Treyarch released another Black Ops 4 patch on June 18 that brought fan-favorite Alcatraz to Xbox One and PC along with a variety of other changes to game modes.

With the new Black Ops 4 patch we’ve received some changes to both Ground War and Zombies. 

The Ground War changes come as a result of player feedback and it gives the game mode a wider starting zone and a shorter period of time before the first zone collapse. A bug that allowed players to fall through the ground has also been fixed.

The Zombies changes fix a health regen bug on Round 21 in “Hellcatraz” that was reported to Treyarch by the community.


Released on PS4 earlier, Alcatraz has finally returned to Blackout on both Xbox One and PC. This close-quarters map also comes with the new Submarine and Shipwreck destinations located on opposite sides of the island. 

Updates to the main Cellhouse building have also been made so be sure to give those a look the next time you drop into Alcatraz.

A new Black Ops 4 update has arrived.

While we are more than halfway through the month of June, the new Twitch Prime loot drop is now available beginning today. This drop comes with a Sour Cherry weapon camo, Firebreakin’ gesture, Target Locked sticker, 100 Nebulium Plasma, and five reserve cases.


This bundle is available for free for all Twitch Prime members so be sure to claim it before it disappears.

Also announced with the new update is the fact June 21 will mark the start of the next double XP weekend so players will be able to soak up a lot of extra experience for a few days.
