After a brief exchange of fire, the squad left, and Simon "Ghost" Riley entered the scene and made some mysterious comments to Captain Price by radio. The scene then stepped back to show a huge map marked by active combat-including vehicles, explosions and many visible combatants-while another group of soldiers fell from the plane onto the battlefield. In the background, a ring of gas clouds seems to surround the battlefield.
Both skydiving and the "ring" strongly suggested the introduction of the Battle Royale mode, the power failure mode of "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4". Another signal is coming? The game now has a locked "Category" menu on its mode selection screen, as well as campaign, multiplayer, and cooperative options.
