Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Nightmares Campaign Mode Confirmed

November 6, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

With Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 now available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC (our review), Activision and developer Treyarch have confirmed the rumored Nightmares mode:

Lastly, no Black Ops game would be complete without some surprises for the fans. Players that complete the Call of Duty: Black Ops III campaign can access the heavily-rumored “Nightmares” mode, and play the campaign in an entirely new way, with Zombies!

On top of Nightmares mode, they also confirmed Dead Ops Arcade, which you can watch gameplay of over here:

Players who explore the Safe House could potentially gain access to the “Dead Ops Arcade” easter egg, a bonus mode sure to delight fans of the golden age of video games. These two pieces of bonus content are sure to keep fans entertained well beyond the studio’s signature three-games-in-one offering, delivering the most robust Call of Duty in franchise history with Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Unfortunately, Nightmares campaign mode, Safe House, and Dead Ops Arcade are only available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, as the PS3 and 360 versions don’t include a campaign.

Adam Boyes, VP of Publisher and Developer Relations at Sony Computer Entertainment America, then talked about the deal with Activision:

This is a historic partnership that makes PlayStation the best place to play Call of Duty. The massive reception to the game’s multiplayer beta only a few months ago demonstrated the huge appetite our fans have for this franchise and the anticipation for Black Ops III. This is the game our fans want, and we’re proud to welcome Call of Duty to its new home on PlayStation 4.

As for the Season Pass, DLC map packs will be available first on PS4 for 30 days, before arriving on Xbox One and PC. Activision is unsure about the release timing for map packs on PS3/Xbox 360.

If you’re wondering about the two updates for Black Ops 3 on PS4 totaling 2.7GB, they both carry the same patch note: “Security and stability fixes.”
