Call of Duty: Black Ops 4: test and review of an excellent multiplayer shooter

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which was presented almost 2 months ago, undoubtedly delights shooter fans. Although it was not included in the world ranking of games in 2018, it is impossible not to note the excellent graphics, the Dimming mode and the return of such NPCs as zombies. They simply inspire well-aimed shooting.

Activision seems to be really betting on multiplayer, and the new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 game has very little content for single players. The classic company, which used to be part of the gameplay, we will not see in the new game. Single players can get acquainted with specialists, that is, characters from the classic multiplayer mode, who have special abilities, in a short “training” campaign and fight with bots there.

For beginners, we recommend that you first familiarize yourself with the individual “classes” in order to figure out which specialists are best suited for their playing style. Each character has two unique abilities, for example, with Battery from time to time you can access cluster grenades and a grenade launcher. Such specific equipment is not always available, in each batch it is necessary to wait anew for the end of the cooldown.

Each of the ten specialists has their own abilities and, having chosen one of them, be prepared for the fact that the details of the game style for each of them will be different.

In addition, successful players will be able to organize massive attacks using remotely controlled missiles, stationary guns or combat robots, but for this, however, you will need the so-called “Scorestreak” (a series of points), that is, the player will have to continuously accumulate battle points. The more points you have, the more powerful your attack will be.

Classic multiplayer mode includes several types of games. Loyal fans of this series can take their souls in Free for all or Team Deathmatch modes, so that, inspired, go on a massive attack. Play in these modes is very exciting, they are very well designed. Maps are available in sufficient quantities; the developers have worked hard to create them. On each map there are free spaces, labyrinth buildings and bunkers, as well as several levels of height.

Since there are at least two paths to each point on the map, no player can create a completely protected shelter for himself. Constantly monitoring more than one entrance, preventing opponents from getting unnoticed, is a difficult task even for professionals. In addition to all of the above, you can play in Control, Domination, Hardpoint, Heis, Kill Confirmed and Search and Destroy modes. Here everyone will find something to their taste.

The newest and probably the most interesting feature of Black Ops 4 is the Blackout mode. It was created in the image of very popular games with the Battle Royale mode, among which PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite now rule. If you do not know what it is about, we explain in a nutshell: a hundred players with parachutes are dumped onto a huge map, which is divided into many zones that have their own characteristics.

Landing, they collect weapons, equipment, supplies and first-aid kits and enter into a fight to get out with each other. At certain intervals, the area of ​​the map that players can use is narrowing more and more. This means that if at the moment X you are on the very edge of the map, then you should hurry to move closer to the center, otherwise you will automatically fly out of the game. The longer the Royal Battle lasts, the closer the “surviving” players find themselves to each other, until there are only two opponents who are fighting for the crown.

Eclipse introduces a similar principle into the Call of Duty universe, and it must be said that it is implemented very well. Thus, those who prefer this mode will get with Black Ops 4 an excellent alternative for the best games of this type.

For fans of interaction in the game, the developer Treyarch offers the appropriate mode and returns once popular zombies.

In story campaigns, a player with three players or with three bots controlled by Artificial Intelligence will have to fight a crowd of undead. At the same time, in the center of the action is a character named Scarlett Rhodes, who determines the basis of the plot. Together with three friends, she wanders through ancient Rome or the Titanic, performing special tasks, experiencing exciting meetings with the boss, and the purpose of the storyline is to complete the script as well as possible for herself. In zombie mode, the foreground is the survival and use of available resources. In addition, this is the most flexible game mode in all of Black Ops 4. Here you can fight alone or enable split-screen mode (splitscreen) and test your skills. To summarize, note that the zombie mode is an exciting alternative for other equally interesting options for this multiplayer game.
