If you just want to play some online shooting, love Black Ops 3 but are not interested in its single-player campaign and don’t mind having limited access to its multiplayer modes, Activision has an offer for you.
For $14.99 you can buy Black Ops 3 starter pack, exclusively available on Steam. The offer is limited and will be on sale until February 29.
If you choose to buy it, you’ll have access to ranked matches, arena, freerun, theater, and weapon paint shop. Other online mods, as well as the single-payer campaign, are not available.
In case you are still confused, here is the full list of modes that are NOT available:
- Zombies game mode
- Campaign game mode
- Ability to play in Multiplayer custom games
- Ability to Prestige (your level will be capped at 55 in the Starter Pack)
- Access to mod tools or modded content (once released)
- Access to unranked server browser (once released)
- Ability to Fresh Start your profile
- The ability to access Dead Ops Arcade II and Nightmares mode
Bear in mind that the level cap is set to level 55 and that you’ll be unable to reset your stats.
On the bright side, you’ll be able to play against owners of the full game and multiplayer content of the Black Ops 3’s Season pass will be available if you choose to buy Season Pass. Upgrade to full Black Ops 3 game is available at any time; the price of the full game will be lowered for the amount ($14.99) you gave for buying the Starter Pack.
