A new edition of Black Ops 3 has been announced – the Digital Deluxe Edition – which will include the game, season pass, and more content to be announced later for $99.99. The edition is now available for preorder digitally on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

If you preorder the Deluxe Edition digitally on any platform, you will  get beta access once the beta goes live.

The Call of Duty®: Black Ops III Digital Deluxe Edition includes the full base game, Season Pass & more digital content to be announced at a later date.

Call of Duty®: Black Ops III combines three unique game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer and Zombies, providing fans with the deepest and most ambitious Call of Duty ever. The Campaign has been designed as a co-op game that can be played with up to 4 players online or as a solo cinematic thrill-ride. Multiplayer will be the franchise’s deepest, most rewarding and most engaging to date, with new ways to rank up, customize, and gear up for battle. And Zombies delivers an all-new mind-blowing experience with its own dedicated narrative.

Pre-orders also get access to the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Multiplayer Beta*. *Beta launch date(s) TBD.

Check your platform’s store for more information.

  • blackburnt7

    hmm, maybe i will preorder the deluxe edition in psn store.

  • TheGamerBeast

    Keep up the great News Charlieintel… Probably Digital Deluxe Edition will be availalbe for pre-order on steam too when it goes live today

  • Elian22

    Is it only season pass?

    • TheGamerBeast

      yeah “Digital Deluxe Edition”

    • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

      Read the article…

      “more digital content to be announced at a later date”

      • Elian22


        • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

          your welcome

  • Eh, not for meh. Even with Treyarch making this one I dont like buying season passes anymore, I will wait until the games been out for a bit before making a decision on that.

  • KernosT

    The playtesting was done on PS4 and PC and also the specs have been revealed this early.I think that the partnership is now with Sony and they donot have crazy restrictions like MS on what to tell and what not.Or I am guessing DLC same time on all platforms.What do you guys think?

    • Tom aka TMC

      there would’ve been more advertisement if it was an exclusive for either console and the fact it was on ps4/pc which are both more powerful than PC just means that there is no exclusivity

      • KernosT

        Maybe sony is waiting.Or else like you said,no exclusivity.That is what I want.Everyone should be able to have a fair chance at completing the easter egg first XDD.

        • Tom aka TMC

          also Playstation never uploaded the reveal trailer where as xbox did

          • Tom aka tmc is wrong


        • MMninja12

          I much rather prefer this but if there has to be exclusivity PS4!

          • Cytozen

            If exclusivity exists, it will be PS4, but likely it will be even grounds for everyone. If Sony can secure the deal though, all the remaining 360 players and ps3 players that are still trying to decide which system they’re going to get, its probably gonna be PS4 now.

          • Troy Stevens Jr

            They better choose Ps4 unless they wanna wait 30 days for dlc for each CoD game this Generation

        • Troy Stevens Jr

          Hell no past some odd years us PlayStation owners had to wait so now ita Xbox owners turn

      • Just for clarification, The PS4 and PC (computer) are both more powerful than the PC? did you mean the PS4 and PC are both more powerful than the Xbone, or the PS4 and Xbone are both more powerful than the PC (computer)? I ask because there are too many people that are mis-informed about consoles and computers. (Thinking a console is more powerful than a dedicated gaming PC……PC’s are used to create games for the consoles……) [Also just incase people haven’t realized yet, the PS4 doesn’t have DDR 5 ram, it has GDDR5 ram, which gaming PC’s have had for a while now, it’s just glorified DDR 3 ram but it’s dedicated to the GPU….]

        • Nicolò Aldrovandi

          Lolwut? GDDR5 is not just gloryfied DDR3 at all, totally different speeds, latencies, TDPs…

          • M8hundred M8eighty M8

            Both have pro’s and cons but overall xbox and ps4 have similar specs. xbox has some pieces of hardware better while ps4 does others. ps4 might be capable of getting a few more fps but it’s such a little difference specs shouldn’t be the reason you choose a console. Game’s and friends is why you should choose a console. and PC is more powerful than both.

          • Nicolò Aldrovandi

            I know that PCs can be much more powerful than consoles, what are you trying to teach me?
            And similar specs my ass. PS4 has a better gpu and better ram. X1’s esram is not enough to make up for the difference between DDR3 and GDDR5.

          • Wrong

            first they do have similar specs you fanboy ps4’s gpu is slightly better than the one xbox has while X box has a slightly better cpu. I agree that both have their pros and cons like someone else said. Can’t we just get along? End the console war maybe?

          • Nicolò Aldrovandi

            The cpu difference is marginal, while the gpu difference is very significant considering that consoles primarily rely on their gpus, which are by far the most powerful hardware component they have. Pair that with GDDR5 ram, and the game is over. I’m not a console fanboy, nor a flamer (case in point, i’ve been saving 1500€ to buy a PC), I’m just willing to ACCEPT REALITY. it’s a plain fact that ps4’s hardware is more powerful.

      • Weapon Marks

        PC is more powerful than consoles M8

        • olekgamma

          Not for the same price ‘m8’. Please try to build a PC as powerful as the PS4 or the XbOne (£289.99 on Amazon as of 26/05/2015)-PS4 (£269.49 on Amazon as of 26/05/2015)-XB1

          • Cam

            That’s not hard to do..

          • olekgamma

            You can’t build a desktop for the price of £300 that will match the PS4 performance wise lmao

          • Cam

            Are you sure? Cause I just did: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/rVwct6

          • olekgamma

            Question 1: How much does a Blu-Ray drive cost?
            Question 2: How big is the desktop you’re building?

          • Cam

            Answer 1: you don’t need a blu Ray drive because no one uses discs to play games anymore.
            Answer 2: that’s another great thing about pc’s, you can make them as big or as little as you want depending on the case… You’d just have to get a mini itx motherboard

    • Daniel M

      I think it’s going to be fair on all platforms which is great!

      • Troy Stevens Jr

        Definitely Playstation 1300day Exclusivity, finally now all the Xbox Youtube Streamer can have to go buy 2 systems if they wanna keep up with the competition

    • I think, and hope, dlc comes out at the same time for everyone.

    • TheGamerBeast

      IF this is really true the MS exclusivity is no more then probably that’s going to be the BEST News i have ever heard in a COD game… cz god i hate the xbox DLC first thing even though i pay like xbox owners pay

      • Daniel M

        Did you see the destiny DLC exclusive deal with sony, we get DLC 1 whole year later… 1 month is nothing compared to that.

        • RdJokr

          Which is why it’s probably the best to just go with “no exclusivity”. Every platform should get DLC on the same date, no excuses.

          • TheGamerBeast

            exactly i don’t care about PS4 or sony i just don’t want any exclusivity.. like he said DLC should be release on the same date on every platform

        • Yeah but that 1 month thing has been happening for years

        • MMninja12

          Its like a few guns a map and a strike its not a whole DLC retard so before u complain at least know what yr complaining about

          • Yunus Emre Kara

            They took out half the doc for us and those “2 guns” are really good. Yes and 1 strike makes a distance so we have more variety but instead half a dlc

        • John

          That because destiny was meant to be exclusive to playstation but xbox users cried out to bungie to make it on X box aswel so the deal was made they get the content a year later

          • Yunus Emre Kara

            And you are wrong it was supposed to be multiplatform but Sony rained lots of money on Activision to get them full dlc while we get half.

        • STEALTHD3M0N

          How are two guns a dlc???

        • Yankeephil

          You think that’s bad, Ubisoft games on Sony systems get exclusive DLC for eternity. There are DLC’s on assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell games that will never get released for XBox.

    • bigb22

      well Activision wasn’t happy with Microsoft going exclusive with Titanfall but we shall see. With it being exclusive to the XB1, PS4 and PC you could see it flip to Sony as there are more PS4’s in households than Xbox1

    • Best_Guest

      minimum 4wks what for xbox flops.

    • Eli Caldwell

      It’s not going to activisison has the deal with Microsoft we still get everything first no matter the studio

      • ReZNeK

        What they are saying is, that the deal went to Sony instead of Microsoft, who bids more gets the deal, + all cods studios are property of Activision, therefore it’s being controlled by Activision, no studios do anything without Activision giving the order in some form

        • Yunus Emre Kara

          Yes that’s true but they have an ongoing contract so none can back out on till end of it and they extended the contract two years ago.

    • The Truth without The Pretence

      I think:

      Xbox – DLC will release at the same time guys. Don’t worry buddies! FLASHBACK. *I’ve seen the comments when DLC was exclusively delayed. It ain’t a pretty sight.*

      PS4 – Oh boy. I’m positive DLC will be released same time on all platforms. Good on ya MS & Sony.

      *secretly* screw you XB guys, I’m getting my DLC early this year!

    • MMninja12

      okay please answer my question on who said this cuz i really wanna belive you but i don’t see a video and I’m on PS4 so i would LOVE this

      • KernosT

        Driftor confirmed that all playtesting was done on PS4 and PC.And also all the trailers were also posted by Sony.And also the PC specs were revealed this early.Last time due to MS’s contract(I think),the PC details were not given out until like a week or 2 before release.

    • wrong

      No there deal is still going so it won’t change for a long time as they said. They didn’t announce X box’s graphics because they want to spend time to achieve 1080p unlike other deva that rush the Xb1 version and give it a lower res.

    • Kyle Jacobs

      Is there going to be the hardened edition on last gen consoles?

  • I’m gonna wait for the Prestige Edition 🙂

    • Bruce Wayne

      Same here hopefully it comes with some good stuff

      • zombiefreak935

        Batman? XD

    • zombiefreak935

      All new attachable arm!

  • lunator100hd .

    only idiots preorder the game that early………

    • Osmosis

      Only idiots make such claims………

      • KernosT

        No he is right,only idiots pre order the game.You are giving yourself away to carefully planned marketing strategies.Until I play it at a gaming convention,I will not even bother pre ordering it.

        • Stefan Lang

          But everyone can’t go to a convention. That’s why they’re preordering to play the beta. They can easily cancel the preorder when the beta is over.

          • JOEY MURKEM

            VERY TRUE

          • TheDemonOfHate

            Boii you is smart!

        • ScOott

          Your the only idiot, for most people the only way they get to play the game early is through pre order … Figure that one out ..

      • lunator100hd .

        accept the truth kid

    • lunatorisbroke

      I bet you were the smartest kid in ur class what a fool

    • Daniel

      I dont care about the game, it has zombies Im buying it

  • I’m just gonna wait it out… See if it’s worth the pre-order…

    • ScOott

      It’s worth the pre order just to play the beta ?

      • LovekillerX

        Yep and if you don’t like it cancel your pre-order.

        • ScOott

          Exactly… What you think so far about bo3 ? .. I’m really looking forward to E3 and the beta now … I have spent my working day hiding watching videos on bo3!

          • Guywithbrains

            Well I can answer this too. I think it looked slightly different in a good way than usual Call of Duty game we get. It sounds really fun because of these specialists. Destiny meets Titanfall one could say (note: not saying this copy pasted things from these games).

            As I have already said I will pre-order just to get beta access. Of course normal edition.

          • ScOott

            Yh now I’ve seen videos explaining everything I’m happy about multiplayer .. The one thing I want to know is about campagin tho, I’ve only been playing campagin since ghosts … N want to know if il be able to play the campagin without playing the first two … Or if il have no idea what people are talking about .. How’s the previous campaigns been easy to pick up, or have you had to have played all of them ? ..

          • Guywithbrains

            Well I play mostly multiplayer but I have played every campaign since Call of Duty 4 except Black Ops 1. That one I have watched from Youtube though. But anyway, so far looks like Black Ops 3 has a lot of new characters… I don’t know if anyone from Black Ops 2 will return in main role.

            But for Black Ops 3 I would play through Black Ops 2. Not sure if the story is going to have something Black Ops 1 related. That we will see when story trailer comes.

          • ScOott

            But to understand black ops 2 dont u have to play black ops one ? …

          • Guywithbrains

            I didn’t play but I watched it from Youtube. But you will always get the best experience if you know all about story of Black Ops games which means also playing through Black Ops 1. 🙂

          • ScOott

            Lol god dam it… I’m just going to Have to watch it all on YouTube … At least I’ve got the rest of my week planned at work now … More hiding and watching videos about black ops (sigh)

          • Kit

            Yeah I suggest playing BO1’s story before BO2, the story’ll be great if you play it in the right order. Plus I doubt any characters for the previous two games will return in BO3, probably just David Mason’s son, but maybe in some flash backs we’ll see the old characters.

          • LovekillerX

            It looks really promising to be honest. I’m going to pre-order it so I can participate in beta!

      • I guess I might as well…

  • Hopefully the hardened edition comes with a season pass too. I was pissed when I got it and there’s was no season pass in it, just a coin with a code for a camo, theme and two maps, which one of them became free overtime.

    • zombiefreak935

      Hardened does not come with the season pass. You either pay the $120 for the delux game/season pass/more. Or buy the game and season pass.

      • Damn only treyarch does this, I got the hardened edition for every cod after mw3 and everyone but bo2 comes with a season pass.

  • Lightfoot

    I’d only purchase the season pass for the zombies content. Don’t know if anyone else agrees but I never find the DLC MP maps to be better than the original on disc ones. They never play as well either. Think my favourite DLC map would have to be Terminal on MW3 and that was free so I mean, says it all really in my opinion.

    • FazalGaming

      Terminal was actually in MW2 but was brought over to MW3. But yeah Terminal was an on disc map for MW2.

      • Lightfoot

        I know it was, that’s why I think I liked it, because it was an original map, one of IW’s best to be honest.

  • Kenny

    Is it just me or is CI biased towards PS? They report “PS4 being listed first on the leaked poster ” and “PlayStation uploads the teaser one hour before Xbox”. Yet they dont report the reveal trailer switching up the order of the list of platforms (and listing X1 first) or Sony not uploading the reveal trailer until 6 hours ago (and only on PlayStation Europe). If you are going to report little things that probably have no meaning, you might as well give the whole story. After all, you are supposed to give the while story and not be biased to where certain facts are twisted and/or excluded if you are a news website. I’m sure there is an explanation for this and I would love to hear it.


      because they likely know more

    • O yes

      Because it quite normal for shitbox to be exclusive to COD.
      But even the slightest hope that there’s no contract or if Ps4 signed a new contract… Then that’s news.
      It’s unusual that PlayStation is getting this much attention.

    • Cytozen

      The game is being showcased on PS4, probably because that’s the system they’re basing their standards on now that their exclusivity deal with microsoft has ended, and they know that the PS has notably more power than the Xbox and many more consoles sold, so a much larger market to cater to. If the game is being showcased on your system, would you be more likely to buy it there? Yeah… psychology of a gamer.

  • zombiefreak935

    All new pc exclusive. jk

  • New update on AW, but I can’t find any patch notes

    • zack

      Asm1 now has 35 bullets and 52 with extended mags. Still melts. Also the bal is still unstoppable.

    • ScOott

      Because no one cares anymore :-p

    • _SIM_

      OMG the mk14 got a buff

  • SDrops

    I am from Germany we have a magazine here with a reporter that went to the event of Treyarch. In an interview he said that they first played on X1 then saw/played it on the PS4 and at last they were shown a 4K PC version. So I think we should rethink/ not make any asumptions at this point 🙂

    EDIT: The magazine is called GameStar and here is the interview if you want to watch it (in german tho :/ ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1cbFWGFMtE

  • reamerb .

    What’s the price?

  • Megaqwerty

    Hey, the description says only 2-12 network players! Hopefully, this is in error and we still have Ground War (and also 18 man private match shenanigans).

  • *waits for Prestige Edition*

    • Yunus Emre Kara

      *Also waits for prestige edition*

  • a4getmenot

    I love how now that there’s a chance the Dlc may come out on Sony platform first rather than Microsoft, people are “hoping” they release on the same time for every platform.

  • sup bro

    Look at the endings of both trailers on the xbox and PlayStation youtube channels. The PlayStation one is different to the xbox video. Could this indicate anything ?

    • Kobrah

      What do you mean? How are they different?
      (Haven’t watched both)

      • sup bro

        Its hard to explain. You have to watch botg of them. Stop both videos on the beta area and you will notice that the ps4 has more writing, all most like how xbox call of duty videos from the past tell you that its exclusive. Watch them and your see what im saying.

  • ColonelBazz

    I think getting dlc early on a platform compared to others should not excist on any game. I hate it when companies are giving so much money just to get that exclusivity, while there are so many other things they could do with that money. Like bringing new features to the platform or how about getting a better protection against hackers?

    • Jesús

      good point

  • iTrexX

    Cammo, advanced supplies and a THEME are also confirmed for PS4.

    • Ryumoau

      nice! i’d love to have a ps4 BO3 theme. 🙂

  • Ryumoau

    i’m intrigued by the idea that there will be more digital content announced later. I’ve already preordered the retail disk version though so i’m hoping to hear about a retail version of this same thing later on. Maybe a special prestige edition or something.

    Hopefully it won’t cost more than $99. I don’t care about any statues or remote controlled toy vehicles, i just want all ingame content. Maybe addtional campaign missions or exclusive gun camos.

  • Daniel

    I just hope they remaster all zombie maps


    How much is the harden edition going to cost? I know for bo2 it was $80. I hope its about that much this time or $100 if it comes with the season pass.

    • dylan

      still $80 like in bo2

  • UpRiftCOD

    I would buy the season pass if you had an option to turn off the new maps in multiplayer. I tend to enjoy the basic maps anyway. Other then that the zombies levels are tempting as well. This is why I like playing on PlayStation because I’m forced to wait a month.

  • Leo Acosta

    I preordered the deluxe edition for xbox1 and I didn’t get no camo or nothing!

  • Pandachoko

    Hopefully will they make a edition with cool gadgets like they did with the Care Package with BO2. A new drone could be nice

  • David Vondehaar

    Call of Duty exclusivity deal is moving over to Sony Entertainment Network.

  • jimmy

    Be cool if we got cool real life gadgets with CoD like we used to. RC XD, Quadcopter, Night Vision Optic now everything is just digital download stuff.

  • cbns007

    Question from a Canadian. What is the price difference between Advanced Warfare and BO3 for Americans, and other countries?
    AW regular was $70 here ($69.99) and the Digital Pro version was $109.
    B03 is $80, and deluxe is $115.

    • ben wills

      They don’t have a difference. We’re pretty much just getting buttfucked.

  • Bryan Cooper

    so if i pre order the 60 i should still get my camo for aw right?

  • Bryan Cooper

    because i did and i dont have any camo

  • Diablorosso

    will the Digital deluxe version be replacing the Hardened edition ?

    • Yunus Emre Kara

      no hardened is for physical this be digital

  • CookieChairman

    Will the campaign be playable in offline splitscreen co-op?

  • Kody

    So if you preorder this digital deluxe pack, will it start downloading the full game right away? Or is it a pre order for when you can predownload?

    • dylan

      you can download the game as soon as you get it but cant play it till 12:01 pm on the release date

  • Padpaw22 .

    To anyone that actually pre orders based on what Activision tells you before they even have a working product outside of what is designed to look like in game footage when generally what happens in their trailers never happens in game. You should probably think about their past products when the hype fails badly to meet the games reality. maybe save your money until someone that is not profitting from the game sales reviews it

  • anonymous

    See I am just like a lot of you. I don’t like the exo-suits. I want to go back to the run around shooting kind of game. The whole jumping behind someone when you are going into a fire fight is just stupid I hope the make a mode that you don’t have to use exo-suits or have it as a kill streak.

  • Victor Gomez

    why do i not get the bo3 camo in aw even though i pre-ordered the deluxe edition for bo3
