Treyarch has shared on Reddit some updates on when fans can expect some modes to return to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode, alongside the debut of a new mode.
Ground War, which was introduced to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 with Operation Spectre Rising, brought a 50v50 LTM to the game for the very first time. Treyarch has now stated on Reddit that Ground War will return on Tuesday, July 30 on all platforms. There was no indication as to how long it will be the Featured Playlist for.
In addition, at the start of Operation Apocalypse Z, Treyarch revealed a brand new mode was coming to Blackout: a twist of Infected called Pandemic. Their blog post back in early July described the mode as:
This Operation’s upcoming limited-time mode is planned to feature a large-scale fight to survive enemies and zombies. Like Multiplayer’s Infected, when players are eliminated, they return as zombies looking to add more numbers to their horde. Infected players can respawn all the way up until the final Collapse, where the remaining squads must bunker down and outlast the Pandemic. The last squad of survivors will win.
In a Reddit comment responding to fan’s questions on the mode, Treyarch has stated that Pandemic mode will become available in Blackout in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 in August with the launch of the second half of Operation Apocalypse Z, which should include a Contraband Stream in the Black Market.
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.
