  • Written by Gamespot

Like with any big gaming release, there are a lot of options for how and where you can purchase the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Here's a list to help you sort it all out.

Black Ops 3 launches on November 6 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

The Bonuses

Nuk3town Multiplayer Map

All pre-orders for Black Ops 3 (PS4, Xbox One, and PC) will include access to the Nuk3town multiplayer map, a new version of the popular, recurring Nuketown map. The Nuk3town map will not be available for PS3/Xbox 360 versions of the game.

Best Buy

In addition to the potential 20% discount if you're a Best Buy Gamers Club member, anyone who pre-orders will receive a $10 Gift Card.

Microsoft Store

Purchasing through Microsoft's online store gets you a $10 Xbox gift card as a digital code, which will be shipped within 10 days after the game's release.


In addition to a double-sided poster for all pre-orders, GameStop also has an exclusive on the Hardened edition of the game. This version comes with a Steelbook case, limited edition art cards, two personalization packs (Cyborg and Weaponized 115), and "The Giant" in-game Bonus Zombies map.


Orders from Steam will net you a "personalization pack and two Advanced Supply Drops for use in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare."

The Versions

Black Ops 3 Special Edition PS4

Customized 1TB PS4 and one customized DualShock 4 wireless controller inspired by the game. Also includes a physical copy of Black Ops III and a digital voucher for the Nuk3town Bonus Map.

Digital Deluxe Edition

Get a download version of the game, a Season Pass, and more digital content to be announced at a later date.

Juggernog Edition

This version is already sold out, but you might be able to find it on the aftermarket. The Juggernog edition comes with a fully functional mini-fridge, which is modeled after the in-game Perk-a-Cola machine. The set also includes a coaster set featuring Juggernog Soda, Revive! Soda, Speed Cola Soda, and Double Tab Root Beer emblems.

Naturally, you also get access to the Season Pass, "The Giant" map, and the classic "Der Riese" Zombies map, which picks up the Zombies story with Dempsey, Nikolai, Richtofen, and Takeo where Origins left off.
