I can’t imagine myself playing a game without a campaign or a storyline.
It makes me feel incomplete as I would be running around like a headless chicken – lost and wondering what my purpose in the game is. A game like Call of Duty without the campaign is like having a meal with no main dish.
When I first heard that Treyarch will be abandoning the campaign for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, I feared the worst. Will this be the first game from the Call of Duty line I will not enjoy? I always look forward to playing the campaign as single player stories are what make Call of Duty so much fun. Playing single player stories for hours and learning about the characters and their story is what makes the game great.
No Campaign, Now What?
When I first started Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, my first question was, now that there is no campaign, what should I do first?
As I got into the game, I noticed two new modes: Blackout and Specialist HQ, and Multiplayer and Zombies. Specialist HQ is where I found the characters and their backstories, which Treyarch had replaced the single player campaign with a tutorial mission that the characters we use in competitive mode. The tutorial mission had simple objectives given to understand the Specialist’s activities and role in the competitive mode. Having played two specialists in Specialist HQ, I must say it is refreshing and made me change my mind a little towards not having a single player story.
