Treyarch has announced on Twitter that they’re starting off the Holiday Season celebration this weekend with Double XP in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and a new mode in Blackout.
In both MP and Zombies, Double XP will be live starting December 14 at 10AM PT and ending on Monday, December 17 at 10AM PT.
For those playing Blackout, Treyarch is activating 2X Merits for that mode, alongside brining a new mode — Close Quarter Frenzy to Blackout. This marks the first new mode added to Blackout since the game’s launch. Close Quarter Frenzy was available during the beta for Blackout.
During the beta, Close Quarter Frenzy featured faster Collapse with SMGs, shotguns, handguns, and fists only. It is not clear if the mode will feature the same this weekend, so stay tuned.
Surprise! Starting tomorrow at 10AM PT, we’re kicking off the holiday season right all weekend long in #BlackOps4:
• 2XP in MP and Zombies
• 2X Merits in Blackout
• Close Quarters Frenzy in Blackout!

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.
Double XP live in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 through February 6
