According to a Reddit reply on Jan. 8th from Treyarch, Black Ops 4 could see a Hardcore Mercenary Playlist coming in a new patch.
Updated Jan 8th: Treyarch has added Mercenary Hardcore Moshpit to Black Ops 4 as of Jan. 8th as part of the weekly playlist update. No downloaded patch was released by Treyarch.
The reply to a user’s request to add a Hardcore variant of the Mercenary Playlists hints at the feature’s soon to be coming release.
Mercenary Playlists disallow all parties and can only be played when playing alone. The playlists allow solo Call of Duty players to play without the fear of running into parties playing together.
Though the reply does not hint at any other features as of yet, several big changes and additions promised by Treyarch could be coming in the next few patches.
On Jan. 4th, David Vonderhaar tweeted an image of a new stash system for Blackout. The UI change would help with the looting system’s current clunky nature and streamline the looting process. Vonderhaar did not give an ETA for release at the time.
Additionally, the highly anticipated release of League Play still looms on the horizon. The game mode would bring an in-game competitive playlist with a rule-set and ranking system. The feature was originally scheduled for release in December, but was delayed until “Early 2019” by Treyarch.
We will keep you updated on all these features as more information comes out. Follow @CharlieIntel on Twitter to get the latest Call of Duty news, tips, and info as it is posted.
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.
