'COD: Black Ops 4' Battle Royale Confirmed, PUBG Says, 'Welcome To The Club'

Black Ops 4 raises the bar for Multiplayer mode that increases tactical gameplay and player choice, along with the biggest Zombies offering ever with three full experiences at launch, and Blackout, where the Black Ops universe comes to life in a massive battle royale experience featuring iconic characters and locations from all four Black Ops games in a one-of-a-kind offering that is uniquely Black Ops.

If you're in any way familiar with Battle Royales you'll know what to expect here - players are dropped into the map and must fight it out, solo or in squads, to be the last person standing. The game includes a number of different zombies modes, and fans will note the inclusion of eight new specialists that will radically shake up the standard multiplayer combat formula.

Zombies has become a staple mode in the Call of Duty franchise but things are being given a freshen up. With Black Ops 4, we've designed an experience for all play styles and skill levels from casual to competitive. Based on the information revealed thus far, that means that players will be able to enter the game's Battle Royale mode and use character skins from existing games in the series, weapons from previous Black Ops titles (including those featured in old zombie modes), and other items that touch upon the franchise's rich history.

Launching October 12 earlier today Activision and developer Treyarch lifted the lid, so to speak, on the upcoming Call of Duty Black Ops 4. "We're fans of all games, right?" Treyarch will be keeping the "boots on the ground" approach to movement that we saw applied in Call of Duty: WW2, so don't expect any insane wall-running or jetpacks like previous Black Ops titles have offered.

"How we look at it is, we are crafting our own experience with Black Ops 4", producer Miles Leslie said. It also seems that there'll be difficulty modes and the ability to play alone by filling out the team with AI-controlled teammates. Player health is not going to automatically regenerate like it used to do in Call of Duty 2 and players will have to rely on stimpacks instead.

There are Specialists, which tend to just about every play-style. In addition, Treyarch and Beenox worked closely with the team at Blizzard to incorporate Battle.net's social systems, security, and server stability into Black Ops 4, to prepare for the release on Battle.net on October 12.
