The latest Game Settings Update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is live on all platforms earlier today.
Treyarch has shared the patch notes on Reddit, alongside an update on what they’re tracking for Global Server Performance issues in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 across all modes of play.
Here’s the latest from Treyarch:
A note to our players experiencing low server populations in certain areas of the world, particularly South America and South Africa. Earlier this week, we rolled out an update to ensure Blackout matches always start up in these regions despite server population, and we’re constantly working to improve the online experience. We’ve also been rolling out network updates over the past two weeks to improve server performance around the globe. If you’re still experiencing problems with getting into a Blackout match in your region, let us know in the comments below. We’re always listening and working behind the scenes to make sure everyone in the Black Ops 4 community can have the best experience possible, regardless of where they live.
- Resolved an issue that caused hitching when playing in Quads.
- Added a message to the Defeat screen to clarify that losses are not (and have not been) counted when losing a game that was joined in progress.
- Resolved an issue in Gun Game where the end-of-match screen would display “Top 3” even if the player was not in the Top 3.
- Players who unlock the Marksman Mastery Challenge will now receive the XP Reward.
- Resolved an exploit where Create-a-Class changes in Custom Games could be carried over into Public Matches.
- Added UI elements to help players find new items in their inventory.
- Added new playlist images in the Lobby for various Hardcore game modes.
- Resolved an issue where the game’s version number could overlap with the player name on various menu screens.
- Resolved a UI error message that occurred when Black Ops Pass owners skipped the prompt to redeem their bonus.
Details on the PC specific changes in today’s update is available here.
COD 2020 Teasers: Black Ops 4 Summit map, Treyarch social profile
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
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.
