Every year, the unceasing refrain that Call of Duty is the same gets repeated like a dogmatic mantra. With Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Treyarch takes a big risk in removing a franchise staple – the single-player campaign – and embraces nothing but online multiplayer. The gamble pays off, as the title features more modes, settings, and ways to engage than any game in the series I can recall. The blazing new Blackout mode steals the zeitgeist of the battle royale’s thunder, packaging it in a polished, powerful entry to the burgeoning genre. If you’re willing to eschew single-player completely, the payoff is worth it.
Take on other players in a variety of multiplayer modes, co-op zombies encounters, or battle royale
Blackout’s environments draw from the very best of Treyarch’s Call of Duty games, and zombies opts for a more surreal, arcade look. It all works
Footsteps identify when other players are around, and contextual callouts in zombies mode let you know what’s important even if you’re not on voice chat
With modes and settings for everyone (except single-player fans), there’s no barrier to diving right into the fray if you’re willing to play online with others
Whatever you’re looking for in your online shooter, Black Ops 4 offers an impressive, highly enjoyable content suite that should keep you coming back for more
