Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Our full coverage

‘Call of Duty: Blacks Ops 4’ is the 2018 entry to Treyarch and Activision’s first-person shooter series. It’s been reviewed fairly well across the board, even with its lack of a single player campaign. In lieu of that, Black Ops 4 includes a new mode called Blackout that is its own spin on battle royale. Featuring classic weapons, characters from previous entries, vehicles, and even zombies, it brings some of the best mechanics the series has to offer.

Players can also find a competitive multiplayer mode that arrives with 10 different specialists, each with their set of unique skills and abilities. Modes such as Hardpoint, Control, and Domination make a return to ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’ multiplayer, alongside classic maps like Slums, Nuketown, Summit, Jungle, and Firing Range. New maps Frequency, Spanish Seaside, Payload, and Contraband enter the fray as well.

A Black Ops game wouldn’t be complete without a Zombies mode, which can be played cooperatively and comes with a set of three campaigns called Blood of the Dead, Voyage of Despair, and Army of Darkness.
