The series Call of Duty is back with Call of Duty Black Ops 4 – built with amazing experience for the Black Ops community. It is the 15th main installment for the series and things are a bit different this time as this will be the first COD game without the traditional single-player campaign mode. Instead there will be solo missions which put more attention on the game’s specialists’ background stories.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 provides the most tactical multiplayer experience ever in Black Ops series with triple number of adventures and an all-new Battle Royale-inspired mode that brings locations, weapons, gears and characters from across the series in all-out survival combat. It is observed that the game developer has outlined a lot of promising changes based on feedback to the recent beta.
Among the major improvements introduced by the game are some stability improvements for the PC version including featured playlist tiles for Multiplayer and Blackout with a new 100-Players Duos playlist and an 88-Player Quads playlist. In addition some of the issues that have been present at the launch have been fixed.
The biggest change is the full reveal circle that will be removed as default functionality as the standard reveal area will be a cone that reflects the player’s field of view. The gameplay is more realistic with a much more strategic way of playing rather than just running and gunning. In this game you need to utilize the specialist skills while the changes to body armor have been welcomed by the Black Ops 4 community.
The game has a competitive Multiplayer mode, a cooperative Zombies mode and a well-polished battle royale mode entitled Blackout. Thus the multiplayer feels drastically different after just a few matches and revealing a more tactical game with focus on playing as different ‘specialists’ that can affect the game in different ways.
These are some really promising changes to the Black Ops 4 that players have responded well to. One more impressed improvement is the game developer’s level of communication with Black Ops 4 players where it explained its decision-making in a raft of reddit posts as it updated the beta between weekends to fix the issues of movement and bunny-hopping.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 makes an array of changes to the yearly multiplayer formula including morphing ideas from other games to make them its own. This game remains one of the most pervasive series in modern video games and with three separate studios working on a three-year rotation, the franchise has often grown stale. For this time there developer has finally improved the formula with Black Ops 4.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is a reinvention which is desperately needed by the series. I recommend this game if you have interest in fast online shooter and put aside some preconceptions regarding the lack of single player in a game.
