Treyarch has released a new update for the latest addition to the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops 4. The Call of Duty Black Ops 4 November 27th game settings update introduces two previously leaked maps to the game – Seaside Sunset and Firing Range Night. Furthermore, a host of other changes have also been implemented in BO4 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Game Settings Update – November 27th
Throughout the COD community recently, many fans have been hoping to see a Nuketown Hardcore playlist added in-game. It appears Treyarch listened and have decided to include a Hardcore Nuketown playlist within the Black Ops 4 November 27th game settings update.
Chaos Hardpoint is also now available in Black Ops 4. This particular version features many changes – the score limit has been increased to 1000, team score increases with each teammate inside of the active Hardpoint, and more.
Safeguard makes its Black Ops 4 debut on PS4! PC and Xbox One will follow suit one week later.
“Deliver the robot into enemy territory to secure the win.”
Seaside Sunset and Firing Range Night
Prior to this update, dataminers discovered two new variations of the maps ‘Seaside’ and ‘Firing Range’ in the game’s PC files. Whilst beforehand there was no indication for when exactly these would be released, it appears they have been implemented quicker than expected on all platforms. In addition, these variations are also available for free, not included in the Black Ops Pass. Therefore, the total map count has now been increased to 17, instead of 15.
