Activision has announced a new edition of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 that is available exclusively for PC players on Blizzard Battle.net.
The new edition is called the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Edition, and it only includes the MP and Blackout mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 for a lower price of $39.99. The Zombies mode is not included in this edition.
As an introductory offer, the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Edition is available for $29.99. This price expires January 6, 2019.
“Since launch, the response on Black Ops 4 from the PC community has been fantastic, and the game has continued to drive strong engagement with players,” said Rob Schonfeld, Senior Vice President, Global Digital and Mobile Commerce at Activision. “The Black Ops 4 Battle Edition is a great way to bring even more new players into the game and allow them to jump into the incredibly fun Multiplayer and Blackout modes which fans have loved so much since day one.”
The Black Ops 4 Battle Edition offers the full Multiplayer and Blackout experiences, and is compatible with all existing copies and online lobbies for those modes on PC. For fans interested in getting their hands on even more, an upgrade to the Digital Standard Edition on PC – includes Zombies mode, 1,100 Call of Duty Points and Digital Edition bonus items – will also be available for purchase.
The release of the Battle Edition kicks off a packed December calendar featuring themed holiday events, new personalization items, and a variety of free content coming to players.

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.
Double XP live in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 through February 6
