Responding to a comment about not adding prestiges after launch on Reddit, David Vonderhaar has stated that the team at Treyarch ‘are not fans of adding Prestige Levels after launch.’

Hi,

We are not fans of adding Prestige Levels after launch. We wanted Prestige to have an end goal and off ramp. It’s why we gave it a name (Master Prestige) and removed the level icon when you hit it.

We do think there is a room to do interesting things to highlight a Master Prestige player that keeps playing that is NOT adding more prestige levels.

It’s designed, but not implemented yet, and I don’t want to put my foot in my mouth in case it doesn’t happen for scope or schedule reasons.

This is in contrast to Sledgehammer Games; they launched Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare with 15 prestiges and in March, added 15 additional prestiges called “Grand Master Prestiges.” With Infinity Ward, for their older release, Modern Warfare 3, they added 10 additional prestiges after that title’s launch. They did not add more prestiges to Call of Duty: Ghosts, however.

Treyarch has not yet announced the final number of prestiges that will be in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

The third DLC pack for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Supremacy, is now available on PC and PlayStation Network for both PS4 and PS3 players. The new DLC pack brings four new multiplayer maps, including a remake of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s Highrise, and the all new Part 3: Carrier for the Exo Zombies mode.

Four new multiplayer maps:

  • Parliament: Docked on the River Thames, this military cargo ship delivers a view of the London cityscape along with a fast-paced combat experience. Mixed site-lines provide opportunities for all styles of play to dominate this medium-sized map. Players can take control of the map-based scorestreak to unleash a barrage of missiles that annihilate enemies.
  • Kremlin: Gamers must prepare for intense combat outside Russia’s presidential palace in the new map Kremlin, as they navigate the worn-torn buildings of Red Square in this medium-sized, three-lane map. Secure elevated positions to give the team a strategic advantage, or use exoskeleton capabilities to avoid being caught in the minefield that activates mid-match.
  • Compound: Players take combat preparation to the limit in an Atlas training facility hidden away in the Colorado wilderness, as they’ll have to be quick on the trigger in this small, symmetrical map, which funnels high-speed combat through tight corners to the main tower structures.
  • Skyrise: Players deploy to an Atlas Skyscraper overlooking the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. Based on the fan-favorite, Highrise, from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 by Infinity Ward, this map brings new exoskeleton mechanics to the classic multiplayer layout. Gamers must dominate the power positions in the center of this small-to-medium sized map to control the key navigation points.

NOTE: All four multiplayer maps will be featured in the Supremacy Exo Grapple Playlist, which will allow players to use the Exo Grapple ability that was introduced with Advanced Warfare’s Ascendance DLC pack.

Exo Zombies Part 3: 

  • Carrier: Following the end of the last episode, Infected, Bruce Campbell (Army of Darkness, Burn Notice) steps in and joins the battle-hardened cast of John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, RED, Burn After Reading), Bill Paxton (Aliens, Titanic, Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, Scream), and Jon Bernthal (Fury, The Wolf of Wall Street). InCarrier, the four are trapped on an Atlas aircraft carrier. Carrier features advanced new weaponry, enemy Atlas Strike teams, Sentinel support squads, and a host of new zombie enemies.

Advanced Warfare Supremacy DLC is now available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, and PC. The DLC pack costs $14.99 or is included with the Season Pass.

Dark Horse Comics and Activision have just announced a partnership to bring a prequel comic book for Call of Duty Black Ops 3 this November along side the game.  The comic book is being written by Larry Hama (G.I. Joe) and drawn by Marcelo Ferreira (Transformers, TMNT).

A special mini-comic preview edition will be made available for fans that stop by the Dark Horse Comics or Activision booth next week at Comic-Con.

“A prequel to the highly-anticipated game, the Call of Duty®: Black Ops III comic book series follows an elite group of soldiers as they wage a secret war across a futuristic war-torn world transformed by technology,” Dark Horse detailed in a press release. “In the bullet-ridden first issue, the team infiltrates Tashkent, Uzbekistan to take down a double agent . . . but as they close in, they uncover something much more sinister at hand.”
“A lot of the appeal of Call of Duty is in how it puts you directly in the action. That’s pretty difficult to replicate in a graphic story format, so the aim in a comic adaptation is to provide more of what you don’t get a lot of in the game,” Hama said. “We’re talking character development and back-story, and a more involved personal interaction between the characters. Also, it’s possible to really flesh out the story line, create running sub-plots, and explain technical details that aren’t that easy to convey in the game environment.”
