Call of Duty developers Treyarch have revealed that a major update is coming to their newly released Black Ops 4 title, along with the game’s first Double XP promo event.

In a tweet put out on October 18, it was announced that a “substantial” update to Black Ops 4 will go live on October 19, and will affect all three modes of the game – Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies.

“Tomorrow, we’re releasing a substantial update to Black Ops 4 with a host of improvements, fixes, and additions across all modes, including new stability for Zombies.”

The full patch notes for the game update are not expected to be released until it goes live, and the exact launch time for the patch has not yet been announced by Treyarch.

However, in a Reddit post on October 17, Treyarch did detail some aspects of the game’s three modes they have been monitoring ahead of this update, which could give a major clue for what players can expect.

In addition to the major update, October 19 will also see the start of the first ever Double XP weekend in Black Ops 4. The 2XP will be active in Multiplayer and a 2XP Nebelium Plasma event will also be taking place in Zombies.

The Double XP event is expected to be live until Monday, October 23, although the exact start and end times have also not yet been announced.

Treyarch noted that more details would be announced soon, so stay tuned to our Twitter page @DexertoINTEL as well as our Call of Duty page.
