Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – Black Market Returns

Published

on

Activision and Treyarch have announced that the Black Market Customization System returns to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 starting today, Friday, October 19 on PS4, with Xbox One and PC to get this feature one week later on October 26.

The Black Market serves as the one-stop shop for awesome gear and new ways to express yourself in Black Ops 4 and brings big changes to give players more options to earn and enjoy new content. It starts with players having more choice than ever.

Treyarch has announced the new ‘Contraband Stream’ feature in the Black Market in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. It allows users to earn new items by just progressing in game, meaning there’s new ways to earn free loot within Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

The Contraband stream in the Black Market provides a progression path to earn the items you want simply by playing the game. That means a ton of new ways to show off your personal style.

Black Ops 4’s Contraband Items will be seasonal based through Operations, with new Operation delivering new content every few months. The first Operation is Operation First Strike, and it goes live on PS4 today. All of these streams are free for all players.

These Operations bring a ton of great gear and items that everyone can access:

  • All-New Blackout Characters: New playable characters will be released with each new Operation.
  • Signature Weapons
  • Specialists Outfits: Cool customization content built around themes for all Specialists in-game; you can even mix and match the look of your character within outfit sets.
  • Tags / Gestures: Whether you’re taunting opponents or celebrating a victory, Tags and Gestures are a perfect way to express yourself in the game.

The rewards as part of the system will be available in MP and Blackout.

In addition, within the Black Market, there will be additional themed gear to earn with Special Events. The first Special Event begins October 20 on PS4 (coming to Xbox One and PC a week later) and lets users earn Halloween-themed gear through the free Halloween Special Event stream.

Lastly, there’s also the new Blackjack’s Shop, which is coming in November. This allow users to get direct access of certain gear items through a store. The store will refresh weekly.

This is the place to go for direct purchase of certain pieces of gear with limited availability. The shop refreshes weekly with a variety of Items and gives players another way to get cool content.

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

on

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.
