This weekend we’ll get the first taste of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, with an exclusive open Alpha becoming available on PlayStation 4.
It’s somewhat short notice but Call of Duty: Black Ops IV is getting a bunch of new (paid-for, let’s not get too excited) content in the shape of Operation: Apocalypse Z. The new add-on, as the title suggests, brings more than its fair share of the shambling dead to Activision’s online shooter.
Rather than a collection of jagged angles that require reflexes that aren’t as sharp as they used to be, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a gorgeous rendition of the game world we know and love. The devs have improved everything from visuals to lighting, dropping in customisation and online play to update this classic to something modern audiences may find a lot more palatable.
Call of Duty series is all about making as much cash for Activision’s shareholders as possible. Hence, all the microtransactions. And since Fortnight and PUBG have mobile versions, it was only a matter of time before Call of Duty Mobile appeared.
If you’re curious about Activision’s take on battle royale, the Blackout mode found in Black Ops IV, but haven’t yet taken the financial plunge, you’re in luck. Call of Duty: Black Ops IV, or a significant portion of it, is free-to-play for the rest of April. And not just on a platform or two, on all of them. Whether you’re a glorious PC gamer, a PlayStation acolyte or a filthy Xbox One spawn-camper, you can drop into Blackout for free for the rest of the month. Terms and Conditions apply.
Okay, okay, so there’s hasn’t any sort of backlash against this new announcement but we had to take a shot at Activision after what happened during the announcement of Diablo Immortal. Acti has revealed Call of Duty Mobile, a smartphone-focused title designed to take on the likes of PUBG and Fortnite on Android and iOS. Because if those folks can release successful smartphone shooters, so can Activision. Right?
