We live in a generation where online games are constantly looking for ways to expand their audience. One of these ideas is to organize free days with a specific title. This practice has been used for several years, and Activision chose to use it this time. The company announced that users of the PC, PS4 and Xbox One will be able to use the free trial of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on January 17th. In particular, this is one of the game modes – Blackout. This is Battle Royale and Call of Duty and one of the most important changes in last year's series. At the same time, blackout is a direct competition for games like Fortnite and PUBG, and the latter has already surpassed popularity.
Blackout is a Battle Royale mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. As of January 1
7, we can test it for free PS4, Xbox One and PC
The The idea of blackout is about the same as in PUBG and Fortnite. 100 people land on a huge map – each starting with zero gear and collecting on the way to eliminate everyone else as the battlefield systematically shrinks. Just as in the immortal with Christopher Lambert – only one can stay. Of course we can use vehicles: land, air and water. What differentiates blackout from such, for example PUBG, is the fact that this mode was created under 60 FPS on Xbox One and PS4. After trying blackout, it may be difficult to return to the PUBG console. You can even see it in the way you pick up items.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4: Not much to be expected
Of course, Blackout also differs from the standard Call of Duty. There are so many unique perks and special abilities that work as to-use items, as well as additional equipment from well-known specialists (such as barricades or climbing anchors). The card is also occasionally inhabited by zombies, so there is no PvE element on either PUBG or Fortnite (with a small exception). Treyarch has also released an update for PS4 and Xbox One (which will soon be available on the PC) to enhance the multiplayer experience. Additionally, it introduces a mode of challenges (but only for PS4) that is divided into rounds (gauntlets) with a modifier Unsinkable for the Zombies mode and new potions. The patch requires 10.83 GB for PS4 and 14.79 for Xbox One. The full list of changes can be found here
