What to Expect From Today's Black Ops 4 Reveal—Watch it Here

Today's the day we learn a whole lot about what's in store for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Happy Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 reveal day! On this joyous day, we'll learn everything Activision deigns to tell us about the latest entry in its hugely popular shooter series. Where can we watch the presentation? What will we see? We'll help you with all the small details, so don't sweat 'em.

Our first official indication Black Ops 4 lives came by way of a hat, of all things. The Houston Rockets' James Harden donned a hat with the game's logo on it ("IIII" because "IV" is for Romans), which he wore in conjunction with camo gear in a TV appearance before a game. Confirmation about Black Ops 4's existence arrived from Activision followed shortly thereafter, as did the announcement for today's event.

Where and when can I watch the Black Ops 4 reveal?

The event starts at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET. Activision's official Call of Duty Twitch channel is airing the show (embed follows).

What can we expect to see during the Black Ops 4 reveal?

The biggest question mark hovering over Black Ops 4 right now is whether it has a single-player campaign mode. Rumors suggest it doesn't, and more rumors claim Activision is planning a battle royale mode (a la Fortnite and PUBG) to make up for its absence. We should find out for certain today. We already know the game's release date—October 12 2018—so at least that's out of the way.

Black Ops 4 is confirmed for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, but (more) rumors suggest a version is in the works for the Nintendo Switch, too. If that's true, we might hear something today. If we don't hear anything today, we might hear it at E3 2018. And if we don't hear it at E3, it's probably not going to happen.

We have a guide detailing everything there is to know about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Give it a look before showtime and keep an eye on it afterwards. It's updated constantly.
