Activision, Treyarch and Beenox have released a brand new trailer for the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

The trailer, which was uploaded to the official Call of Duty YouTube channel is made up of footage all taken from the PC version of the game.

The minute long video also highlights the PC specific features that will come with Black Ops 4 on release, including uncapped framerate support, 4K resolution, dual and widescreen monitor support and extensive control options for mouse and keyboard.

The trailer again confirms that the PC version of Black Ops 4 will release exclusively on Activision Blizzard’s Battle.net platform.

Beenox, the studio working on the PC port of the game, have spoken in the past about how the console version will feel slightly different, especially in terms of balancing weapons, due to the accuracy that players will have using keyboard and mouse instead of a controller.

Black Ops 4 fans have already had a taste of what the game will play like on PC, thanks to the Black Ops 4 Beta which ran from August 11 to August 13.

There is still one more opportunity for CoD fans on PC to get their hands on Black Ops 4, with the beta for new battle royal mode Blackout set to release on September 15.

The full game will release on October 12, available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC through Battle.net.

CoD Mobile devs explain why Overkill perk hasn’t been added yet

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have shed a little bit more light on why the Overkill perk hasn’t been added just yet despite being teased for a few seasons now.

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, fans of the game are treated to a whole batch of new content, typically including a new weapon, new map, new skins, and a new character. 

Back in CoD Mobile Season 8, the Overkill perk was supposed to be added alongside Quick Fix and Shrapnel. Though the other two made it in, Overkill was left locked until being removed not too long ago. 

The removal of the perk, which has been a staple in other CoD titles, has had fans questioning whether the devs are getting rid of it entirely, and now, they’ve shed a little more light on what’s happened.

Overkill was listed a perk for CoD Mobile but was never available.

Following their October 29 Community Update, where they revealed some additional content for Halloween, as well as going over bug fixes for the current season, the devs were quizzed on plenty of different topics – including Overkill. 

Players asked if it was still in the works and if they had any further info to add, given that players have been waiting quite a while to see it. “No, not yet. Still the same situation as before where we aren’t quite comfortable enough with weapon balance after the introduction of Gunsmith,”  the devs replied. 

Adding on to that, they continued: “We need weapon balance to be damn near perfect before we drop Overkill into the mix since that can have a huge effect on weapon balance as well.”

Given that the power of balancing is in the hands of the devs, there’s no telling as to when the mobile game will be balanced enough for Overkill to be introduced. 

Fans who have been waiting for the perk will be hoping that this day comes sooner rather than later, but, we’ll just have to wait and see.
