One of the big selling points of every year for the Call of Duty games is the single-player campaign mode. Usually they are brimming with Hollywood-inspired backdrops and exaggerated action. Well, for this year's iteration of Call of Duty there are rumors that there may not be a single player campaign mode.
Polygon reports that sources close to the project have shown that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is not released with a standard single-player campaign mode. The rumors indicate that Treyarch's developers were unable to complete the single-player story mode for the game in time, so Activision decided to abandon zombie mode and multiplayer.
If the rumors are true, then it would mean that this is the first Mainline Call of Duty game delivered without a traditional campaign mode. In addition, if Activision decided to send the game to $ 60 without a single-player mode, it would also mean a big change in the formula.
While some players have said developers need to improve single player mode, the reality is that there are still millions of players who play these games for single player campaign mode just as there are players who play the game play only for the multiplayer mode.
One of the Campaign Replacement Modes It is rumored that this is a Last-Man-Stand mode based on the current Battle Royale trend. This will be similar to the 100-player modes in PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds and Fortnite .
This does not seem unlikely, as Activision has typically tried to hold . Call of Duty fresh by tapping what is popular at this time.
For a short time, Call of Duty went on a futuristic rage, where every game was put into the future every year. This worked until Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare when the players got tired.
Of course, the most surprising element of this rumor is the possibility that the game renounces the single-player campaign. While some people do not like single-player mode, there are some players who only play Call of Duty for that reason.
It's also surprising because Treyarch's last outing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 ushered in a cooperative four-player campaign that was a big departure from the typical single-player campaign mode.
Then maybe that's the catch? Maybe it's not just a single player campaign, but a multiplayer campaign mode? It would be a risky game, but I think it would be much better than having no campaign mode at all.
However, such a maneuver would depend very much on the execution. Brink tried the multiplayer campaign mode, but it did not go that well.
If it's true that Black Ops 4 does not have a single-player campaign mode then it could be pretty exciting when it releases this fall. We'll find out exactly what it has in store when Activision makes a formal revelation next month on May 17.
