What Is Battle Royale?

Last Man Standing With A Twist

Black Ops 4 Blackout Mode

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

Black Ops 4 Blackout

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.

Season 2 Road Map Points To More Game Modes
