Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Content Shift Allegedly Introduces Free Multiplayer DLC & Zombies DLC Season Pass
Recent reports suggest a change in how Call of Duty Black Ops 4 multiplayer and Zombies content is being delivered.
Website Gaming INTEL reports having heard that Treyarch will be ditching the traditional overall season pass model with new content and maps, for a model that allegedly introduces new free multiplayer maps every couple of months and a season pass for the game’s Zombies mode.
“This change in direction is supposedly being sought by Treyarch due to the steady fall off in players that Call of Duty titles sees after the release of a map pack”, Gaming INTEL writes. “While the player base sees a slight increase directly after the release of a new map pack, that drops back down again relatively quickly. To avoid this in the future a single or two monthly maps may be vastly superior.”
In an interview with website Polygon, Treyarch co-studio head Dan Bunting already hinted at a change in the way new content is being delivered.
“I can’t tell you at this point in time what that’s going to look like,” he told Polygon. “But I can tell you that we are pushing hard to release content to our fans in a way that’s going to make them happy and a way that we believe is the right thing to do in this stage in our game’s lifespan.”
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is slated for a release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12.
