Treyarch have announced a new promotional event in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and we’re here to make sure you’re caught up on everything there is to know. 

On July 15, Treyarch announced that there will be a new promo event called ‘Double-Double,’ which will give players the chance to earn boosted XP in all four major game modes – Multiplayer, Zombies, League Play, and Blackout battle royale.

Double XP and Double Weapon XP will be enabled for all four modes, while Blackout will additionally feature Double Merits for players to enjoy.

The event, which will be available on all platforms, will kick off on Friday, July 19 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST and run through the weekend, coming to an end on Monday, July 22 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST.


This Double-Double promo weekend comes as part of a busy week in Black Ops 4, as Treyarch will be releasing a lot of new content, primarily for the Xbox One and PC.

The two platforms will finally get Operation Apocalypse Z on July 16, a week after it was released for PlayStation 4, as well as the latest Zombies map Alpha Omega. 

The July 16 update will also re-enable the Reaper as a playable character in Blackout, several days after it was removed due to audio issues. 

TreyarchXbox One and PC players will be getting Operation Apocalypse Z this week.

What’s new in Operation Apocalypse Z?

Xbox One and PC players will soon finally be able to enjoy all of the new content included in Operation Apocalypse Z, the fifth Operation content stream in Black Ops 4.

It features the return of the fan-favorite Sticks and Stones Multiplayer mode, three new Black Ops Pass-exclusive maps, updates to the Blackout map, the addition of Reaper as a Specialist in Multiplayer, and more.

All that, along with a Double-Double XP promo event, should make this weekend a busy one in Black Ops 4.

Black Ops Cold War PlayStation-exclusive Zombies mode revealed

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Onslaught players will be dropped into multiplayer maps and forced to fight the undead.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
