Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 Is Getting New 'Realistic' Difficulty Mode

By: Dustin Granberry

A trophy list published by Exophase for Black Ops 3 reveals a new difficulty setting called "Realistic," a punishing mode that appears to be the game's new hardest difficulty.

In previous Call of Duty games, there have always been four difficulties to choose from: Recruit, Regular, Hardened, and Veteran. This marks the first time the franchise has ever added a difficulty higher than veteran.


The trophy list also revealed that the Dead Ops Arcade mini-game will make a return from the original Black Ops. Be sure to check out the full list of trophies if you'd like a better idea of what you're in for when the game launches, though be warned, the list could contain minor spoilers for the campaign and zombies.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 arrives on November 6th for all platforms, though we should mention PS3 and Xbox 360 copies of the game will not feature a campaign, only zombies and multiplayer.
