV will render a VSAT useless ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Guywithbrains

          So by your logic high scorestreaks shouldn’t have counter at all. You know what happens when there is no counter to OP things right?

          • Counter would be to kill the people on streaks.

          • Guywithbrains

            How about if my teammates have their heads in their ass and they feed enemy? When enemy gets VSAT it is basically game over and stomping starts from there because enemy sees where I come from so I just die.

            Believe me I have experienced it and it was not cool at all.

          • Well then you find a spot that you can defend, and you don’t start rushing around the corners. It makes no sense to have killstreaks as reward, that can be just disabled in a few seconds. You’ve gotten enough score in one life to get the VSAT, you earned it. So how does the enemy team earn disabling the VSAT, if they couldn’t kill you off your streak?

            It’s pretty shit indeed if your own team isn’t helping you, but having easy VSAT counters doesn’t make sense either. If it had counters the streak would be useless, and streaks make COD what it is. The big aircraft like VTOL Warship for example, they can be countered. But you can defend your streak while it’s being shot down. There’s nothing you can do with the VSAT however. Countering perk would make VSAT useless, so only reasonable counter I see, would be activating the EMP scorestreak, which is another reward and has to be earned.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Or a Counter-UAV which if you’re not good at Call of Duty is still easy to obtain.

          • Guywithbrains

            Well… fair enough. But let’s say that everything that kills should have a counter. And VSAT needs a little bit of fixing but it can be balanced. Maybe sweeping would be at least slightly balancing thing.

          • Everything that kills definitely needs to have *some kind of* counter, but I don’t know yet what they are going to do. Just like it is now with attack dogs in BO1 and BO2, you can easily shoot them or go to an elevated position. It wouldn’t made sense if the dogs were invincible just killing everyone

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            No, that would ruin VSAT, and nobody would run it if it was just a glorified UAV.

          • ccrows

            It sucks, but in BO2 it wasn’t that hard to counter. (even as a lone wolf)

            (BO2) Spam Emp nades, and pick up more nades with Scav – or run Counter UAV streaks. Even if you had neither one, back into in a corner for about 30 seconds and let people come to you.

            Most VSAT kills were shooting people in the back since that gave you the best odds. Yes it sucks having teammates feeding VSATS, but there were ways to survive and then throw up your own VSAT…

          • Bigi345

            The whole point of the VSAT is that you can’t counter it. If you can it might as well not be in the game because it’s just a pointy UAV

          • Kobrah

            But it can be countered… A counter UAV most obviously, also an EMP (streak or grenade)

          • ccrows

            *Pfffft* Not with this community. Counter means to simply leave… *SMH*

          • Spodermen

            hellu fagit

          • jordanxbrookes

            Did you really just say that? Lmao.

          • Guywithbrains

            Yes. Some players like using cheap and easier methods for stomping on noobs who can’t do anything. It might be funny for them but sometimes it is better thing to think from enemies’ perspective.

            >>>In my opinion<<< VSAT should be removed. It only brings unbalance to the game. It should take more skill to find an enemy and then get a kill. VSAT is a cheap way to get kills because you see enemy on the minimap ALL THE TIME and that is why I prefer it being removed. Or fix it by make it sweep like advanced UAV.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The VSAT is a killstreak, it’s supposed to be powerful. Might as well get rid of the UAV.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Giving all streaks a definitive counter would make them pointless to get. There has always been a counter to the VSAT, it’s called a counter UAV. Players should be rewarded for doing well, and other players should be punished for letting that player do well. If you’re upset that someone is doing well on the other team, it’s your (team’s) duty to stop them.

        • ccrows

          What’s wrong with having a counter UAV just as long as there is a perk that counters a counter UAV?…

          • jordanxbrookes

            I’m on about in terms of there being a perk to counter the VSAT. Counter-UAV and EMP is fine.

          • ccrows

            Works for me.

            I’m still trying to get as much info about the perks in this game as well. Still haven’t heard if there’s “no falling damage” built in, and if the game also has unlimited sprint… *shrugs*

          • jordanxbrookes

            Black Ops 3 does have unlimited sprint, not sure about fall damage.

  • Trae

    I’m a PS4 guy but it’s possible that he’s playing on a xbox 1 with a PS4 controller…they make those USB drives that run modded controllers…just saying

    • He’s still playing on a PS4. Look around the monitor stands.

      • Trae

        I see that…I was just trying to give XBOX fanboys a glimpse of hope!

      • Aceshigh87

        There is also a Sony headset on the desk in front of him. Doesn’t mean that’s what it’s running on but unlikely they’d leave it out if no one was using he PS4.

        • Smayo

          But why put an xbox one under both tv’s then ? What’s the logic behind that if there would be a sony exclusively deal this time around ?

          • Aceshigh87

            The Sony deal doesn’t mean it won’t come out for Xbox, they still need to test it and thus still need XB1’s and PC’s around.

            Pretty much everyone that has played with early access has done so on a PS though which has never happened before so, at the very least, the deal with MS appears done.

          • Smayo

            I know it comes on xbox, the reason everybody played it on the ps4 is because it’s the main developing platform this generation for CoD, doesn’t say jack about exclusivity for a certain platform.

            Be as it may, i could care less on which platform the DLC is coming first, haven’t bought it for the last 2 years and not planning to buy it this year…

          • Aceshigh87

            I never said it guaranteed exclusivity, I only said that it means the Xbox deal is done. They wouldn’t develop the game on PS4 if they had a deal with MS. It either means that the deal is now with Sony or there is no deal.

          • Smayo

            The deal would be done anyway regardless on which platform it is developed, the 3 year contract expired after AW, as of now nothing is certain about who gets what DLC wise, although I do agree that if the deal with MS is/was still intact, they wouldn’t show of the ps4 so openly.

    • ccrows

      I just hope that when they announce the Sony deal in the next few days, that this place doesn’t turn into an up for grabs console wars S*** Storm.

      I said it before and I’ll say it again, I hate that EITHER CONSOLE gets DLC early… ๐Ÿ™

  • Johnny

    All I see is an expanded Minimap and then the 3 kill streak icons from BO 2 on the right. There isn’t any bullet count or faction icon or team score anywhere. Not sure if its hardcore mode.

    http://i.imgur.com/jgv1gcq.png

    • imBATMAN

      wouldn’t hardcore mode remove the minimap?

  • Cosima McInnes

    If BO3 is available to play at E3 then surely it will be in beta stage … Or nah ?

    Also …. Mark my words – we will see bo3 at Microsoft’s conference. Absolutely guarantee it and if I’m wrong you can hold it against me ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Vahn said it will be playable, it’s at pre-alpha

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      It’ll be at the Sony conference.

      • Cosima McInnes

        Do you have a source or …. ?

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Yep.

          • Cosima McInnes

            Prove it ๐Ÿ™‚

          • spartanelite

            Where’s the proof?

        • Kobrah

          Did you have a source?

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Vahn said it’s in pre-alpha right now. They’ll probably announce the Beta release date at E3 (I’m guessing a month after E3).

  • ezskinsezlife

    i think the reason people are playing BO3 on ps4 is to get the best expirience but they are still going to partner up with microsoft

    • I think that it would be a bad advertisement for Microsoft if they renewed the contract and people were playing on PS4… I think it’s not something Microsoft would authorize Activision or Treyarch to do ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • supr squirrel

        I know they’ve been predicting that the DLC would switch over to Sony for a few years now, and hey, maybe it might. But I give you something to consider:

        Microsoft lost the DLC ‘war’ with Sony in regards to Destiny. Hell, some of the DLC could take up to a year to show up on the One. Having the CoD DLC a month early for the 360 and the One has been one of their ‘selling points’ for the last several years. That’s why I would suggest sitting back and waiting before celebrating (or moaning) about a shift in DLC. I just can’t see them letting the deal walk away. They’re too invested in it.

    Well it could be no more console exclusivity. I bet they are developing on ps4. Thats what i hope for. I bet its gonna be a ps4 title.

    • ccrows

      That would be great.

      Heck let season pass owners get stuff a week or 2 early if they wanna milk it…

      • Thatlazykid

        This would make season pass owners happy as well as Activision since more ppl might buy the season pass i believe :/

        • Smayo

          They play on ps4 which to me indicates it’s developed on the ps4 as their main platform, which is a logical thing because its the easier console to program for.

          but the fact that under (every) TV is an xbox one could hint that MS still secured the exclusivity deal, but that’s all speculation on my part ofcourse

  • ouu

    He is playing on a PS4 and not an Xbox one

    • ccrows

      Does it matter?

      Yes we know Sony is gonna get the DLC, it’s really not that big of a deal…

  • JoZer805g

    I just notice that the minimap has a field of view indicator just like Battlefield 4 haves. When aiming down sights or zooming in through a scope, the field of view indicator on the minimap closes in.

    • Kobrah

      I thought it was a compass

  • Glad the minimap is rectangle by default like in Ghosts. I hated having to use my second perk slot for it on every class

    In my opinion VSAT just makes killing too easy. Back in MW1 you had to know where enemy was by using your instincts. Not some stupid VSAT that shows live feed of enemy movements.

    And what comes to stopping enemy getting VSAT. In Black Ops 2 I am always in losing team I have 0.68 W/L ratio and below 1 K.D. because of some Faze wannabe quickscopers in objective modes. I have over 1 K.D and W/L ratio in all other Call of Duty titles. I can’t stop enemy VSAT by myself even if I try to. One reason is too slow TTK (I am used to original Modern Warfare series TTK).

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      If I go on a 10-15 killstreak, I should have something to reward me. The streak is already balanced. It doesn’t get kills for you.

  • Guywithbrains

    At least unlimited sprint is already confirmed. And sliding 15 feet.
