As of October 12, 2018, the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has been released in the United States across all platforms. This is a much needed hype boost for Activision, the company that makes Call of Duty, because the past few Black Ops games to be released were more than a disappointment to say the least. There are a few in-game updates that excite fans of the game across the country. In this article, I’m going to review some of the changes in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

The biggest change that’s easiest to point out is the addition of the “Blackout” mode. “Blackout” is Call of Duty’s first ever Battle Royale mode. Call of Duty made this change based on the excitement of Battle Royales brought to the surface by games such as Player Unknown’s Battle Grounds and Fortnite. Activision took a huge risk by this, because along with the addition of “Blackout” came the omission of the campaign mode. In my opinion, there was nothing wrong with the campaign mode in Black Ops. In fact, a lot of players tend to agree that the campaign mode was a fun and exciting way to take a break from multiplayer, and follow along with a story mode whilst sharpening your battle skills. Personally, I loved campaign mode. However, I do enjoy “Blackout” as well. In my perfect world, both “Blackout” and campaign mode would remain on the game.

Another change is to the Black Ops staple: Zombies. Zombies has always been a game mode of glory in my opinion. It gave players a chance to get online with their squad, slay some zombies, and work on their teamwork while surviving round by round. Black Ops has always had some good zombies, ranging from the classic zombies all the way to Nazi zombies. In Black Ops 4, the zombies has changed just a little bit. For example, the class system for weaponry along with the perks and “potions” addition has really changed the game for zombies. I must say, it isn’t my favorite Black Ops zombies mode I’ve ever played. However, Black Ops 4 zombies is a lot more difficult than the game modes I’ve played in the past.

As far as multiplayer goes, much is the same. A few changes include no wall running, as was possible in Black Ops 3, as well as some new game modes including “Heist”. All in all, Black Ops 4 is a really solid first person shooter. I’m excited to play more with my friends and I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys the Black Ops franchise.
