Activision has announced that a ‘Black Ops Pass’ will be available for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 which will feature more frequent DLC opportunities over time.

On Monday, June 11th, Activision announced that a ‘Black Ops Pass’ will be offered for the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 which will redefine the way downloadable content is introduced into the franchise.

While previous Call of Duty titles have typically had multiple ‘content drops’ over the course of the year, the new Black Ops Pass will offer a ‘more frequent cadence’ to keep the game fresh by implementing new maps and content regularly.

The ‘Black Ops Pass’ will include a collection of new content such as multiplayer maps, Zombie Experiences, and ‘Blackout’ Characters, with more information able to be found below.

Black Ops Pass

The Black Ops Pass is included in the Digital Deluxe Edition, the Digital Deluxe Enhanced Edition and the Pro Edition, and represents a new approach to post-launch content for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, including a robust live season for the community. Instead of having four separate content drops, Black Ops 4 fans will experience a more frequent cadence to keep things fresh and deliver new maps and content more regularly throughout the year.

There will be more details soon, but for now here’s a list of what comes in the Black OpsPass, for players who are ready to fully immerse themselves into all three modes of Black Ops 4.

  • “Classified,” a Bonus Zombies Experience, available at Launch
  • 4 Additional All-New Zombies Experiences
  • 12 Multiplayer Maps
  • 4 Exclusive Blackout Characters

The new Zombies experience, Classified, is in addition to the three new Zombies experiences coming at launch: IX, Voyage of Despair and Blood of the Dead. That means fans who pick up the Black Ops Pass will have four Zombies adventures on launch day, and then four more to sink their teeth into post-launch. Now that’s a lot of Zombies.

More to come.

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
