Fall season means the biggest games, and it’s not much bigger than Activision’s annual Call of Duty franchise. This year, one of their most popular series of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is being re-visited. However, for the first time in the long-term franchise, one-player campaign is completely avoided in favor of more multiplayer modes and independent stories with each of its operators.
Reviews roll in and the conclusion from critics seems to be that the lack of a traditional campaign has not damaged the total package. Our own Black Ops 4 review showed that the three main modes were big enough to compensate, and the depth and breadth of the multiplayer deals kept the reviewer Kallie Plagge from losing the usual bombastic narrative situation. Read more about a range of critical answers, and take a look at GameSpots sister site Metacritic for more reviews from the entire industry.

“Black Ops 4 is not concise on the content, and its three main modes are great. Multiplayer introduces more tactical mechanics without force you into them, and it’s largely a good balance. Zombies has several deep, secretive maps for exploring, even though its remaining characters do not hold on and turn out to be distracting. Finally, Blackout’s Call of Duty pushes into a hero new direction, using aspects from both multiplayer and zombies to take on the slapped royal genres that are on its safe, there is no traditional single-player campaign, but with the depth and breadth of what’s available, black ops 4 does not need it . “- Kallie Plagge [Full review]
“Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 makes a victim sure will be detrimental to some with a lack of a campaign, but the delivery of tradition comes with sweeping and significant benefits. Blackout is the best battle-royal experience available today, zombies offer crazy custom co-op, and multiplayer keeps things founded for those looking for the classic core. “- Daniel Thank [Full review]
” I hope Treyarch and Activision see this as a new jump off point, with frequent updates to add new experiences and maps to Blackout and the other the positions. But we’ll see how much the conversation municipality appreciates what Treyarch has done. “- Dean Takahashi [Full review]
” This always seemed like the inevitable conclusion we encountered as Call of Duty fans. With the exception of the sidebar, Specialist HQ, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is an entirely social experience, and it stands out much stronger because of it. There is a necessary risk of making a Call of Duty game, which means that you are likely to commit to three full-fledged multiplayer modes. have longer legs than before. Quality campaign campaigns are always welcome in our Call of Duty Games, but if this is Treyarch’s new direction for the series, it works as well. ” Nick Plessas [Full review]
” Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 can not only work with the same business mentality from Activision, now that this step has been taken. Blackout has the potential to be an own game just as Epic demolished its Battle Royale mode from the main package as a separate device. Leave it to Treyarch to create a conference room after introducing a non-traditional project into fray. “- Chris Carter [Full review]
” While there is no revival of some of its predecessors, Call of Duty: Black Ops IV is properly designed, carefully polished and the best Call of Duty multiplayer excursion on year. “- Luke Winkie [Full review]
