The latest Humble Monthly Bundle is available for purchase, and as usual the selection is headlined by a notable triple-A release. This month’s early unlock is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Edition, a slightly pared-back version of the game that includes all standard multiplayer modes and battle royale – just no zombies.
Based on early teasers, we knew Alcatraz was coming to Blackout in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. But news that it’ll be a fully featured new map for the battle royale – not just a small addition to the existing map – comes as much more of a surprise. On top of that, another free trial for Blackout is coming, and this one will last the whole month. Before you ask, there’s no indication that any of this is an April Fools gag.
Activision is bringing Call of Duty: Mobile to the west. In a trailer released last night, the publisher announced the arrival of the game in a trailer which you can check out further down this article, showing off plenty of game modes and hinting at even more.

There’s about to be a new location to drop in on in Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode – the dusty abandoned streets of Ghost Town. A trailer for the new Operation Grand Heist showcases the new location, as well as plenty of other new content for the base game and Black Ops Pass holders. Notably, there some more buried teases on what to expect next, including more Blackout locations and what might just be that day/night cycle we heard about ages ago.
Five time (five time) WCW champion Booker T is suing Activision for ripping off one of his wrestling personas in Call of Duty. Booker claims that Black Ops 4 Specialist Prophet copies his G.I.

In perhaps the weirdest sentence I’ll write all day, KFC Gaming has taken aim at Faze Clan after the esports organisation’s players failed to qualify for the Call of Duty World League. Not content with poking fun at the organisation, the fried chicken restaurant’s confusing gaming division called out the players individually, before suggesting that they might find more success in a very different type of competition.
