Out of the Woods
It was always going to be tough for Treyarch to follow up on both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone. The twosome has created a powerhouse for the past 12 months, providing the franchise's devout fanbase with some of the best and most consistent content drops ever seen. But such is the Activision statement that...
Bop to the BlOps
Call of Duty had to do something in order to remain relevant. After a slew of yearly releases that failed to really move the needle, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 takes the franchise’s biggest risk yet by doubling down on its online multiplayer experience and ditching the single player campaign. Has it paid off? In a word, absolutely...
Nacht der Untoten was a bonus mode tacked onto Call of Duty: World at War. It had recycled assets, no voice acting, and a simple layout because Activision didn’t fund it. Nevertheless, Treyarch implemented the small map for the fun of it, which went on to not only become the underrated game’s defining legacy, but also a franchise...
With the summer gaming drought beginning and an onslaught of new shooters coming out later this year, now is the perfect time for a good Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC – for those who aren't sick of it yet, of course. Descent offers the usual four multiplayer maps and single Zombies level, and in spite of the familiarity, is the best DLC...
Sins of the sun
With game releases picking up around this time of year, Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC is a tough sell when you could be experiencing the whimsical magic of Ratchet & Clank or the masochistic beauty of Dark Souls III – and rightly so, considering that the strangely-named Eclipse isn't very special at all. The sun doesn't shine...
Splish splash, havin' a bloodbath
With seemingly every game getting in on the Season Pass trend – up to and including LEGO Marvel's Avengers – it's becoming increasingly difficult to be excited by DLCs these days. Some games, such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, have lovingly crafted expansions filled with content, while others games seem to suffer...
Despite sales remaining strong, it's safe to say that Call of Duty has been in a bit of a slump as of late. Although Advanced Warfare was well received, there were some rough patches, and most CoD fans still shudder whenever they hear the word Ghosts. Now it's time for Treyarch to pick up the mantle, and boy has the studio done well with...
Following the incredible performance of Call of Duty: Black Ops was always going to be a challenge. One of the most popular games in the series, it pulled the story to interesting new places and built upon the ever-great multiplayer; arguably, Treyarch out-did Infinity Ward at its own game. Direct sequel Call of Duty: Black Ops 2...
We go into every Call Of Duty with a degree of trepidation
By launch day the franchise's hype has usually got ahead of itself, giving the game impossible expectations to live up to. The Infinity Ward developed Modern Warfare 2 was greeted with so much rapture and excitement that when the game launched it felt like a let-down. The formula worked fine...
