Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII will be available globally on PS4, Xbox One and PC on Friday, October 12, 2018.
Numerous previous specialists will return for Black Ops 4 but with completely redesigned abilities. Instead, you'll have to heal yourself - or rely on Crash, a medic who can restore other players' health, hero-shooter-style. The return of Specialists means that teamwork takes precedence in that Specialist abilities support and complement one another, so a well-chosen team that plays as such will be a formidable force to be reckoned with. Teams of up to four players will battle against Zombies together, the undead coming in progressively larger waves as players make their way through the map.
As was also suggested months ago, there is a battle royale mode.
The news were revealed by Treyarch Chairman Mark Lamia, who said during an interview earlier this week that there will be no traditional campaign. Could this be their way of proving this rumor is true? Enter the announcement of Blackout, the game's new battle royale, last-man-standing mode.
What would Black Ops 4 do to follow up?
The newest entry in the popular Call of Duty franchise was initially announced back in March.
Treyarch isn't just satisfied to provide the game and walk away however, with promises of a new feature referred to as Callings, a wave of post-launch updates and features to spice things up as time goes on.
This Zombies iteration features an entirely new storyline, world, characters, and enemies. Next it may be another game, then Black Ops 4, and then ultimately people will move on to another battle royale game. We also learned that the PC version will be created to better meet the needs of PC gamers and will be exclusively available on Blizzard Battle.net. It is called Blackout, and includes famous characters from Black Ops series and the original Zombies mode, as well as air, sea and land vehicles.
As always, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will also feature the traditional multiplayer and Zombies offerings as well. Thanks to the possibilities opened up by witchcraft you will be able to battle zombies in eras that appear to be linked to Roman Gladiator and Titanic eras...
The PC version of Black Ops 4 will be treated "as its own platform" to "give PC gamers what they deserve". It will have dedicated servers, tested on a wide variety of different PC hardware.
