Everything We Know About Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4

Activision finally announced details for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at a big reveal event on May 17. There will also be a new Zombie mode called Zombie Rush which will provide a new challenge to veterans of the games.

Today, COGconnected was lucky enough to attend the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 community reveal event. A total of three Zombies experiences will be included with the game at launch, which is scheduled for October 12 on the three major platforms: PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Second, Activision is taking a second bit of my advice and capitalizing on the success of games like Fortnite and Player Unknown's Battlegrounds: Black Ops 4 will include a "Battle Royale" mode called Blackout. Activision is wading into the battle royale craze that is sweeping the industry with the new Blackout mode.

Call of Duty games have typically offered action packed single player campaigns in the past but Black Ops 4 will be the first game in the long running series to ditch it entirely.

Zombies mode will also look significantly different, with a whole bunch of custom options and modes as well as what appear to be mini-campaigns with a variety of tones. That's it. Battle Royale is a fad and the Black Ops 4 battle royale mode is a mistake.

It was only a matter of time until Call of Duty got in on the Battle Royale trend. These settings constitute the three launch-day zombie modes: IX, Voyage of Despair, and Blood of the Dead (respectively). We know there is no jet pack or boost jumping, but you can still slide. You can check out more in the several trailers posted down below. Even zombies are coming to the game mode.

Tencent Sees Profit Increase of 61% Thanks to Games Business
Net profits increased 65% year-on-year to reach $3.82 billion on revenues of $11.7 billion in the three months to end of March. But adjusted earnings-per-share, which strips out one-time items, came to 1.92 yuan, missing the 1.94 yuan average estimate.

That being said, doing away with the traditional single player campaign doesn't mean that it's the end of the narrative or the end of solo play in the game itself.

Moving on from multiplayer, the zombie mode looks to be truly wonderful!

Black Ops Playable Characters and Fan-Favorite Locales - Blackout will feature classic playable characters from previous Black Ops games with a colossal map that features locations inspired by fan-favorite Black Ops multiplayer maps, including iconic areas from Nuketown and Firing Range.

It has the largest ever PC development team CoD has ever seen working on it, and will feature an uncapped framerate, 4K resolution and HDR, support for ultra-wide monitors, and the ability for players to extensively customise the performance and visual quality for their specific hardware. I want to see what Call of Duty can bring to the table.

We're seeing Activision enter the now quite small pool of Battle Royale games as a bonafide triple-A publisher with a lot of clout behind it - this could really shake up the scene that Fortnite and PUBG has been instrumental in creating.

In developer Treyarch's own words, this version of Black Ops' PvP is the most ambitious multiplayer to date - and we concur. Do you like the idea of battle royale in games like COD or BF?
