With that this popular first-person shooter sub-series is making its return with their fourth installments.

Check out this cinematic trailer for CoD: Black Ops 4 that highly emphasize on playing as a team. In other words, its Multiplayer mode.

Just because Activision has decided to shift their focus on multiplayer doesn't mean that they are abandoning single-player mode permanently. The overall change they are introducing us to is exclusive for this year’s game. Future Call of Duty titles will return to what people consider as the roots of the franchise. Meanwhile, you are all welcome to enjoy some high-paced futuristic setting action with guns blazing and flame-throwing at enemies to blow them up alongside your teammates.

Shooting through walls and bringing down helicopters in battlefield will soon make you realize that your every shot counts. Your healing is no longer automatic and so, using your special recovery button will be as vital as it is to reload frequently. Combat system is mostly ground based and weapon customization is one of the primary aspects. There are attachments unique to your guns that cannot be shared with all class. Treyarch made sure that you would become trigger-happy playing this one.

We now want to take peak at some Zombies action that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has in stores for us. The first clip takes us to a medieval age setup in a gladiatorial arena with flesh-eating beings of the supernatural. Yup, that's what they are.

Black Ops 4's cooperative Zombies mode is perhaps what Treyarch offers us as a compensation for replacing story mode. You can play Zombies mode as solo with AI-controlled partners or in a four-player co-op like always. There goes your substitute for single player mode and all four heroes are exploring brand-new storyline as they travel back in time to fight those hordes of undead menaces. At launch, the game will offer three different Zombies experiences set apart from previous games.

Second trailer takes our time travelling heroes to a cruise setup of what seems like Titanic, where they work together to secure a relic that can unleash those ravaging terrors on Earth. Since Treyarch never had a plan to do a traditional campaign, adding back-stories for Zombies mode is sort of nice. Plus, there will be limited time events and special challenges for players to take part in squads or with aid from team members controlled by bots. Have we mentioned that these campaigns can also be tweaked with some added customization options? They do.

Also, the rumors on the game not having a single player campaign turn out to be true all along. Which brings a brand-new a battle royale mode in its place called Blackout and you do know how this genre of games works by now, right? Of course you do. If you do remember Nuketown map from Call of Duty's Black Ops franchise, then the one that features in this mode will blow your mind as it is the biggest map in entire series till date. Time for trend to take over tradition.

If running through a desert map buck naked with a frying pan in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds or shooting people hoping around in Epic Games' free-to-play Fortnite makes you think that you have seen all there is to see in battle royale, then Blackout mode from Black Ops 4 will open a whole new world in front of you. Reportedly, they are to add characters, map locations and weapons from all previous titles to this one. The action will take place on ground, sea and air to expand your reaches even further.

Apparently, whatever glimpse of features we have witnessed says that the developers did what they could to fill the emptiness of a single-player campaign. Also, zombies are to appear in the middle of this chaos, which will be a lot more exciting and more intense for players. However, the multiplayer aspect will have some narrative after all and most possibly, the new battle royale mode Blackout is going to make PUBG and every other last-man-standing shooter look pale in comparison for sure.
