Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (stylized as Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII) is an upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter developed by Treyarch and published by Activision. It is scheduled to be released worldwide on October 12, 2018, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is a sequel to the 2015 game Call of Duty: Black Ops III and will be the fifth entry in the Black Ops subseries as well as the 15th main installment in the Call of Duty series overall.
Black Ops 4 is the first Call of Duty title without a traditional single-player campaign mode. Instead, it features the Solo Missions mode, which focuses on the backstories of the game's multiplayer characters, known as "Specialists". The missions take place between Black Ops II and III chronologically. Some of the Specialists also carried over from Black Ops III. The multiplayer mode is the first in the series to not feature automatic health regeneration and introduces both predictive recoil and a new ballistics system. The game includes three Zombies map on release day, four if a special edition of the game, or the Black Ops Pass, is purchased. The locations of the maps include the RMS Titanic, an arena in Ancient Rome, and Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary. The game also introduces a battle royale mode called Blackout, which features up to 100 players in each match. Many characters from this and other Black Ops titles can be used as the player's character model in this mode.
Development for the game started shortly after the release of Black Ops III. Treyarch chose not to create a campaign mode for the game at the beginning of development, instead putting all of their focus on the multiplayer aspect. They cited an increased interest for multiplayer and lack of time spent by the playerbase on the campaign mode as reasons why they shifted their focus. Black Ops 4 utilizes Blizzard's Battle.net platform for the Windows version instead of Steam, the first game in the series to do so. Teasing of the game began in March 2018, with a full reveal taking place later in May. Two betas were held for the game; one for the multiplayer in August and one for Blackout in September. The release date was moved up to October instead of the series' usual November in an attempt to avoid coinciding with the release of other high-profile games.
Pre-release reception of the game was mixed. Fans of the series expressed disappointment at the game's lack of a campaign mode. The Black Ops Pass, a season pass that distributes downloadable content (DLC), also received heavy backlash due to the map packs only being made available through the pass and not separately, which had been an option with the DLCs of previous titles.
Blackout is going to kill bubg very likely. I hate to say this but not fortnite. It's free, and epic games is not as gready as activison. Fortnite has gone shitier every seasson since 2 but milijon's nine year old's are still playing it.
I don't play cod or haven't played fortnite since seasson 4. To busy with forsaken
Sorry for typho's. English is not my main lannuage.
I'll buy Blackout because of excellent PC optimisation. Gonna make great use out of my 1440p 165Hz display.
However you are wrong about the "hundreds of millions of development costs". CoD cost is mostly marketing.
Yeah, I agree that PUBG will at least suffer from Blackout. I was pretty much a day 1 player on pubg & still play, but have been quite surprised at how slow Blue hole have been at optimizing the damn game - to the point it's frustrating. Obviously I'd give $70 for a well made pubg and I feel like that's what gamers will get w/ BO4. It'll show how slow blue hole have been & why gamers will ditch it. But! There's going to be MT's in black ops.
just like your video pop out with full of ads so you can make money off of it... not trolling just saying... anyhow i agreed with you about blackout gonna be great, i actually went and bought the pc copy as well as i already got the ps4 copy... this game be fun with mouse keyboard too. and coming from me im the guy that laugh at people that play CoD, but i actually like black ops 4 i tried the beta, and tried blackout and i must say WAY better than fortnite i never played pubg so i don';t know about that game... i hate fortnite because of the building and crafting in the game i hate minecraft never was a big fan of that game, i grew up like u playing freaking doom games in the early 90s.. so having minecraft in a shooter to me is just plain boring and stupid... I like the RAW combat like blackout and which i believe most people our age will love ... kids will always support fortnite....
I don't know about others, but for me the Battle Royale genre is getting pretty stale.
That being said I did like the Blackout mode in the Black Ops 4 open beta, but is it worth the 60$ price tag? Nuh-uh. To make matters worse its going to have MTXs build into it, so I'm not giving my support for a game like that.
Wow. So much toxin floating around the comment sections lately. I honestly don’t know why people are getting so worked up over video titles and such. Who cares what he calls the video? Who cares if there are ads and he’s making money? It’s his job; he has to make money. Most of the ads can be skipped after like 5 seconds, and it isn’t like the money comes out of your bank account every time an ad comes on. If you honestly don’t like his videos, that’s fine. Unsubscribe and go away. Posting toxic, demeaning comments isn’t going to make him quit YouTube or keep more people who like his content from subscribing. It just reflects back on you and shows what a lowly, pathetic person you are. Honestly, I think most of the people who are complaining about ads and monetization are just jealous that he’s actually making a living on YouTube while they are too talentless/lazy to do it themselves. If you really have a problem with the way DCG does things, then let’s see you create a channel and compete.
Almost all my nieces/cousins play Fortnite, it's "the cool thing to do", them along kids from their schools play it.
I really don't see them go to BO4, and while yes, "they're kids who cares", Fortnite won't die or be doomed because of BO4 coming out.
PUBG on the other hand, I can easily see it lose a decent chunk of it's playerbase, as it's both the basic BR type, and PUBG has dug a whole for themselves for a while (haven't checked last weeks).
A lot of it will also depend on streamers like Ninja, if they swap over or not. But again, saying it's because it's BO4 is a moot point in my opinion, there could be a more polished PUBG coming out that would have the same effect.
PUBG has awesome strategic depth and gun mechanics. Call of Duty will be what it always has been, twitch reaction shooting with pray and spray shooting mechanics. It's going to be very popular, but I don't think it's going to kill PUBG.
"New idea". Battle royal has been around for a long time. H1Z1 has been around for years. Yes blackout is a great adaptation but the other battle royal games were no different minus fortnite build mechanic.
I personally know pubg xbox wont be losing me. At least not yet. And deff. Not bc of black ops. The beta map sucked. Not enough gun options. Armour was way unbalanced. Just wasnt a fan. And idk what ur talking about "hundreds of guns", the options were very same-e. And there was maybe 15-20. Only difference was weapon type
I mean Fortnite is still free but PUBG idk everyone is calling Blackout a better PUBG and also Tencent is releasing Rings of Elysium which has literally been dubbed as a free to play PUBG as for Battlefield’s Firestorm it’ll have its own audience since it’ll be a WW2 Battle Royale and the same goes for RDR2 if it’s Battle Royale rumors turn out to be true same goes for Realm Royale and Battlerite Royale also Fortnite will also be fine since it’s different from other BR games but both PUBG and Fortnite still have the potential to take damage depending on what follows those games
We shouldn't underestimate fortnite... a huuuuge % of players are under 15yo. I have some far family members, 8yo and 7yo...playing fortnite. Those 30-50 million kids WILL NEVER ask their dad to go buy a call of duty game. Fortnite is made so even a 5yo girl can launch it, move, pick weapons, fire and make some kills. Then, there's the cute cartoonish, non-violent side of the game, allow these kids to be allowed to play, by their parents.
Epic have hundreds of great ideas ready to be deployed. The day another game starts becoming famous... bang !.... an entire new map, island, gets released, with the best weapons, best mods... and probably many many stuff asked by fans and gamers.
Fortnite won't die simply because its on mobile now and kids are a big factor. In NYC I see fortnite on kids phones, I've seen a kid play it on his Switch in Dunkin Donuts. It's going to outlast both of them if they are able to appeal to that demographic.
I think it's because there are a lot of ads on the videos. All the videos are just over the 10 min mark to make sure he gets more money. Subs from years ago like myself were drawn in by his reviews and top ten Thursdays and not the rant videos.
I want to like CoD4 I was disappointed with the lack of single player campaign, but what is really keep me away from this game is the season pass and deluxe edition. Way too many microtransactions, and pay to win. Oh well, RDR2 will hold me
Thank you! The Battle Royal craze was seriously sad af. So many games got bottle royal modes now it's stupid, even free to play shooters that's been out for years suddenly got BR modes. CoD don't even got a identity anymore. I guess all the Blackout noobs forgot that 2019 is coming.
I unsubbed after the smashing video!! Has he addressed why he took it down? I don't watch his videos anymore and won't till he makes a video apologising for it.. People over the world would kill for that console and he just smashes it.. I don't believe he was as poor as he said because if he was he would know not to have done that
+Legendsfaith3 he took It down it was only a few days ago.. If you look they is a 4 day gap between his last few videos as it was bang in the middle.. They was huge backlash in the comments I mean 80% complaining and he took it down and just expects all to forget.. Corward!! He should address his community to say sorry or explain why he took it down at least.. I unsubbed after but I'll watch the 1st min of his next few videos just to see if he addresses it
I thought you meant the genre was doomed because we have hit the saturation point and the fad will be over. Whenever a genre gets this popular I just think back to 10 years ago when WoW was massive and everyone started making their own subscription based MMORPG. Now, lets look at which ones are still around (or which ones had to go f2p)
The title of this video should be called
Blacks ops 4 will it be king of battle Royal ? Let's compare!
And no other battle Royal games will not fail...I'm sorry bro but that seems like a stupid question to ask just to make a video on especially with the ???????????????????????????????????????????????? I'm starting to see a lot now.
Join the unsubscribers! We need people like you to stop Max from losing his mind to the corporate mainstream! Unsub today and we are 1 unsub away from making him realize who he used to be and that we actually exist.
well you done just fucked up showing an snes cart because consoles back then didn't have online play..
Most game battle royal is no different to what death match and team death match was in the the late 90's and 4 player death matches were only feasible from large 50 inch screens and higher if you game options up to 8 players..
Whilst it may be called battle royal in loose terms when the true technical term is death or team death match with finite difference you don't respawn until the next map loads rather than go back to a team/player spawn point
TDM and DM didn't really see greater use until the ps3 and and was really limited on the original xbox...
it took sony 3 generations same with xbox to get to the point where pc has had it 12-15 years beforehand and was going from strength to strength by the time the internet caught upto 10/100 lan speed for an internet service I suspect if they had of developed online play on the ps2 with sata/ssd and hdmi I believe that the ps2 with more hardware refinement and hdmi inclusion into the market might of seen the console lasting longer same with the ps3 and latter ps4.
I think the purchase remaking games into something they are not needs to stop
look at halo5/blackops3 they were basically the same fucking game the only difference was different characters and different assets otherwise the storyline was a carbonized copy of each other..
At the moment we have a 3 horse race with pc in front xbox and PSN running neck and neck with nintendo still left in the start barrier for the last 12-15 years and people and Dev's scratching heads asking nintendo if or when are going to give us a new console platform to work with rather regurgitate wii/wiiu/switch OS platform with significant hardware upgrades to compete with PSN and xbox yet fail to do so living in a delusion game time
i have 2-3 hours on my switch i have a combined 1,000+ ps4/ps4pro and another 1,000 hours on xboxone and xbox1x
It will help kill PUBG specially now also that Rings of Elysium came out on PC for free. If Blackout was a mode sold separately for let's say $10-15 then it could definitely compete with Fortnite. But, kids love the game and it's free. Kids can't always dish out $60 to buy a full game.
Black Ops 4 is gonna be obliterated by the arrival of Red Dead Redemption 2 because it has a single player mode!!
Seriously Activision Go Fuck Yourselves for removing single player campaign story and selling out the franchise for a stupid as s battle royal mode!!!!
Fuck You Treyarch!!!!!
You say that you don't like microtransactions (which I also don't like) and that fortnite pushes you to buy something but black opps 4 most definitely also is going to have microtransaction and fortnite is free black opps 4 is about to cost 60 dollars so if you count 60 dollars PLUS microtransactions and fortnite that's a FREE GAME PLUS microtransactions which one is worst 🤔🤔🤔.
Dreamcastguy... Blackout mode is gonna Have Microtransactions, it's in Multiplayer, Zombies, & its gonna be in BlackOut. I'm only saying this cause u complained about microtransactions in Pubg. There's going to be micro transactions, it's Activision we're talking about here...
I honestly don't like the new COD or the black out mode it's to fast past for me and time to kill is to quick i feel like cod doesnt fit with battle royal it feels so badly put together and the rest of the modes don't have me interested I'm done with call of duty actually feels repetitive to me and I'm not touching another call of duty. Alright now I'm gonna get the COD fan boys commenting on here if you have nothing good to say then don't say any thing at all.
PUBG is DEFINITELY going to fail! The ONLY way Fortnite will be affected is if the popular streamers of Fortnite switch to Black Ops 4! But as long Fortnite remains free and the kids play it, it will remain #1.
Rename the title to let's talk out of our asses, because i can say anything i want without anyone looking over my shoulder, and lets hope people buy into it so that i can make some ad rev. yap yap yap you are all bones there is no meat on you at all. amazing.. this video contains at the very most two minutes of actual ideas. the rest is fantasy.
I have spent about £100 in Fortnite on skins, but now I am getting fed up with the forced notifications and cost of these not-so-micro transactions. Pubg I put hundreds of hours in to, but after hundreds of hours I saw no improvement in the game, and got disillusioned with their nickel and dimeing attitude towards their player base. I haven't been back to that game this year. Black Ops has the ability and opportunity to take large chunks of players from both camps. I just hope it doesn't try to copy other BR games and pester me for extra cash.
