With Treyarch taking an different approach to their seasonal events and Operation scheduling this go-around, there has been some confusion when the next Operation actually begins.
To clear it all up, Treyarch has confirmed that “Days of Summer will be the next seasonal game update that kicks off the second half of Operation Spectre Rising”. They continued by reaffirming the release window for the fifth Operation, which will be in July.
What this means is that there won’t be a new specialist or some monumental change to Black Ops 4 with the start of Days of Summer because it is still under the Operation Spectre Rising umbrella.
This also means that players should not expect a new Zombies map as well. DLC 3 will presumably launch sometime within the fifth Operation in July.
Treyarch has also confirmed that a new Sniper will be on its way to Black Ops 4 during the Days of Summer event.
Lastly, with the first half of Operation Spectre Rising coming to end, the current items in the Contraband Stream will be going away as well. Make sure you rank up through all 50 tiers before then if you want your hands on the Tigershark LMG.
Days of Summer is our next seasonal game update that kicks off the second half of Operation Spectre Rising. Our fifth Operation is planned to launch in July.— Treyarch Studios (@Treyarch) May 24, 2019
As of yet, all we know about Days of Summer is that it will include “New Blackout modes, new map updates, new weapons, and more.”
We’ll have more details on Days of Summer as soon as they’re unveiled.
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.
