PlayStation today shared the list of the most downloaded games on the PlayStation 4 Store for the entire year of 2018, and Call of Duty took the number one spot, ahead of Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2.
The big winner for 2018? That would be Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, whose multiple Zombies experiences, best-in-class multiplayer, and blockbuster take on battle royale forged a new path forward for the genre-defining shooter.
The top 10 games on the PS4 Store in North America for 2018 were:
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
- Red Dead Redemption 2
- Marvel’s Spider Man
- God of War
- Grand Theft Auto V
- NBA 2k19
- FIFA 19
- Monster Hunter World
- Far Cry 5
- Madden NFL 19
The race between Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2 is expected to be close. We’re still awaiting the NPD Group data for the year, which is expected to release later this month.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 sales has not been as high as investors were expecting, but still is one of the most successful titles on current generation platforms. Call of Duty: WWII, 2017’s release, is currently the top selling Call of Duty game of this generation.

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.
