Every year, Activision releases a new Call of Duty game and fans of the franchise love it. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 revives the fan-favorite series, fully embracing its multiplayer success, while exploring new online modes such as "Zombies." A battle royale mode called "Blackout" is also part of the package.
Nuketown is an extremely popular Call of Duty map that has appeared in numerous games. The varied arena has been available to PlayStation 4 players for many days now, but it's finally playable for those on Xbox One and PC. If you own Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on either platform, you'll be prompted to download a roughly 10 GB patch which contains the map and brings other improvements.
The Cold War has never given visitors a warmer welcome.

Recently, Activision announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 set a new launch record for the publisher. The statement said the game "has set a new launch day record as the biggest day one digital release in Activision history. Digital sales for the first day of release broke the franchise record set in 2017 by Call of Duty: WWII... The title also quickly became the best-selling Activision Xbox One digital game on day one, globally. The first Call of Duty release ever on Blizzard's Battle.net, the PC version of Black Ops 4 also delivered a new franchise high in which launch day PC digital sales more than doubled year on year."
It's great to see the game doing this well. Beforehand, customers only had two main battle royale titles to choose from. Fortnite is technically solid, but the shooting mechanics are mediocre to say the least. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a more mature take, but it still riddled with bugs on consoles.
