Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Available Now Worldwide

Black Ops4 is here! The best-selling series
in Call of Duty® returns with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
available now, digitally and at global retailers worldwide. The most
anticipated multi-platform game of this holiday according to Nielsen
Game Rank™, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 delivers a
game-changing experience with more ways to play together with friends
than ever before.

“Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is packed with an amazing array
and a massive amount of content across Multiplayer, Zombies and
Blackout, and the launch marks just the beginning of an incredible
journey ahead,” said Rob Kostich, EVP and GM, Call of Duty. “When you
pick up a Black Ops game, you know you have something you are
going to play for a really long time, but Black Ops 4
takes that to an entirely new level. The team’s commitment is clear – no
matter what kind of player you are, there is a ton of content to be
enjoyed, and there is even more to come for everyone in the community. Black
Ops 4 is unlike anything Treyarch has ever created and we think fans
are going to have a blast.”

“We revealed playable Multiplayer earlier than ever, put in more Zombies
available on day one than any other game, held two Betas, and along the
way the response from the Black Ops community has been nothing
short of incredible,” said Dan Bunting, Co-Studio Head, Treyarch. “Our
mission was to build a game from the ground up that allowed fans to have
fun together and play with one another in new ways – that’s just what we
did, and the launch of Black Ops 4 is just the start. This
is a game that we plan to support for the long haul.”

“The ambition driving the studio’s efforts doesn’t end there, however;
in fact, it’s been a colossal endeavor: from creating a signature take
on battle royale with Blackout, to going all-out on PC with Beenox and
working with Blizzard to bring the game to Battle.net for the first
time, we pushed ourselves more than any game we’ve ever made. We feel
that says something and we believe that it shows,” said Mark Gordon,
Co-Studio Head, Treyarch. “We’ve been developing Black Ops games
for ten years now, and I’ve never seen the studio create anything on
this scale before.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 features three distinct modes of
play: Multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout. Multiplayer features gritty,
grounded combat in the most tactical, team-based experience in the Black
Ops series to date. It features the return of the iconic Pick 10
system, along with a series of innovations in weapon controls, combat
flow, health regeneration, and player movement. Black Ops 4
also features a combination of new and returning Specialists, each with
their own unique equipment and playstyles, allowing players to not only
be powerful alone, but devastating as a team working together.

Celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the original Call of Duty
Zombies, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 debuts
an entirely new Zombies experience that is the biggest Day One offering
in franchise history, with three fully-featured Zombies experiences at
launch – IX, Voyage of Despair and Blood
of the Dead. With the most customizable action to date, the mode
introduces new systems for creating and completing community challenges,
and social systems designed to connect players.
Call of Duty:Black Ops 4 introduces
Blackout, an all-new Battle Royale mode that brings together characters,
locations, weapons and gear from across the series in all-out survival
combat, all with Black Ops signature gameplay. Blackout features
land, sea and air vehicles, and offers a variety of new and
classic playable characters, including campaign characters like Mason,
Reznov and Woods; Zombies characters like Richtofen and
Takeo; and Specialists like Crash, Battery and Seraph,
to name a few. Across the sprawling Blackout map – the largest in Call
of Duty history – players will fight in locations inspired by
fan-favorite maps like Nuketown, Firing Range, Raid, Cargo and
more.

The release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 also heralds the
biggest season to date in Call of Duty esports with $6 million in total
season prizing on the line. The Call of Duty World League will get
underway with the first open LAN event of the new season, Dec. 7–9, in
Las Vegas. For more information, visit CallofDuty.com/CWL.
