Vahn confirms Blackout mode is in first person, re-affirms mode is available at launch

In a new interview with PlayStation Blog, David Vonderhaar, Studio Design Director at Treyarch, has confirmed that the Blackout Battle Royale mode is in first person.

Vahn says Call of Duty delivers Battle Royale uniquely because of the heritage and how there’s 10 years worth of Black Ops content that can be brought together for this mode. It’s “distinctly first person, obviously,” he says.

Vahn re-affirmed in his interview that the Blackout mode is available in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at launch on October 12. During the keynote reveal, Vahn stated that the map is 1500 times bigger than Nuketown. In this interview with PlayStation blog, he says that that estimate is on the conservative side, claiming it will end up being bigger than what they’re hinting at so far.

“1500 times bigger than Nuketown. And I think that’s probably being conservative really. We did some map math and you know it’s a big world. Biggest we’ve ever created for sure. And you navigate it with land, sea, and air vehicles – both new and inspired by the games that came before it.”

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.
