Black Ops 4

Turned off after 20 mins. Looks the exact same as Blops 3. I did enjoy Blops 3 but after 3 years I at least hoped it would look better. The graphics are so dated on COD now.

Been playing BF1 this week and the graphics/sounds are lightyears ahead of COD.
There's no boosting and wall running so not the same as Black Ops 3.

It'll be interesting to see how they get the Battle Royale mode to work. This mode has obviously been influenced by Fortnite and the way it's taking over the world.

They said they are putting there own spin on it. Which is good, rather than copy and paste other BR games. The maps made up of previous maps and locations all inside one big map, characters, weapons etc from previous games in it to. Looking like a lot of customization as well.

Also multiplayer is 5v5 not 6v6 it seems.

Loads of multiplayer gameplay videos on YouTube now from the usual people. Got to say, the more I watch, the more I like. Certainly looks better than WW2 and one thing I have noticed is the time to kill is longer now, which is good.

You can also see other players health bars and you now have to press L2 to regain health.

I have seen numerous comments that the plan for this was going to be a complete Overwatch knock off. But every single tester hated it. So a mad dash change over is happening to make it more like old COD games. And this is the reason there is no single player campaign

So it seems any innovation was put back to how it was. And given this mad dash started in March this screams of what happened with Infinity War. And thus this will likely be bad....

They really need to start releasing these games once every 2 years. Getting to rank level 1000 in a year is pretty much impossible unless you literally spend your every waking moment on the game.

I have seen last week an announcement there wont be a season pass for BO4. So they have already done it.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Won't Have A Season Pass

But with Activision, if they are doing that. It will likely mean they are syphoning money some other way, most likely the maps will be in loot boxes or something. Which I would not put past them.

Am lucky if I manage 6-10 hours in a month now for gaming, same be said for most of the A2A lads, dont think i have touched COD since Jan time this year (recently fired back up the machine) been playing mafia3, detroit and Wildlands - TV boxsets, the missus, dog and now new car club with all the events ( I rarely get time)

So much for a free season pass like Battlefield 5. You get the Black Ops Pass only if you buy one of the premium editions of the game.

Urgh, why Activision?? Just let people have it for free. I personally struggle to afford spending £40 on a game when I have 2 young kids, so no way I can spend £50 plus on a premium version.

For me I wouldn't want the season pass even if I could get it. I have realized fully with WW2, all the scrubby wasters get the season pass. So you need to fight non stop people running around with the M1897 Trench gun on and with Requisitions perks with chopper gunner, fire bombing and carpet bombings on non stop every single game making the game absolutely no fun whatsoever, and making getting the crappy guns like the Bren to diamond a real pain in the backside like you will not believe.

Plus this game, they knew people will realize this, so they have forced you once you have the season pass to not even be allowed to pay the game without the map pack installed as the maps become part of the patches that you need to install to go online. And you then get streamlined off into your own playlist with all the other map packers and those people without it get their own playlist by themselves avoiding those wasters entirely and just having fun.

Its like you are paying more money to have less fun by playing with idiots who are the scrubbiest players on the whole planet earth and who never ever go for the objective. They just think Domination is run around trying to max out your kills just to get the requisition perks up and who cares if the other team wins.

I really don't want to buy another season pass for any COD game as a result of this.

So the only way to get the new map pack on Black Ops 3 (the 4 remastered maps, Slums, Jungle, Firing Range and Summit) is by pre ordering Black Ops 4, the digital version.

Honestly, Activision are just a joke of a company. So many other companies at E3 were announcing free content ect, yet noooo Activision are now putting a map pack for a 3 year old game behind a pay wall.

Really does beggar belief

They know the game has been slaughtered in the press so they are panicking and trying to force people to pre-order.

If you remember though they have made these same claims in the past about the nuketown map and there is a window available for a short while to get the pre-order version on the day of release as stores will have both the pre-order version and the standard one mixed together on the shelves. This game also wont sell as well as black ops 2 and 3.

So bloody annoying though as really loved those maps and would of enjoyed playing them on Black Ops 3.

Was hoping you could do what you usually do when pre-ordering a game, put the order in but you don't pay until it is sent.

Yet Activision are only doing the map pack via a digital download, PlayStation take the money straight away. Really is a scummy move this time.

Someone from Reddit has some info on the new Blackout mode

Rumor: New info regarding Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode shared on Reddit

A Reddit user has posted some unconfirmed info surrounding Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode, the all the new Battle Royale mode coming, on the Black Ops 4 subreddit today.

Thus far, details on the mode have been limited as Treyarch has not fully unveiled the gameplay or feel of the mode beyond the original teaser back in May.

A new leak (unconfirmed as of now) posted on Reddit provides some additional info on the Battle Royale mode.

Here is what was posted by the user on Reddit:

  • Largest map in Call of Duty history, but lots of focus on verticality. As seen in the teaser, the map features pieces of iconic maps from previous games. Nuketown is located in the middle of the map as an island, surrounded by water, set after the nuke is dropped. The layout and theme of Nuketown in Blackout is similar to that of Nuketown Zombies from Black Ops 2.
  • Aiming for at very least 50 players, currently testing 64 players right now with plans to increase if possible.
  • Health is 150HP, replenished via scavengable Medical Kits. Equipping scavenged Armor allows the player to take 1 extra shot, Armor Piercing Rounds will counter the effect of Armor.
  • Limited Inventory slots, increased space via scavenged Backpacks.
  • Weapon loot has rarity, depending on the rarity your weapon will have different attachments (Higher Rarity = Better/More Attachments). *Subject to change, there are currently talks about attachments being scavenged rather than rarity-dependent.
  • Consumable abilities such as the Multiplayer Specialist Abilities. For example, Torque’s Portable Barricade with 1x use, Ruin’s Grapple Hook with limited uses, and Nomad’s Dog which can be commanded to follow the player or guard an area.
  • Equipment such as the Recon RC, an RC-XD without explosives, can be scavenged and give the player an advantage. Currently, a Monkey Bomb equipment which doesn’t explode can be found, likely a placeholder for a Decoy Grenade.
  • Land, air, and sea vehicles as seen in the teaser. The ATV is the only fully-functioning vehicle in the current build.
  • The Storm/Gas mechanic is currently a simple visible wall that closes in on the map.
  • While players simply parachute into the map. *Subject to change, talks of moving to a spawn-in system similar to Call of Duty: Online are happening.

where can i get a beta code from? do amazon take payment straight away
No mate, I have always used Amazon to get a beta code. They only take payment when the game is sent out. So try the beta, then cancel the pre order and no money would of been taken.
