Over the past couple days Activision and Treyarch have revealed a ton of new details for the anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout battle royale mode, but we were left to imagine what the mode would actually look like in action. Well, that changes now, as the first Blackout trailer has been unleashed! The footage is fairly heavily edited and prettied up, but still, it gives us a general sense of what the Blackout map looks like, and some of the possibilities the mode will provide. We see plenty of over-the-top gunplay and vehicle combat, underwater action, zombies, and more. Check it all out, below.
As we previously reported, Blackout mode will support 80 players, launch with four vehicles which let you take to the land, air, and sea, and include dangerous hotspots where you can gun down zombies. Here’s another look at the mode’s full map.
