Cod Blopout unearths the Blightfather, buries the 9-Bang

If fighting other humans doesn't challenge you enough in Blackout, or you fancy risking death for loot and funsies, you can now take on the Blightfather in Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4's battle royale mode. This hulking, goo-spewing boss from the game's Zombies mode is back in Blopout for one week, hanging around the graveyard itching for a fight and offering big prizes if…

Cod Blops 4 will soon add microtransactions

A plague of microtransactions has already descended on PS4 players of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4, who get everything seven days before everyone else because they're better than us. While PC folk won't have the option to throw more money at Blops until next week, we do now know what Activision are charging. It's a lot, but outside of Zombies mode money can only…

Feature: Blop till you drop

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 review

CODBLOPS: *snarls* Person: I’d... I’d like to shoot some people, please. CODBLOPS: *spits* HOW? HOW would you like to shoot people? Person: Well PUBG: *coughs* Person: Um CSGO: *also coughs* Person: Overwatch: Hi! Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 reminds of an ugly, angry man who’s trying to sell me guns. It’s not that I don’t want to buy those guns, I just wish the…

Cod Blops 4 fiddles with Blackout player counts

How many boppers would Blackout ops rock if Cod Blops could rock lots? Well, that depends on the mode. Following the launch of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 last week, developers Treyarch are still fiddling with its flagship battle royale mode, Blackout, and yesterday tweaked playercounts. Four-player squads have gone down from the classic Plunkbut count of 100 players to 88, while the duo…

Treyarch are working on a fix for Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4’s emote peeking

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 may have its differences from its many predecessors, most notably its inclusion of Battle Royale mode Blackout, but it’s still a first-person shooter at its core. Except, players have been using emotes to activate a third-person view, giving them a good look around them and potentially an advantage over their opponents. Treyarch say they’re already working on a fix.

Tick tock it’s Cod o’clock, time to get Blopped

The falling of the leaves heralds the launch of a new Call Of Duty game, but things are different from the usual routine with Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4. Its launch overnight came a month earlier than usual, for starters, but most notably this Cod doesn't have a singleplayer campaign. Cod Blops 4 also jumps on the battle royale bandwagon with its 'Blackout' mode,…

Feature: "I’m never worried"

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 devs on balancing Blackout battle royale mode

There's a new Call Of Duty around the corner. Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out on October 12th, so I sat down with Treyarch's studio design director David Vonderhaar and Jason "Director of Zombies" Blundell to quiz them about the game's new battle royale mode, Blackout, why they've left regenerating health behind, and how they handled no longer making a singleplayer campaign mode.

Cod Blops 4 reducing timed exclusivity for post-launch content, but not removing it

Activision have announced that they'll stop being absolute gits brandishing birds akimbo at Call Of Duty's PC players, and settle for merely flicking a single V at us while blowing raspberries. After years of DLC being exclusive to one console or another for thirty days (hitting PC and the other after that absurd delay), they now say that post-launch content for Call Of Duty: Black…

Right now, anyone with a Battle.net account can download the Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout beta, due to open tomorrow at 10am Pacific (6pm BST).

The Call of Duty: Blackops 4 battle royale PC beta goes live later this week

I didn't have much interest in Call Of Duty: Blackops 4 or its battle royale mode, but then it whipped out a grappling hook. The PC beta doesn't open until September 15th, but it might be worth taking a peek at other people playing before you decide if it's worth downloading. Fortunately, the internet is awash with streams from the PS4 beta.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4’s new trailer extends a an olive branch to the high-end PC crowd

As twitchy as the Call Of Duty games have been since Modern Warfare, the series has built up a reputation as a console flagship series. Publisher Activision seem eager to break away from that impression with Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4, and to prove this, they've packed their Gamescom 'PC trailer' with as many buzzwords and high-end hardware concessions as possible. Blops 4 may…

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC weekend open beta now preloading

You are cordially invited to click on faces until they burst in a shower of blood this weekend in the open beta test for Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4, which officially starts tomorrow (or today for narcs who pre-order) and has already started pre-loading. The beta packs six modes and six maps. The cooperative Zombies mode isn't in this beta and nor's the new…

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC open beta coming in August

We'll get to try the near-future face-shooting of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 in a free multiplayer open beta weekend in August, developers Treyarch have announced. No, this won't include that new battle royale mode, Blackout. As a casual observer of Cod I am sorry to see the antics of wallrunning and jetpacking removed this year, though it does have a grappling hook gun…

If you want any Cod Blops 4 DLC maps, you’ll need to buy the whole season pass

While many big multiplayer games are stepping away from paid DLC in favour of other ways to fund new content updates, Activision are doubling down on playerbase-splitting map packs. The publishers have revealed that Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4's dozen post-launch maps will only be sold in the £30 season pass, not sold in separate packs too as in previous years (and certainly not…

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has battle royale, no campaign

Battle royale is indeed coming to CoD in Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4, as had been rumoured, throwing together characters, weapons, and locations from across all the Blops - including the Zombies modes - in one big last-man-standing rumble. Activision today held their big reveal-o-rama event for this year's face-shooter, see, blabbing all sorts of details. They also confirmed the rumour that Cod Blops…

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 rumours: no campaign, and a battle royale mode

With a month to go until Activision start blabbing about Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4, the last annual sequel in their mega-blockbuster shooter series, the rumour mill is filling in the space. According to whispers on the wind, Cod Blops 4 won't have a traditional story campaign, scrapped because it wasn't going to be ready in time for the October launch, and will instead…

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 announced, due October 12th

Surprising absolutely nobody, Call of Duty is getting another game this year, and as per Activision's alternating annual release schedule, we're headed back to the Black Ops side-series. It's been too long since we've had a chance to use the most accursed of abbreviations, but Cod Blops is back, and possibly now the even more absurd Cod Blops IIII thanks thanks to the series apparently…

Feature: Do mention the war

Editorial: It’s great news that Call Of Duty is returning to World War 2

If the rumours are true, and they most likely are, this year we'll be seeing Call Of Duty: WWII. People have reacted with concern, but I'm here to argue it's the best possible news. There was a time when learning a game was set in World War II was deserving of the heaviest of sighs. Not only did it mean that it would be one…

Feature: It's brighter and more colourful than you realise

Have You Played… Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's multiplayer is fun. I know, right? You're waiting for the but, in which I'm going to remind you that its willy-waving jingoism is uncomfortable, its level design is brown and dull, its killstreaks reward the best players…
