OpTic Gaming content creator ‘Hitch’ and online tournament organizers UMG are hosting a massive Call of Duty: Ghosts throwback tournament, featuring some of the game’s iconic players and teams.

The 8 team invitational tournament will take place on September 22nd and will include longtime CoD veterans, such Mirx, MBoze, Ricky, Killa, and others.

Hitch had previously teased the tournament with a cryptic tweet hinting at a future announcement, following up with a video that revealed the tournament and its details.

The video description, uploaded on Hitch’s YouTube channel, states the purpose of the tournament is to celebrate Ghosts’ competitive scene by bringing together former rosters to relive the game’s glory days.

On September 22nd, UMG and myself are bringing the community an 8 team, Ghosts invitational for $5,000. The entire purpose of this tournament is to try our best to reunited past rosters from that year one last time on this particular game.

This news follows the recent ‘Rallied vs MBoZe’ CoD: Ghosts Showmatch,’ which was another Ghosts tournament organized by Hitch.

Like the Showmatch, this new tournament will also be an invitational, but will feature a lot more players and teams and will have a massive $5,000 prize.

With more information to be released, fans can look forward to further player team announcements in the near future.

Warzone Zombies ‘black screen’ glitch makes it impossible to see

The Zombie Royale mode in Warzone was barely a few hours old before frustrating glitches and bugs started popping up — and one of them is just giving players a black screen, making it impossible to see or play properly.

Whenever a new update or patch arrives in Warzone, or any game for that matter, there are likely to be some issues, whether it be balancing, servers or something similar.

That said, it’s usually something you can gloss over and not worry too much about until the next patch — but this doesn’t quite come under that category.

While the map for the new Zombie Royale mode is set at night time, some players are getting a little more darkness than they bargained for.

Zombie Royale sees players fighting off — and even becoming — zombies, in Modern Warfare’s Halloween event.

It wasn’t long before players realized that occasionally they would drop into the mode and be plunged into total darkness, with what people are referring to as the “black screen” glitch.

As shown in the video below — and from accounts by other players — the screen goes completely black except for the HUD, which doesn’t provide massive help when traversing Verdansk and engaging in gunfights.

It essentially gives the players affected no chance of winning their fights, barring some sort of miracle or some incredible callouts from teammates, making it almost impossible to win games.

As you can see in the above video, there are a couple of ways to get rid of the black screen, but they’re not exactly helpful.

One method is to look through the Spotter Scope, which gives you your vision back and can at least be used to see where you are, and you also lose the black screen bug when you become a zombie, which kind of nullifies the point of the game mode in the first place.

It’s unclear what exactly is causing this bug, but expect Infinity Ward to be looking for a fix imminently — with any luck, this problem shouldn’t affect players for too much longer.
