Treyarch has revealed update 1.10 that will be coming to Black Ops 4 on Ps4 and Xbox One later on today, but on PC at a later time all together (Within this week surely). The update will cost you roughly 10.9GB on the PS4 and 14.3GB on the Xbox One. Which, for the Xbox One, this update will introduce Operation Absolute Zero, a holiday event for Blackout, and a suprise for the zombies mode as well.
Here you can read the descriptions for the patches from Treyarch themselves or just view the patch notes entirely below :
Operation Absolute Zero has arrived on Xbox One and PC, granting all players free access to a huge new season of content:
Multiplayer: Zero, Black Ops 4’s new Specialist armed with the EMP Disruptor grenade and Ice Pick hacking tool.
Blackout: The debut of Hijacked, the new ARAV armored vehicle, and new IX Zombies Character Missions.
Black Market: 100 new Tiers of earnable loot, including new MP weapons, Blackout characters, Mastercrafts, Epic Outfits, Reactive Camos, Weapon Camos, and more.
And for Black Ops Pass holders on Xbox One and PC, we’ve got exciting new game content in all three modes:
Two new Multiplayer maps: Elevation and Madagascar.
Dead of the Night, an all-new Zombies experience starring Kiefer Sutherland, Helena Bonham Carter, Brian Blessed, and Charles Dance.
Black Ops 3 fan-favorite Reaper joins the cast of Blackout.
In today’s update to Multiplayer, we’ve implemented our first balancing pass on Zero, our new Specialist. As with all new features in Black Ops 4, we’ve been paying close attention to how Zero plays into the overall Multiplayer experience and have tuned some of her abilities accordingly. This includes an increase in the time it takes to earn her Ice Pick, varying increases to the time it takes her to hack Scorestreaks and Torque’s Barricade, preventing her hacks from freezing enemy healing cooldowns, and more. Take a look at the full patch notes below for the full list and let us know what you think.
We’ve also updated our MP Featured playlists, including the new Half-Off Heist on all platforms, Map Pack Moshpit for Black Ops Pass holders, and Mercenary Objective Moshpit for our lone wolves.
This week also brings new updates to Blackout, including…
Blackout Custom Games
In Blackout Custom Games, players can start a private match to explore the map at their own pace and practice Blackout with teams of friends. As we mentioned in last Friday’s update, Custom Games in Blackout will initially support a max player count of 12 – this is planned to grow over time as we evaluate player engagement, and we’re already planning expanded feature support over time.
Blackout Custom Games will support private matches in Solos, Duos, and Quads, as well as full character customization and Weapon Camo support (coming tomorrow!). Blackout Custom Games will be online-only to ensure all matches are always up-to-date.
Today’s new audio improvements in Blackout are focused on vehicles. We’ve lowered the volume of the Supply Drop plane to ensure players can hear more of the in-game action while the plane is overhead, and vehicle engines can now be heard more reliably when several other sounds are playing. The ARAV can also now be heard from farther away to help prevent surprise ambushes. Yes, we’ve seen the footage.
Specialist Unlocks and Outfit Rewards
Starting today on PS4, we’ve unlocked all Specialist characters in Blackout without requiring players to track down and complete their Character Missions, to ensure all players can play as the Specialist of their choice. For those players who’ve already put in the time to unlock their Specialists the old-fashioned way, we’ve got a special new Blackout-exclusive outfit reward for you called “The Numbers”, which we think you’re going to love. Players can also earn this outfit for each character by finding and completing these missions, which are now called Outfit Unlocks, after today’s update. And of course, more new characters are on their way to Blackout in the near future.
Contraband Stashes are also new today in Blackout on PS4. These are new types of Supply Stashes that you’ll find throughout the world, which can contain the new Secret Santa and Slay Bell melee weapons from the Black Market. Ho ho hooooly sh*t, they’re deadly!
Weapon Camos and Armor Tuning This Week
We’ve got more Blackout updates planned for this week, including Weapon Camo support and tuning to Armor durability and Armor Plates (currently in playtesting). Keep an eye on the subreddit for more details soon.
In Zombies, we’ve implemented a new round of gameplay improvements across all maps and a handful of stability fixes to help smooth out some of the remaining bumpiness players might have experienced. While we believe the vast majority of lingering Zombies stability issues have been eliminated with this update, we’re always investigating further ways to deliver an even smoother experience in future patches. If you’re still experiencing a crash in Zombies after this update, please let us know in the comments below with details on what was happening in-game at the time of the crash.
Finally, we’re happy to introduce an accessibility feature that we’ve been planning for a while: the new Auto Sprint option will allow players to double-click their controller’s left stick to automatically sprint in Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies. Players can enable this setting under Controls in the Options menu.
New in Call of Duty Black Ops 4 today (for Xbox and PC)
New Specialist – Players can reprogram the flow of combat with Zero, a new Specialist available in both Multiplayer and Blackout modes. Zero can disrupt and distract enemies with powerful hacking, altering the flow of battle.
New Black Market Gear – Operation Absolute Zero brings a brand-new Assault Rifle and fast-firing SMG to the Black Market which players can unlock by playing through Contraband Tiers. Plus, fans can collect new tactical outfits, personalisation accessories, new characters to use in Blackout, and special gift-wrapped melee weapons – all in time for the holidays.
New Festive Holiday Event – After Operation Absolute Zero arrives, the holidays will come to Blackout with special event tiers of seasonal items to unlock, thematic map decorations, and even throwable snowballs in Blackout that allow players to mount a festive assault on their enemies.
New Zombies Features – Daily Callings provide new gameplay challenges that reward Zombies players with bonus XP and Nebulium Plasma upon completion, the Black Ops Authenticity Stamp system gives players the ability to verify and share the results of their game online with a personalized code generated at the end of each match, along with Daily Tier Skips for Zombies, which allow players to earn Black Market Tier progression bonuses by playing Zombies each day.

Discussing more about the changes to Zero, players were told to expect doubled hacking times with Treyarch outlined on a Reddit post on the 16 December.
“We have a first-round balancing pass for Zero incoming Tuesday, including an update to double her hack time for all Scorestreaks and quadruple it for the Gunship, among other tweaks.
“Thanks for your continued feedback — as with all new features, we’re paying close attention to how Zero is playing relative to the rest of the Multiplayer experience and tuning accordingly. Stay tuned for more details in our next Reddit update, and in the meantime, keep the feedback coming!”
