This will add a similarity between Call of Duty and another popular first-person shooter CounterStrike: Global Offensive, which also uses a similar predictive recoil pattern system in its weapon mechanics. They are merely jumping on the bandwagon of the newest "cool" thing on the block.
Activision didn't stop with mere hardware support for the next entry in the Black Ops series, though.
"Those of us at Blizzard have been friends with Treyarch for many, many years".
Black Ops IIII multiplayer is a grounded experience, with no thrust-jumps or wall-running. 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.
This Zombies iteration features an entirely new storyline, world, characters, and enemies. But whatever: In hitting on all the big bucket items that needed to be fixed, Activision should appease COD diehards (like me) and even attract new gamers too. These settings constitute the three launch-day zombie modes: IX, Voyage of Despair, and Blood of the Dead (respectively).
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies will see a clash of both the real and the mythical as seen in the new trailers revealed at today's community reveal event. It has competitive multiplayer (including a last-player-standing battle royale mode), and a cooperative zombies mode set over three very different locations. Players will have the option to either team-up or battle solo to engage in the most diverse combat ever that will allow combatants to utilize land, sea and air vehicles. Black Ops 4 marks the largest development team ever assembled for a Call of Duty title on PC.
In addition, the PC version will also feature not only dedicated server support, but graphics capabilities that support 4K resolutions, high dynamic range, and ultrawide monitors, all with uncapped framerates.
More details on Black Out and how it fits in the entire Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 ecosystem will be coming.
Here are the reasons to pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 today, and some of the reasons you should wait to see what Treyarch announces at E3 and in the run up to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 release date in October. Some familiar structures may appear as well, inspired by previous maps introduced in past Call of Duty games.
