Games like Fortnite Battle Royale and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds have made their names because of their significant scale and the opportunity for incredible, emergent moments with that many players. Epic Games risked it all by making the game design "cartoonish" and it all worked out in the end! As for Zombies, there'll be three complete campaigns to play on day one, including the Ancient Roman setting of "XI", the Titanic-set "Voyage of Despair", and Black Ops II Mob of the Dead remaster, "Blood of the Dead", as well as difficulty levels, support for bots and the new Zombie Rush mode with new challenges and a "new tempo of gameplay for newcomers". The first Call of Duty: WWII beta ran between August 25-28 on PS4.

Activision held its big reveal event for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 yesterday, and this year's installment of Call of Duty looks to be changing things up big time. He said that the new battle royale mode called Blackout still has some big details to hammer down, including the player count.

Treyarch has confirmed that Black Ops 4 will not feature a single-player campaign. Indeed, it looks as though the Call of Duty franchise is finally evolving to catch up with other multiplayer games that have dominated the gaming conversation in recent years, and the first Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 trailers offer a look at what's in store for fans when the game is released on October 12th.

Treyarch will have to spend the time up to release to figure out how to balance the size demands from players with the technical demands to make that happen. Each of the game's Specialist characters feature unique abilities that can "be applied strategically across game modes".

There's also a new Mutation feature that lets you tinker with various attributes, including zombie speed and player damage. Nonetheless, Fortnite is still free to play while Black Ops 4 will probably cost around $50 and this guarantees that Black Ops 4 will never surpass Fortnite's user base.
