Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Patch Notes: Latest PS4 and Xbox One 1.20 update news

UPDATE ONE: Full patch notes for today’s Call of Duty Black Ops 4 update have now been released by Treyarch and can be found at the bottom of this article, including content and changes dropping today for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

ORIGINAL: Big news is set to be shared today following the launch of the new Call of Duty Black Ops 4 update.

Bringing new content to PS4, which will be released on Xbox One and PC a week later, today’s update 1.20 is now available to download. All platforms should expect a big download today, with PS4 players reporting a patch weighing in at 12.765GB.

The good news is that while it may take some time to add to your console hard drive, it’s coming with plenty of changes. Many of these are reserved for the PS4 today, but other tweaks will prove popular across all platforms.

“Alcatraz will return to #Blackout on all platforms on July 9th, along with a dark new twist coming to Alcatraz in Operation Apocalypse Z,” a message from Treyarch explains.

“Splitscreen co-op will also be restored in all Blackout modes with our July 9th update alongside new Blackout map updates.”

As mentioned above, Operation Apocalypse arrives on PS4 today, followed by other platforms.

Early patch notes have been shared by Treyarch in a post online, detailing the new content coming to the game. Being a Zombies-themed expansion, the new Alpha Omega adventures will be some of the main highlights.

“Following the events of “Classified” and “Blood of the Dead”, the Primis and Ultimis crews travel to a secret Broken Arrow facility at Nuketown,” the message from Treyarch adds.

“This gameplay space, which is 400% larger than “Nuketown Zombies”, features both familiar nostalgia and new elements. In “Alpha Omega”, players will face new enemies, including Jolting Jacks and Nova 6 Bombers that are deadlier evolutions of the Nova 6 Crawlers from “Kino Der Toten”.

“Plus, you’ll fight against a new special round foe, the Lightning Hounds. As the Aether story heads toward an epic conclusion, “Alpha Omega” works to unravel the mysteries of the beginning and the end.

“Gear up for this epic new battle with the latest Perk, Blood Wolf Bite. When activated, players are given a friendly wolf companion named Luna that aids in surviving the undead. Once in the map, Luna fights alongside the player, killing zombies and even dealing damage to larger or mini-boss type enemies.

“If Blood Wolf Bite is placed in the Modifier slot, a Luna kill has the chance of spawning a mini-Power-up, such as a small amount of ammo, points, or power.

“Classic Elixirs from Black Ops III will also arrive at the start of the Operation. Phoenix Up is for players who want to lend a helping hand, reviving all teammates and allowing them to keep their Perks. Head Drama makes every shot really count. When equipped, any bullet that hits a zombie damages its head.

“The Argus shotgun and Reaver C86 semi-auto crossbow will be added to the Mystery Box at the start of Operation Apocalypse Z. Discover how both deal damage to the undead and Pack-A-Punch them in game for the Ancient Harbinger (Argus) and Minos’ Zeal (Reaver C86).

“Also, the new Zombies experience delivers a new Gauntlet later in this Operation. Players will be able to tackle thirty new challenges while battling the undead in the upcoming “Alpha Omega” Gauntlet, “Duck and Cover”.”
