Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Loyalty Program Announced, New “Free Run” Game Mode Revealed

October 16, 2015 Written by Alex Co

Revealed today during Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 live-stream is a new Black Ops 3 game mode called “Free Run.”

With Black Ops 3 offering new ways to move around the environment, Free Run is essentially a mode where players can test their mettle when it comes to wall running, sliding, and just using Black Ops 3’s new movement system. To make it more exciting, there will be a leaderboards system where players can see the best times in any given course. You can watch the Free Run mode in the live-stream archive video above (it starts around the 16:00 mark).

Aside from that, a new Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 “Loyalty Program” has been announced, too. For people who reached certain levels in Black Ops 2, Ghosts or Advanced Warfare, you’ll get corresponding in-game rewards depending on the level you reached in one of those games. Note that the Loyalty Personalization Pack is only available to PC and now-gen (PS4 and Xbox One) players.

Full details, as well as the FAQ can be read below.

As a thank you to our loyal fans of Call of Duty, Treyarch has created the Loyalty Personalization Pack.  Players that have reached the below levels and linked all their accounts by November 5, 2015, will receive these in-game items in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3*.
