Here’s everything you need to know about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies, Campaign, and Battle Royale
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 gameplay is, as the initial reports claimed, committed to being “more grounded” with toned down sci-fi elements. Specialist roles are making a return in multiplayer, but Black Ops 4 will not see the return of thrust jumping, wall running, or automatic health regen.
Read below for more on what we know about Black Ops 4’s multiplayer modes.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies Mode
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Zombies mode will have three maps at launch, as well as difficulty levels, tutorials, a custom mode with over 100 options, online challenges called Callings, and more. Black Ops 4’s May 17 reveal event provided us with our first look of Black Ops 4 Zombies in action, including a colosseum-themed map featuring only melee weapons and a cruise ship-themed map called Voyage of Despair. Its third map, called Blood of the Dead, was not shown at the event.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Campaign and Single-Player
Initial claims that Black Ops 4 would not have a traditional single-player campaign at launch were true. Instead of a traditional campaign, Black Ops 4 will feature a series of solo missions set between Black Ops 2 and Black Ops 3. Featuring new and returning Specialist characters, these missions will give players glimpses into each Specialists’ backstory and an opportunity to learn new tactics. Black Ops 4’s zombie mode may also be played solo.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Royale Mode Black Out
Black Ops 4’s battle royale mode is called Black Out. It will be available at launch and feature a map 1,500 times the size of an average Call of Duty map, with weapons, tools, and even characters from Black Ops multiplayer and Zombies available.
Leading up to the official announcement of Black Ops 4 battle royale, Activision expressed its awareness of battle royale’s success and a source even told Kotaku that Black Ops 4 would have a battle royale mode. Turns out they were right!
