CompLexity’s Censor Believes Black Ops 4 Will be The ‘Saving Grace’ for Call of Duty

CompLexity Gaming player Doug “Censor” Martin had a chance to get hands on time with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 courtesy of Activision, and has some very positive things to say about the upcoming game.

Many fans of the Call of Duty series are looking to the next instalment in the Black Ops series to live up to the hype generated by what is the most successful sub-franchise in the series, but doubts always begin to creep in with the uncertainty of the next game.

A vocal majority of Call of Duty fans were unhappy with the futuristic setting of 2016’s Infinite Warfare, something Activision itself has recognized, with the next title taking CoD back to the 1940’s.

However, while fans got their wishes for a ‘boots on the ground game’ and a classic setting, some were left uninspired by CoD: WWII, perhaps feeling it was a little too stripped back.

Censor recognizes this, and reckons that Black Ops 4 will be the “saving grace” of the Call of Duty series, as it faces increasing competition from other popular titles, particularly on console.

“I think Black Ops 4 will be the saving grace for Call of Duty. I know we say this almost every single year, but all the Black Ops games have such a good history. Black Ops 1 was amazing, Black Ops II was one of the best Call of Duty’s and I loved Black Ops III, I thought it was a really fun game.

Black Ops 4 has to be good. There’s no way they make three games before this one and then the fourth one is not good.”

Censor also acknowledges that while the community was very excited for CoD: WWII, many were disappointed with the final release, especially after a patchy launch period. But he believes Black Ops 4 will live up to the hype.

“I know a lot of you guys aren’t really the biggest fans of WWII, and I totally get that. But I hope Black Ops 4 is going to be good. I made a lot of Call of Duty videos on Black Ops III, and I think Black Ops 4 will live up the hype. I think it’s going to be a really fun game and really hope that you guys can give it a chance.”

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
