Black Ops 4 Multiplayer and Black Ops 4 Zombies may have some new features and a few surprises, but they have long histories in the Call of Duty franchise. However, the next iteration in this series will have something brand new: Call of Duty Black Ops 4 – Blackout Battle Royale. When the the Activision/Treyarch team introduced this in today’s world premiere Community Reveal Event, the audience reacted with excitement, which isn’t that surprising since battle royale games like Fortnite and PUBG are incredibly popular these days.
What is especially exciting is that this will be a battle royale experience like none other. Sure, you are dropped in a large world where you have to fight to survive and be the last man standing like other battle royale games, but here you are doing it with Black Op’s signature fast, fluid combat, with classic Call of Duty characters, and a map that features iconic Black Op’s settings adapted to a massive scale. You battle solo or in teams and engage in combat with an enormous arsenal of weaponry and equipment, including ground, air and sea vehicles on a map that is over 1,500 times bigger than Nuketown.
