Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII has really rocked the boat as far as annual CoD releases go.

Black Ops is the first of several upcoming video games expected to adopt the battle royale style, first popularized by "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds", then catapulted into stratospheric success by "Fortnite: Battle Royale". Black Ops 4 has been recently unveiled and to everyone's surprise, the game is nothing like players expected it to be. Unlike Black Ops 3, this mode is more "boots on the ground". Well, minus the massive player count, because Treyarch is undecided yet on just how many players it'll allow into any given session of Blackout. Miller than stressed that he was a big fan of narrative driven games, but acknowledged it was the right decision to focus exclusive on multiplayer for Black Ops 4. There will also be others like Alex Mason and Raul Menendez, who appeared in Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

As for the game's bread and butter, the core player vs. player multiplayer experience has seen some revamps, as well.

We are doing this, but we are doing it the Black Ops way.

"Those of us at Blizzard have been friends with Treyarch for many, many years". The character customization is improved, the Pick 10 system was reintroduced, they introduced a new feature known as the "Gear" system, and it will rejuvenate the rewards of team play. Additionally, there is the ability to customise the Zombie experience, with tones of mutations on offer for fans to play around with.

The first map takes the new team to ancient Rome where they battle against a cult, trying to turn slaves into zombies. Instead, Black Ops 4 will feature a manual healing system that required a player to jab a stun into the arm.

Traditional characters will be playable along with gadgets and even the Zombies cast and weapons unique to the mode. It's also supposed to be a "Black Ops" iteration of a battle royale, which, in the eyes of Tryearch, means it will have the most refined mechanics in the world. In addition, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, there will be a Blackout mode, analogous to "battle Royale".

Blackout will attempt to differentiate itself from the competition by amping up the vehicle side of things, with air, land, and sea options available. Everything from the visuals to the controls has been built and optimized for PC gamers in every way possible. It will have dedicated servers, tested on a wide variety of different PC hardware.

Developer Treyarch has also - per rumours - ditched the single player component for Black Ops 4.
