Activision will be launching Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12th. With that said, Activision seems to be building the most ambitious battle royale game to date. The Black Ops overarchng story is one of the best in the series, behind Modern Warfare. Instead, you'll have to heal yourself - or rely on Crash, a medic who can restore other players' health, hero-shooter-style.

Expanding on the fan-favorite Mob of the Dead, the third map Blood of the Dead features the Origins characters from the previous Zombies storyline visiting the purgatory dimension of Alcatraz. Today we are going to cover everything there is to know about the new game and what type of cool and innovative features fans should get ready for. Developer Treyarch has revealed that it's still undecided on the player count on the Battle Royale mode and it also explained why it ditched the single-player mode.

One glaring thing that is pretty obvious about this announcement is a lack of anything relating to a single-player campaign.

In the event, we saw one of the most important aspects of the game, the multiplayer. However, an enterprising Reddit user took the time to count the little dots on the simulated map from the Black Ops 4 trailer and counted 140 players.

First Call of Duty Game on Blizzard's Battle.net - Through its partnership with Blizzard, Black Ops IIII will be available on the Battle.net online platform. Given publishers have to pay Valve a cut for every game sold on Steam, major games-makers are pushing towards their own storefronts a la Ubisoft with uPlay or EA with Origin (and of course Activision-Blizzard with Battle.net). Though Black Ops 4 gives players the opportunity to team up with friends to fight off undead hordes, it's doing so in a new way. Thanks to the possibilities opened up by witchcraft you will be able to battle zombies in eras that appear to be linked to Roman Gladiator and Titanic eras...

As was rumoured in April, there is no campaign mode for the first time in Call of Duty history.

In addition, the PC version will also feature not only dedicated server support, but graphics capabilities that support 4K resolutions, high dynamic range, and ultrawide monitors, all with uncapped framerates.

Black Ops 4 launches on October 12, 2018 on PC.
