Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Update Introduces Barbarians Event

By Rebecca Smith,
The weekly updates continue to roll in for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. PlayStation 4 players get a new Special Event stream in the Black Market. As well as that, there's a refresh of the Featured Playlist section of the multiplayer modes, and a few fixes for Blackout and Zombies.

For the next four weeks, the Barbarians Event in the Black Market will add 25 new loot Tiers that sit below those in the Operation Absolute Zero stream, meaning twice as many rewards for the same amount of work. The new rewards include Outfits, Gestures, and Calling Cards. There's also a new Reactive Camo for the Hades LMG, and a new weapon in the form of the KAP 45 full-auto pistol.

In multiplayer, the Featured Playlist selection sees Chaos Domination in the top spot. That's accompanied by Team Tactical Moshpit, Mercenary Deathmatch Moshpit, Mercenary Hardcore Moshpit, and Mercenary Capture Moshpit. In terms of maps, Elevation and Madagascar are back in rotation in standard and Hardcore playlists, but only for players with the Black Ops Pass.

Finally, the free Blackout trial continues until tomorrow, January 24th, while the limited time Down But Not Out mode continues until January 30th. More generally, the team has also fixed the looting interface with improvements to Stashes.
