Though Black Friday 2018 isn’t here just yet, we’ve already caught wind of a number of planned deals. One of which we’ve highlighted here is for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the current game in the long-running series. In addition to featuring the traditional multiplayer and zombies modes, Treyarch’s newest entry debuted the franchise’s first jump into the battle royale craze with Blackout, which is among the game’s most well-received offerings.
We first saw Black Ops 4 pop up in the Target ad for $45, but it turns out it won’t have the cheapest way to buy the game. Best Buy ($45) and Walmart ads ($40) have also been released, so it’s currently Walmart where you can expect to get the price, pending any other deals that pop up. As of the time of this post, these Black Friday deals are not yet available, so going to these sites now will only show the current retail price. However, once Black Friday rolls around, you’ll be able to claim these titles at a discounted price.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is no doubt one of the more experimental entries in recent years, yet it still offered a satisfying package to dive into. While last year’s World War II was well received, Black Ops 4 offered a larger focus on giving players new ways to experience COD gameplay across its key gameplay pillars, which includes multiplayer, zombies–featuring multiple storylines and levels–the new Blackout battle royale game type, and a light story mode focusing on each of the playable Specialists.
Reviews editor Kallie Plagge gave the game an 8 in our review of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and stated: “Black Ops 4 isn’t short on content, and its three main modes are substantial. Multiplayer introduces more tactical mechanics without forcing you into them, and it largely strikes a good balance. Zombies has multiple deep, secret-filled maps to explore, though its returning characters don’t hold up and prove distracting. Finally, Blackout pushes Call of Duty in an entirely new direction, making use of aspects from both multiplayer and Zombies for a take on the battle royale genre that stands on its own. Sure, there isn’t a traditional single-player campaign, but with the depth and breadth of what is there, Black Ops 4 doesn’t need it.”
Here are the links to the deals you can find on Target, and we’ll update this post with any other deals that come in from other retailers. If you’re at all curious about World War II, there is also a planned Target deal for Call of Duty: WWII as well for $25. Again, these deals won’t go live till Black Friday, which takes place on November 23. Be sure to check back with GameSpot and other deals going live sometime later.
