Call of Duty


 

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 needed something to get excited about, following reports that the game is launching without a single-player campaign and that the multiplayer is currently mired in development hell.

Thankfully, a recent tweet from developer Treyarch seems to tease a return of one of Black Ops III players’ favorite mutltiplayer features: the Pick Ten system.

The tease comes in the form of a reply to a fan tweet. Treyarch cleverly gives that tweet a ten out of ten:

Anyone who’s played Call of Duty: Black Ops III or Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, among several other entries in the series, should recognize the above image as, we’re assuming, Black Ops 4‘s version of the Pick Ten visualization of allocation points spent.

Call of Duty: WWII scrapped the Pick Ten system and instead shifted from a create-a-class system to more solidified Divisions that each came with their own basic training perks and a more linear progression system. This system was met with mixed feelings from fans, so it looks like Treyarch is going back to what works.

The other important bit of information in the above tweet is that Treyarch still plans on sticking with a full reveal for Black Ops 4 on May 17th. Following reports that a more hero-based, Overwatch-style system that Treyarch had been experimenting with for Black Ops 4 was shot down by early playtesters, doubts about whether the game would even be ready for the May 17th reveal started to surface. However, given the nature of the tweet, it seems like the game’s development is at least partially on track.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is scheduled to launch October 12th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
