Last month there were rumors suggesting that Treyarch could be getting behind the battle royale feature for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 that many games seem to be offering these suchs, such as Fortnite, PUBG, and more recently even DotA 2. For those wondering about those rumors, it looks like they were right on the money.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will indeed have a battle royale mode called “Blackout”. According to Treyarch, this is the culmination of years of work on the Black Ops series in which they are combining all of the best elements into a single map where players get to duke it on land, sea, or even in air vehicles.
According to the description of Blackout, “In Blackout, Black Ops comes to life in one massive battle royale experience, combining Black Ops signature combat and the biggest map in Call of Duty history. Play as fan favorite characters and battle through iconic settings from the Black Ops universe. It’s a collision course bringing together the worlds of Black Ops in an all-out survival and elimination experience featuring weapons; equipment; land, sea, and air vehicles; RC-XDs; traps; and even Zombies in an experience that is uniquely Black Ops.”
We have no idea how it will play but if it is as advertised, then it should be pretty epic. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be released on the 12th of October, 2018 where it will be exclusively available via Blizzard’s Battle.net launcher.
