Call of Duty


 

Activision and Treyarch have announced Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s PC version will use Blizzard’s Battle.net online service and be custom built for the platform.

As seen in the trailer below, the Call of Duty series will be making its first steps into Blizzard’s Battle.net with Black Ops 4 to provide a large social platform on PC. Players will be able to add and chat with friends, see them playing other games, and more. Black Ops 4 players will also be able to talk with players across other Battle.net games, including Overwatch. While the service will be new to Call of Duty, Activision recently utilized Blizzard’s online gaming service for Destiny 2.

The team also revealed the development of the PC version of Black Ops 4 will be handled by Beenox. The developer plans to give PC players a unique experience by redesigning the user interface and tweaking gunplay mechanics, according to Beenox’s Philippe Troie. The PC build will also feature dedicated servers.

It was also revealed during the recent live community event that Black Ops 4 will bring back League Play, introduce a battle royale mode, and launch with three full Zombie episodes.

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