Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is a downloadable multiplayer first-person shooter game with battle royale mode. Easily one of the most successful video game franchises on the market, the Call of Duty series from Activision Blizzard is not only an old series but also a mainstay of the industry. Even though its massive multiplayer success has been much the story of the Call of Duty series for the past decade, the game actually has roots as long back as the original Xbox and is one of the original two epic first-person World War II shooters that came out way back when.
Alongside Electronic Arts’ Medal of Honor, no other series has captured the popular imagination quite like Call of Duty. Now in its fourth version of its Black Ops spin-offs, Treyarch takes the traditional formula to the next level and shows influences from new trends such and battle royale gaming.

The Game Review
Though the single-player modes in Call of Duty games is always as solid as it is in any other game, the real attraction to a Black Ops title is the insane multiplayer gaming that can occur as a result of being the COD franchise.
Players come to Call of Duty for multiplayer gaming, and Black Ops IIII does not disappoint in this area. Taking place chronologically between the last game and the second game in the series, the fourth Black Ops title is the first multiplayer to not feature regenerating health, instead relying upon a health bar system as in older, classic FPS titles.
Arriving on day one with three zombies maps already installed (four if you have a season pass), Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 continues the series’ tradition of offering variety on top of the traditional gameplay.
Though zombies are not the core experience of the fourth Black Ops title, the zombie side games are nonetheless of critical importance to Treyarch and are often one of the touchpoints addressed by gamers coming to the game. If you want to have a solid Call of Duty experience, zombies have to be a part of that and the zombies featured in Black Ops IIII are some of the best ever introduced in Call of Duty.
We mentioned the extensive multiplayer gaming options in Call of Duty Black Ops IIII because this is the first title in the Black Ops sub-series to eschew the single-player campaign mode. Often an exposition for the game’s storyline, the absence of a story entirely in Black Ops 4 can be jarring for those that have been longtime players of the series. That’s because a lot of the focus has been on the company’s Blackout mode, or the battle royale aspect of Black Ops IIII. Battle Royale is the latest buzzword to take the gaming community by storm, but it is well represented here in Black Ops 4.
Not only is battle royale gaming a solid part of Black Ops but the unique interpretation Treyarch has taken on the genre fits in with the Black Ops aesthetic. Featuring up to 100 players arranged in a variety of configurations, the sheer scale of the Blackout mode will attract many fans of battle royale games to Black Ops IIII.
