Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout Battle Royale Mode Announced

'COD: Black Ops 4' Battle Royale Confirmed, PUBG Says, 'Welcome To The Club'

As was also suggested months ago, there is a battle royale mode. Time will tell if a new game will attract enough players or not.

This announcement came as part of the official Call of Duty Black Ops 4 reveal event held earlier today.

Like the rumors suggested, there is no traditional single-player campaign in Black Ops 4, which maybe isn't surprising given how few people play it. But Black Ops 4 has made gameplay decisions to differentiate itself from the pack and give players reasons to make the jump.

With the rise of the battle royale genre in games like Fortnite and PUBG, Treyarch and Activision saw a major opportunity with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

If you want to play Black Ops 4 digitally on PC you'll have to buy it right from Activision.

After first being introduced by Treyarch for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 in 2015, "Specialists" will be returning in Black Ops 4 with a mix of new and old characters to choose from.

Blackout will apparently take place on the largest map in the history of the franchise, with players able to pilot cars, boats, and aircraft in their quest to be the last one standing.

Congress, JD(S) plan 'resort politics' to protect MLAs from poachers
Sources also say that Kudligi candidate Nagendra is the point man, who has been assigned the task of turning in the Congress MLAs. However, the governor invited the BJP to form the government stating that it was single largest party.

The zombie modes will have a new feature named Callings.

Battlefield V is rumored to be in the prototype stages of a battle royale mode, yet they are comitted to delivering a high-quality single-player experience as well, in addition to traditional multiplayer.

Treyarch is also adding a bot support, difficulty settings, "customizable tools and social systems", custom mutations, limited-time curated challenges, and a new mode called Zombie Rush. As I've said in the past, those other games would just be game modes in a bigger COD title. In Black Ops 4, these characters will have features with different types of abilities that will make them stand out on the battlefield and give them a unique role; something similar to what happens in games like Rainbow Six: Siege.

Although it is new, Control mode actually feels a lot like Domination, albeit instead of capturing and controlling zones from each other, one team attacks while the other defends two specific areas.

Expanding on the fan-favorite Mob of the Dead, the third map Blood of the Dead features the Origins characters from the previous Zombies storyline visiting the purgatory dimension of Alcatraz.

The game will launch in October and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. Given that the Black Ops series has one of the lowest campaign completion percentages, it's not hard to see why Black Ops developers might abandon the idea of campaigns entirely. The multiplayer mode was shown first and it actually looks like a pretty decent experience.
