The latest game settings update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

On PlayStation 4, a new Special Event Stream is now live featuring the return of the KAP 45 weapon. More info on the stream is available here.

The new settings update, for all platforms, brought a new featured playlist for Multiplayer: Chaos Domination. Alongside Chaos Domination, Team Tactical Moshpit has returned.

Chaos Domination features:

  • Capture Time Per Objective Reduced to 3 Seconds
  • Score limit per round increased to 150
  • Score win limit increased to 300

Treyarch has also now added in the Black Ops Pass maps to all playlist in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 once again, following removing them last week because of an issue that was discovered. Players that own the Black Ops Pass can now play the maps in all playlists.

From Treyarch:

We’re stacking up the loot with a new four-week Special Event stream in the Black Market! Launching today on PS4, the Barbarians Event adds 25 new loot Tiers below the existing Operation Absolute Zero stream, so players can earn twice as much loot per Tier as usual. Unlockable rewards include new Outfits, Gestures, Calling Cards, a new Reactive Camo for the Hades LMG, and our newest earnable weapon, the KAP 45 full-auto pistol.

Our MP Featured Playlist selection is refreshed today with Chaos Domination taking the top spot, along with Team Tactical Moshpit, Mercenary Deathmatch Moshpit, Mercenary Hardcore Moshpit, and Mercenary Capture Moshpit in the Featured category. We’ve also added Elevation and Madagascar back to rotation for Black Ops Pass holders in standard and Hardcore playlists.

In Zombies, Gauntlets and new Epic Elixirs arrive on Xbox One and PC today! Players can take on 30 timed rounds of insane challenges in “Unsinkable”, and last even longer against the undead with the new Perk UpRefresh Mint, and Conflagration Liquidation Elixirs. As a reminder, we’ll also be testing out some fresh Concoction bundles in the Zombies Laboratory over the coming weeks – keep an eye out for new combinations and let us know what you think.

And as our Blackout Free Trial continues on all platforms, Down But Not Out kicks off on Xbox One and PC tomorrow at 10AM PT! Get ready to jump in as a squad and redeploy with each new Collapse as long as one of your teammates survives. We’ve also implemented new fixes for the looting interface on consoles to help players to tab through Stashes and prevent the d-pad from getting stuck while scrolling through Stashes.

COD 2020 Teasers: Black Ops 4 Summit map, Treyarch social profile

Published

on

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.
