    Will this be COD's first foray into GAAS though?

    WW2 shied away even though it had lootboxes, I figure with COD making it a service based game would make the shareholders very happy.

    almost not worth buying on PC, far bigger player base on consoles and much less hackers.. but need XIM4 ($$) + it's like 60fps eww :p

    Hopefully by the time this is released xbox1 will have native support for keyboard and mouse (or cryptocurrency collapses and flood the market with gfx cards and just buy it on PC).
    So what's new in this iteration? Only new thing they can add is VR support.

    Doubt mouse and keyboard will ever be natively supported would create too much divide. Even though i would estimate at least 20% of players on cod and battlefield etc on consoles use a mouse and keyboard via some sort of emulation. I remember a ps3 game supported them natively, unreal tournament.

    As for this cod, black ops r known for crazy stories so expect an intense campaign. Black ops 3 story was too hard to follow, was fun campaign but story sucked. Black ops 1 and 2 had good campaigns though. Multi wise, expect much of the same if they change too much the loyal fans whinge, if they don't change enough the usual trolls whinge.

    meh.. I mean the BR sounds cool with the massive map made up of bits of fan favorite maps, but I cant see it working in this engine.. essentially sniper = teleport bullets = instawin.

    As for MP, the manual healing looks meh, its not what CoD is about and seems like a change they made just for sake of saying they made a change.

    The fact its on battlenet though makes me interested.. will it hold a bigger player base? dedicated servers? better anti cheat? who knows..

    Well you don’t have to worry as there is no campaign

    Joe sums up some points about this pretty well:

    • No campaign
    • Totally unrelated zombie mode now has 3 maps
    • It’s just a $60 Battle royal game with vehicle’s
    • Apparently proper pc optimized version not just a straight console port

    I watched a whole match and I dunno it kind of ticks all the right boxes as far a cod goes.. The lack of SP is messed up though. But if it has dedicated servers I'll probly grab it.. I think battlenet will help it hold players too.. In theory will run like a dream too with proper pc optimisation no port and stupid 91fps caps or unoptimised areas.. I'll refuse to pay more then $50 aud though.
