The stage is set for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Community Reveal Event with Treyarch releasing a teaser of the venue.

Set to release on October 12th, 2018, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has generated a substantial amount of hype across the community ever since it was officially announced in March.

However, even though a myriad of potential leaks have been made public knowledge in recent months, Treyarch and Activision have remained somewhat quiet in regards to what will be included in the title.

On Thursday, May 17th, a Black Ops 4 ‘Community Reveal Event’ in Los Angeles, California is set to provide fans with more knowledge and background on the game, yet what exactly will be shown remains unknown.

With just hours to go until the Community Reveal, Treyarch released and incredible first-look inside the venue, which features a stage, massive screens, seating, and more.

Stay tuned to Dexerto for more information on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 throughout the entire Community Reveal Event, which kicks off at 10 AM PDT (1 PM EST, 6 PM GMT) on Thursday, May 17th.

CoD Mobile devs explain why Overkill perk hasn’t been added yet

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have shed a little bit more light on why the Overkill perk hasn’t been added just yet despite being teased for a few seasons now.

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, fans of the game are treated to a whole batch of new content, typically including a new weapon, new map, new skins, and a new character. 

Back in CoD Mobile Season 8, the Overkill perk was supposed to be added alongside Quick Fix and Shrapnel. Though the other two made it in, Overkill was left locked until being removed not too long ago. 

The removal of the perk, which has been a staple in other CoD titles, has had fans questioning whether the devs are getting rid of it entirely, and now, they’ve shed a little more light on what’s happened.

Overkill was listed a perk for CoD Mobile but was never available.

Following their October 29 Community Update, where they revealed some additional content for Halloween, as well as going over bug fixes for the current season, the devs were quizzed on plenty of different topics – including Overkill. 

Players asked if it was still in the works and if they had any further info to add, given that players have been waiting quite a while to see it. “No, not yet. Still the same situation as before where we aren’t quite comfortable enough with weapon balance after the introduction of Gunsmith,”  the devs replied. 

Adding on to that, they continued: “We need weapon balance to be damn near perfect before we drop Overkill into the mix since that can have a huge effect on weapon balance as well.”

Given that the power of balancing is in the hands of the devs, there’s no telling as to when the mobile game will be balanced enough for Overkill to be introduced. 

Fans who have been waiting for the perk will be hoping that this day comes sooner rather than later, but, we’ll just have to wait and see.
