For one day only, Best Buy is offering Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC for just $20, which is the lowest price we've yet seen for the 2018 entry in Activision's long-running first-person shooter franchise. With Prime Day 2019 coming up on Monday, there are going to be deals everywhere in the near future, but that assumes we'll live through the weekend, so seize the day and head over to Best Buy if duty calls to you. It's a great time to get the game, since the developers just released a big content update that adds a new multiplayer mode, specialist, and more.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 -- $20
Black Ops 4 breaks from previous entries in the series by not having a traditional, single-player campaign mode, instead focusing on multiplayer. The narrative component lives in solo missions, set between the events of Black Ops 2 and 3, that serve as tutorials for each of the game's specialists, many of whom are returning characters from previous entries. Gameplay is broadly divided into traditional multiplayer, the series' signature co-op zombie mode, and a new battle royale mode called Blackout, which GameSpot's Kallie Plagge thought was particularly well-executed in her Black Ops 4 review.
Frugal gamers have a lot to look forward to in the coming week with Prime Day, as well as all of the competing sales from other retailers like Dell, Ebay, and GameStop. The Amazon-owned Twitch is also getting in on it this year, with various streaming events as well as in-game goodies in Apex Legends and FIFA 19 for Prime subscribers.
