As Infinity Ward has been criticized in the past for capitalizing on tragic events like the Australia Forest Fires, only to turn around and apologize plus launch a large scale charity project supported in a small way by micro-transactions. Well, take this example of today’s update bringing in “Giant Infection” mode AKA Ground War Infected with 48 players and only 1 can survive as the ultimate winner, if they dare.
RealGamerNewZ Editor-In-Chief and GamersPrey joined up to try the new Giant Infection mode this morning and had some funny experiences in the game as zombies resort to group text chats to team up against the survivors. GamersPrey ended up being the final survivor and won the round in an epic showdown that had others fuming with some hilarious action to be seen there. But that’s not all the newest patch has provided gamers with.
Call of Duty battle royale became a reality upon the release of Black Ops 4 on October 12, 2018. Ever since, Treyarch’s take on the “100 enter, one leaves” sub-genre has risen to a high status of popularity with many gamers and critics alike praising it as one of the best battle royale experiences available. Arguably un-seating the first mega-hit in the battle royale sub-genre, PUBG, Blackout seems to have taken a strong second place position underneath Fortnite depending on who you talk to. Since Black Ops 4 didn’t release with a story mode campaign though, there is a certain crowd of people who may have skipped the game. Now, starting January 17, 2019, Treyarch will offer a free trial period for Blackout which gives potential players a chance to see what they’ve been missing.
