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.

All-in-all this was a good year for Warframe, with a string of major patches that brought in much needed fresh air. While some of the more hardcore players may cite the changes as “the devs coddling the noobs,” I believe that this is just part of the natural progression for a game that’s trying to acclimate to a growing playerbase with varying skill levels.

Playing Prey on hard feels right. The tension is constant but the amount of resources available is enough for me to see this through.
