Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 comes out this week and it will be the first game in the franchise to not include a solo campaign mode.
Instead, developers have focused on multiplayer gameplay including its first Battle Royale mode – Blackout.
The new mode will use the Black Ops combat style but has players fighting on a map with various vehicles and weapons while trying to be the last survivor.
There will be some solo missions but most players will be drawn to the new Battle Royale experience as well as the main multiplayer gameplay and the classic Zombies mode.
