Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Announced

After rumors flying around for weeks about the newest Call of Duty game from the popular first-person shooter series to be Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Activision has finally made it official by dropping the first teaser for the game today to put all speculation to the rest for good. Though the game is still in development but at least, we've been confirmed that it actually exists and will be released this year.

Below is the official teaser trailer for the next entry Call of Duty series from developer Treyarch and publisher Activision for you.

With Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Treyarch is back again with their successful sub-series for the franchise and we are expecting an improved experience from the title. There are not many details to start with but there will be a special event on May 17, when Activision will reveal more about the game on public. Black Ops 4 also breaks a long-running Call of Duty cycle of trilogies for the first time.

The official logo of the game mysteriously styled as Black Ops IIII instead of Black Ops 4 and we still have no clue why! People started losing it when NBA star James Harden was first spotted with a cap that had the same Black Ops IIII logo and the hint was not missed by the keen eyes of the fans worldwide. Almost at the same time, Call of Duty: Black Ops III received a new update and people took that as a sign for a possible sequel, which eventually came true.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be released on October 12, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Although video games journalist Marcus Sellers, who previously announced about the game, also stated that the Black Ops 4 will also be ported to Nintendo Switch later but since Activision has yet to confirm on that point.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Almost Confirmed

From the look of things, it is getting apparent that we are getting Black Ops 4 as a Call of Duty series installment this year. Last year, publisher Activision teamed up with developer Sledgehammer Games to take the franchise to the core with Call of Duty: WWII and the game ended up being the bestselling console game for the publisher. This way, they were able to make up for the failure of the last installment of the series; Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Setting up the game to a futuristic world in CoD: Infinite Warfare only degraded the first-person shooter while their business rival EA Dice has secured the market competition in 2016 by taking a soft reboot of with Battlefield 1 for their counterpart first-person shooter string. Call of Duty: WWII was able to do damage control in time and their added multiplayer gameplay with new features have saved the day.

Now that 2017 is over, Activision is looking forward to have a blockbuster 2018 and that hints us towards the next Call of Duty game, which as par the rumors are going to be Black Ops 4. These rumors may seem like out of the blue but it all started when video games journalist and an industry insider named Marcus Sellers have taken Twitter to announce that developer Treyarch is up to bringing the sequel and it is going to be Black Ops 4.

RELATED: Call of Duty: WWII Nazi Zombies Details

If you think Marcus' claim was not legitimate enough then we got more evidence hinting at Black Ops 4. Check out the short clip below where player James Harden of Houston Rockets showed up wearing a cap that has a logo on it, which very much resembles to the Black Ops III logo but there is an additional tally added in the end. Though we know that the roman numeric for 4 is IV, we still are not sure if this is the official logo for Black Ops 4.

However, we still lack any confirmation from Activision or Treyarch about if any of this is solid info to rely on. The series generally switches between Infinity Ward and Treyarch to develop their distinctive Call of Duty titles. By creating Advanced Warfare in 2014, developer studio Sledgehammer Games gets into the mix and started making Call of Duty games for the last three years. So, Treyarch will most likely take their turn at the franchise in 2018 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 seems to be their comeback card.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Is Slammed On Steam

Activision is probably on the track of breaking their tradition of extending a series over a trilogy as they usually does. If that is the case, then this is the first time for them to go that way and it also means that Infinity Ward may come up with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 next. While these are all just speculation, fans will surely love for them to bring a few rules to release more new games each year.

Call of Duty: WWII Resistance DLC Multiplayer Maps

On November 3, 2017, first person shooter Call of Duty: WWII was released from Sledgehammer Games and Activision as the latest installment of the Call of Duty franchise. Within two months of its initial release not only the game brought $1 billion, it also managed to become one of the record-breaking bestselling console game from Activision.

Previously, Activision showcased another preview trailer for The Resistance DLC pack detailing what players can expect to find and the studio has been developing this expansion.

Although, many of the players are currently busy with the first community event "Winter Siege", we believe this new trailer for the first DLC of Call of Duty: WWII titled "The Resistance" is worth to look at.

The Resistance DLC of CoD: WWII is bringing three brand-new multiplayer maps to explore as well as a new War Mode mission called Operation Intercept. Also, let's not just forget about "The Darkest Shore" for Nazi Zombies mode. The expansion pack will drop on PlayStation 4 next week on January 30, only a month before arriving on PC and Xbox One.

War Mode - Operation Intercept
Probably one of the best features of The Resistance expansion pack is the brand-new War Mode mission: Operation Intercept. Operation Intercept is mostly comprised of rescue missions set in urban locations outside of St. Lo, France. Players are tasked as Allied Forces members to rescue French resistance fighters from the Axis foes and lead them to safety. Once freed, the next objective is to destroy all the key communication gears and lead a tank to an Axis train carrying weapons.

The Axis side will try to keep the Allies from retrieving the Resistance fighters to join their cause. They will also guard their comms and halt the tank from reaching the train at any cost. Since the Axis soldiers are well equipped to repair their damaged radios, the objective will not be so easy to complete. This however, is not the only challenge that will force you to rethink your moves, Call of Duty: WWII has much more in stock to keep you entertained.

For now, we've shed enough light on Operation Intercept, so let's focus on the three new multiplayer maps The Resistance has to offer.

Map 1: Valkyrie
Set in the Masurian Woods, East Prussia, Valkyrie is the first map that comes along with the DLC. This one is based on The Wolf’s Lair of Hitler, which he used as his Eastern-front headquarters when Nazi forces were invading the Soviet Union. It's the site of Operation Valkyrie, where attempts of taking down the Führer in real-world by his high-ranking officers and failed eventually. This medium-sized map demands that you keep an eye on several overwatch positions and mounted machine guns in places.

Map 2: Anthropoid
The second multiplayer map Anthropoid is also inspired by a real event called Operation Anthropoid from the time of World War II, where a high-ranking German officer was the target on an assassination attempt. Anthropoid map is located in occupied Prague, Czechoslovakia and because of the urban setting of the map; you will experience a unique diversity of gameplay on this one.

Map 3: Occupation
The final map on the list, Occupation and is a remake of a classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 map Resistance. This one involves the players to gunning around the streets of a German-occupied Paris and there are a lot of mid-range combats. Occupation is one of the most iconic pieces for the Resistance movement during World War II that it had to be included in The Resistance DLC. While you are playing in it, you can even notice the Eiffel Tower in the background at some point.

The multiplayer mode of Call of Duty: WWII is something that everyone in town is talking about these days and War Mode is a brand-new feature to it. This one is full of blockbuster action which will bring a cinematic vibe to the gameplay. Whether you are building a bridge under heavy enemy fire or just guiding a tank from the sneaky shortcuts of a French village, you can feel it there.
