Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 release date and news: New trailer for Blackout mode
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is just over a month away. It is the last entry in the series of long-term shooters, which began in historical scenarios such as the Vietnam War and World War II before changing course to the near future.
Black Ops 4 will be a bit different from previous games in the Black Ops series, with the single player campaign disappearing, replaced by the current trend – a royale battle mode called Blackout.
Besides that, there will also be a Zombies mode, just missions and a regular multiplayer mode. A beta for Blackout mode will hit the PS4 next week, but PC and Xbox One owners will not have to wait long, with the beta coming into their systems later in the week.
While we wait for more details, and then the launch of the game, you can continue reading to discover everything else we know Call of duty: Black Ops 4 below.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4: Everything we know so far
Blackout Mode  Official Call of Duty® Video: Black Ops 4 – Blackout Battle Royale Trailer
Blackout is Call of Duty is a version of the successful Battle Royale genre, which has exploded in success thanks to games like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown & # 39; s Battlegrounds . According to the developer Treyarch, the mode presents the largest map they have created (500 times larger than Nuketown, apparently), and players can use a variety of land, sea and air vehicles to cross it.
Beta Blackout begins for PS4 owners who ordered the game in advance on September 10 at 6 p.m. M., Time of the United Kingdom. The owners of PC and Xbox One will be able to test it a few days later, on September 14. 24 hours later, anyone with a Battle.net account will be able to try the beta version, even if they have not previously done so.
There are not many other details about the floating beta, but Treyarch has confirmed that there are three different ways to play the royale battle mode: alone, in duos or groups of four players.
According to Gameinformer the Blackout mode will feature up to 80 players who will face each other. That is 20 less than Fortnite and PUBG but apparently the number is not written in stone.
The latest advance released for the game shows Blackout mode. You can see it up.
This mode was revealed in May in the great revelation of the game. During that revelation, we learned that the mode will include calls, seasonal events, and other events will also be presented, which will be held daily, monthly, and annually.
The mode is possibly the most interesting of the three Black Ops 4 modes, and it has a bit of history. You will join three other players (or bots) to travel back in time and defeat a wild zombie cult. There are three missions that take place in different places: The Nine (a Roman arena), Voyage of the Despair (the Titanic) and Blood of the Dead (a hodgepodge of previous locations Black Ops ).  Multiplayer Mode
A more traditional multiplayer mode will also be present in the game. The way sees the return of the specialists, the playable characters in multiplayer mode. There will be ten specialists, each with weapons and unique abilities …
- Ajax – icebreaker, with ballistic shield and tactical grenades.
- Battery – expert in demolitions, with a grenade launcher and cluster grenades.
- Shock – healer, with medical kit and ammunition.
- Firebreak – denial of the area, with a flamethrower and reactor core.
- Nomad – lover of nature, with a dog and tripwire explosives.
- Prophet – unknown role and weapons.
- Recon – intel operator, with a pulse of vision and sensor darts.
- Ruin – rusher, with a slam attack and a grapple gun.
- Seraph – tactician, with a revolver and a deployable lighthouse.
- Torque – defender, with a barricade and barbed wire.
The game will also include solo missions – set in multiplayer maps – that will focus on each of the game's specialized characters, with these missions presenting players to the characters and highlighting their stories. However, they are not intended to be campaigns, but explanations for specialists.
Automatic recovery was removed in Call of Duty: WW2 campaign mode and Black Ops 4 will see it abandoned in multiplayer mode too . Now you must use a button dedicated to healing to replenish your health, instead of having to wait for your character to stop taking damage.
That function seems to be ready to promote a more prudent tactical game, since the ability has a timer, so you can not heal every time they hit you.
Added a feature called Fog of War to multiplayer. That means you can only see a short distance of your character on the minimap, unless you have some skill or specialized equipment on hand.
There are also new weapons available. They are called signature weapons and offer aesthetic differences instead of statistics updates. Five multiplayer maps of the history of the series will also be included, along with a selection of new maps, of course.
Support for Nintendo Switch?
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will definitely hit the PC, Xbox One and PS4, but in terms of compatibility with Switch? We are not sure, but we still have hope.
Activision declined to comment when asked if Black Ops 4 would arrive at the Nintendo switch by Kotaku, that some might suggest that they are working on it.
Gaming Journalist Marcus Sellers has predicted that the game will come out of the Switch, however, saying it will support Switch DLC, HD and rumble and motion controls. According to his tweet, the Switch version will be carried by a company familiar with games Call of Duty .
