Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Pre-load the Black Ops 4 Private Beta now on Xbox One and PC

Published

Xbox One players can now start to pre-load the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Private MP Beta! If you pre-ordered Black Ops 4 digitally on the Xbox One Store, you can visit the Xbox Store, search up ‘Black Ops 4 Private Beta,’ and find the beta to download. Here’s the direct link.

And PC players, the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Beta can now be pre-loaded on Blizzard Battle.net. From what we’re hearing, all players who have a valid Battle.net account – regardless of pre-order — can actually download the beta now.

The beta does not go live until August 10 at 10AM PT on Xbox One and PC.

For those who pre-ordered at a retailer, Activision has not yet started to send out beta tokens. If you pre-ordered at a retailer, make sure you got a beta code from your retailer to redeem on callofduty.com/beta. Activision has not started to send out codes yet, which you’ll have to redeem on your platform to get access, so stay tuned for updates.


Original Story:

UPDATE: Xbox has started to send out this message on Xbox Live to users who have digitally pre-ordered Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, but you cannot download the beta still.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Private Beta has started to show up on the Xbox One Store for many users after a “COD BO4 Beta” ad showed up on the Dashboard.

The beta is not yet available for pre-load for those who pre-ordered the game, but the Xbox One Store says that the beta file is 32.5GB. The Xbox One store also says that the release date is August 9, 2018, which is most likely the pre-load start date for digital pre-orders. The PS4 beta was pre-loadable the day before the beta officially started as well.

We’ll update as learn more.

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

Published

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.
