Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout_02

Treyarch Studios has released another hefty update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, this time adding two “new” 5v5 multiplayer maps. Actually, they’re variants of existing maps – Seaside Sunset is Seaside but at dusk, while Firing Range Night is, well, the Firing Range at nighttime. Some bug fixes and such have also been included.

The two map variants are available across all platforms, as are some new playlists. These are Hardcore Nuketown, Chaos Hardpoint, and Mercenary Objective Moshpit. Even better is the fact that the Bowie Knife has been added to equipment stashes and Zombies drops in Blackout. It’s silent and kills in one hit.

Another new playlist that makes its debut (but on PS4) is Safeguard. This new mode sees two teams escorting their robot into the opposing side while fighting off incursions from the enemy team. Blackout players on PS4 can also play the Zombies Origins character missions, which unlock Dempsey, Nikolai, Takeo, and Richtofen. Check out the full patch notes below for more information.
