We also have some highly-requested bug fixes lined up for Tuesday that couldn’t be hotfixed before this next major game update. An issue with leveling up MKII Weapons is planned to be fixed in this update, as well as a remaining exploit on Grind. Thanks as always for the reports, and we appreciate your patience while we’ve nailed down these issues.Grav Assault Rifle Unlocked on PS4

With 15 million matches completed during our Community Challenge on PS4, the Grav assault rifle has now been unlocked for PS4 players in Multiplayer! Xbox One and PC players are already well past the 50% mark with their combined efforts, and will unlock the Grav in MP once the Community Challenge has been achieved across all platforms. Almost there!

On the competitive side, we’ve made a conscious decision to include the Grav in League Play. The Grav was designed with competitive play in mind, built with a set of attachments that are all unrestricted in the CWL ruleset. The release of the Grav gave us an opportunity to keep the competitive meta fresh with a new weapon available to everyone, and offers an alternative to the KN-57 or ICR-7 for mid-to-long range position play. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the performance and community/pro feedback for this weapon as we evaluate its place in the future of League Play.Featured Playlist Updates

We’ve added Map Pack Moshpit to the MP Featured Playlists with free access to Masquerade, Artifact, and WMD for all platforms, and for Zombies players on PC, we’ve replaced the Chaos and Aether Moshpits with individual playlists for each Zombies map. Enjoy the 2XP in all modes through Tuesday, and we’ll see you online.

Here’s what’s new in today’s update:

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.
