Call of Duty: Black Ops III PC to Support Mapping and Modding Tools

Closed Alpha targeted for March.

Treyarch just announced some rather interesting news: The PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops III will feature modding and mapping tools.

These new features will enable players to create their own maps and game modes, and "will include unranked dedicated server files with the tools so you can run servers with modded content anywhere you choose." Treyarch also intend to provide an unranked server browser so that players who want to sample modded games can easily find servers with this kind of content.

The initial target date for closed Alpha is March 2016, but there is currently no announcement regarding Open Beta. On Treyarch's blog, Director of Development Cesar Stastny said, "There is much more news to come including updates on Open Beta timing. In order to keep you informed, we’ll periodically publish developer blog posts to share our progress with our fans. Stay tuned to the Treyarch blog for more information. And yes, this is for real."

That's pretty interesting news, and we're very interested to see exactly how much you'll be able to mod the game. We'll bring you an updates when we know more. In the meantime, here's the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops III trailer.
