Gamescom 2018 is in full force and now it's Activision's turn in the spotlight. They've showed off some Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice news, more on Destiny 2's Forsaken, and now they are diving a little deeper into their upcoming shooter, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

The latest gameplay video is all about the new map "Arsenal." According to Activision, "Arsenal is described as 'Hostile covert ops on a manufacturing facility of a powerful North American military defense contractor means someone may have stolen the keys to the castle.' Touring the map reveals a large, open manufacturing facility where war pays the bills."

The footage above is a Hardpoint match which gives interested fans an idea of how the new maps plays. What's even better is that we finally get to see a team that knows what an objective is (shade).

Each specialist has a special role to play with varying skills to ensure a match's success. Teams that work together and communicate will obviously have the advantage, as well as teams that keep their eye on the prize and don't just worry about individual K/D.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will release on Oct. 12 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The Battle Royale mode "Blackout" also has a beta coming up soon for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Here's the breakdown on how to participate for those wanting to try out the game early:

  • PC closed beta - Sept. 14th 10 a.m. PDT, open beta Sept. 15th 10 a.m. PDT
  • Xbox One beta - Sept. 14th, no specific time stated, assuming 10 a.m. PDT
