Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 won't have a single player campaign

Speaking to Kotaku, Treyarch's Mark Lamia said "Black Ops 4 doesn't have a traditional campaign, we're weaving narrative into each of the modes". There will also be a new Zombie mode called Zombie Rush which will provide a new challenge to veterans of the games. We look forward to bringing you more information about this mode as it becomes available.

"How do we make Black Ops 4 deeper and more tactical than it's ever been before?"

According to the description of Blackout, "In Blackout, Black Ops comes to life in one massive battle royale experience, combining Black Ops signature combat and the biggest map in Call of Duty history". We asked Yale Miller, Senior Producer at Treyarch about the mode and he told us that things are still being tested in terms of player count, but he did confirm that the game mode will arrive alongside Black Ops 4 on October 12th. Players will be powerful alone, but devastating as a team working together.

It was heavily rumoured over the last few weeks, and now it's official: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will follow that Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) money and add a battle royale mode. Each co-op mode has its very own map: "IX", or Nine, will take players to a gladiatorial arena where it seems there will be a great deal of focus on melee combat; the next area, called Voyage of Despair, will take place on the Titanic; while Blood of the Dead is more of a throwback to fan favorite Mob of the Dead.

The first thing we need to mention about the new game is that players will now fight in a 5v5 team mode. Though players will now have 150 health points rather than 100, their health will no longer automatically regenerate when they catch a break from being shot at.

There is also going to be a new feature called Callings, post launch updates that include time trials, seasonal content and some more which will be revealed later.

Weapon recoil and knockback for Black Ops 4 on PC was also designed for those playing with keyboard and mouse controls. We see more and more players spending more time with multiplayer and zombies, not just in the game, but out of the game, streaming and talking about it in forums.

Speaking during a live event for the upcoming first-person shooter, the game's Design Director, David Vonderhaar, said: 'For us to even consider this experience it had to be unique and done in the way that only Black Ops can do it'.

It sounds like Treyarch is making a big effort with the PC release, revealing that it's planning for 4K and HDR support, an uncapped framerate, ultra-wide screen support and a range of customization options. "They have inspired and fueled us to set a new standard on PC across every aspect from dedicated servers and security to full optimization and polish that's worthy of both Black Ops and Battle.net".
