Treyarch appears set to introduce a ‘slew’ of free content in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 following a Reddit post by a member of the development team.

Set to release on October 12th, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has gained a considerable amount of hype from members of the gaming community following its ‘Community Reveal’ in mid-May where in-game aspects were put on display for the first time.

Following the reveal, fans have been attempting to learn as much as they possibly can regarding the upcoming title, especially during the Electronic Entertainment Expo, also known as ‘E3,’ taking place in Los Angeles, California.

Treyarch, the developer of BO4, has maintained a steady flow of announcements and reveals in order to get fans excited for the game, including new information on post-release downloadable content.

With E3 in full swing, Treyarch took to the Black Ops 4 subreddit to address any concerns in regards to DLC, stating that BO4 will have ‘a slew of free, post-release content that will extend the Black Ops 4 experience with more new ways to play than we’ve ever done before.’

It is also mentioned how the Studio will take a similar route to the content added in Black Ops 3 even years following its launch, along with declaring that more has yet to be added to the 2015 title.

The full Reddit post can be viewed in its entirety below.

Checking in from E3: A Conversation… 

“Gang, The week of E3 is always exciting and crazy busy. Visitors to the show are playing the PC version of #BlackOps4 in the Activision booth, and it’s great to see the lines of eager folks wanting to get their hands-on time.

I want to make it clear that we are very much listening to your thoughts, comments, and ideas. We know the r/ community is passionate and vocal, and it’s a place where we sincerely want to have a two-way conversation.

We are absolutely committed to supporting the entire community with a slew of free, post-release content that will extend the Black Ops 4 experience with more new ways to play than we’ve ever done before. With Black Ops 3, we’re three years after release, and we continue to support it with new content and continuous updates – and we’re not even done yet. Our commitment to the game has maintained engagement…and Black Ops 4 has far more post-release updates planned for the entire community. In fact, it’s a game that was built for expansion. Launch day is just the beginning of a long journey.

Our commitment to a great Black Ops experience remains as firm and full as it has always been. On PC, alongside @BeenoxTeam there are many people pouring their incredible talents into each of the game’s offerings.

This dialog is just beginning, stick around and be a part of the conversation, whatever your particular thoughts. ‪October 12‬‬‬‬‬ is just the start of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 journey.

Black Ops Cold War weapons & perks changes revealed for Zombies

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

Activision
All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
