Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 January 31 Game Settings Update: Pro Series, Camos in Zombies, + More

Published

on

The latest Game Settings Update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is now live on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, alongside Update 1.12 for PC players.

This new Game Settings Update, alongside the patch for PC players, brings new features across modes, including the new Blackout Camo System on PS4, the new Pro Series MP playlist, new camo support in Zombies, and more.

From Treyarch:

MULTIPLAYER

For our competitive players – and for those who want to try MP with fewer Specialists in the mix – we’re launching our Pro Series Moshpit playlist today in the MP Featured category on all platforms. Now’s your chance to get a feel for how the pros play with new limitations set on Specialists, Scorestreaks, weapons, and more. Check the patch notes below for the full list of restrictions, and get those competitive loadouts ready for primetime.

ZOMBIES

We’ve added Mastery Camos (Gold, Diamond, Dark Matter) to Zombies on all platforms, as well as support for MastercraftsReactive Camos, and Black Market camos. You’ll be able to track your progress as you complete challenges in the Armory on your way to earning Mastery Camos.

Zombies players can also now unlock additional reticles by completing Reticle Challenges in the Armory, as well as customize their colors for more visual options in-game.

BLACKOUT

Blackout’s unique camo progression system arrives today on PS4, featuring a completely unique game mechanic to unlock new weapon camo variations on the path to GoldDiamond, and Dark Matter. This new mechanic is uniquely designed to reward players for exploration, looting, and survival in Blackout, without having to complete headshot challenges on every weapon.

In this new progression system, players collect Paint Cans throughout the world in each match, and bank them to unlock weapon camos in the order of their choice between matches. Paint Cans are a new resource in the world of Blackout, and you keep what you find even after you die… just be sure to watch your back while you’re looting.

Because the open world of Blackout is so mechanically different from Multiplayer and Zombies, we wanted this system to incentivize exploration during the cat-and-mouse game of battle royale. So drop in, bank those cans, unlock some camos, and let us know what you think of the new progression system.

Down But Not Out is also today’s Featured Playlist on Xbox One and PC, and will run through 10AM PT Tuesday, when Ambush takes the Featured Playlist slot on Xbox One and PC. We’re also turning on 2X Merits in Blackout all weekend long on all platforms – enjoy the grind!

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.
