Forums - Gaming Discussion - Black Ops 4 Is Setting A Dangerous Precedent

I'm not against a pure BR CoD but against putting in to sell at 60 dollars. Fortnite is a behemoth because it's free with only microtransactions to generate revenue. I don't think a 60 dollar battle royale can survive for much time against a free game.

So they cut out the single player campaign for a cash grab Battle Royale mode that will be riddled with microtransactions Im sure. If BO4 sells well, it sends a message to the industry. A bad one. 

 

How do you think this will play out? Sound off.

 

If they dont want a SP campaign then they dont want one. There are many other FPS (and other genres) with SP campaign that you can put your money towards. Thats never going to change regardless of what CoD does.



No one cares about the campaign.

Never mind other sites. This thread, alone, proves that to be false. Just because you may not care for the Campaign doesn't mean everyone feels the same.



                                                                                                                                            

Personally I think they should have added a 6 or 7 hour campaign. The game will sell 25 to 30m so they clearly have the revenue to do so. With a campaign it would have been the complete package. Zombies, multilayer, zombies and campaign. 4 strong pillars for BO4. Not to be. Zombies look interesting and battle royale mode could be epic. It's a €30 purchase at most for me if I get it at all.

There's been about 15 cods and this is the first with no campaign. End of an era.

Hopefully battlefield v reveal next week come out with their awesome multiplayer as usual, a battle royale mode and then say guess what folks here is a campaign. Even a bit of online Co op missions. The complete package.

Let's say this sells 30m. Surely a minimum of 30% will care about the campaign. Surely a pool of 10m or so players deserves the investment. Can't believe they didn't go the full hog. The game could of had series hype. 



I think that COD gamers play it because of the multiplayer and not the single player campaign. Just about everyone knows this. Any game that's mainly a single player experience with a complimentary multiplayer won't be affected by this.



i just dont see the hype, just looks like typical ol cod multiplayer,nothing special, but eh to each their own

The Campaign in CoD has always been a good way to introduce players to the mechanics of the game. It's not needed, but it's a good buffer.



My true form. You like it?

The return to a modern setting will make some people back down on this one. I mean the BR setting is already dominated by Fornite and PUBG, so I don't see COD imposing itself on that ground.

Zombie mode looks like the most promising feature, but again, it's just another zombie mode with a new setting as usual.

The whole game actually feels like a BOPS 3 expansion. (It's clear they reutilized the assets from that game, they didn't even bother to up the engine ...)
