Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is getting a massive update today which has just arrived on PS4 and PS4 Pro consoles.
While the new patch is now available to download on one platform, COD players on others may have to wait longer.
Xbox One and PC players may receive the 1.09 patch later today but will reportedly have to wait until December 18 for the rest of the Operation Absolute Zero DLC.
From what has been shared so far by Treyarch, Blackout Mode will be one of the main focal points for the new Black Ops 4 update.
The new Call of Duty update weighs in at 15.3GB on PS4 consoles and will be fully detailed by a Treyarch live stream being hosted later today.
Here’s what the development team has said so far about the new patch:
“Players will immediately notice the map’s new visual updates as soon as they jump out of the helicopter, from seasonal changes in foliage and softer winter lighting to new smoke trails to better indicate where everyone is dropping.
“Subtle environmental improvements are also coming to Nuketown Island, Hydro Dam, and Factory – see if you can spot what’s new on Monday, and watch for our patch notes with more details on these updates next week.”
Official patch notes for the Call of Duty update will be shared in the coming hours and will include all the latest up to date information for fans.
We will update this story with the latest news on the new Call of Duty Black Ops 4 update when it arrives.
Here’s more on the new Blackout changes coming today, as well as details on the launch of Operation Absolute Zero:
“On December 10, we’re setting the stage with several hotly-anticipated updates to the core Blackout experience for all platforms, including our new Armor repair system, audio improvements, SDM and Spitfire weapon balancing, and seasonal changes across the entire map.
“Players will immediately notice the map’s new visual updates as soon as they jump out of the helicopter, from seasonal changes in foliage and softer winter lighting, to new smoke trails to better indicate where everyone is dropping. Subtle environmental improvements are also coming to Nuketown Island, Hydro Dam, and Factory – see if you can spot what’s new on Monday, and watch for our patch notes with more details on these updates next week.
“Then, we turn things up a notch on December 11 when Hijacked debuts on PS4 as our newest Blackout destination, located on the peaceful waters of the map’s northwest quadrant. Inspired by the classic Treyarch Multiplayer map, our favorite luxury yacht becomes everyone’s new favorite hot drop in Blackout.
“Once you make it to dry land, hop into the new ARAV armored vehicle with a friend and light up your foes with its turret-mounted machine gun. Players can also drop in as Zero after unlocking her, or as one of the four zombie-killing gladiators from IX after finding and completing the brand-new set of Blackout Zombies Character Missions.”
Operation Absolute Zero: Multiplayer
Operation Absolute Zero is set to include new DLC content for the game first on the PlayStation platform, followed by others.
“It introduces the first new post-launch Specialist: Zero, a versatile and deadly hacker available in both Multiplayer and Blackout.
“In Multiplayer, Zero can disrupt and distract her enemies using the powerful hacking tools at her disposal, bringing new counteractive measures to the table in Black Ops 4. Players can unlock Zero by completing Tier 1 in the newly revamped Black Market and immediately start testing out her wonderful new toys.”
