Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Season Pass Won’t Include Separate Content

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is changing up how the Call of Duty franchise releases DLC. The pack includes Jungle, Summit, Slums, and Firing Range, all of which are fan favorite maps from previous Black Ops titles.

Q: Can I buy Black Ops Pass as a standalone product? It is meant to be a new approach to the live community and post-launch content, including live seasons. BOP content should be downloaded from the in-game store only; do not purchase separately, or you will be charged again. Keep checking back with GameSpot for more on Black Ops 4 during E3.

What if you've already pre-ordered the base game in digital formats?

Call of Duty: Black Ops III was originally out in 2015 on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4. But with the PlayStation Store back up and running following some turbulence on Tuesday, we're here to remind you to grab your free copy while it's available. Well the FAQ is a little unclear.

Activision's shooter is only available to PS Plus members until July 11, and will give players a taster of what's to come when Black Ops 4 releases on October 12, 2018.

Unfortunately, it seems the rumours of Black Ops 4 ditching its season pass aren't true - the Black Ops Pass will bring a total of 12 new maps, plus five new zombie experiences and four exlusive characters for the new "Blackout" (battle royale) mode.

That puts a strain on players to buy higher editions of the game in order to get the content they want, especially if all they want is the standard edition along with the Black Ops pass. Instead of four separate content downloads, expect more robust and more frequent availability of maps and other content.
