New Game Modes Confirmed for Black Ops 4

After the controversial announcement that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 would not feature the standard single-player campaign seen in every other game of the franchise, Blizzard has just announced what will be replacing it: A battle royale mode.

 

In what many see as a rather shameless attempt to capitalize on the popularity of games like Fortnite: Battle Royale, the latest Black Ops has just been confirmed to feature its own battle royale mode during the live reveal event. Called Blackout, this game mode will likely work the same as its predecessors, pitting a large number of players against each other in a last-man-standing firefight.

 

While the addition of Blackout is arguably the biggest news to come out of the event, several other features of the new game were also confirmed at the same time. A franchise staple by this point, Black Ops 4 will feature the requisite zombie fighting mode, but with a twist – there will now be three different zombie modes to choose from.

 

As one would expect, there is also the traditional multiplayer versus mode that will be making up the bread and butter of this year’s release now that the campaign has been axed, pitting players against each other in teams using different weapons and strategy to kill each other. Finally, the game will also feature exclusively single player missions that, rather than compose a campaign, are simply small tasks to be completed using the characters from the multiplayer mode. More explicit details as to what the missions will entail has not yet been revealed.

 

Black Ops 4 will release on October 12 this year, available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. Additionally, the PC release of the game will not be on a distribution platform like Steam, but available on Blizzard’s own Battle.net exclusively as a first for the series.

 

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’ revealed to be multiplayer game with solo missions

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.
