The announcement of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on March 8th confirmed the whirlwind of rumors that the fourth game in the popular Black Ops series would grace the storied CoD series as its next title.

The vast player-base has since waiting in anticipation of the Community Reveal Event that is set to take place on May 17th, with the game due to be released on October 12th.

With numerous rumors, leaks, and hints surfacing since the announcement, there seem to be countless questions about the game that need to be answered.

The Community Reveal Event will present developer Treyarch and publisher Activision the chance to reveal major details about the game for the first time.

That being said, here are five things that we would like to learn about during the Black Ops 4 Community Reveal Event on May 17th.

Single-Player Campaign

Every single Call of Duty title has featured a single-player campaign mode, many of them featuring memorable moments and legendary characters.

However, numerous sources have come out and said that CoD: Black Ops 4 will not feature such a mode.

It would be very interesting to find out if these reports are true, and if so, then what are the reasons behind such a major and sudden decision.

Multiplayer Game Modes

In their recent financial call, the executives from Activision mentioned that Treyarch have been hard at work developing innovative mutliplayer game modes that will bring novelties to CoD that haven’t been seen before.

Does that mean that brand new game modes and/or integral changes to existing and familiar modes are coming to Black Ops 4?

Also, could this be a reference to the introduction of a Battle Royale mode that has been heavily suggested by numerous reports and leaks?

In-game Movement Mechanics

In-game movement mechanics will most likely be a heavy point of focus and emphasis during the Reveal Event.

The three year spell of the ‘Jetpack Era’ of Call of Duty was brought to an end with the more traditional, boots-on-the-ground style of the current WWII title, which has received its share of mixed reviews.

What kind of movement system will Black Ops 4 feature, and how will it work towards fixing the movement mistakes of previous titles?

Perks System and Scorestreaks

The introduction of Divisions in CoD: WWII represented a major overhaul to the more classical perks systems that players have grown familiar with over the years.

Many in the community have expressed their desire for the return of the traditional ‘Pick-10’ perks system, something which Treyarch have cryptically hinted at in a previously tweeted image.

Furthermore, it will be worth seeing which, if any, of the scorestreaks are introduced during the Reveal event, as that has been another aspect of Call of Duty which players want to see revamped after recent titles.

Maps

Maybe the most important aspect of Call of Duty multiplayer, maps require delicate balance and intricate design that is hard to perfect but easy to mess up.

Traditionally, the Black Ops series has produced some of the most iconic maps in the CoD franchise.

Fans and players will hope that this trend will continue with the next title, and will look forward to seeing a glimpse of some of the maps on May 17th.

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.
