Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 April 23 Update – Hot Pursuit, Deathmatch Domination, and more



Treyarch has launched the latest game settings update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

As mentioned yesterday by Treyarch, this Game Settings Update brings Hot Pursuit LTM back to Blackout in Black Ops 4 – a highly requested LTM. Treyarch says they will continue to rotate LTMs out in Blackout often. MP has Infected added back as the Featured mode.

Below you can find all of the details regarding what’s currently live in-game and what’s coming in the near future…

Our Next Operation is Just Around the Corner

One week from today, Black Ops 4’s fourth Operation kicks into gear first on PS4, delivering new ways to play with a full season of fresh content coming to Multiplayer, Zombies, and Blackout.
