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.
