What is the change in Black Ops 4?
Treyarch and Activision just announce a new Call of Duty Black Ops series. Black Ops 4 is not like its 2015 predecessor. The game is stripped single player campaign out of this installment completely. Only game modes are available is Zombies, Multiplayer and Blackout. I don’t have a clue that Treyarch’s decision to drop single player mode is unknown. This is the first Call of Duty game that won’t have story campaign but multiplayer. The question is how will fans feel about this? Call of Duty campaign about more movie-like than ever. Treyarch and Activision bring on high-profile actors to portray and voice their characters. Call of Duty story puts you on the edge of your seat. You will carve for more excitement in-game.
Treyarch try to capture audience from different shooter games. There are two in particular Fortnite and Battlefield 1. Call of Duty is starting to fall due to gamers preferences. Fortnite Battle Royale is one of the popular shooter as of now. Call of Duty was at its prime along with Halo, Overwatch, Plants Vs Zombies GW2 and Team Fortress 2. When Black Ops 3 was released, it started to lost mojo and fans wants old WWIII back. EA Dice release Battlefield 1 because they heard fans who are tired of futuristic warfare. There is another that’s jarring Zombies, I understand they want to tried something new. I don’t see it fit with exact tone of the game. Fortnite is more suitable for zombies because building mechanics and survival motif.
Call of Duty Ops 4 vs Fortnite Battle Royale
Fortnite is the only game that has two game mode Battle Royale and Save the World. Battle Royale is last man standing whether you are in a squad or solo. Save the World is a sand-box co-op, where players fight off hordes of zombies and scavenging items. Black Ops 4 has three game modes Blackout, Zombies and multiplayer. Blackout is a campaign like battle royale, where player use vehicles and different characters. Zombies is fighting off hordes of zombies and customize play styles. Multiplayer, player choose ten specialists classes and customization of equipment.
There is solo mission backstory for specific specialists. I guess Treyarch don’t have a lot of time to complete a full campaign. They incorporate campaign in multiplayer and Blackout. I think Call of Duty Op 4 have more variety than Fortnite. Call of Duty have classes not Fotnite in any case. Fortnite have skins, dance moves and customization for characters. Black Ops 4 have vehicles and Fornite doesn’t beside battle bus. Fornite partner with Twitch Prime and special events like Infinity Gauntlet. Call of Duty might consider during that in the near future. I see Black Ops 4 took some notes from Player’s Unknown Battlegrounds for transportation. Treyarch want to make the number one shooter of all time.
Will it be better than Fortnite Battle Royale?
They want watch closely to Fortnite, Battlefield and other shooters. Once Treyarch capture those audience, it time to create a game. Right now Fortnite is up at the billboard charts of shooters. Treyarch is finding a way to bring back hardcore COD fans back. Will it out-sell Fornite? Gamers have different taste went it comes to shooters. There will be more information about Call of Duty Ops 4 in the near future. Preorder Call of Duty Black Ops 4 for PlayStation4, Xbox One and Steam. The game is set to be release on October 12, 2018.
