Players in the CWL Pro League have been given hands on access to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 while out at the MLG Arena in Columbus, and have been posting some of their immediate reactions to social media.
As undeniably the best Call of Duty players in the world, it is only fitting that professionals get some early hands on time with the upcoming Black Ops 4 and also have the opportunity to provide valuable feedback to developers at Treyarch.
The upcoming game is set to release around month earlier than usual for CoD release, on October 12th, meaning fans may expect a beta very soon.
But it is also typical for professional players to get some time with the game a bit earlier, as they are some of the most experienced and knowledgable fans.
And thankfully for all of us waiting for out own chance to get a shot at the game, the pro players have posted their thoughts after some serious playtime to Twitter – and it is generally positive.
Of course, this should all be taken with a grain of salt as spending a few hours with a game can give a much different experience than over the course of weeks and months, and the game may well change between now and launch.
But regardless, these are interesting insights from some of the most elite Call of Duty minds, so are definitely worth something at this early stage.

Black Ops 4 is truly an amazing game and I can’t wait to play it next year. It felt right in every way and they still have work to do. The final version will be elite

BLACK. OPS. 4. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS GAME TO DROP. The colors are vibrant and the movement is smooth.
