Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Latest Update Fixes Zombies Easter Eggs and Featured Playlists; Full Patch Notes Detailed
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has been a major success since its release of last week. The game has gone on to break records of all sorts, and it seems to be a great entry in the Call of Duty franchise.
Treyarch is devoted to making the game the best it could be, so lo and behold a new patch has been implemented. The patch fixes a slew of things including zombie easter eggs, weapon tuning, and much more.
Thankfully they published the full patch notes, which you can take a look at down below:
As promised yesterday, we’ve just rolled out a Zombies-specific update this morning across all platforms that includes several stability improvements across IX, Voyage of Despair, Blood of the Dead, and Classified in Black Ops 4. This should alleviate some of the issues we’ve seen recently during some (otherwise epic) Easter Egg hunts. Thanks again for bearing with us – even though we’re still in the early days after launch, the Zombies team is dedicated to constantly improving the game experience for the entire community.
We’ve made the following update to the game today (Global):
Significant stability fixes across all Zombies maps, including fixes to the Easter Egg quests.
In addition to the topics listed in our previous updates over the past week, we’re currently tracking the following recent topics:
We’ve seen comments and requests around general weapon tuning since launch. We take weapon tuning very seriously and put any proposed tweaks through rigorous internal testing before we consider a change to the game. With that said, we’ve captured a massive amount of input and stats since October 12th, and we’re currently making a tuning pass for a major update coming soon. Stay tuned.
Vehicle Behavior in Blackout
If you frequent this subreddit, you’ve probably seen clips of some unexpected vehicle behavior in Blackout. We’re investigating the issue.
Death Stashes on Consoles
Some players have reported freezing issues when looting a Death Stash in Blackout on consoles. We’re currently working on a fix for this in the near future.
We’ve continued to track issues related to connection timeouts that lead to a loss in stats/recently unlocked camos. We’re planning a fix for this later this week.
They also went on to mention that the new update also added a new featured playlist in. These will change frequently, and will sometimes even include bonus modifiers, like 2XP, for limited times. Read the full notes about that down below:
We would also like to take this opportunity to talk about Featured Playlists in Black Ops 4 since we’re doing things a little differently with playlists in this game. You’ll notice we’ve created “Featured” playlist tiles for Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies on the home screen. These will change frequently, and will sometimes even include bonus modifiers, like 2XP, for limited times. Black Ops 4 is designed as a more event-driven game, and the Featured playlists will serve to rally the community around different ways to play each week.
We also have a “Featured” category in Multiplayer, which includes a showcase of rotating MP playlists. This is where we’ll occasionally feature mashups of modes (like our “Moshpit” playlists), traditional modes with alterations to the rules, fun time-limited modes, and new modes that have never been released before. While we’ll always continue to support the standard playlists in Core and Hardcore, the Featured playlists are there to keep things extra-interesting for all Black Ops 4 players while also maintaining a strong matchmaking pool that isn’t spread thin across too many playlists.
That’s it for today! Let’s see what you can find out there today, Easter Egg hunters.
