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.
Today, Activision and Treyarch announced the new season of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 content called "Operation Apocalypse Z." Operation Apocalypse Z unleashes the hordes of undead in all game modes. Fans will find exciting new ways to play, including multiplayer maps and modes, a new Zombies experience, eerie changes throughout the Blackout map, and more weapons.
It's going to be available on PlayStation 4 tomorrow, but Xbox One owners will have to wait roughly a month due to the exclusivity agreement between Activision and Sony.
In our review, we said, "Sacrifices had to be made, but the gamble of chopping off a short single-player campaign to focus on multiplayer modes that will offer many more hours of fun has paid off."
Call of Duty has never been this good.
Bottom line: Black Ops 4 is the best Call of Duty game in years and deserves to be on your radar.
