Call of Duty rises to #1 on Twitch with Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta

Published

Call of Duty back on top? Activision and Treyarch officially put the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta servers live on live on PlayStation 4, giving fans a first look at a Call of Duty Battle Royale experience. Blackout combines the history of the Call of Duty: Black Ops series into one large Battle Royale universe that’s “uniquely Black Ops,” Activision says.

Today, with the start of the PS4 beta, many were eager to see how the Blackout beta would look and play. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 took the #1 spot on Twitch as the beta started on PS4, making it the most viewed game ahead of League of Legends and Fortnite. Some of the peak numbers are higher than Call of Duty has had in a long time.

Call of Duty enters the crowed Battle Royale genre as Fortnite is the #1 game in the world. Blackout caters more to the fans who want an alternative to PUBG or even want a FPS-type BR on consoles, as PS4’s next FPS alternative has been H1Z1 recently.

The Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta is live on PS4 now through September 17. The full schedule for each platform is available here.

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.
