Call of Duty: Blacks Op III Multiplayer Starter Pack Free This Weekend

Posted on February 27, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Black Ops III

Activision Publishing has provided its’ recently released Black Ops III Multiplayer Starter Pack for free on Steam this weekend. The Multiplayer Starter Pack includes the complete Black Ops III multiplayer experience up to level 55. While it includes all of the operator / weapon / perk unlocks included up until that level it does not include the ability to prestige or access Custom Games or the popular Zombies mode.

Alongside the free weekend of Blacks Ops III multiplayer time Activision is also providing players with double XP for the entire weekend as a nice little leveling bonus.

The Starter Edition will only be available until the end of this month and currently costs $18.99 CDN. To be honest I think this is a great way for casual COD fans like myself to enjoy the core multiplayer experience while it is still quite popular without making a full $90 CDN investment. To be honest I never really play the Zombies mode and add-on DLCs are usually hit or miss with me. The Starter Edition is also compatible with any upcoming DLC.

Here’s the full announcement from the Blacks Ops III Steam Community:

The Multiplayer Starter Pack is free to try from 10AM PST on Thursday, 2/25 to 1PM PST on Sunday, 2/28.

Pick up the full game on sale this weekend also, including a 33% discount on the Black Ops 3 standard edition and 20% off the Digital Deluxe edition. Those that already own the Multiplayer Starter Pack can also upgrade to the full game at a discount. Sale ends Monday 2/28 at 10AM PST.

On top of all this, Double XP starts tomorrow, Friday, 2/26 at 10AM PST and ends Monday, 2/29 at 10AM PST.
