    As of 10AM Pacific Time this morning, BO4 has been revealed.


    What are your thoughts?

    I don’t think I’ll be getting this on launch, BUT maybe I would a long ways down the road.

    Pros:
    Holy hell, they are brining back Mob of the Dead with the original four zombies characters (WWI Timeline). I so hope it is the FULL island. I know back in the day when MOTD was being made they had made all of Alcatraz island but had to scale it down because the 360 and PS3 couldn’t handle how big the map was.
    I really like the idea of having to choose to heal. Much more tactical.
    Thank god that there is no wall-running or jet packs.
    Three zombies maps is great.
    Having zombies with over 100 modifiers in terms of health and zombie behavior is smart for sure.
    The operators’ tools showcased seemed interesting and the idea of customizing weapons with operator-specific attachments seems tactical.
    The whole Battle Royale mode callbacks to Reznov, Woods, and Mason, the zombies crews, and actually using vehicles (first time we’ve got proper vehicles in a CoD game since WaW).

    Cons:
    No campaign. I know people don’t play CoD for the campaign anymore, but damn it if people didn’t enjoy WaW and BO1 for their campaigns. Again, they made these callbacks to characters that were super well-written like Reznov and Woods, so they are more than capable of making a quality campaign.
    The new zombie characters at first glance seem sort of “eh” to me.
    I wish they would have shown more of the map layouts for multiplayer. Concerned if the maps will be too small.
    While I’m glad that they are not doing wall running and discount Titanfall jump jets, I wish we would be in a modern setting as opposed to a futuristic one. I admit though that is notion is ALL preference.
    Not sure why they are trying out spawn beacons (reminiscent of Battlefield) and deplorable barbed wire (reminiscent of R6 Siege), but maybe it will help mix up the flow.
    Battle Royale mode, nostalgia aside. I know it works in CoD online (the Chinese version of CoD), so it could probably work here too. I’m just kind of saddened that this is what might have taken away the opportunity for making a campaign that could live up to WaW or BO1.

    Very happy that they revealed so much about the game, it was kinda needed tbh. Everything about the game looks VERY promising, hopefully their BR mode doesn't suck ***.

    I'm only starting to watch the reveal now, I didn't even realise the reveal was today. I'm at the part where they confirm that Black Ops 4 is boots on the ground which is good, yet I must say it feels like to me so far that they're revealing more than they usually do. I like how they've developed weapons to make them more realistic, it'd be nice to be able to master weapons with skill & not just pure luck.

    I'll update or reply if anything totally stands out to me.

    No announced mod tools so this game can sit in the never-gonna-buy pile.

    Updated the OP with all my pros and cons.
    Hopefully indeed. Hopefully it really is all their own and has its own feel. Implementing vehicles seems like a good idea. I really missed the tank combat that was in WaW and I doubt I’m the only one that remembers how vehicles used to play more of a part in CoD.
    For sure. Hopefully the weapons all do feel different in that it takes practice to Git Gud with each particular weapon.

    I haven't watched it yet, I want to and I don't want to. Will I be disappointed if I watch it?

    I didn't like Black Ops 3, too much jumping around and running on walls to have fun. Kinda ruined the game for me.
    I'm hoping it's more like WWII as I really enjoy that. Best Call Of Duty I've played.

    But, a lot of people are hyped up for it and I can see why.

    I highly doubt it'll be anything like WWII, so don't get your hopes up lol.

    If WWII is the best CoD you’ve played, that’s rough. Don’t get me wrong, I think it is good, but not great. Sometime go back and try out WaW, CoD 4, and BO1.
    I agree. I don’t want to spoil the reveal for you, but I will say that it has some elements of BO3, but not all of them :wink:
    Yeah, definitely not like WWII except aside from maybe the pace of combat in some ways.

    It seems really good. I have seen some gameplay of it and the graphics look so good! The battle royal mode is going to be insane since it is 1,500 times bigger than Nuketown and has helicopters, cars, and water vehicles. I also saw that it has ropes to climb and go down buildings. If you already hate the game then you should not even play games at all because you MUST give games a chance to be a real gamer. Bo4 is going to be sweet with it being boots on the ground and most of the stuff from bo3 will be in it.

    You make a good point here. It is always good to try something before you knock it. However, given how personal gaming preferences can be, I can see how some gamers over the years can be good at knowing what they themselves will dislike. A good example would be of how I played and enjoyed parts of Destiny, but I knew I wouldn’t like Destiny 2 upon reviewing gameplay etc. I do agree though that these sort of people immediate avoidances of a particular game should be done with caution. I never thought I would enjoy the Souls series as much as I do until I saw gameplay and tried it out.

    Multiplayer looks the same. I'll probably buy it but it doesn't look innovative from what i've seen. Hopefully the battle royale is decent.

    You could probably just not buy it to get the same point across. Sort of like how I went about Destiny 2. I watched tons of videos on it and made the decision to just not go for it. Friends of mine kept trying to get me on there, but now even they admit it wasn't what they hoped it would turn into.

    I'm pretty sure they showcased some type of grenade in the multiplayer reveal trailer.

    It's probably one of the better reveals to date, it helped show us more of what we can expect from the game. However as Adolfin said they kind of had to show us so much in the initial reveal to even get us interested. I look forward to seeing more about this game in the coming future, hopefully this will be good one - granted, I am not holding my breath.
