Our top pick of the week?

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
12/10/18

Taking a risk with their latest entry, this marks the first Call of Duty that features no single player campaign. With a focus on changing the multiplayer formula, expanding the well loved zombies aspect and introducing Blackout battle royale, we can’t be sure if this will be a success or a failure. What we can say though is that after so many years in the industry it’s always nice to see some of the comfortable big names try something risky.
