Call of Duty Black Ops 4 update 1.09 is a big one for both the game and the fans of all platforms.
PC players were left waiting for the new patch longer than their counterparts on PS4 and Xbox One.
But now the big Black Ops 4 1.09 update has arrived on Battle Net, providing new changes to the game.
Treyarch has yet to release the full PC patch notes but has confirmed they hope to do this later today.
“Title Update 1.09 on PC is now available! Look for detailed patch notes from @Treyarch later today,” a message from the COD development team reads.
“This week’s #Blackout armour redesign includes a new Repair Armor keybind for PC players!
“Assign this new action to your preference under the Game Mode Specific section. New players, or those who choose to reset keybinds, will have Repair Armor bound to Q.”
It should be noted that while there will be plenty of new changes included in update 1.09, PC players do not yet have access to all the new Operation Absolute Zero content.
This is available on PS4 for the remainder of this week, with PC and Xbox One gaining access on December 18.
Here’s is what Treyarch has said so far about the new update: “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.”
