Call of Duty: Blackout is Exactly What You’d Expect Of a AAA Battle Royale

I love Call of Duty: Blackout for the same reason that I loved PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds when it first released in early access. Blackout gets straight to my favorite part of Battle Royales – using what I’ve found for an all or nothing skirmish with an equally desperate opponent – with the least amount of B.S. in the way.

But with the promise of “higher resolution textures, a new graphics engine, other graphical enhancements and improved gameplay mechanics,” the Beyond crew in the clip above discusses why they’re actually intrigued and interested in returning to AC3 and seeing what’s changed.
