Yes, there won’t be a single player campaign included in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. If you’re anything like me it’s a little disappointing. That said, people who play it for the single player campaign are by far in the minority and the focus has shifted to their very popular base of multiplayer players. Last night we got a look at all the various modes we’ll get to enjoy online with friends and… I have to be honest… it’s looking a little exciting.
First up is the return of Zombies in the game. They released three unique trailers showing off Voyage of Despair, IX and Blood of the Dead and each come with their own bit of story, for those who need a reason to destroy zombies. Either way, get a look at what is on offer below:
Fans of the series will hear that the multiplayer component returned back to its modern warfare roots and that you won’t find any wall running and jumping anywhere in sight – yes, it’s boots on the ground. The focus shifted to your weapons by the inclusion of ‘operator mods’. For example, you might attach a suppressor to your gun that can inhibit enemy vision. Expect them to go to town with these mods and to bring that interesting new addition to the game. Healing will once again not be automatic and will require you to take the time to manually heal yourself, which can leave you open for a quick death, or a medic can assist you with that. There are more specialist skills in store, but for now just get a look at how good it’s looking once again:
Last up is the much anticipated (and worst kept secret) Battle Royale mode. It’s real and it’s looking much better than you might think. What the team have done is to create a huge map that includes all the popular landmarks from previous Black Ops titles, including beloved characters from the previous games that can drive ground, sea and air vehicles, on one big map. Welcome to the new mode – Blackout.
It might only include several online multiplayer components, but it’s surely going to please fans and looks great! PC gamers should be aware that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is going to be a Battle.net game, alongside Destiny 2, Overwatch and World of Warcraft.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launched on 12 October for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
