Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Launch Weekend Impressions

Now that Black Ops 4 has entered the wild we have had a good amount of time playing in all of its various modes and wanted to begin our coverage of the title leading up to a full review later on down the line. For starters, yes, this is the first COD to come with no single player campaign – but Black Ops 4 still has a story. We’ll get to that more in-depth in our full review coming forthwith. In the mean time, let’s talk about some of the game’s performance issues, grand achievements, pros and cons, and early impressions you can expect when first turning on the game.

What’s inside Black Ops 4 Season Pass

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launched today and although the full game contains plenty of content for players, there is some question this time around as to what exactly is included in the game’s Season Pass. Taking a slightly different approach from previous COD games and their Season Pass structures, Treyarch claims to be dropping “more content with more frequency” in the new Black Ops Pass.

Some controversy existed when players realized that the Black Ops Pass was only available through purchasing special editions of the game so far, making it unclear if it would even be available at a later date or if gamers would have to pay full price for each DLC individually instead. But that turned out to be false, Black Ops Pass can be purchased on its own. So what’s exactly being offered here? And what’s in the base game?

Black Ops 3 Gameplay Shown for First Time Ever

Black Ops 3 Co Op Campaign

Wonder no more, the gameplay reveal is here for the next chapter in the Call of Duty franchise. Pushing things further into the future and continuing the trend of Advanced Warfare, Black Ops 3 will feature cybernetic soldiers as rumored. There’s also a New Zombies Mode, though that is not mentioned in this particular trailer. The entire story mode of Black Ops 3 will be playable as co-op with 2 players on the same system or 4 players online.

This one’s all about the gameplay footage. It appears the title won’t be available for PS3 / Xbox 360 but that is yet to be totally ruled out. For now though, assume this game is only going to be available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox ONE when it launches this November 6, 2015. Take a look at some of the brand new stuff you can do in the game with your cybernetic technology. *Pre-ordering the game will also ensure Beta Access.

Black Ops 3 RealGamerNewZ

The game takes place fifty years from now with a focus on cybernetics as well as the challenge that technology brings mankind.

Treyarch launched a new Live Action trailer in anticipation for the official Gameplay Reveal which will take place this Sunday and has offered both Double XP as well as Double Weapon XP for Black Ops 2 players starting this Friday and ending on Monday.

Based on hidden information in the official Call of Duty website which was spotted recently the game will feature an all-new Zombies mode from Treyarch as well as launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox ONE, and Windows PC.

Week In Review – Post Easter Hiatus

RGN Week In Review - Post Easter Hiatus

We’re back from our brief Easter Holiday Vacation and we share our opinions on the goings on of the past week including The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and what we think of it so far, Black Ops 3 and everything there is to know about it up to this point, Not A Hero from Devolver Digital + Roll7 and its current exclusivity to Steam, WB Games and Capcom arguing on Twitter over whether Mortal Kombat has more lifetime sales or Street Fighter (more like WB Games getting called out for false advertising the MK series in general, just by a hair), and our own confirmation that Yes, H1Z1 is still coming to PS4 (eventually), as well as some very inspiring news from the world of Tech as a brighter future approaches.

Back in Black: Activision Teases The Next Call of Duty Game

Call of Duty - Black Ops 3 - RealGamerNewz

Activision has dropped a very cryptic trailer, teasing the next game in their Juggernaut franchise.

The teaser features multiple symbols and dialogue from the previous Black Ops games, before revealing the Roman Numeral 2, which then transforms into a 3. It’s Safe to say this year’s Call of Duty will be Black Ops 3.

A full reveal is then promised for April 26, 2015.

Don’t Fret, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Servers are Not Shutting Down

Call of Duty: Black Ops

Apparently an alleged screenshot of an in game message in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, is doing the rounds on the internet. It states that the online servers for the game will be disconnected on the 15th of May and June for Xbox 360 and PS3 respectively.

Server

If you still play Black Ops 2 don’t be alarmed though, as the picture is 100% fake. According to Activision’s support account on twitter, the photo is doctored and fans have “nothing to worry about”.

So all is well. If you prefer to play the multiplayer of Treyarch’s 2012 entry in the long running franchise — or planned on picking it up, then you can. No attempts to force you to get the disappointing Call of Duty: Ghosts or irritating Advanced Warfare are being made. Not yet anyway.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Exo Zombies Mode – Starring Rose McGowan Alongside Other Hollywood Actors

aweoinawerfoinaerf

Exo Zombies Havoc Trailer of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in 60fps. Actors: Rose McGowan, John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, and Jon Bernthal star in the latest teaser for the upcoming Exo Zombies mode DLC for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on Xbox ONE, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Little is known about the exact origins of the storyline for this online multiplayer co-op campaign but as far as COD fans last heard – Treyarch was not passing the baton on the original storyline to Zombies.

The original storyline to the first Zombies mode was retired and given its own sort of ending with Black Ops 2’s final DLC pack, I still have Black Ops 1 and 2 for PS3 with all of the DLC’s and replay them with friends for their Zombies modes (admittedly need to get around to re-buying World at War and those as well for the collection). So essentially, this was a surprise to most people as they expected Zombies to be done with – or in the least, for Treyarch to be making their return with it. It’s now seeming that Activision may have a Zombies mode every year implemented into the game, but that for this year the DLC mode is likely required to be purchased rather than come as part of the original game to the dismay of millions of gamers worldwide.

Take a look at today’s new Havoc Trailer below in 1080P 60 frames per second.

RGN Interview: Call of Duty Star James C. Burns (AKA Sgt Frank Woods) Discusses New Film Coldwater + More

RGN Interviews James C Burns Sgt Woods

Welcome to RealGamerNewz and today we’d like to welcome a very special guest; Call of Duty: Black Ops 1 & 2 Star who played as Sgt Frank Woods, real name James C. Burns, on his new role in this summer’s hit film, Coldwater. And yes, I even got James to say a few words about the potential for a future of his work with Treyarch.

Currently #1 in France and hitting American theaters on August 15th, Coldwater made a big splash at SXSW and the Cannes Film Festival. You can check out the trailer for Coldwater on RealGamerNewz.com and to give a little background on the plot, Burns plays the role of an Ex-Marine Colonel who has set out to help a group of juvenile young folks to reform themselves by any means necessary. A real life boot camp if you will.

But this isn’t just your typical boot camp film. Another character named Brad is one of the teenagers forced into this reform training and has more on his mind than others may realize. While trying to do all of the right things, he just can’t seem to catch a break. Coldwater is produced by Flying Pig Productions and directed by Vincent Grashaw.

Rumor: Black Ops 3 Announcement Coming This March

Black Ops 3

After a certain voice actor made a tweet and then deleted it “#blackops3 #nextcod” included in his tweet about doing work that day, it became a media frenzy that the next Call of Duty game could in fact become Black Ops 3. An announcement from the official Activision and Treyarch camps is expected to arrive some time in March 2014 to confirm and reveal Black Ops 3 to the world for the very first time, if theories are correct.

However, let us take a moment to look at the issue of leaking. Would it really be a voice actor’s best idea (or whoever was near their twitter account at the time being) to leak something like this? Not likely. Perhaps Activision has strategically leaked this information ahead of schedule through the popular voice actor’s twitter account in order to take attention off of Ghosts unsatisfying, and often ridiculed gameplay, and remind gamers that Treyarch still has a next-gen COD coming and it’s probably a lot better.
