Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer, revealed

Watch the first gameplay trailer

During a livestreamed reveal event today, Activision debuted the first look at Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s multiplayer features.

That full-length trailer is above, but here are some highlights: swimming while using your weapon; lots of grappling hooks; remote explosives; crossbows that shoot out traps; sticky grenades that spawn additional grenades that can bounce off walls; and, most importantly, a dog.

There’s a lot of ground covered in the trailer, which Activision went on to discuss in greater detail following its debut. Certain characters from previous Black Ops games will return to feature in the campaign, for instance; Black Ops 4 also features gameplay tweaks, like giving each weapon its “own set of attachments” and using a predictive recoil pattern for guns, so that they each fire the same way every time you use them.

We’ll have more on everything there is to know about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s multiplayer campaign following the stream.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the first entry in the Black Ops subfranchise since 2015. The sequel is being pitched as “back to basics” for Call of Duty. The game will launch on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on Oct. 12.
