Treyarch has announced an update for Blackout’s special Halloween event, as well as introduced multiple fixes to the game, itself.


Blackout’s free, Halloween-themed special event is now available for PS4 users. The mode is accessible in the Black Market, and features ‘seasonal’ gear which may be used across all game modes.

In the spirit of the season, Treyarch has also made a Halloween Calling event for Zombies as part of the mode. Halloween Calling includes a slew of new challenges in Zombies, through which players can earn exclusive rewards.

The event will run for the same duration across all platforms.
