We are yet to get any official information regarding gameplay and featured modes from Activision regarding Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, however, there has been a fair amount of leaks so far.
The first rumour emerged a few days ago, claiming Treyarch didn’t have the time to develop a full story campaign, or Career as the sources claimed it was called this year. Not only that, reports emerged claiming the presence of a battle royale mode alongside the regular multiplayer modes. The latest news isn’t too pleasing to Call of Duty fans. After confirming the same information from several players who were invited to Treyarch to play-test the game, charlieINTEL claimed Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s multiplayer has similar gameplay elements to Overwatch and LawBreakers.
New Multiplayer information has been confirmed by more than one source so I can now talk about that more publicly. As of two days ago Multiplayer was in the worst state you have ever seen a Call of Duty multiplayer mode. Sources who have play-tested the mode claim that it is less like a Call of Duty mode and more like a Call of Duty Overwatch or a Call of Duty LawBreakers. The LawBreakers reference is incredibly apt considering what he told me next. Remember how I said the game was simultaneously boots on the ground and advanced movement? Well I can elaborate on that a little more too. The game was going to take the “hero” or “specialist” system from Black Ops 3 and take it to the next level. Perks were basically removed completely, and had instead been morphed into a strange kind of Kill Streak. Normal Killstreaks as we know them, for example harrier jets or chopper gunners, didn’t in fact exist in this version of Black Ops 4. Instead you got highly powerful perks. One of which was a Movement Alteration. It literally changed your movement from Boots on The Ground to something very strongly resembling Black Ops 3’s advanced movement systems.
Early signs don’t look promising, however, take this with a grain of salt till the worldwide reveal and more information is provided.
