Black Ops 4 is Selling Blackout Battle Royale Mode as a Standalone Game for $30

For players who don't want no zombies.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is spinning off its multiplayer and Blackout battle royale mode into a separate retail package exclusive to Battle.net. The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Edition is priced at $29.99.

The Black Ops 4 Battle Edition cuts out the zombie mode and includes only Black Ops 4's multiplayer and Blackout battle royale mode. This seems aimed at players who are only interested in playing competitively online, though there will be an upgrade option available for players who want Zombies mode for 1,100 Call of Duty Points.

While there has been some pushback against Black Ops 4's loot economy, it seems Treyarch are moving forward with Blackout by teasing some new developments coming to its battle royale map. Whether this means a new mode is coming to Blackout, or a timed-event it's yet unclear.
