Stop Everything - The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Trailer Is Here

Few things get gamers excited like a new Call of Duty game.

Brace yourself, then, because today is one of those special days - yes, we're getting our first glimpse of the new game Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.


It's the first iteration of the Black Ops series to drop since 2015 and, like its forebears, it comes from the Treyarch stable run by Peter Akemann and Doğan Köslü.


In the big reveal, the trailer showed that you'll be able to set up your own barricades, launch some device that sets people on fire, shoot cables to zip your way closer to a location, set up laser trip mines and more.

The company said on social media: "Treyarch has never shied away from introducing something new or unexpected to Call of Duty and breaking with convention, and that tradition continues.

"Black Ops 4 marks the beginning of a brand new [Zombies] storyline - separate and distinct from the Aether story - a new world, with new characters and new enemies.

The game is slated for a release on October 12 this year, which will be the first COD to come out in that month since Call of Duty 2.


All other titles have previously been released in November, however Activision knew that it would be up against stiff competition with Red Dead Redemption 2 - which is totally understandable.


There have been plenty of rumours about what this fourth instalment will bring and Activision and Treyarch have confirmed that it will focus more on multiplayer than the single-player mode.

It seems as though Activision and Treyarch are borrowing from the success of Player Unknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite: Battle Royal.

The fourth chapter has a lot to live up to considering how much of a success its predecessor was.

IGN's Brian Albert wrote: "With alternate histories and crazy weapons, Treyarch's Black Ops games have always been Call of Duty's oddballs. After killing mind-wolves with a swarm of nano-bees in the new campaign, I'm happy to say Black Ops 3 not only continues that trend, but smartly embraces its sci-fi oddities more than ever before.


While it's going to be a few months before we get to have this game in our greasy mitts, this trailer provides enough reason to believe it'll all be worth the wait.
