Activision pulled back the curtains on developer Treyarch’s latest entry into the popular Black Ops spinoff series in the Call of Duty franchise during a preview event in Los Angeles yesterday. While the franchise rose to the top of the video game mountain on the back of Infinity Ward, Treyarch’s entries into the series have steadily gained popularity and acclaim to the point where they are now considered the Call of Duty “A-Team”. Black Ops 4 plans to be the biggest and baddest entry in series history thanks to the addition of all new mechanics and a fresh lineup of hand tuned weapons and attachments.
As you’ve come to expect, Shacknews had a street team of its top boys at the Black Ops 4 preview event. They all got first-hand looks at the game in action and Shacknews editor (and world’s best kisser) Ozzie Mejia took the time to write up his impressions of everything that Black Ops is bringing to the table in 2018.
Black Ops 4 will be touching down October 12 for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. PC players should take note that Black Ops 4 will be arriving via Blizzard’s Battle.net launcher rather than Steam this year.
