Today’s live stream revealing Call of Duty Black Ops 4 finally showed what’s in store for this latest game in the series which is due for release this October.
The game is set in a narrative world between Black Ops 2 and Black Ops 3 with grounded combat and tight gunplay in a tactical team experience. It’s 100% boots on the ground with no fancy trickery such as wall running. Let’s cut the bullshit though because there is a battle royale mode and of course zombies.
The battle royale mode will feature land, sea, and air vehicles and it’s the biggest map ever made, about 1500 time larger than Nuketown. Maps, weapons, and gear from the BLOPS series are being brought together to in what sounds like a bit of a mash-up.
The zombie mode is different this time however as it comes with a story where players will be traveling through time as you can see in the trailers below which show the Titanic and ancient Rome. These campaigns can be tweaked with Mutations where players can change elements of the gameplay. Players will also be able to add bots to the co-op play to make up the numbers.
PC players will be catered for with dedicated servers, as much customisation as possible, uncapped framerates, 4K and ultrawide monitor support, HDR, and scalability to cater for as many systems as possible. See the last trailer below for the PC specific features.
The game will also be launching on Battle.Net and not Steam as Activision start consolidating their PC releases onto Blizzard’s platform.
That’s pretty much it for now but there are a few trailers to get through so hop to it.
