From today, PS4 users can update Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to test their new season, Operation Apocalypse Z. Leaving aside the next installment of the series (Modern Warfare), Activision and Treyarch update the game of 2018 with new features for multiplayer, zombies and Blackout.
First, the zombie mode receives a new campaign called Alpha Omega, which brings together classic characters like Danny Trejo in a reimagined version of the incombustible Nuketown map, also present in the other modes. It is a map about four times larger than the one we already knew, which allows us to access sinister subterranean installations never seen before where experimental weapons were developed. New weapons and advantages also appear.
The multiplayer opens the doors to three new maps based on zombie mode. The competitive multiplayer of Black Ops 4, meanwhile, reintroduces Reaper (a robotic specialist that we could handle in Black Ops 3) and opens the doors of three new maps based mainly on zombie experiences: the mountainous Der Schatten, the non-natural history museum Remnant and a curious zombified version of Havana. Some well-known game modes receive some changes, too.
Last but not least, the second Blackout mapping, the battle royale mode of BO4, you introduce a night version and dark called Alcatraz: Nightfall. This new iteration of the map is more focused on the zombies, not only because of the number of them but also because of the variety. We can find new types of enemies, like dogs and guardians.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will also take Operation Apocalypse Z to PC and Xbox One, although the release date for these versions is still a mystery.
