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

As part of this update, Treyarch has added in a Special Fourth of July Contraband Stream into the Black Market across platforms, giving players new tiers to go through to unlock July 4th-themed gear. The new Tiers also includes the first Ultra Weapon Bribe, which gives players one dupe-protected Black Market weapon to use in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

The new tier system has 15 tiers total. Every other tier is a Reserve Case, and then the highest tier is an Ultra Weapon Bribe.

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.
