Vehicles. I haven't personally flown or driven anything yet other than the little tank-bike to get from point to point, but tanks feel remarkably less threatening than BF1. In a way, I find this to be a good thing as a tank sitting on a point with 3-4 players with anti-tank weapons can make short work of it, but perhaps they could get a little armor boost (imho). Airplanes are airplanes. If they drop bombs on you, you're SOL. I can't attest to air combat, but when I hear planes in the air, I haven't had too much experience getting erased by them when we have friendly planes in the sky.

Blackout currently has 20 character skins available to play as, including the cast from Zombies and the Black Ops 4 specialists but to get access to their special abilities you’ll need to find them as rare items across the map. Other character skins are on the way and can be unlocked by completing missions. Blackout will feature limited time events with unlockable content, but it was confirmed in a Q&A with design director David Vonderhaar that this will not apply to getting new skins.

This is probably my favorite Call of Duty since Ghosts. I was never a huge fan of the futuristic flying jet packs and wall running of Advanced Warfare, Black Ops 3 and Infinite Warfare. WWII was refreshing in that regard, however, I really started to get burned out on WWII due to the really small maps, horrible rewards system and hokey costumes that you know never existed in the 1940s. Black Ops 4 is really refreshing. It's very fast paced and fluid. Even though there are no jet packs and wall running, nothing ever gets in your way. Getting around obstacles while shooting at the same time makes the game play super smooth. I really like the weapons (so far) and the graphics are really good. The user interface is a little confusing. I think video game companies in general could all benefit from having an actual UI designer on staff. As for the new Blackout game mode, maybe it's because I have never played any of those last man standing games like Fortnite, but I just don't do very well. It's like unless you get a decent gun within 15 seconds of landing on the ground, you're screwed. Also, the graphics in Blackout are terrible in comparison to normal multiplayer. I get it though, for a map that size they had to make compromises. Overall, I give Black Ops 4 a 9 out of 10.
Regarding how many players will be running around on this map is not yet confirmed. Treyarch have been experimenting with trials testing from 80 to 100 players, so the final number will likely be around there. Blackout also lets you play as either solo, duos, or quads (no clue as to why they’ve omitted the ‘s’). Blackout will also have land and air vehicles ranging from Little Bird helicopters to ATVs and flatbed trucks.
World War 2 games have been extremely overdone, but if you want to compare this to Battlefield 1, it's an absolute joke. This is in no wayWorld War 2 games have been extremely overdone, but if you want to compare this to Battlefield 1, it's an absolute joke. This is in no way accurate to the actual WW 2, almost as inaccurate as Cod WW2, and shoves political agenda down your throat. A rather bad and forgettable installment into the Battlefield franchise.… Expand
