Treyarch have rolled out a quick update on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, bringing a new Zombies playlist, Blackout and multiplayer PC fixes and the official announcement of the Black Market going live on all platforms on 26 October 2018.

The company replaced the Aether playlist with unique public playlists for Classified and Blood of the Dead. What this basically means is that you can play whatever map you wish, whenever you feel like it. 

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Black Market is going live for all platforms, after completing a week on PlayStation 4, as per Activision's exclusivity deal with Sony. Operation: First Strike will bring a bunch of cosmetics for multiplayer and Blackout, such as gestures, outfits, signature weapons and more. 

As usual, there have been some updates specific to PCs and Blackout will no longer allow the exploit that allowed the numpad to activate the wingsuit more often. There have been some issues with rocks letting through bullets, which Treyarch and Beenox claim have been fixed. 

As for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's regular multiplayer on PCs, there's been a single fix that occurred when players changed decals. We hope that the Black Market's arrival won't make things worse, especially since some earlier crashes were related to camo, weapon and attachment combos.

If you're up for some freebie hunting, you should know that Treyarch will be holding their Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Halloween stream on Saturday, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One hordes alike. According to their announcement in the patch notes, there will be plenty of "spooky seasonal cosmetics to earn".

As you probably noticed yourself, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 updates are coming in hard and fast, with the last update tweaking scorestreaks, gear and some quirky animations.

The company also announced the next major Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 update for next week, which should bring "the first major multiplayer weapons tuning pass based on all of the data collected since launch, improvements to the audio system in Blackout" and a bunch more.
