Specialists And Score Streaks In Black Ops 4
There has not really been any groundbreaking Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 news the last few days. This is most likely because the folks at Treyarch and Activision are getting ready for the upcoming betas. Well, I have been thinking about the specialists and scorestreaks in Black Ops 4 and what they could be.
I like to think of specialists as kind of like Call Of Duty’s version of Overwatch heroes or Rainbow Six Sieges operators. Each specialist will have their own finishing move and of course, the weapon systems that each one will have will be kind of unique and fit in with the style of the character. I am looking forward to finding what one suits me best and also playing around with them as no doubt there will be plenty of customization options. One of the coolest sounding things is that all of the guns are now going to have their own kind of attachments so all shotguns will not just have the same attachments. Each one will be different.
I think by this point score streaks are a legal requirement of Call Of Duty. There is going to be score steaks in Call Of Duty Black Ops 4. What the different bonuses in regards to offensive and defensive abilities are I am not sure just yet, but this is bound to be revealed in the coming weeks. Scorestreaks are always a lot of fun and I find that they add a little more excitement and drama to multiplayer.
Top Level Rewards Coming To Call Of Duty WWII
If you have already reached the Master Prestige rank in Call Of Duty WWII and have been wondering where your recognition and special rewards are it looks like you will not have to wait much longer.
Once you reach Master Prestige you then have to make the long trip to a further 1000 levels! You do this and that character will be well and truly maxed out. Sledgehammer Games have not given any exact details, but they have said that there will be rewards for hitting certain milestones on the road to 1000. I would assume that there will be some kind of reward every 50 or 100 levels.
So what if you get deep in the mud and make it all the way to 1000? Well, Sledgehammer Games did actually show off some of the gear that is up for grabs. If you have seen the Royalty Gear that was in Advanced Warfare that is a good description of what the Call Of Duty WWII Master Prestige Gear looks like. I think it looks pretty cool, but in all honesty, I have no chance in hell of getting it!
While getting this Master Prestige rewards is pretty cool you have to wonder if this is too late? Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII is nearly here so you have to wonder if players are going to bother sticking with Call Of Duty WWII to max out a character and get that elusive loot. This is surely something that is only for the most dedicated and hardcore of Call Of Duty WWII players.
Only Cosmetics Available For Purchase In Battlefield V
DICE recently held an AMA on Reddit where they shared some pretty interesting information about the upcoming Battlefield V that is released this October.
The most notable thing for me was the talk of monetization in Battlefield V. They flat out said that there will be monetization in Battlefield V, but that it will only be for cosmetics. I think that this is great news. In all honesty after the nightmare that DICE and EA had on their hands with Star Wars Battlefront II I am not surprised at all to see this more gentle stance on asking gamers for money!
The Tides Of War is the liver service that Battlefield V is going to be offering and many people, myself included are excited by this as DICE are saying all the right things. Each month from the sounds of it we will get a new narrative for the multiplayer and you will be either playing as the Allied or the Axis. They said during this AMA that there would be limited time events that would have gameplay twists, modes, and cosmetics. It sounds very similar to what Call Of Duty do with their community events only Tides Of War is going to be always running.
The more I hear about Battlefield V the more it sounds like EA are trying to right the wrongs that they attempted to do with Star Wars Battlefront II. Hopefully, Battlefield V is not going to get lost in the shuffle this October as there is a lot of big titles all coming out within a few weeks of each other.
Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII Mystery Box Edition Revealed
If you have already pre-ordered your copy of Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII you may want to reconsider as Activision have announced a super special edition called the Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII Mystery Box Edition and this thing is spectacular!
It is currently listed for 200 bucks and what I love about this special edition is that you get a good mix of physical and digital content. The physical content is just fantastic, for starters you get an actual Zombies Mystery Box which would look cool in any game room.
You also get some pins or as Activision are calling them fig pins which are pins of the Zombies characters. There is also a comic book from the guys at Dark horse which has an exclusive cover and apart from the Zombies Box is the thing I am most interested in.
A zombies puzzle, special edition lithographs, patches and of course the game itself and a steel book case are also included. I think for 200 bucks you are getting a lot of good stuff here and for collectors who love their physical items, this is one of the best collectors editions for a Call Of Duty game in years.
The only thing that is raising my eyebrows is that it says it has “additional digital content for Black Ops IIII fans” but it does not actually say what the heck this is! Is it the Black Ops Pass? I do not think it is, but I would like them to actually come out and say exactly what this is.
I know that collectors editions are not for everyone. But I do feel that the Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 Mystery Box Edition is giving you a lot of value for your money.
