The trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout game mode has arrived. Watch it above.
Just like the other battle royale modes that precede it, Blackout promises to be utter chaos. Players drop in one place, battling to see who will be the last player standing. In the trailer, we see car chases, boat battles mixed in with some air combat, then zombies emerge at one point.
Various locations of the Blackout map were featured in the trailer, demonstrating their scale and verticality. Publisher Activision and developer Treyarch said this is Call of Duty's biggest map yet.
Honestly, it looks like a lot of fun. To top it all off, Black Ops 4 already has the unique futuristic equipment, so being creative with your kills is going to be a real treat when compared to other more "grounded" battle royale games.

These are my thoughts about The Division 2 after 20 hours of play. There’s still a lot to do after completing the story and i’m impressed with journey to level 30. This looter shooter is currently on the positive side, which is rare for the subgenre, especially during launch week.
Since Borderlands 2, Ubisoft and Activision have proceeded to outspend 2K and Gearbox on every level imaginable to create online-only loot shooters like Destiny and Tom Clancy’s The Division. Even EA has gotten into the action with Anthem.
The ever twisting saga of Kingdom Hearts and its convoluted lore isn’t what undercuts Kingdom Hearts III but its own feckless mechanics and the degenerate gameplay experience that comes out of it.
Our review of The Division 2 is currently underway and while it’s too soon to provide any kind of impression or feedback, I return from DC with a few tips for new agents entering the game for the first time when it goes live to the public this Friday.
Meet the rest of the heroes of the Science Patrol in the land of Rune Midgard and fight alongside them to guard the Eternal Love.
And so it all comes back full circle to Practice and Execution. I’d honed those traits via trial by line clear, way back when I vigorously played Tetris DS, but my block-droppin’ had grown rusty by the time I first picked up Tetris 99.
I’ve played the Private Beta, the Technical Beta, and the Open Beta of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. I now have a full grasp at what to expect when the game goes live on March 15. But the sequel’s campaign is a worry, while the endgame content makes me wish it’s the 15th already.
God Eater 3 is a great arcade-y hack-and-slash game with an animé aesthetic and matching characters to boot. It might not be a perfect game, but you can bet it's a fun one to jump into if you're just looking to smash some monsters’ faces in with a really big sword.
