In preparation for Operation Absolute Zero, Treyarch has released title update 1.09 for Black Ops 4 which contains a large number of changes across all the modes within the game (including some ones we’ve been not so patiently waiting for). From what we’ve seen, the update weighs in around 26gb.
First up, Multiplayer: We’ve added Nuketown Custom Games, improved melee and Purifier reliability, reduced Titan effectiveness, updated transition stages for Diamond and Dark Matter camos, improved stability, and made several other quality-of-life updates to the game. Read on below for the full list.
We’ve also made fundamental design changes to the map, audio, and Armor in Blackout with this update, including adjustments to the SDM and Spitfire to better balance out the weapon classes, environmental changes to key destinations around the map, and more. See the Blackout section of our patch notes below and jump into the game to find out what’s new across the entire Blackout map, just in time for the holidays.
Our 1.09 update marks the launch of the first of this week’s three new Zombies features with the addition of Daily Tier Skip credit for Zombies! With this update, Zombies players can now earn a bonus Black Market Tier skip by completing 15 rounds in one match of Classic Zombies. We’ve also implemented new high-round fixes in Zombies as we gear up for more new content coming this week, as well as fixes for specific crashes that could occur across each of our four current maps. This is our initial wave of fixes targeted at high-round play, and should result in a smoother Zombies experience for all players.
Finally, a follow-up for our Blackout players in lower-population regions, including parts of South America, South Africa, and the Middle East: we’re currently directing players in these regions into rotating Featured playlists to optimize matchmaking and reduce time in lobbies. We’ve heard your feedback, and we’re continually evaluating performance closely to provide the best possible play experience in all regions.
The patch notes are extensive and you can find all of them on Reddit here : BLOPS4 Update 1.09
We play quite a bit of Blackout and Multiplayer and two of our most requested features have been added in this update which pleases us greatly (the audio in Blackout and adding ADS sensitivity settings). We’re looking forward to jumping back in tonight to test it all out!
