During the May 17 reveal, Treyarch confirmed that a Private Beta would be accessible to those who pre-order the game.
The new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 trailer is out and people are getting very, very excited. Obviously, the Call of Duty franchise has a huge fan base, but competing against Fornite is going to be more hard than expected. However, players will be able to engage in other modes as solo players, as well as play single-player missions that focus on multiplayer training through a story that takes place between Black Ops 2 and 3.
This scale is especially important given that the classic multiplayer experience in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is downsizing its player counts this year. The feature that surprised people the most was the all-new Blackout mode which is a battle royale.
The realism that defined previous efforts - and which the last iteration of Black Ops departed from - will return, with features such as jetpacks and wall-running eliminated in favour of more authentic fighting. Treyarch didn't share any other details on how the Pick 10 system will operate in Black Ops 4, only saying that it is being "revamped" for the title.
In the blurb accompanying the trailer, Activision says the new game promises "Black Ops' signature fast, fluid, guns-up combat, with fierce new levels of survival competition across iconic Black Ops settings reimagined at a colossal scale".
The Call of Duty franchise has a long history of including playable women, most recently with Call of Duty: WW2's female soldiers in multiplayer and the female resistance fighter in the game's campaign. Nonetheless, Fortnite is still free to play while Black Ops 4 will probably cost around $50 and this guarantees that Black Ops 4 will never surpass Fortnite's user base.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be launched on October 12, 2018.
