In fact, a whole $5 cheaper than $50 at AUD$44.95. Call of Duty: Black Ops IV Battle Edition gives PC gamers the base multiplayer offering plus Battle Royale mode, Blackout, at a decent price and is operated through Battle.net.
Basically, this is a discounted version of the game that doesn't include Zombies mode.
The Black Ops 4 Battle Edition offers the full Multiplayer and Blackout experiences, and is compatible with all existing copies and online lobbies for those modes on PC. For fans interested in getting their hands on even more, an upgrade to the Digital Standard Edition on PC – includes Zombies mode, 1,100 Call of Duty Points and Digital Edition bonus items – will also be available for purchase.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Multiplayer features gritty, grounded combat in the most tactical, team-based experience in the Black Ops series. 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.
Black Ops 4 also features 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 such as Mason, Reznov and Woods; Zombies characters such as Richtofen and Takeo; and Specialists such as Crash, Battery and Seraph, to name a few. Across the sprawling Blackout map – the largest in Call of DutyÒ history – players will fight in locations inspired by fan-favourite maps like Nuketown, Firing Range, Raid, Cargo and more.
The release of the Battle Edition kicks-off a packed December calendar featuring themed holiday events, new personalisation items, and a variety of free content coming to players. The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Edition is available exclusively on the Battle.net Shop at a special introductory price of $44.95 AUD now through January 7, 2019 in ANZ, after which the price becomes $59.95 AUD. Zombies mode is not included in the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Edition.
The multiplayer is a veritable "Best of" map pack for previous Treyarch Call of Duty outings, while Blackout remains a lauded triumph in the Battle Royale space. So if yuo haven't jumped in yet, this could be a good place to start.
