    Call of Duty: Black Ops III modding tools are coming in 2016 for the PC. Treyarch and Activision announced this in their recent blog post, which can be found here. PC modding has been a huge topic ever since it happened in the first couple Call of Duties years ago. Treyarch states that mod tools have been "one of the top requests" from players and are excited to be including it in the next Call of Duty for PC. Treyarch has big plans in mind for the PC edition of Black Ops III and some of these plans are:
    • Players will be able to create maps, game modes, and much more.
    • Treyarch will be including Unranked Dedicated Server Files with tools so players will be able to run servers with modded content anywhere they desire.
    • Treyarch will provide an Unranked Server Browser so players can easily find and join servers that contain modded content on them.
    • Closed Alpha will be available for this version. The targeted date will be somewhere in March 2016.
    These plans are currently unfinished and they could result in change as time goes on because of issues related to modding support. Treyarch does state that software development and others things could not always work out as planned. Sometimes features get dropped for bigger and better ideas as they try to find the best way to please their fans. Moving forward, Treyarch will share more details and information about the tools as we get closer to the closed beta.

    What do you think about PC modding in Black Ops III? Do you think Treyarch will be able to pull off these plans? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    I will mod the f*** out of this game.... Crates for cammo's? They also cost money... I don't think so.

      This will definitely add a lot of longevity to the game.

    DAMMIT! I just ordered it for the PS4 last night thinking it'd have more support and fun than the PC version, FML.

    I'll just find a crack when it's released I guess.

      ...cancel your order and git gud?

      Lol not a pc gamer here but since when were the console versions more fun?
    3. Stonerzard
      You can't cancel once you've paid for it on the PS Store. And it's so much more fun when I've actually got friends to play it with, and more often than not I'm playing splitscreen with a buddy/my bro.

    This would be amazing if it was going to be included on launch day I say this because waiting until the game as been for 4 months just to have a closed alpha is stupid, by the time it's officially released the 2016 COD will be out and BO3 will be nothing but a memory.

      Even if it were to be released in 2019 it's fine. AlienFreek01 is right, I still play CoD4 mods from time to time.
    3. AlienFreek01
      There wasn't any custon mods for cod 4 or waw on release... we could've not have had any (or very very few) mods/maps on bo3 like bo2 without them giving us the tools... Better late than never
    4. Stonerzard
      I only started playing CoD4/5 mods about 3 years ago, I think that speaks for itself, right?

    NUT NUT NUT NUT NUT!!!! This is officially going to be the best Call of Duty in a LONG LONG time! I'm extremely excited about this. I remember the WaW tools could compile ps3 and 360 map files too so hopefully they leave some stuff in again
