Details on the Shamrock & Awe Limited Time event in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Activision has shared new details on the Shamrock & Awe event in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which is a limited time event only live from now (on PS4) through March 26 in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

The new Limited Time event has gone live in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 with the newest patch update. The event comes to Xbox One and PC starting March 19.

In a new blog post, Activision detailed some of the new content available in all three modes.

New Blackout Content: 

  • Were you worried that the Blackout landscape wasn’t looking green enough? Don’t be: Aside from the spring colors affecting almost all the foliage, the Shamrock & Awe event changes all smoke to an attractive green color. Whether you’re lobbing a grenade or looking for a supply drop, expect a vibrant new hue to all your favorite smoke effects! Not only that, but supply drop boxes get a shamrock-themed makeover too.
  • You also might want to start searching for magical bronze pot hidden throughout the Blackout map; destroying these, rewards you with a Pot of Gold’s worth of paint cans!
  • Leprechaun magic is on show in random locations throughout the map as well; Homunculus Leprechauns to be precise: These noisy, bearded imps dance and grant wishes; dropping a wide variety of goodies if you give them a poke, so engage them before your enemies do.

Zombies Additions: 

  • Now less of a wonder weapon, and more of a red-bearded leprechaun with a top hat and bad attitude, the Homunculus transformation for this event is one of the additions in Zombies mode. The other involves encountering zombies sporting a distinctly different hue around their sunken eyeballs. What rewards do they offer? It’s a “mystery”!

Multiplayer: 

  • The multiplayer mode formerly known as Fracture is back and better than ever! Now known as Stockpile, enemies drop shamrocks (or dog tags once Shamrock & Awe is over), which you need to gather and place into your rainbow-filled Pots of Gold (or deposit sites). Expect this mode to continue once the festivities have come to an end.

And, Activision released a trailer for the new limited time event:

COD 2020 Teasers: Black Ops 4 Summit map, Treyarch social profile

Published

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

Published

on

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.
