A: No. The contents included in Black Ops Pass may only be purchased as a bundle.

That’s a huge change, since many folks currently opt to not get the Season Pass and buy certain DLC Packs only. For Black Ops 4, it appears you need the Black Ops Pass to get the content it will include post launch.

Activision has stated that the Black Ops Pass for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will include:

  • Classified – a new Zombies map, available at launch
  • 12 Multiplayer Maps to be released during the post launch content season
  • 4 Zombies Maps to be released during the post launch content season
  • 4 Exclusive Blackout characters

In addition, the FAQ also states – that as of right now – you cannot buy the Black Ops Pass separately; you have to purchase it with the Digital Deluxe, Digital Deluxe Enhanced, or the Pro Edition.

From Activision Support:

Q: Can I buy Black Ops Pass as a standalone product?

A: Currently, no. The only way to get Black Ops Pass is through the Digital Deluxe, Digital Deluxe Enhanced, and Pro Editions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Activision Support article also states that even post launch if you want the Black Ops Pass after purchasing the digital standard edition of the game, you will have to upgrade to the Digital Deluxe or Digital Deluxe Enhanced to get the Black Ops Pass.

If you already pre-ordered a digital standard edition of the game, there is options available on the PS Store, Xbox Store, and Battle net to upgrade to a higher edition by paying the difference in price. What if you bought the standard disc version of the game? No option exists to get the Black Ops Pass as of now, according to Activision Support.

From Activision Support:

Q: I’ve already pre-ordered the physical base version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. How can I upgrade to get the Black Ops Pass content?

A: If you pre-ordered the physical base version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, return to your retailer to upgrade your pre-order to an edition that includes Black Ops Pass.

While the entire industry is moving forward, like Activision’s main competitor Battlefield, which is giving away free maps, no loot boxes, no premium pass, Call of Duty seems to be living in the past.
