Looks like Battle Royale is making its way into the China exclusive Call of Duty Online title.

A user uploaded a video showcasing the new Battle Royale style mode in action in Call of Duty Online, which is a free to play Call of Duty title available only in China. The game is developed by Raven Software and published by Tencent and Activision.

Battle Royale genre has taken over the gaming industry this past year, with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Epic Games’ Fortnite.

It’s not clear if a Battle Royale mode could come to future main Call of Duty title. Call of Duty Online currently remains a China only game with no plans for international expansion.

See the new mode in action:

    I’m jealous of China now, I wish COD Online would release globally, it’s way better than the last few CODs (inc WW2)

    • MaxHuntz

      it will be global at one point

      • KimIrSen

        Yep, when China takes over the world and you are forced to sew sneakers 20 hours a day and you won’t have any free time to actually play COD Online.

      • forrest1985

        After Infinite Warfare I would have preferred Activision to release COD online worldwide and give the Devs a longer development window. Perhaps have Raven help with development of COD online for the west and keep it fresh with content whilst Treyarch and SHG work on new COD’s

    • Mick

      Agreed.

    • Elite Predator

      If I may, what exactly is wrong with CoD WW II? Genuinely concerned with the community’s mentality bcuz it seems quite a trend. A lot of players seem to be enjoying the game. The gameplay is one of the best iterations. Mechanics wise, feel of the weapons, and just the core gameplay is so good. If it’s the maps, then I understand where you’re coming from. Not everybody favors them although I find the maps to be just fine. I’m just curious why you think an online Chinese version of CoD is better than the main latest iteration. Does it just feel cool to say, or do you have legitimate causes what led you to feel this way? Bcuz from the way you’ve worded your comment (including WW II) I just don’t find any reason to shit on this game like how Infinite Warfare deserved it. Simply bcuz that game was oversaturated with supply drops being a main part of the game and cod points being thrown in our face like it’s a priority. I think WW II is solid and top notch. If anything, give the game critism and feedback is all I see fit what is deserved. On how to improve the game we have. I’m just sick and tired of this mentality where we get a good game and players still find something to say why it’s not good. If you said there are 1,2,3 things I don’t like about it, it would be valid. I don’t even think you looked at CoD online (Chinese version) and you’re saying it’s a better game than WW II. What makes you say that? Sorry about the long rant, I just feel like it just needed to be said, as I proceeded.

      • Subaru

        Don’t really want to sit here and type up a large rant about it, but I feel like it’s literally gone to COD’s stone age, it’s dull and punishes you for your play style.

        • That and the game barely fucking works. Holy shit it has to be the worst COD launch to date.

          • Been playing CoD for the past ten years and I never experienced a Call of Duty launch be so shit. WWII takes the cake

          • Elite Predator

            Yeah, but don’t you think it’s unwarranted to say a game is garbage bcuz developers are working with supposed dedicated servers in the UK and US, added new iterations such as HQ, War, 60 tick rate on server refresh rate. The game has been working fine for me since they fixed it on weekend launch. I’m pretty sure if they released this game’s beta to public and brought HQ, to stress test all the content, and the game’s servers to see how much it can handle, it most likely would have been good at launch. Battlefield four had a worse launch.

          • >Yeah, but don’t you think it’s unwarranted to say a game is garbage

            No, because people have the right to their opinions. And I didnt say the game was garbage.

            >Battlefield four had a worse launch.

            I’m not talking about Battlefield, am i

          • Elite Predator

            I didn’t say you did. What I’m saying is there’s a distinguish between server problems/balance issues/spawn algorithms and quality/content/graphics/overall feel of the game. What is so hard about pinpointing a flaw than calling the whole product trash

          • Then why did you reply to me about that then

          • TheProject

            Hey look its my buddy being called retarded again! lol

            Your life is sad kid.

          • Oh jeez it’s the guy that can never make an actual argument lol.

            My life is sad, who’s the one counting my comments? Lmao

          • BradyAlucard

            Don’t worry about him, he’s a troll. He’s meant to get on your nerves so that you can reply to him. Just say something funny and move on.

          • I stopped taking him seriously long ago.

          • TheProject

            lol its ok little buddy im sure itll get better for ya!

          • Did you give up at trying to argue with me? Got tired of the countless backpedaling you were doing? Lol you gotta resort to meaningless comments like this?

            Tell me my little pal, tell me how you’re really feeling

          • TheProject

            Its ok lil guy, tomorrow there will be more cod news and you can troll that thread all day 😀 So exciting. Hey how are those subs doing? You break 200 yet? Keep at it champ!!!

          • Yeah and maybe when that article comes out you can reply to me telling me my number of comments I have or that I comment a lot. Oh man I totally get that checkmate from you. You can make basic observations lmao. God youre terrible at this

          • TheProject

            See you then Champ!! Try to recruit a few more followers though, 200 is laughable but you knew that

          • Oh I forgot my little guy can count how many subs I got! Cute :^)

          • TheProject

            Sorry my lil dude, it is sadly obvious how desperate you are for followers and validation but you’ll have to look elsewhere 🙂 Your content is pathetic

          • Lol how am I desperate for followers and validation? Do you just pull these things out of your ass because can’t actually think of anything meaningful? LMAO

          • TheProject

            I see that one hit close to home bahahahah

          • Hit home? Lmao it’s a question. You pulling statements out of your ass isn’t new, so I’m not surprised you backpedal once again rofl

          • TheProject

            Im sorry it stings lil buddy, want some lotion?

          • TheProject

            Quick, think of another shitty rap lyric! Chanel you inner chuck d lil dude!

          • I think you need to act quick seeing how you don’t have an original thought in your head lmao

          • TheProject

            Aw whats wrong lil guy, that was all you had?? Couldnt come up with another one? That last one was fireeeee

          • *yawn*

          • TheProject

            That one was a little lazy for someone calling themselves Great. I think you should consider refining your act ya clown 🙂

          • Lol putting in effort for you? Lmao. I got nothing to worry about with you mate. Your responses are so vanilla.

          • TheProject

            You ever notice how many times you type out lol and lmao laughing at your own lame jokes? 🙂

          • Jokes? What jokes? These things I’m saying about you are accurate. I’m merely laughing at you pal, lmao

          • TheProject

            if only you weren’t so oblivious, you’d see the jokes on you. Ain’t your nigga and aint your pal, i know youre thirsty for any kind of friendship but ive already told ya youll have to look elsewhere, lil buddy

          • Jokes on me? Mate, you always reply to me first lmao. Your boring, vanilla comments that have no original thought anywhere always come at me first.

            I merely only feed the troll (you) probably because you have nothing going on in your life. And obviously I’m a good guy, I like to make you feel good about yourself :^) so if you trolling me gives you validation about yourself. Then so be it, PAL 😀

          • Elite Predator

            Also, I was agreeing to your statement idk where the confusion and the hostility built from. Also, mentioning Battlefield 4 just shows how immature the cod community is. Server problems don’t warrant and entire development of a whole game garbage. Battlefield 4 remains one of the favorites across the majority of the fan base of that franchise. They didn’t call the product trash, instead they addressed the problem they had with the game. So, I’m not sorry for voicing a statement on this, that being separate from my preference and calling a game trash bcuz it’s having connectivity problems is NOT warranted across any person in a right mind that shares common sense. Then again, I forgot who I’m dealing with. History across other franchises speak for this. Why does the cod community have to act like garbage about it and offer no real critism so that they can improve on the game. The guy above just doesn’t like this game. It’s his taste, I like this game bcuz it brought nostalgia and built on it. It’s easily the best looking Cod and it plays smooth so him saying that it is in Cods stone age doesn’t add up. The fact that he said “it punishes you for your playstyle” Okay, I know how cod plays across many of the games. This game plays good. We also know the difference today and cod 10 years ago… Next time don’t reply building an argument if you can’t back up where people have an opinion in. This isn’t an opinion. It comes down to preference, then it goes to what is, and what isn’t.

          • >Also, mentioning Battlefield 4 just shows how immature the cod community is. Server problems don’t warrant and entire development of a whole game garbage.

            Because someone calling a game garbage is childish now lmao

            >They didn’t call the product trash, instead they addressed the problem they had with the game.

            They totally did.

            >Next time don’t reply building an argument if you can’t back up where people have an opinion in. This isn’t an opinion. It comes down to preference, then it goes to what is, and what isn’t.

            What the fuck are you on about lmao

          • Elite Predator

            So you just chose what you wanted to reply to bro? Okay, I’m done. Besides, if ignorance and being stubborn to back up your original reply, have at it, so be it, and I’m not taking part of it.

          • Im not going to read and reply to all of meaningless 10 page rants about “community” and all this other garbage. It’s obvious to me you’re butthurt that people are calling this game garbage.

            The difference between me and you, is that i don’t give a rats ass what people think. I’m only concern with my thoughts and opinions. I don’t represent anyone in this “community” the only one I represent is myself

          • Elite Predator

            Dude I hope you realize you got a little something going personal there. Second of all, I represent a vision for the future games of Call Of Duty. Tired of developers listening to the wrong crowd at points. They’re on the right track, but who will be there to ignite the revolution opposing the casual player base that want to be fed kills easy with no skill. CoD with skill equals 10x better. This game is a hybrid I fear Treyarch will lean more to casual even more through their development now. I fear, not care the way you do. Sick kid you are bringing all your personal feelings on me.

          • >Second of all, I represent a vision for the future games of Call Of Duty.

            You are honestly so stuck up your own ass it’s impressive.

            >Tired of developers listening to the wrong crowd at points.

            Refer to first point again

            > I fear, not care the way you do. Sick kid you are bringing all your personal feelings on me.

            Nah, you totally care. A little too much.

          • Elite Predator

            Call Of Duty Ghosts was a great game many players didn’t know how to play. Infinity Ward lost the rest of it’s personality from Activision listening to people who had a hard time on Ghosts, a flawed but great Call Of Duty, around the time players got hyped for Titanfall, I know this bcz I remember this, I was there. Black Ops 2 remained popular with a separate fan base, you don’t know about this,and yet you claim like you do, lmaoo. Former creative studio and founder on Tony Hawk’s franchise, were then owned by Activision. Neversoft to become one inside Infinity Ward to compensate for loss of dozens of employees, reason why Ghosts and MW 3 were Infinity Ward games but not up to par from the loss after MW 2. Also why another franchise btw killed bcuz Activision will always put what’s their priority and give off a franchise to make another record from jt’s name. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. You nagged me about out my long paged paragraph, yet I am providing substantial background on the strategy of the design the devs took designing their games. So stop replying to people with insults that don’t even reside but within yourself. The fact you bash me without providful background on your opinions. Work on that, and everything else will follow. Maybe you’ll stop reading things upside down, square head, idjit.

          • >Call Of Duty Ghosts was a great game many players didn’t know how to play

            That’s subjective and that’s a generalisation.

            >you don’t know about this,and yet you claim like you do, lmaoo.

            This is why I skim through your replies. You just ramble on about useless shit. It’s almost like you jerk yourself off when typing.

            >You nagged me about out my long paged paragraph, yet I am providing substantial background on the strategy of the design the devs took designing their games.

            Refer to my last point. What you’re saying isnt dick. It’s just you rambling because you are butthurt. You haven’t countered anything at all. You just rambled on about how video games are made. We fucking know.

            >The fact you bash me without providful background on your opinions. Work on that, and everything else will follow. Maybe you’ll stop reading things upside down, square head, idjit.

            Again you being butthurt because people call this game shit. Lol. All you do is blah blah blah kid.

          • Elite Predator

            You are blind, LOL. How am I still like running around in a circle. You don’t listen to one word aside from pinpoint what narrative you twist it in. I’ll say it again for you, since you might have really missed it but I just think you can’t admit something to yourself and yet you felt like shit about something and you aren’t reading what I am saying clearly and yet here we are, again. That’s what I feel is going on with you. Again, the fact that YOU MISREAD ABOUT 25 THINGS, starting with you attacking me on your defense bcuz you thought I said you called the game shit, in I’ll say this once more this is starting to feel pathetic now, I didn’t say you called the game shit. I was just stating a good theory on why we had serious server issues this year aligning that it indeed is a bad launch. You are so square headedly retarded !!!!

          • >You don’t listen to one word aside from pinpoint what narrative you twist it in.

            Of course I’m not listening, I’m reading. And I’m not reading your rambling bullshit. You know, the shit takes a huge chunk of your replies. Which is why I only reply to certain points.

            >you feel like shit about something and you aren’t reading what I am saying clearly and yet here we are, again.

            Hard to understand through all the shit you write.

            >starting with you attacking me on your defense bcuz you thought I said you called the game shit, in I’ll say this once more this is starting to feel pathetic now

            Actually, its you that can’t read or understand anything. Your point “Yeah, but don’t you think it’s unwarranted to say a game is garbage”

            My original comment said nothing about the game being shit, but for some reason you replied to me about “the game being shit”

            I’m not putting words in your mouth. You brought the subject up to me first for no reason especially when it wasn’t mentioned in my original comment to begin with.

            > I was just stating a good theory on why we had serious server issues this year aligning that it indeed is a bad launch.

            By theory, you mean pleasuring yourself while you type another 10 page comment, right?

          • Elite Predator

            I asked you if you think it’s unwarranted. We were having server issues while explaining the process numerous players suspect that it is HQ, and probably dedicated servers are new for SHG and it overloaded on launch. Don’t you think if you need a point of view on something needs to stand out, it needs some background and sources? I don’t have the time for all that. This gets time that I’m sacrificing to get my point across, generally speaking, not for this debate brother. Usually a short comment aligns or it doesn’t on a game’s forum. Sorry I care a little too much about the future of Call Of Duty, but I seen where this goes. Like Black Ops III, post launch, they buffed everything to play at the same level field, leaving all weapons losing their uniqueness. Trust me, it will happen again and I’m not sure you might not even remember this or possibly know this. Anyways man, after Treyarch nerfed the recoil on literally every weapon in that game, the game just began to feel all to casual why suffering cheap deaths from weapons that all felt too casual. No recoil pattern, no uniqueness. The game lost its depth and it killed Black Ops III for me. I went back and played it over IW, but it wasn’t really the same till they fixed it back only a little. They did this to bring up kd for players under average. It was just a war I was battling, against the casual. But if it means that I have to get called names and lose my voice over on it, then it is not worth it, I say to that.

          • >I asked you if you think it’s unwarranted

            And I said no. The fact is, you still brought up something that wasn’t even in my original reply. That was my point

          • BradyAlucard

            “Call Of Duty Ghosts was a great game many players didn’t know how to play.”

            No, the game had the worst maps in the franchise. Now WWII takes the cake. You can’t fix poor design and layouts.

          • Here we go again..

            Honestly don’t worry about it too much, I feel like every time I read one of this assholes replies he has more hostility than a virgins asshole in a max security prison.

          • Subaru

            Just because a game seemingly works for you doesn’t mean their isn’t problems, the developer/publisher themselves have (kind of) acknowledged them and continuously say they’re working on them but a lot of them seem un-attended to.

          • BradyAlucard

            I don’t, the only fun I’ve had in this game was in War and Hardcore TDM, but even that doesn’t fix the fact that Sledgehammer are awful map designers. They can sure make them look pretty, but the layouts suck.

          • Elite Predator

            I seriously see no point in HQ. We’re about a month in, and it still doesn’t work properly, at least for me. It’s a cool mechanic, but i think that’s what’s been causing or caused all the problems for the servers at launch.

          • Subaru

            Yeah HQ sounded better than it is, there is no reason why we can’t have menu options for the shit inside there, if you’re going to make a social space go all in, integrate the whole menu and make sure it works otherwise there is no point, it takes too long to do things – stress test it in your beta instead of leaving it for launch.

            The only thing that I like in that is how my friends can watch me open the supply drops I earn (yes not buy via COD Points), now my friends can’t call me a liar when I get something good (as much as I’m not really a fan of supply drop system itself)

          • BradyAlucard

            There are some things that I find to be disappointing about HQ, as I feel it shouldn’t be so limiting, but other than that this was a feature that CoD needed. If people want to be brought together and/or find people to play with, well they just found their answer. There’s no reason not for it to come back unless it affecting the servers becomes a fact.

          • BradyAlucard

            That’s just a theory, though. I disagree, and want it to come back in future releases.

        • Elite Predator

          Oh, idk about that for you. I use just about everything. Such as Rifles, Smgs, Shotguns, Snipers, and even Lmgs, even semi auto rifles. The design of the maps actually accommodate my playstyle… across all classes except for Gustav Cannon. As for dull… I can’t say I enjoy every iteration being vibrant, rich colors. It’s the most thing that annoys me bcuz next year we’ll end up with a game that looks cartoony. Sorta like Black Ops III. It had very strong colors that stood out more than texture, lighting, graphics, the graphics was coded in with vibrant colors, and I can’t take cod games that are like that. At least not every single iteration that fans ask for. As for Cods stone age, they took the older graphics design and built on it. I think it looks beautiful. Gameplay is so smooth and up to date. Idk what you’re talking about.

          • Subaru

            The thing is, the guns are boring and feel the same and the game left out guns that were in the campaign for future DLC drops in supply drops, it’s a shame as a lot of them leaked weapons look/sound better than most of the “base” weapons.

            I quote base as these guns should of been at launch.

      • The CoD fanbase is always quick to jump on the bandwagon when it comes to bashing the new launch, I think this time it’s justified at points as the launch was abysmal and flawed to hell, but it’s getting old now.

        It’s not as bad as people make out, it’s a fun game that needs a fair bit of tweaking, but it’s not the worst CoD going. CoD Online looks interesting and a laugh but not as good as the past few CoD’s by a long shot. It would be fun to see some of the things from Online (like this new Hunger Games thing) in a later release though.

      • Sentinel

        The game is broken. The spawns are horrible and lag latency is awful. The time to kill is too much and in hardcore the weapons are very unbalanced. Overall my experience with ww2 has been bad. I cannot genuinely enjoy the game like I would if I were playing any other COD tittle. It is a shame because WW2 is a nice setting for the game. As a loyal fan, I have to say that I dislike the Sledgehammer game engine.

      • BradyAlucard

        Uh, no. The maps are awful and are among the worst in the franchise, it doesn’t have enough content, it’s too campy, it feels faster to die than to kill someone, the lobbies are sweaty, etc. But I’ll give Sledgehammer the fact that every gun in the game is at least usable one way or another versus AW. Right now, it’s just “meh” in its current state because the game would rather force you to play MLG than having you enjoy yourself (i.e. using more than a couple of guns or going for challenges/camos).

        The thing is, we didn’t get a good game this year, we got an alright game, but Sledgehammer has yet to prove themselves as a worthy 3rd studio.

  • ScOott

    Lol defo wouldn’t be in this CoD, maps got made any smaller we would be sitting on each other… would work better in a Battlefield game, not long now anyway till xbox players can play Battlegrounds Unkown

    • BradyAlucard

      Hopefully PlayerUnknown’s* Battlegrounds will come to PS4 soon too. This would be cool if Activision didn’t region lock this game.

      WWII has huge maps so they’d be way better if they were made smaller. Thing is, they’re as bad as Ghosts’s.

      • jt3z

        With Xbox now publishing the game its gonna be a while for PS4 players. My guess is a year like Tomb Raider

        • BradyAlucard

          Yeah, I know, but that would only be if their talks of extending it comes to fruition or not.

          It should be early 2018. It’s annoying to see so much timed crap.

      • jt3z

        Yes i noticed this too. The map sizes seem to have advanced movement in mind. Hell you are gonna be doing more running than killing ppl most of the time lol

      • ScOott

        Ww2 has huge maps? .. yh its part of early accsess like beta testing it, so hopefull come to ps4 later in the year next year.

        • BradyAlucard

          Yeah, they’re pretty huge, especially Gustav Cannon (the worst map in CoD history). They’re way larger than old boots on the ground games, and they don’t fit the fast-paced nature. Standoff is a perfect example of a perfect map.

          Hopefully early 2018 (I know what early access is). Any later is greedy.

          • ScOott

            Gustav yh, i felt the rest to be small, must just be me, it took a year to get ark and conan out of early accses stage .

          • BradyAlucard

            My problem with them is that there are too many ways to get shot from. I find them to be medium-sized.

            It’s nice that Early Access works like a beta process, though, however I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it’ll only be a few months.

          • TheAdversary

            Gustav Cannon is a medium-sized map at best. It’s about the size of Karachi from MW2.

          • BradyAlucard

            Not even close. If it’s not a large map then it’s a poorly-sized medium one.

            There’s not one map in this game that can be considered “small”.

          • Edtek

            Outskirts/rupture from WaW/Blops3 was pretty massive and atlas gorge even with advanced movement it still felt massive, even more so when it returned in MWR

          • BradyAlucard

            Outskirts didn’t come to BO3 until the final map pack, and I was thinking about that map specifically while I was typing my comment, so it’s convenient how you brought that up!

            Pipeline didn’t feel big in the original nor the remaster, but Sledgehammer does what they do best; ruined it.

    • bsktballmsu1

      the war maps are pretty large tho wouldn’t take too much more to make a battle royal map.

  • Liam

    Yayyy I hope they bring it to WW2

  • Mick

    Seems pretty cool.

  • Bet Treyarch is putting this into their next game too, and we’ll prob get 9 maps next year because of that game mode too lmao

    • CODoom

      Nope, next year it will be 8 maps then after 8 more years it will be 0 maps. Why? because COD can take ur money without providing anything in return, ur a slave.

      • Oh wow I’m a slave huh. I bet youre apart of anonymous huh. You got me

    • BradyAlucard

      Hey now, War has me going back to this game lol. Just like Squads in Ghosts, I bought it on PC just for that. Probably not going to touch the main mode.

  • Subaru

    I really feel this would be a better third mode as opposed to the CONSTANT zombies being shoved down our throat, a lot of fans say they want it but end up getting disappointed, stop asking for something you know you favour another studio for.

    This is a perfect third mode imo.

    Campaign,
    Multiplayer,
    Battle Royale

    A dream that won’t come true 🙁

    • PUBIC

      Don’t worry, COD didn’t have problem copying BF so there would be no problem in copying PUBG.

      • Liam

        Copying BF in which way sorry?

        • larry

          that would be “war mode,” liam. ripped off from battlefield 1.

          • TheAdversary

            I don’t get how WW2’s “War” is a rip-off of anything that Battlefield 1 brought to the table. The most that BF1 did was reimagine their Rush mode. People take objectives and move forward. Damn, what an innovation that only Dice were able to figure out in 2016. Gosh you must feel insulted that other games have modes that slightly resemble your jemstone of a game.

            With that silliness out of the way, why defend the one new thing in Battlefield that many games have already done? Is it because the SHG are trying to push more objective-based modes in their game, making Battlefield seem slightly less special in its design? Is it the fact that they both take place over 60 years in the past? Is that why people like you are pointing accusatory fingers? Maybe it’s because there’s no easier target for a Battlefield fan than Call of Duty.

          • larry

            it’s a rip-off, kiddo.

          • TheAdversary

            Care to explain how? That’s something you should at the very least attempt before calling me “kiddo.”

          • PUBIC

            Well, okay calling it copying or ripoff maybe is too much but they definitely got inspired by the BF mode. Seem they got to stick to the trends, remember when the first Titanfall came out and the jumpjetting became a thing? Then COD went the same route. BF1 introduced a “dynamic front” mode where u fight over different territories and it was perceived well by the gaming community so COD had to compete with their own version of the thing aaaand even improving it with the various objectives. So the latest trend is battle royales, can u guess in what direction COD will go on?

          • TheAdversary

            Appreciate the feedback. I wouldn’t say that Battlefield is a big inspiration for “War,” as it’s dynamic Rush spinoff ended up dead a few months after the game came out (not to mention that BF1 is already a dying game). War plays more like a spin on the “End of the Line” mode from Team Fortress 2, or it’s trendier counterpart, “Payload” from Overwatch, a game which CoD has been getting a lot of its ideas from. Makes sense too, as Blizzard is partnered with Activision.

          • PUBIC

            Yeah, could be. Have not played TF2 or Overwatch, anyway, COD draws some ideas from other games. From what I’m seeing on WWII war mode gameplays it looks fun.

          • larry

            Keep telling yourself they didn’t copy the idea as you and your buddies are storming objective apples. Headquarters was original too, right? Didn’t come from Destiny. Oh, and Sledgehammer’s Advanced Warfare drew no…”inspiration” from Titanfall, right? Psssht.

            In fact, isn’t what’s supposedly special about this game the fact that they’re emulating earlier versions of their own damn game? “Back to their roots” indeed.

            There is nothing the least bit innovative about this game. Prove me wrong.

          • TheAdversary

            I’m not here to argue about how devoid of originality CoD is. If you read my posts, you’d know that I was mocking you for thinking Battlefield 1 had anything original to throw onto the table. Also, War is not a copy of Battlefield 1’s “Operations.” It’s a rendition of “Payload,” from Overwatch. You sure must’ve felt good about yourself when you typed up that strawman, though. Well here’s my say. You’re an idiot.

          • larry

            It’s always the dummies calling others dummies! No surprise that they never realize it, I suppose. How could they?

            As per you lecture, I’ll be sure to thoroughly research all of a persons posts next time I answer a simple question that has nothing to do with them so I might intuit what heap of nonsense they might baselessly superimpose on an otherwise simple subject such as “what has cod copied from battlefield?” That seems perfectly reasonable and sane.

          • Elite Predator

            Actually bro, it has a similar driven mission mechanic that takes us from section to new section as objectives get complete and pushed. Payload was an idea already created from Treyarch with Safeguard where you had to escort the robot. We aren’t really escorting anything as our main priority in WW II’s War mode aside from escorting the tank in some sections. We have new areas to battle in, I haven’t played Operations in a while but I spent a lot of my time in Conquest, Domination and TDM, but as far I know Safeguard is what plays like Payload from Overwatch and that based type objective where both versions of the mode are essentially escorting something to a destination with an opposing team trying to stop it. And Treyarch came up with that game mode first if anybody wants to get technical.

          • TheAdversary

            Treyarch did not come up with such a mode. It goes back as far back (maybe even further) as Team Fortress 2, with their “End of the Line” mode. CoD doesn’t use innovation to push their titles. It uses brand momentum generated by CoD4, with a few tweaks and new gimmicks with each iteration. That’s completely fine, so long as the product is enjoyable. Unfortunately that hasn’t been the case for the past 5 CoD games. (Though I am sticking with WW2 since I love the setting)

          • Elite Predator

            Come to think of it, Black Ops II and III have that cartoon color shader. I can see how they could have looked at a stone age game previously adored by a wide fan base.

          • Elite Predator

            Let’s say you are correct, that they did take inspiration from operations in Battlefield one. I’d think they did, knowing they took a lot from former creative team behind Call Of Duty and Modern Warfare one & 2, for Black Ops III that is without a doubt and nobody can deny. Back to my point, just bcuz they copied Titanfall, that doesn’t mean Black Ops III was a bad game, and I reached max prestige in that Call Of Duty and remains one of my favorite and many fans. It’s the best selling CoD if not one of the best. The bigger picture is to enjoy these games. When I play War, sure it has a similar driven mission mechanic from section to section like Operations, but it’s also important to note the key distinction between Operations and War. War is it’s own twist of Operations, and it’s gotta be one of the best features in WW II.

          • BradyAlucard

            Tell me, kiddo, how did they copy Battlefield 1 within a span of one year? They couldn’t have possibly have known about Operations?

          • snake56

            Battlefield 1 doesn’t have a game mode with a tank on rails.
            The War mode is a reskin of Safeguard from Black Ops 3.

    • BradyAlucard

      I don’t see the problem with Zombies. It’s the best mode we’ve got, things like War and Battle Royale are perfect as side-modes.

  • SSR

    ofc

  • Qaotik

    Good thing I own a great PC

  • bsktballmsu1

    The thing with battle royal games is that you need a good amount of people playing it all the time and with Call of duty there are already several gamemodes that would take some of the player base away from battle royal in a cod game. So unless they dropped the price of the game or took out several gamemodes in MP I don’t think it would work too well unless they only want to do 48 or 52 players but 100 players would be much more fun. That’s why battle royal games are often free or cheaper because you need a large player base or else connections are atrocious.

    • RdJokr

      They’ll reduce the number of regular MP maps and use the excuse of “[new game mode] map is 2-3 times the effort of making a regular map”.

      • BradyAlucard

        War is awesome, though.

        • RdJokr

          Well, I’m not denying that, but you gotta admit, the reduction of regular maps is a big problem, especially with how poorly received the base maps might get. Case in point, WWII.

          • Jon

            Just because it is different doesn’t make it a problem

          • Elite Predator

            So now you see the problem in 9 maps? Or do you still think those extra three maps they’re shipping in DLC one weren’t cut from the main game? Bcuz this is the first time in history”dlc” maps got leaked from BETA FILES.

          • RdJokr

            Uhm… no, not really. If you remember from the PC beta for BO3, there were codes for DLC1 in there too.

          • BradyAlucard

            I understand that, but the War maps count whether anyone likes it or not. It *is* MP, they can get over it.

  • GoonzigProductions

  • Skrupn

    Should at least have 32 players minimum since the old cods on PC had that many and more on most servers, and a mode like this definitely needs more. COD was more fun when you could have that many players on maps without it being overcrowded as well, rather than boring 6v6. The maps were so fucking small in the last few games that even ground war 9v9 mode died out.

  • Hitman

    So all it is really is Free for All with no respawn. meh

    • TheAdversary

      I don’t think you’ve ever played a “battle royale” game.

      • Hitman

        Actually I play PUBG all the time so sit down.

        • TheAdversary

          That’s a rather contradictory statement. Playing PUBG should at least qualify you in understanding that the new mode isn’t as simple as FFA w/o respawning. What inspired you to say that?

        • Jon

          No you don’t

  • Sentinel

    I genuinely want a Modern FPS in my life!! There’s literally no game out there like so…at least for the consoles

    • BradyAlucard

      Why? Modern sucks, I’ve played plenty of modern FPS’s this generation, i.e. Battlefield 4/Hardline, Rainbow Six Siege, and soon Far Cry 5. I think we’ll get one, I just hope it’ll be either by Infinity Ward or Sledgehammer.

      • Sentinel

        Modern sucks?? You must be out of your mind! Let me rephrase that, a Call of Duty modern shooter. I swear if the next year COD is another ww2 shooter, it will be the first time in many years that I won’t buy the game. I rather have Infinity Ward make the game. Treyarch and Sledgehammer engines are too bulky on the gameplay side. Not as smooth as IW engine.

        • BradyAlucard

          Yes, because I play games to escape reality. The modern setting sucks.

          I disagree, all 3 of their iterations of the engine are smooth. Treyarch being the best.

    • Jon

      I agree.

  • David Rust

    China only? What kind of fuckery is this Activision?

    • Elite Predator

      That’s bcuz it’s a hybrid of everybody’s favorite Call Of Duty games Activision knows if they release it world wide, it will lean players more to play Call Of Duty online. It might also ruin their future plans for remastering titles.

    I managed to get cod online (its actually really easy) and its overrated if I’m being honest. Picking up loot in the battle royale is so frustrating its ridiculous
