Black Ops 3 Zombies Maps Are Now Available To Buy Individually

Coming up on three years after Call of Duty: Black Ops III‘s release in 2015, publisher Activision continues to support the popular shooter. After releasing a surprise new map and mode, the company has announced that all of the game’s Zombies maps can now be purchased individually on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Support for individual purchases will be added to PC soon.

As explained by CharlieIntel, the maps cost $8 each (there are four in all), and they also come with 5 vials of Liquid Divinium per map. Previously, you had to buy entire DLC packs, so this is a nice option to have if you’re after one particular map or another.

The next Call of Duty game is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which is in development at Black Ops creator Treyarch. The game is due out on October 12, which is a month earlier than normal for the Call of Duty series. That timing may have something to do with Red Dead Redemption 2, which arrives on October 28 and is expected to be one of the biggest games of the year.

All the times Cambridge Analytica gave brazenly contradictory accounts of its murky work on Brexit

  • The Facebook data scandal has all-but confirmed Cambridge Analytica’s shadowy role in the US election, but its involvement in Brexit is even more murky.
  • The company repeatedly claimed it worked with Leave.EU, only to later completely deny any collaboration with Nigel Farage’s Brexit campaign group.
  • Leave.EU executives have also contradicted themselves on the role Cambridge Analytica played in helping it influence voters in Britain.

The Facebook data scandal all-but confirmed a long-held suspicion that Cambridge Analytica (CA) used online voter profiling techniques that may have helped swing the 2016 US election in favour of Donald Trump.

But while questions about CA’s shadowy work in American democracy are being bottomed out, many still linger about the company’s involvement in the UK’s historic vote to leave the European Union.

Nintendo Switch Might Be The Best-Selling Console Ever In The US

Many can probably agree that the Nintendo Switch is seeing the success that its predecessor, the Wii U, never did. The console is regarded as the fastest-selling console ever in the US, managed to outsell both the PS4 and Xbox One in some months, and to top it off, even beat its predecessor’s lifetime sales within its first year.

Now according to data released by the NPD Group, it appears that the Nintendo Switch could very well be considered the best-selling console ever in the US. However we should point out a caveat to this claim and that is the NPD is basing this on first year sales alone. We’re not talking about total sales, but rather this is based on what each console managed to sell within its first year of release.

According to the NPD, the Switch has reached the “highest installed base for a console platform in history.” To give you guys some context, based on Nintendo’s own data from back in December 2017, the Switch has sold about 15 million units which means that by now that number has probably increased somewhat.

Bringing it back down to reality, February 2018 was Sony’s month as the console managed to be the best-selling console for the month and so far appears to be the best-selling console for the year. That being said, Nintendo does have several games up their sleeves that will no doubt drive sales even further, such as Super Smash Bros. and the upcoming Pokemon RPG.
