Treyarch’s big Operation Grand Heist update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has arrived on PS4. The update introduces a slew of new content to the online shooter, including a new Specialist, maps, and weapons, with even more still to come over the next few days.
Launching alongside the update today, February 19, is a new Specialist for multiplayer and Blackout modes: Outrider. Treyarch has also added a new multiplayer mode called One in the Chamber, while those with the Black Ops Pass have access to two new multiplayer maps, Casino and Lockup.
Black Ops Pass holders also get an exclusive character for Blackout: the Zombie gorilla Cosmic Silverback. As Treyarch recently teased, the Blackout map has also been expanded with a new locale called Ghost Town. The aboveground area is designed after the Black Ops II map Standoff, while the caverns below ground are inspired by the Zombies map Buried.
Speaking of Zombies, the mode has also received some new content in the form of the Death-Con Five Gauntlet for the Classified map. Treyarch has also implemented a new Perk, Ethereal Razor, which “substantially increases a player’s melee damage with area of effect and life re-gen for each hit.”
Rounding out the additions are new Black Market weapons, camos, outfits, accessories, and gestures. Treyarch has even more content on the way every day this week. Beginning February 20, the developer teases that “a familiar face makes an appearance to welcome in the new Operation,” and the following day will kick off the first League Play event. Finally, on February 22, Blackout will get the new Hot Pursuit mode, which introduces three new vehicles: the SUV, PBR, and Muscle Car.
Like Operation Grand Heist, Hot Pursuit will go live first on PS4 and expand to Xbox One and PC the following week. You can read more details about the update on Treyarch’s blog.
