So, you haven't played Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 but you don't want to throw down $60 for an online shooter that you might not enjoy. Activision has you covered with the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Multiplayer Starter Pack -- it's $15 on Steam and includes access to public ranked multiplayer matches, the Weapon Paint Shop, Gunsmith customization system, Black Market trading post, and Arena, Free Run and Theater modes. The pack is available from February 16th to the 29th.

If you end up digging the $15 demo, the full game will still cost a total of $60, at least. There are two "upgrade" options that net the complete Black Ops 3 experience: The standard upgrade is $45 and the Digital Deluxe version is $85 (it includes the game's Season Pass of add-on content).

Keep in mind that the Multiplayer Starter Pack does not feature Zombies mode, the main campaign, access to custom multiplayer games or the ability to level up past 55. See the complete list of not included features below.
