What Is Battle Royale?
Last Man Standing With A Twist
Image is from the Black Ops 4 Blackout Trailer
Battle Royale is a recent game mode popularized by games such as PUBG and Fortnite. The main goal of the game mode is to survive and the twist is that players must scramble and fight against each other for resources. There is a certain degree of randomness, making each Battle Royal match unique.
Implemented In Black Ops 4
Battle Royale was first implemented in a Call of Duty game in Black Ops 4 as the "Blackout" Game Mode. This makes it very likely for the developers to use that as a blueprint and have it in the current setting with COD:MW.
