call of duty: black ops II

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 con­firmed by head­gear spot­ted on a sports star

XBox: The Official Magazine - - START - black is back

It was al­ways in­evitable that we’d get an­other Call Of Duty game at some point this year, we just didn’t ex­pect it so soon – or for the whole thing to be con­firmed by NBA star James ‘The Beard’ Harden wear­ing a base­ball cap with a logo on it. Of course fans in­stantly spot­ted it and be­gan com­ment­ing on the fact that they’ve gone for the ro­man nu­meral vari­a­tion IIII in­stead of the more widely used IV.

Ac­tivi­sion has since fol­lowed up with an of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment say­ing that it’s in de­vel­op­ment and will be out on 12 Oc­to­ber this year. While they didn’t show any­thing of the game ex­cept for an­other shot of the next logo (this time not on a hat) they did also an­nounce that they’ll be hold­ing a com­mu­nity re­veal event on 17 May to show the game off prop­erly.

Wide berth

The last Black Ops game went re­ally far for­ward for a full sci-fi theme and space set­ting that didn’t go down as well with gamers as orig­i­nally thought, so this time it’s ex­pected that Tre­yarch will dial that back in favour of a more grounded ap­proach that’s in line with the re­cently suc­cess­ful COD:

WWII and its ‘boots on the ground’. Ac­tivi­sion cur­rently has a lot to prove af­ter the dis­ap­point­ment of Des­tiny 2 so we ex­pect it’ll be par­tic­u­larly care­ful with its up­com­ing shoot­ers. It’s also worth not­ing that the date for BLOPS 4 is two weeks ear­lier than COD’s nor­mal late-Oc­to­ber re­lease. It seems that even the big boys want to avoid clash­ing with Red

Dead Redemption II on 26 Oc­to­ber.

Ex­pect more from COD: BLOPS 4 in is­sue 165.

RIGHT Black Ops

3 alien­ated some play­ers with its space set­ting; here’s hop­ing it’ll be di­alled back for 4.
