Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is probably one of the more unique entries in Activision's blockbuster franchise. It famously shipped without a single player campaign, instead opting to place the focus on multiplayer, zombies, and Blackout mode. That was the series' first attempt at the Battle Royale formula and is still arguably its best yet. Anyway, a campaign was actually in development for the sub-series' fourth entry, but it was scrapped in early 2018. That still hasn't stopped some early footage displaying what Treyarch was aiming for from leaking onto the internet.
Viewable below after Eurogamer reported on the Reddit post, we have two minutes worth of footage which takes place on the multiplayer map titled Seaside. This is quite clearly an early build so don't expect anything too impressive.
The campaign mission tasks you with finding the Aquilis CEO as you take down terrorists and avoid shooting civilians. The Reddit poster claims they found the footage online in an "incredibly obscure" place, whatever that means. Nevertheless, this is still a welcome peek behind the curtain at what could have been.
