Activision have officially announced that this years annual Call Of Duty release will be Black Ops 4, and will be releasing earlier than the franchise usually does, with a release date of October 12th 2018. There is also another date for your diary, with May 17th 2018 booked in for the Community Reveal.
Usually, the Call Of Duty series releases around the start of November, but moving to October 12th clearly is designed to stay away from the 26th October release of Red Dead Redemption 2. Getting in two weeks earlier is clearly thought to be more beneficial than following Rockstar’s behemoth.
It has been thought that this years CoD, developed by Treyarch would see a return to the Black Ops series, especially after NBA superstar James Harden was seen wearing a baseball cap which had a very similar logo to the Black Ops 3 logo, but with four ‘I’s instead of three. This design is now quite obviously the Black Ops 4 logo, fuelling speculation that Activision have brought forward the announcement in response to that leak.
The internet is also having lots of fun with Activision’s choice not to go with the standard roman numeral for four ‘IV’, instead going with ‘IIII’.
So the Black Market Vendor is back and like everyone else he is celebrating Hallows’ Eve with the addition of some lovely gifts for you to go Trick or Treating with. This time around we see additions in the form of 2 New Guns, 2 Legendary Melee Weapons and 9 New Specialist Themes and more. So check out the video below as there is no ‘arm’ in it, or is there?
The new content is available now until the end of the month, so start collecting those cryptokeys and go and pay Blackjack your friendly Black Market Dealer a visit.
The wait is finally over and the last map pack DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is now available to download. Titled Salvation, the DLC follows the same trend as the previous three other map packs by bringing 4 new multiplayer maps and the dramatic climax of the Zombies Origins saga.
Revelations is the final chapter of the Zombies experience and Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai have travelled through space and time to finally discover the identity of the mysterious Doctor Monty in The House. As the heroes face-off against an ancient evil, they must hold the zombie horde back in the ultimate battle between human and undead.
Also included is four new action-packed multiplayer maps, Citadel, Micro, Outlaw and Rupture.
Citadel – Once home to a powerful medieval army, this ancient castle now sits broken and abandoned. Tight corners force close-quarters engagements, while the moat and drawbridge allows for unique player movement opportunities in this mid-sized map.
Micro – What’s better than a BBQ on a hot summer day? A miniaturised war zone that takes place on a well-stocked family picnic table. Navigate this bite-size battlefield for a larger-than-life experience.
Outlaw – Gear up for a showdown in Outlaw; a western-style re-imagining of the fan favourite map Standoff from Call of Duty®: Black Ops II. This rough-and-tough medium-sized map brings classic engagements, flanking routes and strategic positions for long and medium ranged combat.
Rupture – The Call of Duty®: World at War classic Outskirts is re-imagined as a high-tech facility, designed by a futuristic society desperate to repair the Earth’s atmosphere. Take control of one of the facility’s mechs to unleash a barrage of heavy machine gun and rocket destruction.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 – Salvation is available now to download for free for Season Pass holders on the Xbox One and PC. Otherwise as like the other DLC’s it can be purchased seperately, see online stores for details.

Named Descent the dlc like previous content updates, will introduce 4 new maps into the game and also extend the already awesome Zombie experience.

Details of the new maps are below;
Empire: Treyarch adapts its Black Ops III movement system to the Call of Duty: Black Ops II fan favourite map Raid. The re-imagining of this classic, medium-sized map features an authentic Roman villa that has been “recreated by a modern-day eccentric billionaire,” where a classic map structure mixes with the new gameplay mechanics of Black Ops III.
Cryogen : Located far off the coast in the Dead Sea, an isolated compound holds some of the world’s most dangerous criminals in frozen isolation. Sentry towers keep watch over the small map’s circular design as frenetic combat is funneled around the prison’s cryogenic tubes, where opportunities for wall running attacks abound.
Berserk: Ancient sentinels from a lost civilisation guard the entrance to Berserk, a Viking village frozen in time. Players will fight through blizzards and control the centre bridge as they navigate this medium-sized map’s wooden buildings, deadly rocky outcroppings and tight chokepoints.
Rumble: Gamers battle amongst larger-than-life mechanised warriors in Rumble, a stadium where giant robots battle to the roar of the crowd. This medium-sized map funnels high-speed combat to the central arena, where players battle their way through fallen mechs and pyrotechnics.
As always with any update the Zombie experience gets expanded and again you won’t be disappointed. Descent thrusts players in to an alternate universe of Nikolai’s motherland, the 1940s Soviet Union, in the next highly-anticipated chapter of the Origins Zombies saga, Gorod Krovi. Players face-off against a swarm of mechanised zombie infantry and dodge hell-fire from aerial dragon assaults, all in the middle of a raging battle within the remnants of Stalingrad. Gorod Krovi delivers the most exciting Zombies experience yet, filled with horrifying new enemies, exciting new gameplay mechanics and an epic set of Zombie annihilating weapons.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Descent will land on the PlayStation 4 on July 12th so expect it to be released for the Xbox One around the 9th August.
The wait is finally over and the second DLC for Black Ops 3, Eclipse has finally been released for Xbox.
Named Eclipse, the new dlc brings 4 new Multiplayer maps and the next chapter in the origins zombies experience, Zetsubou No Shima. The 4 new multiplayer maps are Verge, Rift, Spire, and Knockout.
Spire – takes Multiplayer combat to a futuristic sub-orbital airport terminal set high in the clouds. Multiple levels and open areas promote intense, mid-range combat around a clean, high-tech civilian environment. Watch your step, because one wrong move could send you plummeting back through the stratosphere.
Verge – In this re-imagination of the classic Call of Duty: World at War map, Banzai, Verge drops Multiplayer combat into the center of a distant post-apocalyptic future, where two warring factions are entrenched in constant battle over one of the few remaining water sources. Take control of the key bridge, fortresses, tunnel systems and waterfalls as you engage in high-speed action through this medium-sized map.
Rift – Head to the core of a harsh futuristic military complex, set high above an active caldera. Rift funnels and forces tight, intense engagements, where the only way through is forward. Utilize the unique core movement opportunities to outsmart and outplay enemies as you traverse the suspended rail system.
Knockout – Housed in a traditional Shaolin Temple with a retro twist, Knockout sets the stage for a bloody Kung Fu tournament … with guns. This mid-sized map showcases a sharp contrast between the mid-range engagements of the traditional exterior architecture and the tight close-quarters of an eclectic 1970’s styled interior.
In the latest chapter of the Zombies experience Zetsubou No Shima, the Origins characters find themselves stranded on a remote Pacific island. Continuing their mission to stop the Zombie apocalypse they face the horrors caused by the effects of Element 115 on human, plant and animal biology. The new chapter allows you to explore diverse environments from lush, tropical forest to the stark, overgrown laboratory facility. Will you be brave enough to use the zip lines or will you hide in the sewer systems to evade the Zombie horde.
As with every weekend since release this weekend sees another Double XP Weekend. The double weapon XP event starts today 20th May (usually 6pm GMT) and will run till the 23rd May.
