Call of Duty has always been best as a tighter, more twitch shooter.
If included, a battle royale mode could offer something fresh for players as the franchise returns to a World War II setting that already feels a little exhausted following last year's release of Call of Duty: WWII. With enough interesting gameplay tweaks, that could be a ideal fit for Activision's workhorse. In those last player-standing shooters, 100 players drop onto a map and fight until only one person or team is left standing, and that game type has taken over the industry. The mode involves players trying to survive to be the last man standing.
According to the rumors, the mode will not be available in time for the game's scheduled October 2018 release and may be released separately via a title update. There also other options such as playing in squads or duos.
It appears the Battlefield franchise may not be the only well-established FPS series to potentially feature a battle royale mode. Well, in their own way both games can pull it off and are going to be very different experiences.
If it does perform well in the in-house tests, I could imagine it'll be a part of DICE's typically robust expansion roadmap for the Battlefield games. However, we are curious on what you think about this mode potentially being implemented into the newest Battlefield game. The reports are quite interesting since the two series have always kept their game modes and made just minor changes throughout the years. Not only did news come this morning that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will feature some sort of battle royal mode, now it looks like EA DICE is ready to jump into the mix.
