Have E3 Leaked Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Zombies?
We have been getting some great teases from the folks at Treyarch on Twitter in regards to Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 which is getting real close to having its full reveal. Well this time a “leak” has happened and it was not Treyarch or Activision who let it out, but the person behind the E3 Twitter account.
The tweet is promoting a special retrospective looking at the history of the Zombies mode. This sounds like it is going to be a great panel so if you are going to E3 it is certainly something that you should check out.
While this Zombies Retrospective panel sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun. The Tweet also said this,
“What’s lurking around the corner of @Treyarch’s next Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies experience?”
They specifically mention that Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 is going to have a Zombies mode! To be honest with you, I would have been more surprised if it did not. Zombies have been a real staple of the Call Of Duty series and the last two games, Call Of Duty WW2 and Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare both had fantastic success with their Zombies modes.
Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare went for a more campy kind of feel, whereas, Call Of Duty WW2 took a more horror approach. I am very excited to think what kind of Zombie treats the folks at Treyarch have in store for us this year.
Will Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Bring Back Wall Running And Boost Jumping?
While I am having a great time with Call Of Duty WW2 and I have actually gotten used to no longer being able to double/boost jump or run along walls. I must admit that with the next Call Of Duty game, the heavily rumored, Black Ops 4 being set in a more modern time. I am actually quite hopeful that the folks at Treyarch may bring back wall running.
The slower more methodical pace of Call Of Duty WW2 is a very nice change of pace and apart from the limits on how long you can run, I have not actually heard anyone complain about it. However, with wall running being in the last Black Ops game, I do have a feeling that this may be something that Treyarch want to keep in. I have felt that their COD games are always a little more fast paced, with an emphasis on run and gun and that is cool with me.
Being able to boost in Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare was actually something that I thought was pretty cool. It was always pretty cool being able to run along the wall, boost jump and then shoot someone. While I have a strong feeling that wall running will return in the next COD game. If the rumors are true that the next game is set in a modern setting and is a “boots on the ground” type game that we have heard so much about. I do not think that boost jumping will be part of it.
I would love to know if you guys would like to see wall running or boost jumping return in Call Of Duty Black Ops 4.
Should Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII Have A Battle Royal Mode?
As I am always on the hunt for news on what is coming in the world of Call Of Duty, I was pretty blown away by what I have read today and that is the possibility of a battle royal mode coming to Call Of Duty!
We all know that and are killing it right now, these games not only have millions of people playing them, but they are the most popular games on Twitch right now.
Well according to they are very aware of this and have an eye on the Battle Royal genre. This was said to a group of investors. Now to be fair they did not come out and say that there is the talk of adding a Battle Royal mode to Call Of Duty Black Ops 4, but unless they have some new IP that we do not know of, what other game from could possibly have a Battle Royal mode in 2018?
I may be reading a lot into this, but like most companies love money and they know that right now the money train is Battle Royal modes. I think adding a Battle Royal style game mode to Call Of Duty Black Ops would be a great idea. Maybe it would not be ready at launch and to be honest I do not feel that they would need it, but as an update, released after the holiday rush of sales, I think it could shift a ton more copies of the game!
Who knows, may even decide to have a Call Of Duty Battle Royal free to play game in the same style as .. that would be huge!
Treyarch Drops More Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Information
On their official Twitter page, Treyarch posted yet another teaser for the multiplayer that is going to be the main focus of Call Of Duty Black Ops 4.
They posted – “Don’t worry, we know some people . .which has its perks.”
Which was accompanied by a very interesting picture a picture that showed badges which are most likely going to be some of the perks in the upcoming Call Of Duty Black Ops 4.
One of the badges was a ladder with two hands climbing it so you would have to assume that this is about climbing faster. The next one was a gun being reloaded which will be faster reloading I am assuming and a perk that I sure as heck will be wanting to use a lot. The next one is way more confusing it is an animal. I am no animal expert, but to me, it looks like a hyena or a jackal and I honestly have no earthly idea what this could be a perk for, maybe some kind of special sense perk that allows you to see hidden enemies? The last one is a boot that is running, so quicker run speed is most likely what this is for.
Then there are two blank spaces so perhaps in the coming days, the people at Treyarch will tease us with what those other two space are… well, I certainly hope that they do.
I think it is awesome that Treyarch is having some fun by dropping these little teases. I would love to know what you guys think these perks could be.
Will Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Have The Most Story Driven Zombies Yet?
As we are all prepared for October’s Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 to not have a campaign and instead have a Battle Royale mode as its main “single player” content… which is kind of weird as the whole point of a Battle Royale mode is to play with other people. Anyway, that is not the point of today’s blog post.
Call Of Duty WW2 Nazi Zombies is the most story driven zombies mode yet, each of the two DLC packs we have had has continued the story on and I and I am sure many of you guys are genuinely interested in where the story is going.
This got me (and some other people online) thinking that one way that Activision could make up for the lack of a campaign in Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 is to have zombies be even more heavily story driven. While Zombies is at its best when played with other people, it is near impossible to progress far on your own actually. I still think having an actual story to play through would be a lot of fun.
I am one of the “weird” people who actually enjoyed the different campaigns in the Call Of Duty series. I always felt that more often than not they were actually really good and it was part of the game I looked forward and usually the first thing I would do each year when the latest Call Of Duty game would drop.
Do any of you guys think that adding even more story to the Zombies mode helps make up for the complete lack of a campaign?
Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Reveal Event Announced….. Kind Of
We are all very excited for this year’s Call Of Duty Black Ops 4, even though we know pretty much nothing about it at this point.
Last year, Activision did a pretty big reveal event for Call Of Duty WW2 and it appears that they are doing it again this year, only it was not Activision who revealed it, but a UK video game retailer, GAME!
The event will take place on May 17th and it will happen in Los Angeles. We know this because GAME offered tickets plus flights for the event! It is a pretty awesome contest and you can bet that I have already entered it.
In order to enter the contest, you, first of all, have to be a UK resident, but you need to pre order, Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 before the 27th of April. If you are going to pre order the game anyway, you might as well do it now so you can enter the contest. I had no plans to pre order just yet, but I thought what the hell and I did!
You have to wonder what Activision is thinking about this. They usually like to announce things themselves, but this time they were beaten to the punch by one of, if not the largest video game chain in Europe.
May 17th cannot come quick enough as so far all we know is that the name of the game is Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 and the release date is the 12th of October which is a little earlier than we are all used to. However, the reason for this could be that they do not want to compete with Red Dead Redemption II which is released a few weeks later.
