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.

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.

The next limited time mode coming to Black Ops 4 Blackout is called Ambush, and as the name implies it’s all about sudden death.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout has made survival a little easier in its latest game mode, adding a respawn mechanic to the battle royale. Down But Not Out, which began earlier this week,will allow players who otherwise would have been eliminated to rise again, as long as the rest of their squad is still alive and kicking.
Earlier today, Black Ops 4 players noticed something unusual. Yellow exclamation markers were appearing on matchmaking screens which visually indicated which players had not bought the game’s season pass. Some folks took that to mean the developers were trying to pressure players into buying the new content. One Reddit thread – with nearly 100k upvotes – went so far as to call the icons “shaming markers.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 took on battle royale in a big way with its Blackout mode, and the results have been pretty successful.
