Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta Day 7 update faces the Blightfather

Making a cameo from an upcoming Zombies campaign, Blackout players are now tasked with surviving the scourge of the Blightfather.


Treyarch has something interesting lined up for Day 7 of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout beta. There's a new game event that has popped up around the Graveyard. If zombies have proven tough to take down, they're nothing compared to the new menace that's haunting the Blackout map.

The Blightfather is making a cameo from Black Ops 4's upcoming "IX" Zombies campaign. He can be found just south of the Asylum and is among the most dangerous creatures roaming the playing area. But if anyone can brave this encounter and take it down, they'll be rewarded with copious loot. Take on the Blightfather event, if you dare.

Treyarch has also made a few more stability fixes, while also issuing some controller fixes. The full list beta updates can be found on r/BlackOps. The Blackout beta is set to run until Monday morning. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will release on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on October 12.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
