  • Secret Maps Showed Off Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Launch Trailer

    The launch trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 came out today. I mean, the game is out on October 12, 2018 so having a launch trailer now isn't exactly out of the ordinary.

    It's a launch trailer. It shows off some scenes of action, it has some voice over work, and the like. Since Black Ops 4 doesn't have a single player campaign, you really don't have to worry about seeing any spoilers here, so that's a plus, right?

    However, there are still some secrets hidden in the trailer. Charlie INTEL notes that the launch trailer gives you a little look at two previously unannounced multiplayer maps.

    In the trailer, starting at the 0:36 second mark and the 0:40 second mark, there appears to be new MP Maps shown in action. One of the maps appears to be along a river, while the other is with blue buildings.

    They continue on to note that there still isn't clear details on how many maps there will be in Black Ops 4 at launch. At present, there seems to be 11 maps announced, four of which are old maps repurposed for Black Ops 4. Plus, there is also the Black Ops 4 version of Nuketown which will be released for free in November. So, I guess that would be five old maps and seven actually new maps.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out on October 12. It includes the Blackout battle royale mode, competitive multiplayer, and three Zombie campaigns. The game starts at $60 (USD).

      Did you try Blackout Mr. Zips? In terms of BR games, it really hit the spot for me and I suspect that (like previous Blops (possibly excepting Blops 3)) that this will stay populated with PC players far longer than the usual dies-after-new-year CoD experience.

      Was quite interested in the MP more than usual too, given the higher TTK... no doubt I'll get bored of the regular MP by December per the norm though.

      I did indeed try it for a little bit alongside my friends that I typically play PUBG with. The general consensus is that we just didn't care for Blackout. There was just something about the general feeling that wasn't great. It was still far too arcadey for my liking. The inventory menu felt like a mess. The lack of free look sucked. The draw/view distance sucked. Really, the only stuff that I liked was the automatic adding of attachments but even that felt finicky and was obviously super arcadey.

      Don't get me wrong, I like arcadey. I really enjoyed Realm Royale the couple of times I played it, but this just did not feel all that great. It didn't feel $60 great to be more precise. I haven't cared for CoD multiplayer for years now, never got into the Zombies since my regular gaming friends never get the CoD games, and without a single player campaign, I've no reason to get this one at all.

    Quick TGN E3 2018 Wrap Up

    E3 was last week and I do believe the dust has finally settled. I decided, for my own sanity really, to try to take things a bit slower this year with getting news up from the event. This was...
