At E3 2018 Sony announced that PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) users are getting an additional game this month in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. It wasn't announced as a part of the PS Plus games for June making it an extra and welcome addition for many a PS Plus user. With Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 out later this year, it's a smart way for Sony and Activision to rope prospective consumers into the Black Ops universe. In addition to this, a host of remastered maps are coming to Black Ops 3 and Black Ops 4. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is available for PS Plus users from tonight until July 11.
If you pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 through PlayStation Store, Sony says you’ll get the Back in Black maps for Black Ops 3. Back in Black maps are immediately playable for Black Ops 3, and include fan-favorite maps – Jungle, Summit, Slums, and Firing Range – and they are available only for PS4 owners. This pre-order offer is open to all PS4 owners via PS Store.
Considering that developer Treyarch has a record of supporting its games for an extended period of time, there's more than enough content to bother with such as additions to its critically acclaimed Zombies mode, receiving a ton of maps from previous Call of Duty games such as World at War and Black Ops.
For what it's worth, Black Ops 3 is perhaps the most comprehensive Call of Duty game we've played in years. Buoyed by fantastic visuals and a steady frame rate, it's a gorgeous game that is fun to play. Whether you're a veteran of the series or a newcomer, there's more than enough content to warrant checking out Black Ops 3. More so that its now free. Here are the other PlayStation Plus games for June.
