Can't wait to see what they've got cooking! BLOPS3 was one of my favourite cods of recent years. I would've never imagined Treyarch to carry on the torch of IW. They even managed to make the 3-lane map design work. The level of visibility was also much improved from past (and future) titles and is something I always appreciate in multiplayer games. The amount of support it received post-launch was very atypical for a CoD title as well and indicative of how well it was received amongst fans, despite jetpackgate. I personally loved the movement mechanics and the amount of creativity it allowed while pewpewing other players. That said, it didn't hold a candle to Titanfall (2)'s controls/movement though but was still perfectly adequate in my opinion. And the Specialists were a brilliant addition so I'm hoping they return for BLOPS4, in one form or another.

 

This years' effort (and the one before that) we're completely soulless and uninspired. So I hope to fuck they once again blow the lid off the franchise and give us all the colours and ridiculous weapons & outfits to run around in.

I hope it has a cast which look like rejects from X-Men: The Last Stand and map design with plenty of invisible walls blocking off waist high platforms.

Officially announced.

 

But what made them think anyone wants to write it as IIII? Extra effort is not how the internet works.

Surely this time the main protagonist will be a woman, surely? It can't just be a group of tedious macho blokes again can it?

zzzzz

 

3 was abysmal. Everything that sucks about modern cod in one package. Worst campaign by a fucking mile, loot boxes, dlc guns, super moves and weapons, poor maps....complete pap. Cool if you like that sort of thing but I couldn't stand it. 

 

easy pass

Ooooh that'd be great actually. Not in the least because Jamie Hyder did an amazing job portraying Salter in Infinite Warfare. Such a badass, loved that character! I thought the relationship between her and the main character was also really well done (for once).

 

 

That raspy voice she does as the character though. :wub:

But everyone's just going to call it BLOPS4 anyway so it doesn't really matter.

Compare and contrast VN1X's Battlefield and CoD announment threads. It's like reading a single format mag in the 90s. :lol:

This isn't my thread though is it?

 

And for the record I love the Battlefield franchise. Some of my favourite multiplayer experiences happened while playing Battlefield with friends. I just didn't get on with the last two titles as much lol. 

 

EDIT: Granted I have somewhat of a soft spot for CoD in the sense that every year I know what I'm getting into. It's a guilty pleasure. It's my quick and easy shooter fix. With Battlefield however I have much higher expectations. Battlefield 4 and BF1 definitely aren't bad games by any stretch of the imagination. They did, however, lack in the map design department (especially with Rush) and other gameplay mechanics which I've already written numerous posts about in past BF threads.

Excellent stuff, and an early release as well. Looking forward to finding out what the setting is in May.

 

@VN1X do you mind if I update the first post with the info you posted?

After sales were way up on IW for going back to a simpler approach, I can't fathom why they would go back to the future (zing) again.

 

If it's more like the first one though... I could get on board.

 

No more crappy zombies though, please!

Don't you mean Sledgehammer? 

 

Also Zombies is a separate mode, not a mandatory thing innit. If you're up for more straightforward co-op shenanigans then Treyarch's got you covered though as it's more than likely you'll be able to play the campaign with friends, from start to finish, just like BO3.

WWII is such a dumb and bad game though. Plagued by poor map design (featuring the least amount of maps in CoD history even), even worse sound design and plenty of other balancing issues. It also regularly takes liberties with the tech and setting, completely making up weapons and attachments as they go along. It even has a fuckin' UAV, explained away as a "Recon plane", which constantly spots the player or otherwise have them show up on a magic radar when they fire their guns. What? I'm never one to go on about nerfs or what not (I just don't care enough, especially when it comes to CoD) but considering the already very lenient aim assist and other such assists, you might as well let your mum play the game for you. 

 

Obviously CoDWWII was hugely successful but as far as game mechanics go it's not that much different from any other game in the franchise. WWII would've been the perfect chance to actually strip back some of these mechanics but alas... they opted to keep the merro-go-round fuckfest of previous titles. Not that it matters as they still took my money. I deserve everything I got! :P

I traded in WW2 and re-installed Blops 3 (I also still have Remastered and then Blops 1&2 on my Xbox One X) and that still plays great. The difference in quality between WW2 and the blops series is very noticeable, even if I did at first enjoy WW2 more than the previous few entries in the series.

 

I look forward to a beta hopefully and even if I do like it I’ll be getting it on disc.

Assume you're talking about the MP only. The campaign was a boring uninspired trudge rehashing the same old setpieces everyone has already played through umpteen times in every bleeding WW2 game.

 

Infinite Warfare had the best campaign CoD had seen in years, shame the fan base utterly rejected it because 'Where is my realistic shootmans for big boys!!!'. Activision should have released that element as a brand new IP and it would have fared much better.
