Black Ops 4 Season Pass Controversy

A FAQ from Activision Support has details on the special editions and the season pass for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the upcoming installment in the shooter series (thanks VideoGamer). What they are calling the Black Ops pass will include a dozen multiplayer maps and four exclusive characters for their Blackout battle royale mode. This has sparked some controversy, however, as word that this content will not be sold outside of the pass. Question nine in their 10-question FAQ asks, "Will I be able to buy parts of Black Ops Pass content individually, like DLC Map Packs from previous Call of Duty games?" The answer reads, "No. The contents included in Black Ops Pass may only be purchased as a bundle." A separate answer explains the changes: "We’re redefining the digital content season for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 by delivering more content with more frequency. In addition to the release of Multiplayer maps, Zombies experiences, and Blackout content, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 players can also expect in-game content and themed events, creating a robust content season." Here's word on the content that comes with the controversial pass:

Black Ops Pass includes:

  • "Classified," a bonus Zombies experience, available at launch
  • 4 Additional all-new Zombies experiences
  • 12 Multiplayer maps
  • 4 exclusive Blackout characters
