After an extremely lengthy hiatus of some three years, give or take, I’m excited to be getting back into Esports and also into my writing. Not that anyone reading this will care, so all I’ll say regarding the matter is that I’m back and planning on writing even more regularly than I did in the past, and hopefully my writing has only matured and improved with time. Now, let’s get to the good stuff. The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Private Beta was released for PS4 users as of August 3rd, and from what I’ve seen so far, this game looks like another installment in Treyarch’s masterful creations that will be perfect for the competitive Call of Duty Esports community.
Although the game has some enhancements and changes, most notably the health bar above players’ heads that allows you to know just how close not only you yourself are to dying, but also your teammates and enemies. Many people have been in a bit of uproar concerning this addition to the game, although I’m fairly confident mostly everyone will have little to no issue adjusting and may in time appreciate it. The perks in Black Ops 4 appear to be some of the most satisfying in recent memory, and many of the weapons have the makings of previous guns throughout the franchise’s elaborate history with some advanced modifications to fit the futuristic era in which the game is set.
Some are already saying that this title has the potential to be the most satisfying Call of Duty, and for those who had a lot of fun playing Black Ops 2 and Black Ops 3 specifically, this game does have a strong similarity and vibe to it and Treyarch hasn’t gotten too complicated and advanced to change too much of the structure.
