Things We Learned from the Black Ops 4 Reveal Event

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Nintendo Switch Pre Order Cases Surface Before Official Reveal

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 community event took place earlier today, providing us with a treasure trove of information when it came to what will be included in the forthcoming sequel. Much of the big news confirmed rumors that have been floating around for the past month or so.

Finally, a brand new mode is coming to the Call of Duty franchise. Stripping away thrust boosters and wallrunning, making health regeneration manual rather than automatic, providing bespoke attachments for individual guns, adding predictable recoil patterns, and ensuring you're nearly always able to fire your weapon, even while vaulting - these changes make Black Ops 4 feel much more competitive than any of its predecessors.

You read that right - this one's all about the multiplayer. In essence, they're aiming to making shooting more fluid without the jetpacks and boost jumping. Their tools can set enemy players ablaze, protect an area with razor wire, or give health to nearby teammates.

We played the game for an hour, and in that time, the main thing we noticed was how dynamic the rhythm and flow of the game has become thanks to the dedicated button you have with which to heal yourself. Blackout is an experience unlike any other game or mode in Call of Duty history, where players will have to scavenge, strategize, compete and survive to win. They wanted to make this "essential to gameplay loop like reloading your weapon". The Black Ops overarchng story is one of the best in the series, behind Modern Warfare.

Nick Read to head Vodafone
Vodafone has challenged the tax notice under the Netherlands-India Bilateral Investment Treaty and the matter is now arbitration. He said the group's "strategic transformation is nearing completion", but said Vodafone was "starting to write a new chapter".

Aside from that, the developers at Treyarch really went deep into the weapon customization options with tons of different attachments and upgrades for each gun.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launches on October 12, 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. There's one in a gladiator arena and another on a cruise ship that appears to be the Titanic, and it's all very confusing. The last, Blood of the Dead, is a reimagining of the Mob of the Dead map from Black Ops 2.

Today, Activision and Treyarch revealed Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, a multiplayer-focused shooter that features bits and pieces of previous Black Ops games. We will also see three returning Black Ops 3 specialist and they are Ruin, Seraph, and Firebreak. Treyarch hasn't shown any actual footage of the mode yet but if we were to speculate, there are large open spaces in-between these maps like the ones we have seen in other battle royale games. Players will able to navigate it with land, sea, and air vehicles. Get a first look at Black Ops 4 multiplayer, below. Instead, the game will fold narrative elements into each of its competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes, according to Kotaku. Combat is more tactical, yet more fluid than ever.
