The announcement of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on March 8th confirmed the whirlwind of rumors that the fourth game in the popular Black Ops series would grace the storied CoD series as its next title.

The vast player-base has since waiting in anticipation of the Community Reveal Event that is set to take place on May 17th, with the game due to be released on October 12th.

With numerous rumors, leaks, and hints surfacing since the announcement, there seem to be countless questions about the game that need to be answered.

The Community Reveal Event will present developer Treyarch and publisher Activision the chance to reveal major details about the game for the first time.

That being said, here are five things that we would like to learn about during the Black Ops 4 Community Reveal Event on May 17th.

Single-Player Campaign

Every single Call of Duty title has featured a single-player campaign mode, many of them featuring memorable moments and legendary characters.

However, numerous sources have come out and said that CoD: Black Ops 4 will not feature such a mode.

It would be very interesting to find out if these reports are true, and if so, then what are the reasons behind such a major and sudden decision.

Multiplayer Game Modes

In their recent financial call, the executives from Activision mentioned that Treyarch have been hard at work developing innovative mutliplayer game modes that will bring novelties to CoD that haven’t been seen before.

Does that mean that brand new game modes and/or integral changes to existing and familiar modes are coming to Black Ops 4?

Also, could this be a reference to the introduction of a Battle Royale mode that has been heavily suggested by numerous reports and leaks?

In-game Movement Mechanics

In-game movement mechanics will most likely be a heavy point of focus and emphasis during the Reveal Event.

The three year spell of the ‘Jetpack Era’ of Call of Duty was brought to an end with the more traditional, boots-on-the-ground style of the current WWII title, which has received its share of mixed reviews.

What kind of movement system will Black Ops 4 feature, and how will it work towards fixing the movement mistakes of previous titles?

Perks System and Scorestreaks

The introduction of Divisions in CoD: WWII represented a major overhaul to the more classical perks systems that players have grown familiar with over the years.

Many in the community have expressed their desire for the return of the traditional ‘Pick-10’ perks system, something which Treyarch have cryptically hinted at in a previously tweeted image.

Furthermore, it will be worth seeing which, if any, of the scorestreaks are introduced during the Reveal event, as that has been another aspect of Call of Duty which players want to see revamped after recent titles.

Maps

Maybe the most important aspect of Call of Duty multiplayer, maps require delicate balance and intricate design that is hard to perfect but easy to mess up.

Traditionally, the Black Ops series has produced some of the most iconic maps in the CoD franchise.

Fans and players will hope that this trend will continue with the next title, and will look forward to seeing a glimpse of some of the maps on May 17th.

Drift0r explains why Warzone “isn’t worth” playing anymore

Popular Call of Duty YouTuber Drift0r has released a new video explaining why he thinks Warzone isn’t worth playing anymore due to the number of cheaters in the game, confirming that he is on the brink of “jumping ship” with the battle royale title.

If you’ve been wondering if/when larger content creators and streamers would abandon Warzone due to the lack of an anti-cheat software then wonder no more.

Today, Drift0r – one of the more prominent content creators in the CoD scene – has made a video slamming Warzone for its inability to deal with all the rampant cheating and it seems like the issue has brought him to a breaking point with the game.

“It’s difficult enough with skill-based matchmaking as it is, having to play the sweatiest top 1% players, that’s a challenge in-and-0f-itself that I don’t particularly like for battle royale, but adding in blatant aim-botters on top of that makes the game painfully unfun,” Drift0r said.

According to Drift0r, the cheating in Warzone has become such a problem that he’s considering leaving the game behind.

In the 10-minute long video, the YouTuber says the cheating problem is making him not want to play the game anymore, claiming that he runs into at least “two to three cheaters a night.”

Because of this, and the fact that interest in the game is waning, he contends that he doesn’t feel like the game is worth playing because of the cheating problem.

“I really like Warzone, you can look at my videos, it’s my number 1 most favorite CoD thing to play, but I’m planning to jump ship,” he said. “I got up this morning and I made the decision: I’m going to go ahead and keep making videos but I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t think it’s worth playing anymore.”

Cheating is a major problem for the CoD community right now. The PC version of Warzone is riddled with cheaters and hackers, whether they use external software or manipulate the skill-based matchmaking system to get lower-tier lobbies, to the point where major tournaments have been ruined and lost integrity.

All indications are that Drift0r is not alone in sharing this sentiment; the content creators he’s talked to feel a similar way, claiming they are all ready to “jump ship” as well once a viable game comes along that protects them from cheaters.

Because of this, it seems like the future of Warzone is going to be a turbulent one if Activision doesn’t do anything about the state of the game soon, especially when it comes to the cheating problem.
