Black Ops 4 Operation Apocalypse Z

Black Ops 4 Operation Apocalypse Z

Not content with being stuck in Zombies mode, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's undead menace has broken lose and spread to the rest of the game, kicking off a zombie apocalypse. Operation Apocalypse Z is out today on PS4 and will appear on PC at a later date.

Other featured content coming this week includes Alpha Omega in Zombies, Sticks and Stones in multiplayer, threes Black Ops Pass MP maps, new Blackout map updates and Nightfall descending on Alcatraz.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is published by Activision and developed by Treyarch, with additional development support from Raven Software and PC development with Beenox.

According to the official roadmap, Operation Apocalypse Z Rising will feature the new specialist, Reaper, going live during its first week.

As reported on by GamesRadar, there is a new version of Nuketown coming to, uh town.

To begin with, the highly acclaimed Alcatraz map has been brought back to all platforms in Blackout. It seems that even the zombies will use weapons and that there will be teleporters similar to those seen in other zombie modes.

The Reaper's weapon is called the Scythe - a machine gun with an extremely high fire rate and damage potential, which also causes a suppression effect like the Titan LMG's Operator Mod.

Although Kofi didn't wrestle he did appear at the event, and Xavier Woods and Big E defeated The B-Team in the opening match. WWE Champion Kofi Kingston didn't work the WWE live event on Monday in Glenn Falls, NY at the Cool Insuring Arena.

Treyarch say that today's new update will be going live at (roughly) 6pm in the UK, or 10am PST, in the United States.

While this update includes many new additions, let's take a look at the highlights of what's new.

Battle Royale mode Blackout will see a spooky fog fall upon the map, while the creepy Alcatraz locale gets a new night-time variant. "This gameplay space, which is 400% larger than "Nuketown Zombies", features both familiar nostalgia and new elements".

The Haunting Fog - An apocalyptic transformation to the main map.

Also released is Alpha Omega, the penultimate story mission in the Aether storyline.

Quads Fog - A limited-time Quads playlist where cloudy skies hang over an ominous fog. Players will fight off hordes of new Zombie enemies, solve challenges, and discover new Easter eggs.

So yeah, lots of stuff to dive into here, most of which is probably undead and you shouldn't try and swim through.
