‘Black Ops 4’ Blackout Mode Can Be Played In Split-Screen
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 officially released today, and fans are finally able to get a taste of the long-anticipated Zombies and ‘Blackout’ battle royale action. Those booting up the game’s battle royale mode may have noticed something intriguing, though: Blackout can be played in split-screen, which should make for some seriously enjoyable couch co-op for those looking to hang out locally with a player 2.
The news comes by way of Reddit, which recently posted the split-screen reveal. While the feature itself certainly isn’t groundbreaking, couch co-op has seen a bit of a departure these past few years in favor of online play, so it is nice to see that Treyarch and Activision are bringing the feature back in a big way.
As with most other battle royale games, Blackout sees players dropping onto their preferred location on the map and duking it out until there’s one person – or squad – left standing. As it stands, the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout mode represents some exciting competition to the likes of Fortnite and PUBG, and having the ability to play the mode in local co-op has the potential to blow its rivals out of the water. Here’s what fans can look forward to in Black Ops 4:
“Black Ops is back! Featuring gritty, grounded, fluid Multiplayer combat, the biggest Zombies offering ever with three full undead adventures at launch, and Blackout, where the universe of Black Ops comes to life in one massive battle royale experience featuring the largest map in Call of Duty history, signature Black Ops combat, characters, locations and weapons from the entire Black Ops series.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
