Operation Apocalypse Z begins tomorrow in Black Ops 4
Newest update brings a zombie theme to all aspects of the game
Activision has announced Operation Apocalypse Z, the latest season of content for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
The update brings with it a new character. Brandishing the Scythe heavy machine gun (which applies a suppression effect on the enemies it targets), Reaper returns to Multiplayer. This experimental war robot also arrives with the Radar Shroud; a versatile deployable jammer that blocks enemies from using minimap information within its radius.
Black Ops Pass owners now have three additional Multiplayer maps. The first map is “Der Schatten” (“The Shadow”), a village sitting in the shadow of Griffin Castle (from “Der Eisendrache”), where a giant robot has spilled out element 115 with interesting results. The second map Remnant takes players to the Louisiana swamps to visit The Museum of Unnatural History, which has recently purchased a unique relic. Lastly, return to the streets of Havana, an original Black Ops map.
In the Blackout map, the skies have departed in a prelude to the zombie apocalypse. Life is being leached from the landscape, forcing those still living to take refuge; expect floating embers, decaying and dead flora and fauna, and more. Blackout’s environmental changes and associated Zombies secrets will be spread across two map variants: The Haunting Fog limited time Quads playlist and core Blackout modes (Solos, Duos, Quads). The Haunting Fog features a dark fog, whereas the core Blackout maps will feature Zombies-inspiring theming but without the intense fog.
Further, over on the Alcatraz: Nightfall variant of the Blackout Alcatraz map, a new game mode has brought Hellhounds and the Warden to the island where the undead are more prevalent than ever. Drop into the new mode Alcatraz Portals Horde to battle to survive enemies and the horde.
If you’re a Black Ops Pass owner, you'll also get the penultimate chapter of the Aether storyline called Alpha Omega. For the first time, you’ll be able to jump into the fray as both the Primis and Ultimis characters, as timelines converge. Battle against new Zombies enemies with secrets behind their existence, solve challenges, and discover Easter Eggs.
Operation Apocalypse Z releases first on PlayStation 4 on July 9.
