There’s a total of five vehicles in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout mode, with all five being revealed earlier this week by GameInformer. Vehicles were announced as part of Blackout back in May, giving players a way to get across the map faster.
One of the vehicles in Blackout is a Cargo Truck, which holds a total of 4 people, including 1 driver and 3 passengers. Cargo Truck, however, is a very unique vehicle in Blackout.
Passengers in the Cargo Truck are free to move around and shoot if they see enemies while a player drives the truck.
More importantly, the cargo truck will actually store items that may not have fit into your inventory — meaning it’s additional source of getting desired items across the map if you need as you move around in Blackout. Vahn also mentioned that the cargo truck does have an inventory limit, so once that limit is passed items will just start falling off the truck when attempting to place it on the vehicle.
More so, vehicles in Blackout have a disadvantage to keep the mode balanced. Vehicles are loud and are easy to destroy using RPGs that are available around the maps.
The cargo truck is particularly cool because it’s a moving platform so you’re not locked into a passenger seat,” says studio design director David Vonderhaar. “You can all freely move around the cargo truck.” This means you could have a friend drive you and the rest of your squad around as the three of you stand or lay prone in the back, unleashing fire on whatever foes you come across. Beyond acting as a moving platform for you and your buds, the cargo truck also lives up to its name and is useful for carting around loot to bypass individual inventory limits. “I would recommend going to a destination with a lot of stuff, grab whatever you can’t carry, and put it in the back of the cargo truck and take it with you,” Vonderhaar says.
Unfortunately, there’s also the danger of putting all your eggs in one basket and then having that basket explode. “We don’t make vehicles complicated to blow up,” Vonderhaar says with a smile. “There is a rocket launcher to find, after all.”
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.
