    I've never actually played a Battle Royale game, but playing Stalker or DayZ or any number of 'interesting' shooters you always had that thought 'why doesn't somebody make this in an engine that isn't held together by string and gaffer tape?'

    It is a bit tempting, but too many games right now.

    split screen is a bit fucking shit. incredibly tiny text boxes. horrible GIANT black boarders at sides... couple of game crashes.... bot difficulty has no 'mixed setting like WW2.

    absolutely shameful after last year's game got it all so right.

    Not a COD fan but I have watched a couple of streams of this, looks fun enough. I'm wondering if we are going to get a version in Gears 5, would not surprise me at all.

    I got the Deluxe digital edition that you got 2,400 points and a couple of bonus edition items, but I canít seem to find them in the game. Anyone knows where to find this stuff.

    @Pazie that stuff isn't in yet, normally they add the cod points stuff a couple of weeks after launch

    Couldn't be less interested this year, no sp is a black mark for me. It's a nice br mode but it's already feeling a bit over saturated so that buzz has gone for me too. Zombies stylistically looks nice but I'd have no one to play that with so I'm skipping, I just wouldn't get my monies worth.

    I've really enjoyed zombies with bots, they're actually really good!

    On another note, they've totally dropped the ball with this emote stuff, you can totally cheat in the multiplayer using them. Huge implications for the battle royal game, but also works in normal multiplayer.

    @AaronTurner I'm not convinced it's going to be a big problem, I haven't seen anyone using it yet and all it can possibly do is give you a little information about what's round a corner, at the expense of losing control for a second or two. I hope they'll just disable them for search and destroy and heist or make them keep the camera in first person

    I think it's a massive problem. If you are 1v1 in battle royale and your opponent can sit behind a hut or rock and corner peak then it's game breaking.

    They'll be patched within a week, I reckon.

    @AaronTurner I see what you mean, it gives an advantage, but I still don't think it's game breaking. In all the games I played yesterday I haven't seen anyone doing it yet in kill cam or spectator, and it's something that's quite easy for them to fix. Tie it to first person, ban it in some modes, or make it so it makes a loud noise and gives away where you are. I think they'll just tie it to first person.

    I don't see the corner peeking as a big deal, and while I haven't played yet, I've been watching loads of streamers on twitch at work, and nobody is using it.

    If anything it could slow the pace a bit towards the end of Blackout. But I wouldn't say it is a massive problem, or liken it to cheating.

    @Frogofdoom oh yeah I definitely see the potential, I'm just saying it doesn't seem to be used very much at the moment, it's very situational, and there's lots of ways it can be fixed.
    Saying they've ruined the game or that this means it's not worth playing would be hyperbole and you know how the Internet likes to overshadow anything good with doom and gloom.
    The mode is super fun and a massive achievement, 60fps on console, 100 players, stable servers day one, balanced weapons, split screen, a fun and varied map. Its awesome.

    Oh it is, but things like this spread pretty quickly. I would imagine a patch will be pretty swift to stop it.

    I'm getting quite tempted to get this. I'm not entirely sure why as I haven't played a multiplayer shooter in forever and my 35 year old's reactions are probably going to consign me to the dustbin of online mockery but it could be fun. Worth punting out for the full version or is there enough content in the pleb edition?

    Pleb edition.
    You'll get smashed in regular MP but Blackout is very different in play style and speed.

    @Derblington Thanks. I've been playing quite a lot of AC Odyssey so my ability to hide in a bush is now second to none. I'm hoping this is a transferable skill.

    Bah I'm really tempted to pick this up but I'm in Florida for 2 weeks from Friday (and working the next 3 nights) so logic says to wait it out and see what the community is like when I get back.

    The community is not going to die in Call of Duty in the first fortnight. It's got legs for the best part of the year at least.

    In the gif I doubt the person on the ground would probably have seen someone on the roof anyway, unless they were looking and the roof camper was jumping around, so in this instance I think it's not a big deal.

    But it is obviously scruby, and no need to have 360 control of the camera during emotes, so hopefully that goes. You'll prob still be able to position yourself to see round corners though. So doubt it will ever completely go.

    @ChiefGB on the plus side, you can basically play literally any other CoD and get the same experience as you would have had with a new CoD SP as they're all built from the same 5 set pieces anyway ;)
