Treyarch Details Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Post-Launch Plans; New Modes for Blackout, Nuketown, New Specialists and More
Treyarch managed to thoroughly consider most of the feedback they received during both the normal Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta, as well as the Blackout beta. Earlier this week, the studio addressed several concerns players had regarding team-killing, camera adjustments when downed, a clearer armour damage indicator and other topics.
Since we are closing in on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s release date, Treyarch revealed their post-launch plans for the title, describing it as “the most active calendar of events” in the studio’s history. First of all, the well-known and classic Nuketown map is making a comeback, featured in all Black Ops entries so far. In addition to that, players should expect more specialists to get added to the game, with the first addition coming later in December. Similar to Fortnite’s limited-time modes, Treyarch has plans to continuously update their battle royale mode, Blackout, with new expansions, map updates and even new modes. Here are all the details you need.
Our goal is to deliver a steady stream of [Black Ops 4] content to the entire community – the most active calendar of events in our history, period. Following launch, we’ll continue to add a variety of free content for the entire community across Multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout. While the specific details of each release will come as the dates are announced, here are a few examples:
- Nuketown: An all-new take on this fan-favorite map will be landing in November for all players to enjoy.
- Specialists: We have a number of new Specialists already in development, with our first brand new character coming in December.
- Blackout: There are so many places that we want to go with this game mode. The map and gameplay rules that you’ll experience at launch are just the beginning. We will continue to support the community with map updates, expansions and new Blackout modes for everyone.
- Events: In addition to the content above, we have many seasonal and time-limited events that will deliver new game modes and content to all players.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is set to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12. For now, check out this guide to get you started once Blackout drops.
