Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - Blackout Battle Royale Mode First Details

Activision held its Call of Duty Black Ops 4 reveal event last night, confirming that rather than having a single-player campaign, this time around Treyarch is focussing on additional multiplayer modes.

Call of Duty's new Blackout Battle Royale Mode is the one thing that a lot of Call of Duty fans want to hear about.

In addition to unveiling Multiplayer and Zombies in today's world premiere, the team also introduced Blackout - the new battle royale-style experience that combines Black Ops' signature fast, fluid, guns-up combat, with fierce new levels of survival competition across iconic Black Ops settings re-imagined at a colossal scale.

Zombies has become a staple mode in the Call of Duty franchise but things are being given a freshen up. Call of Duty: Black Ops IV will be taking multiplayer to the next level with increased tactical gameplay and player choice plus the largest Zombies offering ever with three full experiences at launch. Based on the information revealed thus far, that means that players will be able to enter the game's Battle Royale mode and use character skins from existing games in the series, weapons from previous Black Ops titles (including those featured in old zombie modes), and other items that touch upon the franchise's rich history.

It wouldn't be a Call of Duty game if there weren't a Zombie Mode. They have the fans to help pull this off. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available for pre-order, and as a bonus, you gain access to the upcoming beta for being pro-active.

There are some small but significant changes being made to multiplayer this time around. A while back it was rumored that Black Ops 4 would lack a campaign but, like any rumor, it should be taken with a grain of salt. Player health is not going to automatically regenerate like it used to do in Call of Duty 2 and players will have to rely on stimpacks instead.

The Pick 10 system from Black Ops III will be returning, but Treyarch has teased that it will be a little different this time around. It also includes the most customizable action to-date, new systems for creating and completing community challenges, and social systems designed to connect players. The PC version is also said to support 4k resolutions and HDR, ultra-wide monitors, uncapped framerates, and the ever popular decision to have dedicated server support.
