The latest Game Settings Update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on all platforms is live, and there’s new, limited time Black Ops Pass bonuses, return of Hot Pursuit, and more.

Here’s the details:

Party Up With Black Ops Pass + New Rewards for Pass Holders

Today, we’re excited to announce new rewards for Black Ops Pass owners (and their friends) as we prepare to kick off the second half of Operation Spectre Rising in early June, which will deliver new ways for all Black Ops 4players to earn in-game rewards.

Starting today, Black Ops Pass holders instantly grant access to all Black Ops Pass MP maps to their squadmates while playing in a party. Pass holders also now receive a bonus of 5 Reserve Crates (containing 15 Reserve items), plus a one-week bonus of 2X Tiers for themselves and their party members now through May 28th!

With these new rewards, Black Ops Pass holders now get access to:

  • 12 Multiplayer maps
  • 5 Zombies experiences
  • 4 unique Blackout characters
  • 5 Reserve Crates (one-time bonus)
  • 1,000 COD Points (one-time bonus)
  • 300 Nebulium Plasma (one-time bonus)
  • Access to all Black Ops Pass MP maps for party members
  • 2X Tier Boost for owners and their party members through May 28th

Check out the official trailer for details, and watch for more intel later this week on what’s in store for our next major update for all Black Ops 4 players.

Hot Pursuit Returns to Blackout

Hot Pursuit is back in Blackout this week on all platforms! Time to squad up and drop in again… and again and again. If you’re enjoying Hot Pursuit, let us know what you like most about the mode in the comments below – we’re always working on ways we can improve with the next revision.

Speaking of which, we’ve heard your feedback on the inclusion of shotguns in our latest version of Ambush, and we’ll be making some changes behind the scenes for its next release. While we heard from plenty of players who enjoyed getting the jump on their enemies with their favorite 12-gauge, we can definitely appreciate the beauty of snipers-and-knives gameplay. Watch out for the return of Ambush later this summer after Ground War makes its debut during the second half of Operation Spectre Rising.

Featured Playlist Updates and Improvements

We’ve also extended Prop Hunt’s placement in the Featured Playlist category as it quickly became our 2nd-most played MP game mode as of May 16th on PS4. Finally, we’ve included some improvements in Blackout and MP since our last update, including a fix for exploitable areas in Blackout’s main map and paintjobs showing up unexpectedly on weapons, as well as improvements for Prop Hunt and Control.

Here’s what’s new:

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.
