League Play is Here! (PS4)
Your home for competitive Multiplayer in Black Ops 4 arrives today on PS4 with the debut of the World League Hub on PS4! World League is now the new fourth pillar of the game, which you’ll see between Multiplayer and Blackout on the main menu. Now that you’ve had time to test out your competitive loadouts in the Pro Series Playlist in pubs, it’s time for the real deal.
Jump into our inaugural League Play Event to start playing for rank all week long. You’ll be competing against opponents matched at your skill level to earn Ladder Points and take top position in your Division Ladder. Win matches to earn Ladder Points – lose matches, and your Ladder Points go down. Finish as high as possible in your Division Ladder by the end of the event to advance through 20 ranks on your way to Diamond.
League Play is governed by the same CWL ruleset that the pros play by, and it’s the only mode in Multiplayer that utilizes skill-based matchmaking. Be sure to read our upcoming World League Rank System blog for the full details on our new ranking system, League Play Divisions, Ladder Points, Daily Bonuses, rank rewards, and more!
PC 1.13 Update + New Blackout Inventory System
Our 1.13 update is live on PC today, including the console updates detailed on Tuesday under the “PS4 and Xbox One” section, as well as several PC-exclusive updates and improvements. These include PC-specific MP weapon tuning updates across nearly every weapon class, such as faster rechamber speeds for bolt-action sniper rifles and improved ADS handling for assault rifles.
Also new to Blackout on PC: our updated inventory system now shows both weapons simultaneously, making it possible to view and manage attachments on both weapons in your inventory at once. Give it a shot in-game and let us know what you think!
Additional Weapon Support in Zombies (PS4)
The Zombies arsenal gets even bigger today on PS4 with added support for some of our newest weapons in the Zombies Armory, including the Switchblade X9 folding SMG and Rampage full-auto shotgun.
A New Secret Has Been Buried…
Speaking of which, we’ve heard reports of some experimental weaponry in the underground caverns of Ghost Town waiting for those who look closely enough…
Hot Pursuit Arrives Tomorrow on PS4
Get ready to start your engines… our all-new Hot Pursuit limited-time mode arrives tomorrow in Blackout on PS4, introducing three new vehicles into the mix with the SUV, PBR, and Muscle Car! Each vehicle has its own strategic advantage, so choose wisely.

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.
