Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will feature the series’ ubiquitous Zombies mode, as well as revealing that the dev team is giving a fair bit of extra love to the PC port of the incoming shooter game.
It’s not entirely clear what we can expect in terms of gameplay from the mode, but fans should expect plenty of the typical tropes and core gameplay. So shambling zombies and other more dangerous enemies, a trove of puzzles and other challenges, and of course the requisite weird and over-the-top humor.
While speaking on an earnings call this past week, Activision Blizzard CEO Coddy Johnson revealed some more details about how the company is approaching the continuation of the Call of Duty franchise.
And it’s a most important last point, which is that this is a game that’s not going to just build on our strengths. It will continue to push the envelope in innovation. You’ll see that in the core game itself, where we have a number of new exciting developments to roll out very soon, but also in the game’s appeal on growth platforms like PC, where we’ve invested significant dedicated resources and design time to make sure we can deliver a great PC game to serve that community.
And just in case you’re wondering, not that rumor about getting rid of a singleplayer campaign to focus on a Battle Royale mode isn’t confirmed as of yet. But there is more information coming about the Zombie mode at E3 this year. According to a tweet from an E3 Twitter account, which you can find below, we’ll get to see more details and probably gameplay for the upcoming cooperative mode.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be released on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on October 12, with a full reveal coming on May 17.
