Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has received an update overnight that made several changes and added a few major crash fixes, especially on PC.
If you’ve been keeping up with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 news recently, you may remember Treyarch promising to release a big update for the game later this week.
Though this update has yet to materialise, we did get a new patch. The October 16 update’s main changes are mianly geared towards the game’s online experience, including Blackout. The battle royale mode started out supporting a maximum of 88 players in duos, and 100 in quads.
Now, duos have been boosted to 100 players, but quads are dropping to 88. Treyarch continues to look into stability and network problems in quads, which is likely why the player count was decreased there. It’s not clear if this setup will remain in the future, but the developer said it’s monitoring feedback and data to ensure the best experience.
As a result, you’ll note that the featured playlist has been changed to 100-player duos. On the subject of playlists, TDM playlists now support six-player parties, which they did not before. Of course, if your six-player party attempts to play a five-player mode, you will be notified.
There’s also a decent amount of crash fixes, with PC getting most of them. Check below for the full list of patch notes.
Stability improvements (PC)
Beyond these fixes, Treyarch is currently investigating a few other issues such as sounds in multiplayer not behaving as players expect, Zombies Easter eggs causing the game to crash, teammate player names disappearing in multiplayer, and a very specific rash with the Hellion Salvo weapon on PC.
