Here’s a killer deal on one of the year’s biggest games. Amazon’s Deal of the Day for November 16 is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 for $40. That’s 33% off its regular price, and it applies to all platforms: PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Get it while it’s hot.
In case you’re thinking a better deal might come around on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, don’t get your hopes up. Most video game retailers have already released their Black Friday ads, and it looks like $40 is as low as it’s going to go. Best Buy and Target are going to discount Black Ops 4 to $45, while only Walmart is dropping the price to $40-and the game may sell out in the Black Friday scramble.
So if you’ve been waiting on a sale to buy Black Ops 4, now’s the time to grab it. You’re unlikely to find a lower price at any other time this year.
As for the game itself, it’s quite good. It’s comprised of a traditional multiplayer mode, plus a deep Zombies mode. But in place of a single-player campaign is a battle royale-style mode called Blackout that has around 100 players drop onto an island while a storm closes in from all sides. Like in Fortnite: Battle Royale, the last person or team standing wins.
In GameSpot’s 8/10 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 review, Kallie Plagge wrote, «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.»
