Treyarch surely knows how to build the hype, as multiple famous streamers have already confirmed their anticipation of Black Ops 4 Blackout. We’re getting closer to its final release date, which is October 12, in which we may see a huge number of players, thoroughly escorting the beauty behind Black Ops 4 Blackout.
It is certainly not a coincidence to see players opting in during the Blackout beta, as it showcased quite a stable pre-release content, and also increased the number of players without having any core issues during the most important and decisive factor, the core gameplay. For a Call of Duty series, it is surely an important determinant to help the completion.
In the beginning, the game started with 80 as the max amount of players to battle for the throne, for a bit later to swap to 100. However, recent statements have discovered that Treyarch is ready to push the number to 115 players for some Limited Time Game Modes. None of these changes broke the game during the beta, nor it will upon release.
This surely confirms Treyarch’s tough and dedicated work towards Black Ops 4. Now let’s get back to the title. During the Open Beta, many well-known streamers involved in Blackout, the Battle Royale game mode created for Black Ops 4. Not a single one of them has denied the potential of the game, boosting the overall opinion of other individuals as well.
It is also quite amazing that Treyarch did manage to complete lots of tweaks during the event, including the announcement of the Level 3 armor tweak and others. At first look, it definitely punches a potentially good outcome and bright future for Black Ops 4 Blackout. Listening to the community is what shapes the game better, and that’s what Treyarch exactly did.
Therefore, we truly believe that Black Ops 4 Blackout is about to step on the same level as Fortnite and PUBG, grabbing some of their player bases, evening the player distribution between all three of them. However, for that day to come, we’ll need to wait a bit more, as the official release of Black Ops 4 is coming on October 12.
What are your thoughts on this one, will Black Ops 4 Blackout succeed in the long-term? A couple others did, but it remains to be seen what Blackout would achieve. The Battle Royale impact on the gaming industry is surely huge, and as the most popular genre nowadays, we do believe it will be a tough fight between all three of them, until Battlefield’s Firestorm lands.
