In recent releases Activision has taken its Call of Duty franchise into space (with its Infinite Warfare) and back in time (with the World War II release), now it’s looking to its past to bring it back to glory, while adding the massive multiplayer Battle Royale mode.
The new Black Ops game is set within a narrative universe between Black Ops II and Black Ops III and stresses multi-player gaming like the battle royale, improved league play, and collaborative features for gamers.
Franchise - Introduction - Battle - Royale - Mode
Critical to that is the franchise’s introduction of Battle Royale mode. Bringing favorite characters, favorite weapons, and the most iconic parts of players’ favorite maps along with the ever-popular zombies into a winner-take-all competitive landscape.
It’s a nod to the new ways gamers are playing and a pitch to rejuvenate Call of Duty — one of the world’s most popular game titles with Black Ops as perhaps the most compelling title in the company’s arsenal. Previous releases have failed to capture the imagination in the same way as its early releases. Now with Black Ops IIII is returning to the complete boots on the ground gameplay, and stressing the multi-player functionality that made the first games such a hit.
Game - October - PlayStation - Xbox - One
The game will launch in October and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.
Black Ops IIII doesn’t have a traditional campaign, but weaves narrative into each of the game’s modes. “This is a game that’s built to last for years to come,” said Treyarch chairman Mark Lamia.
Game - Developers - Game - Play - Sound
The game developers stressed more nuanced game play, with improved sound and graphics capabilities like more refined muzzle flashes and better audio for improved orientation. Weapons mods are getting an upgrade, with each weapon will get its own set of attachments. There are operator mods and better, more realistic recoil.
