Activision have made the latest update available to Black Ops 4 players on console with PlayStation 4 owners getting the Shamrock and Awe update as well.

The update includes a Hellcatraz Gauntlet option, a new Stockpile Multiplayer mode and, most importantly a Hardcore mode for Blackout that many players were hoping for.

  • Blackout: Spring Map Update + New Surprises

    • Spring has arrived in Blackout, bringing with it all-new lighting, a whole lot of greenery, and some… colorful hidden treasures. Follow the rainbow!

    • May the luck of the Irish be with you against the green-eyed zombies that await in Classic Chaos story maps! Rumor has it they’re hiding a special new Easter Egg to discover at the end of the rainbow…
