Starting today, October 19th, the Black Market will become available in Black Ops 4 (on PS4 first for 7 days then PC and Xbox One). It includes new customization options, characters, special events, seasonal events, and more. You are able to purchase some items directly or work towards them by simply playing the game. Some details:
- All-New Blackout Characters– New playable characters will be released with each new Operation.
- Signature Weapons
- Specialists Outfits – Cool customization content built around themes for all Specialists in-game; you can even mix and match the look of your character within outfit sets.
- Tags / Gestures – Whether you’re taunting opponents or celebrating a victory, Tags and Gestures are a perfect way to express yourself in the game.

We really like this approach as it gives all players a chance to earn the items but for people who are willing to simply spend the money, it gives them access to buy exactly what they want. In our opinion, that’s how it should be. Though we do feel that the PS4 seven day exclusivity should not be factored on the Black Market nor seasonal events. That feels a little wrong on Sony’s part.
