Within 24 hours of its release, Black Ops had sold a combined total of 5.6 million units in the U.S. and UK market, surpassing that of Modern Warfare 2 and establishing a new record for largest entertainment launch.[140] Compared to the much anticipated opening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, the game earned more than twice as much as the film, earning $360 million.[141] Only five days after its release, sales from the game worldwide reached US$650 million, surpassing the previous record achieved by Modern Warfare 2 which earned $550 million in five days.[142] By November 22, the game remained the bestselling title in the United Kingdom, despite sales dropping by 85%.[143] Some estimates had placed sales of the game as reaching 18 million units sold, earning a revenue of $818 million. This would fall about 2 million copies and $182 million short of Modern Warfare 2.[144] By December 22, worldwide revenue of Black Ops exceeded $1 billion.[145][146] Sales remained strong months after the game's release, remaining at the top-seller list in February 2011.[147] On March 3, 2011 the news magazine The Hollywood Reporter also reported on the best selling video games ever. It announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops was the best-selling game ever in the United States of America.[148] Black Ops was the best-selling game of all time in the UK until Grand Theft Auto V overtook it in November 2014.[149] By November 2013, the game had sold 26.2 million copies.[150]

In May 2007 ABC News, and later the Daily Telegraph, reported that United States president George W. Bush had authorized the CIA to undertake "black operations" in Iran in order to promote regime change as well as to sabotage Iran's nuclear program.[9][10] ABC News was subsequently criticized for reporting the secret operation, with 2008 presidential candidate Mitt Romney saying he was "shocked to see the ABC News report regarding covert action in Iran," but ABC said the CIA and the Bush Administration knew of their plans to publish the information and raised no objections.[11]
The Black Ops 4 Blackout map is huge placing 13 iconic locations from Black Ops history all in one place. You’ll be able to battle it out in Asylum, run through Factory and fly over to Nuketown Island potentially in the same match. Previous maps in Black Ops have been comparatively small to this giant battle royale setting, it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before in the series.

As an avid gamer, I would also disagree with any legalities involving a single aspect of a game as online experience may change at any time.

The player assumes the role of various characters during the single-player campaign, changing perspectives throughout the story. The playable characters are special forces operatives conducting black operations behind enemy lines. In this way, the player's characters have their own traits such as voices and shadows.[7] Each mission features a series of objectives that are displayed on the heads-up display, which marks the direction and distance towards and from such objectives as it has been in the earlier versions. The player is accompanied by friendly troops throughout the game. Although primarily a first-person shooter, certain levels feature sequences where the player pilots a Hind helicopter and guides friendly troops from a SR-71 Blackbird reconnaissance aircraft.[18][19][20] The campaign features several scripted cinematic moments. One of them is a bullet time effect during the "Victor Charlie" level, activated when the player fires toward the last enemy of a Viet Cong squad.[citation needed]

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.

Matches won’t all be PvP, you’ll also be fighting AI zombies. Zombies spawn at a handful of pre-selected destinations, occasionally alongside a Mystery Box that contains rare items, which you can spot from a beam of blue light. Zombies will sometimes drop good loot, including weapons from Treyarch’s zombies mode. One of these items is the illustrious Ray Gun, making its debut in a PvP role – want to know how to get a Ray Gun in Blackout? We’ve got your back with a guide.

During World War II, Doctor Ludvig Maxis formed Group 935, a group of scientists that was intended to improve the human condition. Lacking funds, they soon turned to creating superweapons to aid the Nazis. Their discovery of Element 115 from a meteorite in Japan lead to the creation of zombies. Maxis and his assistant, Dr. Edward Richtofen, also work on other projects, leading to the creation of teleportation devices and 115-powered weapons. Attempting to use himself as a test subject, Richtofen accidentally teleports to a catacomb within the Moon, where he comes into contact with a mysterious pyramid device that causes him to hear mysterious voices, slowly taking away his sanity. He is later teleported to an exotic jungle known as Shangri-La, where he spends three weeks studying the Vril energy force. Upon returning to Germany, Richtofen secretly forms a plan to kill Maxis, and gathers many members of Group 935 to build a moon base, known as Griffin Station. While maintaining his cover with Maxis and the rest of Group 935, Richtofen manages to capture three soldiers: Tank Dempsey, Nikolai Belinski, and Takeo Masaki; he begins to conduct experiments with Element 115, causing memory loss for all three soldiers.

Excellent game! Battlefield returns to it's foundation of intense, unique and creative game play. The single player game play is incredible, however it is too short, I'm assuming they'll be releasing more levels in updates. The multiplayer is fairly balanced and seems to be that a battle can change at a moments notice, as there doesn't seem to be one dominating vehicle/weapon over others. Def. recommend this game
The retailer has seen a tough year all around, and earlier this year was discussing the possibility of accepting a buyout with a competitor. So far, it doesn’t look like progress has been made on that front, but it may be doing some looking around, especially after the loss. We’ll just have to see if it bounces back when end-of-the-year numbers get revealed sometime in early 2019, and if digital sales have a further effect or not.

Additionally, there is Free For All in which players aren't separated into teams. Not including Downloadable maps, there are 14 different maps.


I've had this game for about 3 months now and love it. I was a huge COD fan but their futuristic war games are incredibly annoying, so I took a chance on Battlefield 1 and it has been a nice change as it's a more realistic shooting game without retards bouncing off walls, jetpacking, spraying and praying, etc. There are a few annoying things coming from the COD series like: You cant modify your classes outside of a game, the load times are horrendous, the battlepacks are insanely retarded as they are only skins for guns which are worthless, etc. Besides these few annoyances, this game is great. I will definitely be sticking to the Battlefield series unless the COD series gets their head out of the sand.

We are now in what was supposed to be the debut weekend of Battlefield V, EA’s sequel to Battlefield 1 in one of the series’ most baffling naming decisions yet. But wisely EA chose to stay out of the middle of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 last week and Red Dead Redemption 2 this coming week, and instead delayed Battlefield V to November 20 instead, a somewhat less competitive date, though their reason given was that they just wanted more time to polish the game.
Zombies will also include a new arcade mode called Rush, it’s the same co-operative structure but leans more on friendly competition. The more undead you kill the more points you earn – a leaderboard keeps track of everybody’s score so you know who’s in the lead. The inspiration for Rush comes from Grief mode back in Black Ops 2, this arcade mode will be in the same spirit but have a more casual and friendly vibe.

After reading the one star reviews I felt it nessessary to clear some things up and some intelligence to the discussion. First off anyone saying this game is a re-skin is very far off. This game feels completely revamped however still familiar to the series. It's a game in the battlefield series and will have similar gameplay because that's what the fans want. I can promise you though the graphics have been completely overhauled, the sniper class is smoother and the guns feel and operate very different than previous battlefield games because of the WW1 setting. This is certainly not a simple re-skin.

You will also be glad to discover that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will feature grounded combat, without the wallrunning and thrust boosters of Black Ops 3.
