The brand new “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4” game was officially revealed on Thursday and brought with it the news that there won’t be any single player modes. Instead, the newest edition of the first-person shooter video game will be completely multiplayer and also include a competitive mode. Here are the latest details on what was announced with regards to the latest game in the line of Activision shooter titles.
To the dismay of many fans, there won’t be any real single player gameplay or a story tying things together like in past editions of the game. A report from Forbes confirmed that instead of having any single-player campaigns, the new “Call of Duty” game will have solo missions for multiplayer Specialists.
While there was a trailer released on the Call of Duty YouTube channel for the solo Specialist missions, it was more of a narrative teaser with a bit of video footage mixed in. Basically, there isn’t much information in the trailer with regards to what these particular missions might entail. There will probably be more information about them coming in the weeks and months ahead.
What the new game will feature is a competitive game mode called “Blackout” in which players are in a battle royale sort of competition. It will also include one of the biggest maps in the history of the game featuring iconic settings from previous installments of the game. The cooperative multiplayer mode will be called “Zombies.”
While there have been some pretty disgruntled fans sounding off on social media after the news of this title’s lack of a single player campaign, the new “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4” game will probably still sell more than a few copies. It’s slated for release on October 12, 2018, for the Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One, and Windows platform PCs.
