“What if Zombies had it’s own Battle Royale mode…”
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s battle royale mode, Blackout, pulls a lot from Black Ops’ past. Whether it’s full on Zombies locations, Multiplayer maps, or campaign skins, Blackout has a good mix of it all.
However one fan has an idea for a Zombies exclusive Blackout map. Youtube channel “FlickyTuts” has uploaded their own trailer for what they call ‘Blackout: Zombies’.
In the fan-made trailer, we hear Tank Dempsey’s voice over a montage of classic Zombies characters and enemies like Samantha and the Panzersoldat. The style of the trailer is very similar to Blackout’s first reveal trailer, which consisted of fly-over shots and slow panning around digitized players and environments.
FlickyTuts’ trailer is very well done, featuring highly detailed character models and effects, that could easily pass as the real deal from Treyarch. The trailer even ends with a plug to pre-order the fictional game to receive an Ultimis Richtofen Figurine.
In the Reddit post the creator made to share his work, he mentions that the original version he had in mind included more vehicles and props, however that became too ambitious.

The full fan-made trailer can be seen below:
While the video doesn’t include any details on how this mode would work, I still think it’s a very cool idea. The mode could possibly act as a huge Zombies map where large hoards of zombies attack 100 players until one is left standing. The game would need to render thousands of zombies at once to make the map feel populated, which may be technically impossible given modern consoles limitations.
Check out the Reddit post featuring the creator, and the person who did the voice over for Tank Dempsey, in the comment section.
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.
