AusGamers was recently given early access to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 by way of a traditional review event. What we walked away with, was a sense the series has finally made a triumphant return, and once again it's happened at the hands of Treyarch.
Our man on the ground, Toby Berger, spent countless hours across the games numerous modes and fell in love with all of them, all but forgetting there used to be a campaign in there somewhere too, but that with this much option it really just doesn't matter.
The omission of a traditional single-player campaign was surprising when it was initially announced earlier this year, but in its place is something that I found to be of much more value: Blackout. Call of Duty’s take on the Battle Royale genre is different enough to make it not feel like a direct rip of PUBG or Fortnite, and instead manages to find a balance between the hardcore, militarised focus of the former with the arcade-like nature of the latter.Click here for our in-depth Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 review.
