Activision revealed Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, with a handful of trailers, and confirmed prior suspicions that there would be no single-player.

First off, the zombies – this first trailer is for a mode called ‘Voyage of Despair’:

It’s reminiscent of Timesplitters the way it’s redressed in period detail: seemingly a 1930s-looking casino replete with fedoras and black-tie. Things take a decidedly occult turn toward the end as well – intriguing.

The initial set of zombie maps have been shown off, and there are three different missions that will launch with the game.

Along with ‘Voyage of Despair’ comes ‘IX’, an ‘all new zombies experience’:

It looks quite brilliantly loopy, hopping back to an ancient gladiatorial arena and pitting the heroes against hordes of the undead.

Activision also revealed the game’s multiplayer element too. The trailer below shows off the standard multiplayer in action:

But also Blackout – the new battle royale mode headed to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The official description reads:

“In Blackout, Black Ops comes to life in one massive battle royale experience, combining Black Ops signature combat and the biggest map in Call of Duty history. Play as fan favorite characters and battle through iconic settings from the Black Ops universe. It’s a collision course bringing together the worlds of Black Ops in an all-out survival and elimination experience featuring weapons; equipment; land, sea, and air vehicles; RC-XDs; traps; and even Zombies in an experience that is uniquely Black Ops.”

Behold the trailer:
