If you're only interested in Call of Duty: Black Ops III's multiplayer mode and want to play on PC, Activision has a new offering for you. A new, multiplayer-only version of the shooter launched today on Steam for $15.
Dubbed the Black Ops III Multiplayer Starter Pack, the game lets you play online multiplayer and access features like the Weapon Paint Shop, Gunsmith, Arena, Freerun, Theater, and the Black Market microtransaction store. What's missing is the campaign and Zombies mode, while you also cannot advance past level 55 and "Prestige," if that's what you're interested in.
Starter Pack players can purchase Black Ops III DLC pass content, but will only have access to multiplayer maps, and not anything for Zombies.
You can upgrade to the full version of Black Ops III (standard or deluxe) whenever you want. The $15 you paid for the Starter Pack will be automatically deducted, bringing the price down to $45.
The Starter Pack is available only on PC and will be sold until February 29. Activision did not say if it plans to release a similar offering for the console versions of Black Ops III. GameSpot has followed up with Activision in an attempt to get more details.
For now, you can read this Starter Pack FAQ on Activision's website to learn more.
