The first footage showcasing a closer look at the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s COD Caster mode has been shared after footage was shown in action at an international event for the game.
We saw a first look at the COD Caster mode earlier this month from some off-hand footage as well.
Now we have a closer up look at the COD Caster mode showcasing the 5v5 specialist layout across the top, the return of the fly cam (which was introduced in Call of Duty: WWII), and more. Fly cam allows the commentators to get a fly over view of the entire map and what’s happening around the map.
Here’s the footage:
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 introduces a big change to esports, as the game moves to a 5v5 format versus the previous 4v4. The first esports event for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is Dec 7-9 in Las Vegas, with more information on the event to be announced soon.
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.
