Black Ops 4 will also be the first entry to be released on Blizzard's Battlenet platform.
Black Ops IIII Zombies will include Custom Games and new Game Modes, which will deliver a more personalized Zombies experience - allowing players to tailor the challenge and difficulty to their play style, and experience the game in a new way.
Blackout will apparently take place on the largest map in the history of the franchise, with players able to pilot cars, boats, and aircraft in their quest to be the last one standing.
There you have it - all the big news from the Black Ops 4 reveal. In fact, it's better.
Finally, the event wrapped up with one more cinematic trailer: a feel-good bit of encouragement about the magic of teamwork.
Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII is published by Activision, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI) and developed by award-winning developer, Treyarch, with additional development support from Raven Software and Beenox.
As you can tell from that insane setting, Zombies is where Call of Duty developers get to express their creativity.
It's a neat move for the series and one that leans on realism in a similar manner to what Call of Duty: WWII did.
It's that time of year again where a lot of gamers get excited for one of the longest running first person shooters.
The reason that this story is making the rounds at the moment certainly has something to do with the rumors related to Black Ops IV's reported lack of a single-player campaign. The official reveal trailer shows that despite having a futuristic setting, the combat is still very much grounded just with the addition of new type of perks and skills.
PUBG Creative Director Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene welcomed Black Ops 4 to the Battle Royale club on Twitter while Fortnite developers Epic Games have not responded yet. Predicative recoil patterns have made their way into the game as well so that players can truly learn the ins and outs of weapons in order to truly master them in a PvP context. Activision's Treyarch teases that teams who survive to the end will unlock "deep" secrets about the mode.
While battle royale is in, a single-player campaign is out. Players will encounter fan-favorite Black Ops map locations and call upon a massive arsenal of Black Ops weaponry and equipment as the winner-takes-all action creates a new way to play Call of Duty. What happens when people get bored of it? But otherwise, the announcement was scant of details - including how many players would be on the map at once.
Activision and Treyarch are taking a huge gamble here.
By far the biggest change in "Black Ops 4" is that the game will not feature any kind of normal single-player story to play through. And I have no idea what they're doing! There are already dedicated Battle Royale games. "You've watched as our undead have grown to become an essential part of the Black Ops experience".
