During today's gameplay reveal for Activision and Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the team showed off a plethora of gameplay modes. The PvP is adding hero-shooter style mechanics via specialists, there are three new zombie campaigns, and the new Blackout taps the growing battle royale craze with a survival battle that features assets from the length of the Black Ops series of games. All of this comes with the confirmed caveat that there's no traditional single-player campaign in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
To supplement the lack of a campaign, the new Black Ops 4 specialists will have individual missions that explore their backgrounds and special skills. These other modes will also serve as the meat for the BO4 experience:
- Black Ops Zombie Mission: IX
- Black Ops Zombie Mission: Voyage of Despair
- Black Ops Survival Mode: Blackout
This tidbit of information was rumored back in mid-April, with the source stating the team is doubling down on multiplayer content. That was officially confirmed during the event when a dev quickly stated this on stage before showing a final montage of gameplay. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 arrives October 12, 2018, on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
