BO4 Update 1.20 Patch Notes (Black Ops 4)

Black Ops 4 Update 1.20

During a livestream yesterday, Treyarch unveiled details on the upcoming operation in Call of Duty Black Ops 4. So, let’s take a look at the preliminary BO4 update 1.20 patch notes.

The update has introduced a host of changes, the biggest of which have occurred on PS4 with the addition of Operation Apocalypse Z. The size of the update can vary depending on your platform and region. It’s 12.7GB on PS4.

While PS4 players acquire post-launch content 7 days prior to other platforms, Xbox One and PC may have to wait until next week for some of the following changes and additions to the game.

Black Ops 4 Update 1.20

To begin with, the highly acclaimed Alcatraz map has been brought back to all platforms in Blackout. Additionally, if you are playing on PlayStation 4, you will receive the Nightfall theme of the map and the LTM.

Alcatraz has also received some changes. Zombies can spawn and navigate anywhere, instead of before where it was just specific places. An array of new Zombies have also arrived, here’s some of the new types.

  • Brutus
  • Dogs (Hellhounds)
  • & more

New Black Ops Pass is also on the horizon. This includes the ‘Alpha Omega’ Zombies map, alongside three all-new Multiplayer maps. One of which is a Havana remake from the original Black Ops, whereas one is set in a museum of unnatural history and the other one, called “The Shadow”, is set in Germany.
