Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

‘Hot Pursuit’ mode returns to Blackout on April 23 in Black Ops 4

Published

When Operation Grand Heist began in Call of Duty Black Ops 4, the highlight mode of the season was Hot Pursuit in Blackout. Featured in most of the marketing and trailers, this spin on the Down, But Not Out limited time mode quickly became a fan favorite.

Recently Treyarch has started to add, or remove, featured limited time modes from Blackout playlists with no warning. Most recently on April 19 we saw the removal of Hot Pursuit and the addition of Hardcore Quads with zero heads-up. This left fans of the vehicle-centric mode a little displeased.

However, on April 22, Treyarch went to Reddit to reassure players that Hot Pursuit will make a return tomorrow!

Hot Pursuit will be back tomorrow! We brought back Hardcore Blackout for fans of the mode and to give new players a chance to try it out during Free Access this month, and we’ll continue to keep Blackout fresh with rotating LTMs in addition to the core playlists.

As a reminder, Blackout will continue to be free-to-play on all platforms for the remainder of April.

Operation Grand Heist is planned to end on April 30th for PS4 players, so make sure to rank up tiers and unlock the Rampage and Switchblade weapons before they’re tossed in the Reserves.

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.
