A lot of gamers are absolutely geeked about the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. There are so many questions, and many different elements that gamers are curious about that may finally get answered starting May 17th.
There's a special press event set to take place on May 17th. The community reveal event will be held at the Jet Center in Los Angeles, California. One of CinemaBlend's own will be in attendance to get a firsthand look at what Activision and Treyarch has to show off for the highly anticipated game.
Unfortunately, we don't know exactly what will be showcased at the event. Community reveal events typically give gamers a rundown of the general gist for the current year's iteration of Call of Duty. Last year Activision held a press event where the developers talked about the campaign mode in Call of Duty: WWII and revealed some of the cast of characters who would appear in the game, including Transformers' Josh Duhamel and Westworld's Jonathan Tucker.
Last year gamers were taken back to World War II, where the story centered around a group of soldiers touching down in Normandy, and the brotherhood they shared through thick and thin leading up toward the end of the war. The game was heavily cinematic and also sported the traditional multiplayer that most Call of Duty games are known for. During the reveal event, however, the multiplayer was kept under wraps until a later date.
The previous year wasn't quite as kind to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Gamers were treated to a very different take on the genre, including having space flight added to the mix, and far larger environments that had more of a sandbox feel to them as opposed to the linear, corridor thematics featured in the other games. However, all of the back-to-back future games in the franchise gave gamers future fatigue, and Infinite Warfare didn't fare as well on the market.
For this year the team has gone back to the Black Ops well, which makes sense given that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was the best selling in the franchise and was a massive success. It was also a uniquely told story that didn't pull any punches and was also one of the most ambitious when it came to tackling moralistic and philosophical subject matter.
Treyarch obviously has a tall hill to climb when it comes to serving up something that matches the quality and commercial success of Black Ops 3.
For now we have no idea what the game will be about or whether or not it will even pick up where Black Ops left off or start some all new story. There are even rumors floating around that there won't be a traditional single-player mode, which has caused a major uproar in how gamers are thinking about approaching the series. Also, you won't find any sort of hints or morsels of information over on the official Call of Duty website.
For now everyone has to wait until May 17th to get the full rundown on what the very mysterious Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be about.
