CALL of Duty is officially set to return with Black Ops 4 in October this year — and it will feature the series’ traditional multiplayer modes, multiple Zombie modes and a Battle Royal mode called Blackout. It will, however, NOT feature a single-player campaign.
The next Call of Duty game is probably going to be released by Treyarch this year
Call of Duty 2018 release date – when is Black Ops 4 out?
The global launch will be on October 12, 2018 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC via Battle.net.
Call of Duty 2018 Community Event – what was revealed?
The game will be set “between Black Ops II and Black Ops III” – so some time in the near future.
The debut multiplayer trailer showed off a mix of familiar-looking modern weapons and advanced technology, such as auto-building barricades, assault-rifle size flamethrowers and some brutal-looking melee weapons.
These weapons will feature a new modding system, and a whole new class of mod that will change the way weapons operate and reward players who invest time learning a particular weapon.
The weapon attachment system has been overhauled, with operator mods fundamentally altering the way weapons work
Health has been totally overhauled for Black Ops IIII, and recovery needs to be triggered manually
Black Ops 4 will also feature a couple of changes that will have a major impact on gameplay — fog of war and healing.
Healing will no longer be automatic – Black Ops 4 will require players to use a dedicated button to start the healing process, and render themselves vulnerable. There is also a medic class who will be able to heal other players and even boost their maximum health.

Will Call of Duty Black Ops 4 have a Fortnite-like Battle Royal Mode?
Yes. It will feature “the most iconic parts” of previous Black Ops Maps, mashed up into one enormous map.
The mode, called Blackout, will also feature playable characters and weapons from the series’ zombie modes.
Call of Duty 2018 zombies – will there be a zombie mode in Black Ops 4?
Oh yes. They are an “essential part” of the Black Ops experience, according to Treyarch.
The developer says it’s gone back to the drawing board for Black Ops 4’s zombie mode, ten years after it first appeared in Call of Duty: World at War.
Zombies are back… and as terrifying as ever
The trailer shows the players making very short work of the undead in pleasingly visceral ways
All-new player characters will be facing off against a new enemy.
The Community Reveal trailer showed off the player characters as Roman gladiators facing off in a giant arena against a horde of zombies, and then watching a slave be transformed into a giant zombie.
A second zombie experience set on the Titanic called A Voyage of Despair is also promised.
Fan-favourite Mob Of the Dead is also set to return ad Blood of the Dead, bringing the total to three zombie “experiences”promised for launch.
