Treyarch has just given some concrete dates on new modes and events coming this week to Call of Duty Black Ops 4.
The highlight here is undoubtedly the return of Ambush mode in Blackout on May 14. Unofficially called “Ambush 2.0” the ruleset here has changed up a bit since last we saw it. Here’s how Treyarch is describing it:
We’ve updated Ambush for Operation Spectre Rising, and it’s coming back to all platforms later this month with a new ruleset. Players will now have access to all Sniper Rifles (with the exception of the SDM) plus Shotguns and the Bowie Knife, and we’re removing Concussion Grenades, Cluster Grenades, ATVs, and ARAV vehicles to focus the action on pure gunplay this time around. Jump in, get some matches under your belt, and let us know what you think of the new revisions once it’s live.
Alongside the return of a fan-favorite LTM, Zombies players are welcomed to 2X Nebulium Plasma from May 16 through May 23. These resources are used to purchase Elixers and Talismans in Black Ops 4.
Lastly, Multiplayer fanatics will receive a new featured playlist on May 17. Barebones Deathmatch Moshpit takes the Barebones rule set and bundles together Team Deathmatch and Kill Confirmed into one nice playlist.
Since the announcement doesn’t specify any specific platforms, it looks like all three of these updates will go live on Xbox One, PC, and PS4 at the same time!
