Activision and PlayStation has announced that their partnership for Call of Duty is continuing in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. All Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 post launch content, including maps, specialist, and seasonal events will available first on PlayStation 4.
We are excited to announce that in our continued partnership with PlayStation, following the launch of the highly-anticipated game, PS4 players will get to play new Black Ops 4 content first on PS4. This means all the playable content coming to the Black Ops universe after the game’s release will come first to PS4, including new specialists and maps, as well as seasonal events.
In a separate post, Activision has confirmed that all Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 post launch content will be available 7 days early on PS4, which is different from the previous 30 days early time frame that existed.
Speaking of content, PlayStation 4 players will get to play new content first on PS4 by seven days.
This means all the playable content coming to the Black Ops universe following launch will land seven days early on PS4, including new specialists and maps, as well as seasonal events. After seven days, all new playable content will come to other platforms.
Treyarch provided the first details on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s post launch plans in a blog post yesterday, stating that there is plans for Black Ops 4’s post launch season to be the most active post launch season in the franchise’s history.
Some of the content announced is Nuketown, Specialists, in-game events, Blackout updates, and more. More details on that is available here.
The PlayStation deal with Activision started in 2015 with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. No end date for the partnership has been announced. The partnership includes early DLC access, marketing rights, early betas, and a esports partnership as the 2019 CWL season is once again presented by PS4.
COD 2020 Teasers: Black Ops 4 Summit map, Treyarch social profile
As we opened our new crates that Activision sent through, Black Ops 4’s Summit map got an update.
The screens in the center of the map in Black Ops 4 turned on which seem to match to what some of our slides show:
There’s also a look at clocks of 4 out of the 5 locations that some of us got as part of the slides to see:
These changes do appear to be new, especially the screens with the targets on them. Analyzing older images of the maps showcase that the screens were not showing the same thing.
In addition, Treyarch has updated their cover photo on social channels.
It’s getting cold out there…
Gameplay from Black Ops 4’s canceled campaign mode revealed
A user on Reddit, r/BlackOps4, has shared what appears to be the very first footage of gameplay from the canceled campaign mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which released in October 2018, was the first Call of Duty game to not have a traditional campaign mode, instead opting to have three online-based modes.
Treyarch insisted throughout the year that they really didn’t have plans for a campaign and were focusing on an online connected experience for Black Ops 4, but many reports and sources described the campaign as being too ambitious and canceled because of issues with development.
On Reddit, a user has shared about two minutes of alpha footage of the gameplay of Black Ops 4’s campaign. The campaign, in alpha-state footage (meaning its not complete), had a very similar HUD to the MP experience of Black Ops 4. The user claims that the campaign and MP were supposed to be connected, and that’s why the HUD is so similar.
The gameplay starts by showing a message of “FIND THE AQUILUS CEO.”
Here’s the gameplay footage:
The user who posted this has not said where they got this gameplay footage as of now. He said he only has this footage, alongside an augmented footage of the engine of BO4, which he is not releasing at this time.
