Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Treyarch says they’ve got improvements planned to picking up items in Blackout

Published

One of the first complaints coming out of the Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta on PlayStation 4 is the difficulty of equipping/picking up items in the match. Players have to really look at the item and be very close to it, then press and hold square in order to equip each item which sometimes takes away from the match’s momentum or can cause you to get caught off guard by an enemy.

Vahn has stated on Twitter, first off, that they don’t want to mess with or change the classic “Call of Duty button” schematic to reload, change weapons, etc. Those are a priority over picking up items.

Vahn followed up by stating that PC players will be able to easily equip with button re-mapping, and they want to match the experience across platforms. Vahn also stated that they don’t want players stuck in a fight and then press square to reload, but it picks up a weapon instead. There has to be a distinction.

Lastly, Vahn has confirmed that the final Blackout game, at launch, has improvements to the picking up system to allow you to not have to look directly at items to pick them up – rather being close to the item will allow you to press square to pick up the item.

Stay tuned for the latest Blackout news.

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

Published

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.
