I figured we should start a thread to talk about COD Black Ops 4 (what a mess these COD names are). I tried out the traditional game beta and it seemed like the usual spawn and die repeatedly stuff you usually find but then footage of the battle royale mode exploded on the streams and it looks pretty cool.
Firstly, only Activision could get away with such a blatant copy of PUBG. I remember PUBG Corp complaining about Fortnight being a copy but this… this definitely is. Thing is, I don’t think the smaller in comparison company would dare take on Bobby Kotick’s horde of lawyers.
Secondly, it’s basically PUBG but with polish. Man, the idea of playing a PUBG-alike but without all the jankiness is certainly enticing and the game looks proper fun. There are variations and additions to the gameplay to at least differentiate it from regular PUBG.
I am keen to try it tonight when they allow us non-pre-orderers into the Beta. Anyone else giving it a go?
