Activision has finally released a long trailer for its Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The game had been confirmed a few months back but now we know a little bit more on what it will feature when it’s released later this year.
In the event, we saw one of the most important aspects of the game, the multiplayer. But there was one major removal for this year’s release. We’re talking about the campaign, which the game developer Treyarch has confirmed will not be part of the upcoming title.
The news were revealed by Treyarch Chairman Mark Lamia, who said during an interview earlier this week that there will be no traditional campaign. This means that this will be the first Call of Duty to leave out campaign.
Campaign was an important part of the franchise early on but it has taken a step back to the multiplayer in recent years. The removal is still some bad news as many still played the game for its campaign.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will feature something called Solo Missions, according to Lamia. He went on to add that there’s a story there, but it will be told inside the multiplayer universe.
Treyarch’s upcoming title will have its popular multiplayer, zombies and a new addition. The new addition is a game mode called Blackout. In the event, it was explained that this game mode will be like battle royale.
It was revealed that the game mode will have its own COD Black Ops twist to it. Among the things that were mentioned were vehicles and characters from previous games. It was also revealed that the map will be made up of different parts of maps that have been in past Call of Duty games.
The battle royale addition is not very surprising since it had been rumored a few weeks back. The success of battle royale games such as Fortnite and PUBG appears to have caught the attention of Activision.
The next Call of Duty will probably not be the only popular franchise to add battle royale. It has also been rumored that the next Battlefield will do the same. Both games have focused on multiplayer for years but this is a huge addition as we’ve never seen something like this on either franchise.
