Treyarch released a February 28 update for Black Ops 4 which has finally brought major features that fans have been clamoring for to PC and Xbox One.
The game’s new patch comes at the heels of the Playstation 4 update last week, which will now invite for the entire Call of Duty player base to indulge in new additions.
The latest update will give the rest of the Call of Duty community access to League Play and the World League Hub which at long last brings competitive ranked Multiplayer to the live servers.
In today's #BlackOps4 update:— Treyarch Studios (@Treyarch) February 28, 2019
• League Play now live on all platforms!
• New weapon support in #Zombies on Xbox One/PC
• Fix for hitching in Create-a-Class between matches
• Hot Pursuit tomorrow in Blackout on Xbox One/PC

In order to climb, players will have to accumulate Ladder Points by winning games. Finish every event as high as possible in your Division Ladder to push through the 20 ranks before Diamond.
As for Blackout, players will have to wait until March 1 to hop into the new Hot Pursuit limited-time mode, but will have plenty of content to hold them over until then.
The update also brought the new Ghost Town location to Blackout. For Xbox One and PC players who don’t know, the new point of interest also holds some secrets that can provide extra gunfire if found.
With every Black Ops 4 player now able to wet their feet in League Play, the servers should be filled with chaos over the weekend with players attempting to climb the ladder.
Full patch notes for the latest February 28 update for Black Ops 4 on PC and Xbox One are below -
The World League Hub is now available on all platforms with today’s update on Xbox One and PC, bringing competitive ranked Multiplayer to Black Ops 4 with our all-new League Play event structure! Time to show us what you’re made of.
The goal is simple: finish as high as possible in your Division Ladder by the end of each event to advance in rank. Win to earn Ladder Points. Lose, and you lose Ladder Points. There are 20 ranks to advance through on the road to Diamond, so bring your A-game. And if you haven’t already, get all the intel on League Play Divisions, Ladder Points, rank rewards, and more at our World League Rank System blog.
Starting with today’s new event, League Play Events will now end at 12AM (midnight) Pacific time. We’re also investigating the implementation of punishments for quitters and intentional teamkillers in League Play matches, as well as stability fixes to ensure fewer crashes and fuller teams going into each match. We’re devoted to making the competitive experience even better with future updates throughout the season, so watch this space and keep climbing those Ladders.
In case you missed it, we launched our new Treyarch Developer Update video yesterday featuring the studio’s own David Vonderhaar, Tony Flame, and Jason Blundell to discuss the design philosophy behind Black Ops 4’s newest content and what we’re working on for the future.
Keep an eye out for the next installment in March, where we’ll be talking more about what’s coming to all three modes in the next big phase of Operation Grand Heist. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
