Call of Duty Blackout abandons battle royale’s roots as a survival game

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launched last night without a traditional single-player campaign. In its place there’s a new mode called Blackout, a battle royale-style game based loosely on hit titles such as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite. Many expected the mode, a collaboration between Treyarch and Raven Software, to be a quick cut-and-paste job. After spending a few hours with the final product, it’s clear that’s not the case.

Not only is Blackout a rock-solid online experience, the game has its own unique style of play. It deviates from the traditional model of the battle royale genre, all but abandoning its roots as a survival game.

The HyperX Cloud MIX headset meets the hi-res audio spec by delivering sound from 10 Hz all the way up to 40,000 KHz (when plugged in). At the same time, it still delivers 20 hours of battery life while in Bluetooth mode, compared to 30 hours for the Cloud Flight.
