Activision has finally managed to bring the franchise back on its toes. For years now, Call of Duty series was considered to be an underdog as compared to Battlefield. Especially the last game in the series Call of Duty World at War 2 was a big failure. It was loaded with bugs and issue. Sledgehammer sure did lose their fan base big time because of it. It was not always the case. There was a time when Call of Duty games used to give tough competition to Battlefield series but not for the past few years.
Although it seems like the franchise has been reborn now. Sacrificing the single player mode was possibly the best decision that Activision took. They focused on Battle Royale mode instead which is extremely famous among gamers these days. Treyarch has already announced that this game is the biggest success they had in recent years. You can imagine how happy they are by sales chart finally going up.
Black Ops 4 may not look entirely new with some addition to the theme from Black Ops 3. Many “Specialist” are copied from previous game of the black ops series. Several maps give a similar outlook. Black Market offers unique content but with a tier system this time. Zombie mode is pretty much the same, in fact some players are complaining that they enjoyed WW2 Zombie more.
On the brighter side, this game has been divided into three categories: Multiplayer, Zombies and Black Out. Multiplayer mode offers new game types like “Control”. Several new Specialists have been added and some of the old ones have their abilities varied. Tempest’s electric gun does not kill you now, rather it leaves you vulnerable on the ground for a few seconds. His secondary ability is also changed. Seraph has been given a deploy beacon. Battery uses a sticky grenade as secondary weapon.
Game interface has been changed beautifully. A dynamic theme has been added to the match screen with character customization availability. Black Market has changed its system from cryptocurrency to tier level system. A lot of players are not happy with the new system and the micro transitions (you can skip tier level by purchasing COD points) but we think it is a good change.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 may not be able to completely steals PUBG or Fornite player base but it has surely provided a heavy blow to Battlefield 5. If you are a fan of Battle Royale Mode with stunning graphics and amazing gameplay, you should definitely buy this game.
