Gauntlets and New Elixirs in Black Ops 4 Zombies available now on Xbox One and PC

Published

First debuted last week on PlayStation 4, the new Gauntlet feature, alongside brand new elixirs is coming to Xbox One and PC to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on January 22, 2019.

Treyarch announced this feature prior to launch, but held the release till the stability issues surrounding Zombies were fully addresses. Treyarch launched the Gauntlet feature on 115 Day on PlayStation 4, and now the new feature is coming to Xbox One and PC on January 22. There’s only one Gauntlet available, with another coming later this month.

We’re excited to debut Gauntlets in Zombies starting with “Unsinkable” in Voyage of Despair! Gauntlets in Zombies are endlessly-replayable, 30-round challenges with unique rules governing gameplay in each round. Players earn medals and tiered rewards for completing rounds 10, 20, and 30, as well as a unique reward to adorn your Emblem for completing round 30 without failing a round. Sound easy? Think again.

The rules of engagement change each round, including weapon restrictions, area defense challenges, health-drain modifiers, time limitations, and much more. You and your crew will earn a Strike by failing a round, and after three Strikes, it’s game over. Mastering all 30 rounds will test the skills of even the most seasoned veterans, and only the best zombie killers will conquer an entire Gauntlet with zero Strikes.

Here’s what’s coming on Xbox One and PC:

  • Gauntlets
    • Unsinkable” Gauntlet live in Voyage of Despair.
    • 30 rounds of challenges with unique rules for each round.
    • Players earn medals and tiered rewards for completing rounds 10, 20, and 30, as well as an additional reward for completing round 30 without failing a round.
    • Players are issued a Strike by failing a round, with the game ending after three Strikes.
    • All matches are timed for competitive speed-run support.
  • New Elixirs
    • Perk Up (Epic): Gain 4 additional random Perks that are not in your loadout.
    • Refresh Mint (Epic): Refreshes the cooldowns for Equipment, Perks, and Special Weapons for your entire team.
    • Conflagration Liquidation (Epic): Spawn a Bonfire Sale power-up.

Stay tuned for news as Xbox One and PC gets this new feature. Also check out what Treyarch has planned for Zombies in the future in the 115 Day post here.

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.
