Videos of live mulitplayer gameplay of the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 title have begun surfacing on the internet.

The gameplay is from the worldwide Community Reveal Event for Black Ops 4 that was streamed live on May 17th from Los Angeles, CA.

Since the game was officially announced on March 8th, the vast Call of Duty community had been holding its breath in anticipation for the massive reveal event.

When it finally arrived, developer Treyarch did not hold back in its presentation as it unveiled details about the Mulitplayer, Zombies, and new ‘Blackout’ Battle Royale modes.

One of the guests that were invited to the exclusive event was popular Call of Duty YouTuber Brad ‘Drif0r’ Overbey, who got the chance to experience hands-on gameplay of the current version of Black Ops 4.

He has since released a video of him playing the Domination mulitplayer game mode on the new map called Contraband against some of the other guests in attendance. 

As the video of the gameplay rolls on, Drift0r commentates and reveals his first impressions and opinions about the game, and shares about the time he spent at the Community Reveal Event. 

Some of the key things that can be seen in the video are the ‘boots-on-the-ground’ movement mechanics, the brand new health regeneration system, the predictive recoil pattern system, and more. 

A full list of all of the new details about the CoD: Black Ops 4 mulitplayer can be seen here.

The entirety of Drift0r’s video can be seen below, or on his official YouTube channel.

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.
