New modes coming to Blackout during Operation Spectre Rising, including 50v50 Ground War
During the April 29 Studio Livestream, Treyarch has detailed the new modes coming to Blackout in Operation Spectre Rising.
The first of the two new modes is called Bounty Hunter and is releasing on April 30 for PS4, while Ground War will make its way to Blackout sometime during this operation. Ground War will bring a 50v50 mode to Blackout in Black Ops 4 when it debuts later in the Operation.
Treyarch details these new modes in their blog post as follows while providing some updates on returning Blackout modes:
A new Blackout game mode, Bounty Hunter,will be live at the start of the Operation. Drop in and find the beacons of light that indicate Spectre Stashes, which contain the Shadow Blade and other valuable items like Level 3 Armor, Smoke, stealth-related Perks, and Trauma Kits. Equipping the Shadow Blade will transform the player into Spectre, giving them unique skills including increased movement speed, the ability to see digital footprints of nearby enemies, and full third-person camera perspective. Spectre can carry both the Shadow Blade and a normal weapon. When the normal weapon is equipped, Spectre will return to first-person view.
With each new Collapse in Bounty Hunter, players with the most kills will be marked as Bounty targets that only Spectre can see. Eliminate the target or survive the Bounty attack to be rewarded with a Supply Drop on your position. Unique to Bounty Hunter, players can also perform Humiliations on downed enemies. These are fatal finishing moves to end an opponent in dramatic fashion. Spectre has a distinct Humiliation that uses the Shadow Blade to deal an epic final blow. Channel your inner assassin and work together to be the last team standing.
More Blackout game modes are on the way including Ground War, which takes the familiar large-scale, team-vs.-team Multiplayer format to a new level of chaos and turns battle royale into all-out war. Plus, Down But Not Out returns with revamped rules and mechanics like escalating loadouts and the squad wipe notification feature, alongside other fan-favorite limited time modes like Hot Pursuit!
