During a livestream earlier today, Treyarch revealed more details regarding Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII. Turns out, the rumors were true: including the traditional multiplayer setup and zombies mode, there will be a Battle Royale mode dubbed “Blackout” that will replace the single-player campaign. Instead, every mode will have narratives woven into them.
Blackout will be set on a map that is “1500 times bigger than Nuketown,” will feature vehicles and characters that have been in campaigns of previous Black Ops games, such as Alex Mason and Raul Menendez. No gameplay was shown of this mode today, unfortunately.
Zombies will also take players on a journey through time with three different maps: XI, a gladiator arena; Voyage of Despair, an abandoned cruise ship; and Blood of the Dead; a prison inspired by Black Ops 2 map Mob of the Dead.
Traditional online multiplayer is of course center stage in Black Ops 4. Treyarch are also working with Beenox on a PC port that takes full advantage of PC hardware. It will be available on Blizzard’s Battle.net.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is set to release on October 12 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter for more in-depth coverage from inside the event and analysis on everything else.
