Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 revealed ahead of October release

When the game launches, there will be three modes to choose from with four new characters and some brand new enemies. "All we're saying is that it's hands-down more than we've ever done before". 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.

Blackout mode, as it's called here, takes place on a map 1,500 times larger than any previous Call of Duty multiplayer locale, delivering a free-for-all battle to be the last player standing.

Just before the annual rush that is E3, Activision and Treyarch games hosted a community livestream event in Los Angeles which confirmed that this year's release will be called Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (or IIII if you're using the official style and hate shorthand Roman numerals). Players will be powerful alone, but devastating as a team working together. On the upside, Black Ops 4 will be the first Call of Duty game to land on Blizzard's platform, and if the situation is well-received by the players, it likely won't be the last.

Zombie experiences are popular with players and Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will launch with three difference undead experiences.

Earlier today, the new cooperative multiplayer mode was announced flaunting some of its new features including weapon-specific attachments, more tactical-focused gameplay, and manual healing. With Black Ops 4, we've designed an experience for all play styles and skill levels from casual to competitive. Therefore, the new healing system is going to slow down combat and the way players approach different combat scenarios. Battling solo or in teams, players will engage in diverse combat complete with ground, air and sea vehicles across a gamespace unlike anything ever in Call of Duty. "The same goes for our PC community". Players will be able to select classes still, and characters from the Zombies mode will be playable. "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".

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. Making those engagements feel as Black Ops and Call of Duty as possible.
