Based upon a new Call of Duty blog post, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be getting a new ‘Supply Stream’ system for loot, where players can earn and unlock new gear as you progress through the different tiers.
The different tier system will allow players to unlock “the newest Uniforms, Weapon Variants and Emotes” in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. In addition, the Call of Duty blog post states that those who own the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Black Ops Pass will be able to “skip” 10 tiers with every new season in the game.
The brand-new Supply Stream system now grants you new gear as you progress through tiers. While other players are required to reach each tier organically, Black Ops Pass members can skip 10 tiers per season. What’s that mean? In short, you’ll get the chance to own the newest Uniforms, Weapon Variants and Emotes before everybody else.
The information has not been announced before, but the link to this Call of Duty Blog Post was included in an email Activision was sending out highlighting the different items in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The blog post details the benefits of the Black Ops Pass.
Activision has since removed this blog post from their website, so it’s not clear if this went up early or the information is inaccurate. Black Ops 4 is one of the first Call of Duty games since Call of Duty: Ghosts that does not have a sort of loot system in game at launch. There’s no way to get more Specialist outfits or gestures at all in game, unless you picked up a higher edition of the game at launch.
Activision has not stated anything about this yet, so we’ll update as we learn more information.
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.
