The upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will not feature the traditional solo campaign which has been the key component to this famous shooter series in the last 15 years.
As reported by Polygon, two anonymous sources revealed that the developer Treyarch couldn’t complete the development of single-player campaign on time due to nearing Black Ops 4’s launch date on 12 October.
Instead, the developer is concentrating to enlarge the multiplayer and working on the famous Zombies mode. One source stated that the new Call of Duty will put an emphasis on cooperative mode to replace the standard single-player campaign experience. Previously, Black Ops 3 also added the two player co-op mode in the game’s campaign.
The heat of battle royale has finally caught up with this big franchise series. As a matter of fact, Kotaku reported that the Black Ops 4 will include a battle royale mode.
Not long ago, the Call of Duty publisher Activision has entertained the idea of putting battle royale mode in the game based on a report from top Call of Duty fansite Charlie Intel. Battle royale mode has become the hottest trend in video games nowadays thanks to PUBG, Fornite and the early-access Radical Heights.
With all these details keep coming out, Activision chose to spill further details about the game during the upcoming community reveal event on 17 May while giving the safe response that they “don’t comment on rumor and speculation”.
The latest instalment, Call of Duty: WWII became one of the best selling game in US last year, better than 2016’s Infinite Warfare. However, many players were not satisfied with the decent WWII’s single-player campaign though the multiplayer packed quite a punch with its innovative mode like the narrative-driven War mission.
In the meanwhile, professional Call of Duty players could join in the Call of Duty World War II 2018 Asia Championship and stand a chance to be the selected four teams to represent Asia for Call of Duty World League (CWL) in Anaheim, California.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is slated for release on 12 October for PS4, PC and Xbox One.
Aligned with the game’s tagline, “forget what you know,” which touches on mind control that seems to be rampant in this Black Ops series, do you think the next Call of Duty game will be losing its magic without the solo campaign? Tell us what you think in our Facebook and Twitter page!
