In a blog post on their official website, Treyarch has provided the very first details on their extensive post launch plans for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, following the game’s launch on October 12.
We look forward to keeping up that dialogue, but our support of Black Ops 4 will go further: our goal is to deliver a steady stream of content to the entire community – the most active calendar of events in our history, period. Following launch, we’ll continue to add a variety of free content for the entire community across Multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout.
Here’s a list of what they have planned thus far, and have more free updates to come:
- Nuketown: An all-new take on this fan-favorite map will be landing in November for all players to enjoy. Treyarch announced Nuketown would be returning to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 back in June.
- Specialists: We have a number of new Specialists already in development, with our first brand new character coming in December.
- Blackout: There are so many places that we want to go with this game mode. The map and gameplay rules that you’ll experience at launch are just the beginning. We will continue to support the community with map updates, expansions and new Blackout modes for everyone.
- Events: In addition to the content above, we have many seasonal and time-limited events that will deliver new game modes and content to all players.
There’s a lot of new content coming to everyone, and we couldn’t be more excited about our community plans… we hope you are too.
More specific dates and information are coming as we get closer to launch and each content.
Beyond the free content, there will also be the Black Ops Pass releases — which includes 12 MP maps total through the season, 4 additional Zombies maps, and 4 Blackout characters.
Stay tuned for the latest news.
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.
