Operation Dark Divide Launches Sept. 23 on PS4

The sixth Operation of Black Ops 4 arrives Monday on PS4 with Operation Dark Divide, our upcoming superheroes vs. villains-themed season packed with all-new game content and customization gear, as well as our final two Black Ops Pass Multiplayer maps and the conclusion of the Black Ops 4 Zombies Aether story, “Tag der Toten”.

We can’t wait to share all the details in next week’s studio broadcast, where we’ll have world premiere gameplay footage of our upcoming Multiplayer maps, a walkthrough of our insane new Blackout experience, and of course, plenty to cover on the finale of Black Ops 4 Zombies with the dev team… along with a message from some very special guests. Stay tuned for more intel on Monday.

Our final major update of Operation Apocalypse Z is live today, including Jungle Flooded on PS4, environment updates for both the main map and Alcatraz in Blackout, Havelina AA50 weapon tuning, Stockpile’s return to Multiplayer, Ground War in Blackout, and Zombies gameplay improvements.

Jungle Flooded is our new free alt-weather map variant in Black Ops 4. We’re bringing unique gameplay elements to the Black Ops fan-favorite map with this one, including traversable water and an underwater capture point in Domination – and like Contraband Hurricane, additional light weather elements give this map a unique feel without affecting player visibility.

Jungle Flooded is now live in rotation starting today on PS4, and Arsenal Sandstorm has been shifted out of the map selection based on community feedback. Jump into a match and let us know what you think!

Blackout Map Environment Updates

As we close out the final days of Operation Apocalypse Z, the zombies have started their retreat and the apocalypse has ended in Blackout, bringing daylight back to both the main map and Alcatraz on all platforms. Players can expect new daytime lighting and brightness levels on the main map, and the return of the original afternoon environment in Alcatraz with this update.

Havelina AA50 Weapon Tuning

Today’s update includes two tuning changes for the Havelina AA50 sniper rifle: we’ve removed aim assist to require more precision for each EKIA, and corrected the damage values for the High Caliber II attachment. We’re also aware of an existing issue with paintjobs not showing up properly on the Havelina AA50, which should be fixed in a future update.

Stockpile and Ground War This Week

Post image

We’re bringing Stockpile to Multiplayer and Ground War back to Blackout this week on all platforms before we kick off Operation Dark Divide. Although we originally planned to bring Pandemic back to Blackout this week, we heard the community’s requests for more Ground War and made the call to swap it in for the last run of this Operation. Squad up and enjoy, and watch for more details soon on our newest limited-time mode in Blackout coming in our next Operation.Zombies Gameplay Improvements

This update delivers new gameplay improvements for Zombies players, including an increased ammo count for the M16 and multiple fixes for Hellhound spawning logic and their visual FX. Note: Today’s update also introduces a known issue that will incorrectly display blood vials on Primis Richtofen’s in-game character model when playing “Alpha Omega”, which is planned to be fixed in a future update along with an issue preventing Diamond Camo for the Hellion Salvo from properly unlocking.

Keep an eye out for more info on Zombies content coming in our next Operation, including the conclusion to the Black Ops 4 Aether story next week on PS4. Speaking of which…“Tag der Toten” Arrives Monday on PS4

Post image

We’re less than a week away from the launch of “Tag der Toten” on PS4, and we can’t wait to get the map into the community’s hands. As mentioned above, we’ll have plenty of details from the team before launch to prepare you for what awaits at the end of the Black Ops 4 Zombies Aether story. Stay tuned later this week for the announcement of Monday’s Operation Dark Divide studio broadcast.

With yesterday’s reveal of the official poster art and some other interesting bits of intel, you might think we’d stay quiet until Monday’s launch. But then, where’s the fun in that…?

Video shows off drastic evolution of Call of Duty Zombies from World at War to Cold War

This one is for the dedicated Zombies fans who have been around since Nacht der Untoten, as this video celebrates the evolution of Call of Duty Zombies.



Call of duty zombies evolution

For those Zombies fans who have been there from the start, here’s a great way to reminisce and relive the Call of Duty Zombies experience we all hold so dearly.

Call of Duty Zombies is still around in today’s Call of Duty, surviving ever since the 2008 classic World at War that started that fan-favorite game mode.

Although a lot has changed since then, players still love the mode, and what better way to bring back good old memories than this video showing the evolution of Zombies.

Call of Duty Zombies Evoltuion List

The video is by Evolution List on YouTube, a channel dedicated to showing the evolution of various games that have stood the test of time.

In the video, fans are given a walkthrough of Zombies from 2008 all the way to 2021, with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War being the latest entry in the high-profile Call of Duty franchise to feature a Zombies game mode that recently saw its newest map, Mauer der Toten, added in the Season 4 Reloaded update.

Although the video is fairly short, spanning only 5 minutes, viewers are given one classic Zombies map from each Call of Duty game that possessed Zombies.

Although the mode was mostly in Treyarch-developed Call of Duty games, there have been many variations of the mode, with the video also including WWII’s Zombies, Advanced Warfare’s Exo Zombies, CoD Mobile’s Zombies, and Infinite Warfare’s Zombies.

Some of the classic maps showcased include:

  • World at War’s Nacht der Untoten
  • Black Ops’ Five
  • Black Ops 3’s Shadows of Evil
  • Black Ops 4’s IX

Of course, there are many other maps shown in the video, but we don’t want to spoil it all!

If you’re a fan of Zombies, this is a great watch so make sure to check out the video below.

Call of Duty players want a Battlefield Portal inspired mode in the future

After FPS fans were blown away by Battlefield Portal’s reveal, Call of Duty fans want to see a similar mode in the future.



Battlefield Portal and Modern Warfare 2

Battlefield 2042’s REDACTED mode was finally announced at EA Play: Battlefield Portal. This is a hub for content from previous Battlefield games, and Call of Duty players want to see a similar mode in the future.

Like Battlefield, Call of Duty has depicted various theatres of war over the years, both real and fictional. Although Battlefield 2042 is set in the near future, as a throwback for long-time fans of the franchise, they’ve included Battlefield Portal.

This brings weapons, maps, vehicles, and more from Battlefield 1942, Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3 into one, ultimate sandbox experience. Impressed with the new mode, Call of Duty fans have been asking for a similar experience.

Battlefield Portal vehicles

Call of Duty fans have been desperate for remasters of their favorite games from the franchise, with Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer being the most prominent. Black Ops Cold War is chock-full of maps from Black Ops 2, but players still want to see more content from the games they grew up with.

Battlefield 2042 found the solution to this with their new Portal mode. With access to a ton of content from previous Battlefield games, players can create almost any custom game mode they can dream up.

“And that’s how you incorporate remastered content into your game,” said renowned industry insider Tom Henderson after seeing the reveal. He followed this by theorizing that Call of Duty will create something similar in the “next 5 years.”

His theory was met with resounding excitement, with many Call of Duty players wanting to see their favorite multiplayer and Zombies experiences return in the same way.

Battlefield Portal “truly could be the next BIG THING for creators,” said popular YouTuber Chaosxsilencer. “Imagine a Call of Duty Portal with BO2, BO3, WaW, MW2, MW3 assets all usable and customizable.”

“The custom game options available with #BATTLEFIELD2042 and the Battlefield Portal are amazing. So many options and ways to be creative and have fun,” said Call of Duty news account ModernWarzone. “@RavenSoftware we need things like this in Warzone, especially with Battlefield announcing this today.”

With how extensive of a backlog Call of Duty has, it’s very likely that Activision will take inspiration from Battlefield’s exciting new mode – and the demand for it is certainly there.

If you can’t wait to play Battlefield 2042, you can check out how to get access to the Open Beta in September.

Zombies World Record beaten after nearly 300 hours of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3

It took one Twitch streamer nearly 300 hours of gameplay to beat the World Record for Black Ops 3’s Nacht Der Untoten Zombies.



black ops 3 nacht der untoten

One player has done the unthinkable and beaten the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Nacht Der Untoten Zombies World Record by reaching round 255.

Zombies has a storied history dating all the way back to 2008 when Call of Duty: World at War came bundled with a bonus mini-game called ‘Nacht der Untoten.’ The legendary Nazi Zombies mode would go on to reach ridiculous levels of popularity to the point that Treyarch had to make extra Zombies maps.

Since then, virtually every single CoD title has included new versions and variations of the Zombies formula. Black Ops Cold War is currently enjoying the launch of Mauer Der Toten, the freshest Zombies experience.

However, one Twitch streamer has overlooked modern Zombies in favor of a previous game – Black Ops 3. After 20 days of playing the same game of Nacht Der Untoten on and off, a new World Record was set.

The feat was accomplished by CoD Zombies Twitch streamer TomPhantasy as he smashed the previous record by a staggering 40 rounds to reach Round 255.

Beginning his run on July 2, he spent the next 20 days clocking up nearly 300 hours of game time to obliterate the previous Nacht Der Untoten record.

Remarkably, he was only downed twice, and they both came once he’d surpassed the record figure anyway.

The final seconds of the footage are of the streamer clearing up the last few dregs of Zombies until the round icon in the bottom-left changes to 255.

This absolutely smashes the previous record of 216 rounds set by user Chihiro-516, and may never be beaten.

Dexerto was even able to secure an exclusive word with the streamer to get more reaction to his feat: “The Zombies community has been supporting me for months when I have been attempting this record through the highs and lows,” he said.

He continued: “I knew I had to keep going, because after 24.8 days the game freezes, This meant I had to play 13+ hours per day for those 25 days.”

Massive congratulations need to go to the player who was able to gut his way through an arduous three weeks of Zombies. With Mauer Der Toten very much the new Zombies craze, we wonder if he will one day attempt to set the record for it.

Also, for some more incredible accomplishments, check out the Cold War player who reached 10th Prestige without killing a single player.
