Limited time Blackout playlist will remain in Black Ops 4 until 1PM EST on 18 December.
On 17 December, Treyarch has announced that the Close Quarters Frenzy mode in Blackout will remain active for another 24 hours.
Since their tweet came at 1:44 PM EST, expect to see this limited time playlist go away during tomorrows daily reset.
The mode began on 14 December and was schedule to run through the weekend until 17 December, however those plans have changed.
We’ve extended Close Quarters Frenzy for another 24 hours in #Blackout to give everyone a little more time to cozy up for the holidays… enjoy!

Close Quarters Frenzy is a variant of the Quads game mode in which Submachine guns, Shotguns, and Pistols exclusively spawn. There also is an increased collapse speed which makes the matches go by way quicker.
Players will also see a newly redesigned Blackout map which features a remade version of Black Ops 2 map, Hijacked, as well as autumn leaves and foliage all around.
This game mode was first shown off and tested during Black Ops 4’s Beta earlier this year. The mode made its reintroduction in the full game during the ongoing “Operation Absolute Zero” content season.
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.
