Adjust Comment Print

Perhaps the most highly-anticipated announcement was Activision's addition of a Fortnite-style battle royale mode to the game.

First, Black Ops 4 will not include a single player campaign. You can check it out right here.

There is also going to be a new feature called Callings, post launch updates that include time trials, seasonal content and some more which will be revealed later.

The heart of any Call of Duty game is its multiplayer, so Activision kicked off the proceedings with a lengthy (and suitably flashy) look at its traditional team-based offering.

With about a month to go before E3 2018, Activision and developer Treyarch held an event to officially reveal Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

This will greatly change up matters as players will need to strategise and figure out when to run and gun and when to hang back and heal.

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. Although we didn't see any gameplay, Treyarch said the mode, titled Blackout, will be played on a single large-scale map and will feature land, air, and sea vehicles.

"Blackout is an experience unlike any other game or mode in Call of Duty history, where players will have to scavenge, strategise, compete and survive to win", the studio said.

"In Blackout, Black Ops comes to life in one massive battle royale experience, combining Black Ops signature combat and the biggest map in Call of Duty history". Including, as we predicted, integration for PC.

The PC version of Black Ops 4 will be treated "as its own platform" to "give PC gamers what they deserve". Black Ops 4 marks the largest development team ever assembled for a Call of Duty title on PC.

On the PC, players will be able to enjoy features such as uncapped frame rates, and support for 4K resolution, HDR and ultrawide monitors. "We always started from the place of, we're going to make something different with this game that was going to be inspired by how our community was interacting with Black Ops 3 and the games over the years", Bunting told Eurogamer. All three "experiences", as Treyarch calls them, will be available day-1. Players will assume the roles of characters from across the series as well as characters from the various Zombies chapters.
