PlayStation Live from E3 2018 watched a demo of Treyarch’s forthcoming Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and linking the demonstration was David Vonderhaar from Treyarch to explain some of the characteristics players will get to see when the game launches.
We’re shown some multiplayer in-game footage start, and also Vonderhaar describing that the developers have taken the Experts they began at Call of Duty Black Ops 3 and reconstructed or reimagined them with Specialists being a main focus of this game. It’s today more strategic with matches now being 5v5 rather than 6v6.
Vonderhaar clarifies that many features are still likely to be intact, like wild cards and attachments, but the Specialists bring another playing style which may slow the speed of this match. Matches may also only let one Specialist form per team and healing is its mechanic today. A medic class enables players to heal others at the game with players currently being accountable for when they cure instead of the auto-regeneration we’re employed too in previous titles. Rather than having 100% health, players will also have 150 percent health as standard.
The Select 10 system is returning and will offer “super chunky choices” –as Vonderhaar decided to describe them as– through a new class called Gear that will allow high powered gear like armor, stem packsand more to become equipped. You’ll also be able to assign attachments that are unique to every weapon instead of having attachments that are universal to every weapon in this game.
Blackout and the new Zombies are also mentioned but not much was revealed about it due to Treyarch wanting to disclose details at a later date. We do understand some details regarding the Battle Royale trend Blackout, along with facts regarding Zombies. You can watch the whole movie below and see how the game appears in addition to hearing what Vonderhaar has to say.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will soon be coming on Xbox One, PC, also PS4 around October 12th.
