Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 battle royale mode announced

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 releases on October 12 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This update mostly fixates on a lot of the features directed towards multiplayer. "More than 200 million players have called Black Ops home, and they've played for more than 15 billion hours".

It also introduces a new manual health system that you must strategically employ: choose when to regenerate your health as it recharges on a cooldown. Multiplayer has been revamped to a whole new level, designed to offer more choice, reward more styles of play and create an even more intensely competitive experience. We got cinematic glimpses of what the three zombie maps will bring: One was called "IX", which appears set in an Ancient Rome-like era of gladiators and coliseums; another is "Voyage of Despair", which looks like it'll be Zombies on the Titanic; and then there's "Blood of the Dead", which carries a prison theme. Yet, now we know that they exist and, more or less, how they'll function-to a certain point. With ditching a campaign mode Activision is alienating a fair amount of their consumers who either don't want battle royale or want a single-player campaign.

One glaring thing that is pretty obvious about this announcement is a lack of anything relating to a single-player campaign.

We finally got our confirmation of the lack of a single-player campaign in Black Ops 4 today. 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.

The newest entry in the popular Call of Duty franchise was initially announced back in March.

"Narrative games are awesome - there will be a place for narrative titles - but just for what we wanted to do, this was the right decision".

It's not clear what the Blackout player limit will be, but Treyarch did divulge that the mode's map is CoD's biggest ever, 1500 times larger than Nuketown.

Should you pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 or wait?

This may come as a surprise to some PC players and Steam stalwarts, but Activision and Treyarch have assured fans that Battle.net will provide an exceptional experience.

Black Ops 4's zombies mode is a major part of the overall title, offering up three maps at launch. Land, sea and air vehicles are also playable as well as your favorite characters and weapons from previous Black Ops games.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be the first game in our history to use a true predictive recoil pattern system. There are already dedicated Battle Royale games. The game will also feature a wealth of control options, as well as support for an uncapped framerate, 4K resolution and HDR, ultra-wide monitors, and performance and visual quality customization.

At the event, Treyarch confirmed that the fourth Black Ops will not have a campaign.
