Activision Formally Launches Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Activision Formally Launches Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

The new take on the Zombie mode isn't the only new thing coming with Call of Duty Black Ops 4, with the Battle Royale genre getting a new player in the form of Blackout.

Featuring the largest map ever built in Call of Duty - 1,500 times bigger than Nuketown - Blackout thrusts players into a collision course as they play as classic characters spanning the history of the Black Ops series including the original Call of Duty Zombies Origins cast.

Battle royale games have revolutionised the first-person shooter genre over the last few years, and feature a large amount of players - normally 100 - entering into combat that is won when just one victor, or winning team, is left alive.

All in all, the experience should be familiar and convenient enough for all players - but again, Black Ops 4 will not be releasing on Steam.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be the first in the Black Ops series that doesn't appear to have a story-driven campaign, which some people will see as a curious sacrifice in order to make room for a supremely upscale response to the Fortnite craze.

Activision didn't stop with mere hardware support for the next entry in the Black Ops series, though. Black Ops 4 goes deeper than ever before into the fiction of multiplayer, where players will explore the world of Specialists - who they are, why they exist, and what battles they fight together - while mastering their gameplay through solo and multiplayer combat experiences.

"Black Ops 4 doesn't have a traditional campaign", said Treyarch boss Mark Lamia. It seems like the folks who are in charge of Black Ops 4 made a decision to rip a page out of Overwatch's book and include special abilities which players can use to synergize in order to dominate their foes. This means that this will be the first Call of Duty to leave out campaign. This year's Call of Duty will have a bigger focus on zombies, in addition to a new Battle Royale mode called "Blackout".

In the introduction we learned about changes to weapons, specialists are back with loads of new abilities and you now have to heal your character in the game instead of it automatically happening. However, an enterprising Reddit user took the time to count the little dots on the simulated map from the Black Ops 4 trailer and counted 140 players.

"[The single player mode] is only missing at this moment in time" explained Yale Miller, Senior Producer at Treyarch in an interview with Daily Star Online at the Community Day reveal event in Los Angeles.

Developer Treyarch has also - per rumours - ditched the single player component for Black Ops 4. Whether you are excited for it or not, it will be interesting to see how Call of Duty's first attempt at a battle royale mode works.

It will be fully integrated with Battle.net's social mechanics, and players will even be able to talk to each other across various games. We've always wanted to celebrate our community, especially how you play the game with friends. With Black Ops 4 though, I feel the Treyarch is really trying for something new and I may have to just shut up and give it a chance.
