Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was the first and only non-story mode game in the popular first-person franchise. Now, however, images of the story mode, which are claimed to have been canceled, have appeared.
The Call of Duty series has come to the fore with story content that has been acclaimed over the years. But Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, released in 2018, was the first in the series to come without story mode. The game, which contains only multiplayer modes, has been criticized by fans who care about the story.
Although developer Treyarch says that the story mode for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was never among his plans, now some images have appeared that reveal that the game’s story mode was subsequently canceled. A gameplay video that Black Ops 4 allegedly belongs to story mode, was shared on Reddit.
The mission in the gameplay video showing the story mode of Black Ops 4 is asked to include the CEO of a company called Aquilus. In the early mission of the story, the character seems to have fought in an area with a monastery and seafood restaurant. Although the character models are not yet complete, the task is designed in general terms.
The region where the story footage passes seems to be modeled from the Black Ops 4 multiplayer map Seaside. Although Activision and Treyarch suggest that they are not working on the story mode, the gameplay footage clearly reveals that development has progressed to a certain point.
Earlier reports claimed that the story mode consistently included 2v2 multiplayer mechanics before being canceled. According to rumors, the story was then transformed into a more traditional single player campaign mode. However, this idea was also canceled and the series’ first battle royale mode evolved into Blackout.
