Call of Duty Black Ops 4 has scored a crucial victory over Battlefield 5.
Battlefield V and Call of Duty Black Ops 4 were both announced alongside action-packed trailers earlier this month.
While both trailers have their critics, it’s the Battlefield V announcement video that has been most divisive.
At the time of writing, the official Call of Duty Black Ops 4 multiplayer trailer has a whopping 9.3 million views, while the Battlefield V announcement trailer has racked up an impressive 8.1 million views.
Of those 9.3 million views, Black Ops 4 has 340,000 likes and 202,000 dislikes.
That’s compared to 274,000 likes for the Battlefield V trailer and a disappointing 311,000 dislikes.
On the plus side for EA, it’s a far cry from the controversy surrounding the Call of Duty Infinite Warfare announcement trailer, which has racked up 3.7 million dislikes.
Battlefield V has been given an October 19 release date on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Xbox One users will be able to try the game from October 11, but only if they subscribe to EA Access.
Elsewhere, anybody who purchases the Deluxe Edition will be able to get their hands on the game from October 16.
Set in WW2, Battlefield V sees the return of the single-player War Stories mode, not to mention fan-favourite multiplayer mode Operations.
Black Ops 4, meanwhile, will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC from October 12.
Activision made headlines during the game’s announcement event by confirming that the upcoming Call of Duty won’t contain single-player.
Instead, players will be able to check out the game’s Battle Royale mode, titled Blackout.
Treyarch’s David Vonderhaar said that Blackout would offer “the kind of fast paced action” that the Call of Duty series is known for, not to mention the biggest Call of Duty map ever made.
