This game was released on October 12, 2018 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is a multiplayer shooter developed by Treyarch and published by Activision. Time-wise, the upcoming game is set between Black Ops II and III; it ditches the advanced movement mechanics from BO3, but retains the Specialists feature. There is eight of them in total, each with their own unique equipment and ability, and further customizable through the returning Pick 10 system.

Black Ops IIII comes with the usual competitive multiplayer modes, including a new one called “control”, as well as the fan-favorite cooperative Zombies mode with three distinct locations. There is also Blackout: a brand new battle royale mode, which pits players against each other on the largest map ever seen in the series, and includes pilotable vehicles and classic weapons from the entire Black Ops franchise.

While the game lacks a single-player campaign, it wouldn’t be accurate to say that there is no solo content. According to the developers, there are individual single-player missions which serve as challenges and provide some backstory on each of the Specialists.

Pre-order Bonuses

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - MX-9 Signature Weapon

Pre-order any of the premium editions – which includes the Digital Deluxe, Digital Deluxe Enhanced, Pro, and Mystery Box Edition – and you’ll also receive an MX-9 Signature Weapon depicted above. Signature Weapons are a new type of cosmetics in Black Ops 4 that are unlocked through in-game challenges and do not alter the gameplay – beyond looking more badass than the base versions, of course.
