Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout gets custom games next week, Treyarch has announced.
Blackout custom games will let players drop into their own private match of Call of Duty's battle royale to explore the map, the developer said in a post on the Black Ops 4 subreddit.
You'll be able to visit destinations at your own pace and practice with teams of friends.
Treyarch has revealed a big update coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - and it sounds pretty promising.
Operation Absolute Zero launches next week on PlayStation 4 (other platforms will get it later), and it makes a raft of key changes to the game.
As outlined on Treyarch's blog, the update adds Black Ops 4's first post-launch specialist, called Zero. She's a hacker who can be used in multiplayer and Blackout, and is described as someone who can "disrupt and distract" her enemies, bringing countermeasures to the game.
Just in time for Christmas, Activision is selling a cheaper version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PC that comes without Zombies mode.
The Battle Edition, as it's known, launches exclusively on Battle.net priced 26.99. It includes competitive multiplayer and Blackout only.
The publisher has made the competitive multiplayer mode of previous Call of Duty games available standalone on Steam before, but these have usually been limited to timed promotions.
Dataminers have uncovered night and rain versions of a couple of Call of Duty Black Ops 4 maps.
File diggers did their thing with the recently-released update for Treyarch's shooter, and uncovered a night version of Firing Range and a sunset version of Seaside. The sunset version of Seaside has a rain weather effect, which is cool. Here's how they look:
There's even gameplay available of these maps, which you can see in the video below from YouTube channel Nero's Cinema.
In a post-Fortnite world, in a world where loot boxes hit the headlines on mainstream publications, the battle pass is king. But it's not good for every game. In fact, for some video games, it's downright bad.
One game it looks bad for is Call of Duty Black Ops 4, which is currently struggling to keep players on-side because of its battle pass-esque microtransactions.
This week, Black Ops 4 received a Fall Firearms special order, and it quickly set off the Call of Duty community. This special order, which is time-limited and costs 2000 COD Points (around 15), includes 13 tiers of progression, with each tier unlocking a new virtual item.
Nuketown arrives on the PlayStation 4 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 next week.
That's Tuesday, 13th November 2018 specifically. As per Activision's marketing deal with Sony for Call of Duty, Nuketown arrives on PC and Xbox One later.
There's a Russian flavour to Nuketown on Black Ops 4, which developer Treyarch has teased for a while now. The tweet below includes a short clip and contains the phrase "Welcome back" in Russian.
It looks like you can be so good at Call of Duty, the game thinks you're cheating.
That's what a developer at Battlefield maker DICE reckons after he was banned from playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Florian Le Bihan, who works on core gameplay design on Battlefield 5 at DICE in Stockholm, Sweden, took to Twitter to bemoan an unexpected ban he received from playing Treyarch's game.
Treyarch has issued an update to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's tiered progression system to make it faster.
The time-limited Black Market, which is live now on PlayStation 4, challenges players to progress through 200 tiers, unlocking a raft of cosmetic items such as sprays, emotes, outfits and characters as they go. Progression is based on time played, as opposed to performance, so you simply unlock items as you play.
But progression since launch has been painfully slow. Players investigated how long it would take to hit level 200 in the 52 days the Operation: First Strike event runs, and worked out it would require an average of around 23 games played a day. That's about eight hours a day - until the contraband event ends.
