In recent days, developer of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Treyarch, have been teasing small bits of information about the upcoming game ahead of its ‘community reveal’ event on May 17th.

The teases and hints themselves have been small, but there is enough in them for fans to begin heavy speculation about what kind of game is on the horizon, set to release on October 12th 2018.

As well as Treyarch themselves, there has been a number of leaks from individuals who claim to be in the know, and have even seen the game or know people who have.

The leak claimed some very surprising things about the new game, such as saying that campaign had been entirely scrapped as it would not be ready in time, and that there would be a battle royale mode.

What both of Treyarch’s teasers tell us however, is even more significant that boots on the ground or the class system.

In previous years, the Call of Duty promotional cycle would always, without fail, tease the campaign mode, well in advance of the multiplayer or zombies modes.

We would have expected to see campaign showcased at the upcoming community reveal – but judging from these teaser tweets, it looks more likely that multiplayer will be on show.

Pick 10 system

Treyarch’s first little teaser was this cryptic tweet, which many believe all but confirms the return of the ‘pick 10’ system of create-a-class, which Treyarch first created with Black Ops 2.

Pick 10 is the preferred class system with most fans, with CoD: WWII’s ‘division’ system not working out as well as hoped.

Return of Perks and Wildcards

Then Treyarch’s second teaser was a much less cryptic tweet, confirming that perks will be making their return to the game. They only show four, but they are fairly easy to identify for most Call of Duty fans.

These perks look like (L-R): Dexterity, Sleight of Hand/Fast Hands, Scavenger, Lightweight/Marathon

Most significantly, both the top left and bottom left perks in this image heavily suggest that this upcoming game will be boots on the ground. There would be no need for ladders if you had advanced movement, and the boot symbol is self-explanatory.

And this certainly gives credence to the leaks which suggested campaign had been scrapped. So, if the leaks were correct about that, we must also wonder if they were correct about battle royale, Overwatch style hero systems and everything else.

The game’s slogan is of course “forget what you know” – so maybe this really will be a big change of direction for the series. If so, fans will be even more glad to see familiar features such as pick 10, the perk system and boots on the ground gameplay.

How to find Warzone Leatherface house easter egg on Verdansk map

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

Leatherface’s house location in Warzone

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
