If you missed out on the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, there’s no need to despair. A number of great deals on recently released games are still alive and well. For instance, you can get Battlefield V for just $30. But if you prefer the Call of Duty style of shooter, you’re not left out in the cold. Even though it just came out last month, you can get the PS4 or Xbox One versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 for just $40 right now, no strings attached.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 comes with all-new versions of the series’ well-established multiplayer and Zombies modes. But instead of the third pillar being a single-player campaign like in previous installments, developer Treyarch has introduced a new online mode called Blackout. Blackout is a battle royale-style mode that has around 100 players drop onto an island and fight it out as the playing field shrinks. The match ends when only one player or team is left standing.
Critic Kallie Plagge scored the game 8/10 in GameSpot’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 review, summing it up like this: “Black Ops 4 isn’t short on content, and its three main modes are substantial. Multiplayer introduces more tactical mechanics without forcing you into them, and it largely strikes a good balance. Zombies has multiple deep, secret-filled maps to explore, though its returning characters don’t hold up and prove distracting. Finally, Blackout pushes Call of Duty in an entirely new direction, making use of aspects from both multiplayer and Zombies for a take on the battle royale genre that stands on its own. Sure, there isn’t a traditional single-player campaign, but with the depth and breadth of what is there, Black Ops 4 doesn’t need it.”
If that sounds like a game you want to try for yourself or buy for someone on your shopping list this holiday, grab it quickly. The sale price ends today at Target, and Walmart may follow suit.
