Being riddled with lead has never looked so good
This week at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, Activision and Treyarch have been in full promotional mode, showing off their upcoming cash cow Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Two new trailers have been dropped this week. The first is a trailer designed to spotlight the PC version of the military shooter, that has been specifically designed to harness the tech of the platform, from both from a rig and a control standpoint. Whether you like CoD or not, it can’t be denied that the visuals on display here are top-grade, and will no doubt look splendid in 4K on fancy, ultrawide monitors.
The second trailer features Black Ops 4 gameplay in real-time, as a squad of gung-ho mercs take to the all-new map, Arsenal, to play a round of the territory-staking multiplayer mode, Hardpoint. I must say, everyone seems to be doing a helluva lot better than I did when I hit the beta a few weeks back.
Speaking of Betas, don’t forget that the Blackout beta is headed to all platforms next month, and will be open to all those who have pre-ordered the game.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launches October 12 on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
