Published

on

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

Today’s update brings back the Ambush game mode for Blackout, a fan favorite LTM for the Blackout Battle Royale mode. Ambush’s return brings some changes to the mode, including separate weapon balancing, different weapon availability, and more.

The current set up in game is Ambush Quads as the Featured Playlist.

From Treyarch:

Ambush Returns, Hot Pursuit to Follow

Now live this week on PS4, Xbox One, and PC: Ambush is back in Blackout! Get up close and personal to surprise your enemies, or pick them off from a distance before they even know you’re there. The rules have been updated in this new-and-improved version:

  • Sniper Rifles, Shotguns, and Bowie Knife only.
  • Final Collapse will always end in an open location.
  • SDM removed.
  • Concussion Grenade and Cluster Grenade removed.
  • ATV and ARAV removed.

We’re excited to bring back this sniper-friendly mode for Operation Spectre Rising before Hot Pursuit makes its way back into rotation later this month, so let us know what you think of the new Ambush throughout the week!

Barebones Deathmatch Moshpit Begins May 17

The community’s response to our Barebones game mode has been fantastic since it launched with TDM and DOM, and starting this Friday, we’re expanding on the old-school formula with Barebones Deathmatch Moshpit to introduce Kill Confirmed into the mix along with TDM. The same rules apply: no Specialist Weapons, no Special Issue Equipment, no Gear, and no Operator Mods allowed. Watch for this new Barebones variant in Multiplayer on Friday the 17th at 10AM PT.

We’ve also added time frames for our playlist rotations in Multiplayer and Blackout below for all platforms, to give a clearer view of when to expect playlist updates. As a reminder, playlist refreshes typically occur on Tuesdays and/or Fridays. Read on to see what’s new with 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.
