You can skip right to the end of the Black Ops 3 campaign

Black Ops 3 will let you skip missions to get to the end.

When Black Ops 3 releases this November, you will be able to do something you've never been able to do in any other Call of Duty game - you will be able to skip the campaign entirely.

Jason Blundell, the Director of the campaign and Zombies mode, said in an interview with Eurogamer that "it gives [players] the flexibility to consume the content how they want."

But what happens if people just play the end to spoil it? Well, Blundell continued his interview by comparing the game to the TV show House of Cards: 

"If you see the end you'll say, I need to understand this more. When Netflix released House of Cards and do all the episodes, does everyone just jump to the end and go and play the last episode? Sure, you can. But it's about the journey, though, right?"

I feel that this is a good move on Treyarch's part. People get to play the game how they want. I don't usually play through the campaign; I just go straight to multiplayer (with Black Ops I go to Zombies). This decision gives me the freedom to do what I want with the game. If I'm playing Black Ops at a friend's house and get through 6 campaign missions, I can go home on my account and skip those 6 missions to finish what I started.

Hopefully more developers will see what Treyarch is doing and follow along. Sure, you might get the ending spoiled, but if you haven't played through the game, you probably won't get it anyways.

What do you think of Treyarch's decision to let players skip the campaign? Will you still play it, even though you don't have to? Let me know in the comments!
