As Treyarch continues to improve on Black Ops 4 in the week following the game’s release on October 12, they’ve given fans an idea of what they can expect from upcoming updates.

While Black Ops 4 has been met with widespread praise from across the board, Treyarch has made sure to keep an eye on all feedback to determine which areas need improvements the most.

The latest update on upcoming changes to the game should be very pleasing for both international players and Zombies fans alike.

While the international community for Black Ops 4 may not be as large as in the United States, they have been no less dedicated as their stateside counterparts.

One of the biggest issues such players have run into has dealt with low server populations that have made it so that they can’t play the game. In the days since the release of Black Ops 4, multiple players have taken to Reddit to express their concerns over the issues.

It looks as though those concerns have reached the ears of those at Treyarch, as they directly addressed these issues at the end of the v1.03 patch notes on Friday afternoon. 

To our players experiencing trouble starting full Blackout and MP matches in certain areas at specific times of the day (parts of South America, South Africa, Australia, Asia, and the Middle East): we hear you. We are investigating multiple options to give everyone the best possible experience by connecting players to the closest well-populated server with without negatively impacting other players on that server. Please stay tuned as we roll out updates to help alleviate this issue.

In addition to the matchmaking updates for international players, those who have been dedicating their time to Zombies will soon have a few more things to chase after.

Gold, Diamond, and Dark Matter camos will be coming to Zombies in a future update. We hear you loud and clear.

Pretty soon, weapons in the Zombies game mode will have the chance to see what all the fuss is about with the changing colors of the Diamond and Dark Matter camos.

There’s no word on when any of these updates will be available in the game, but with the speed in which Treyarch have been pushing out these updates, fans shouldn’t have too long to wait.

You can read the full list of upcoming changes below:

Black Ops Cold War leaks reveal League Play mode returning

Reputable Call of Duty leaker ‘TheMW2Ghost’ has claimed that an in-game challenge in Black Ops Cold War shows that League Play will make a long-awaited return when the full game drops in November. 

Despite it’s immense popularity in Black Ops 2, League Play has not yet returned in a Call of Duty game. While we’ve seen many Ranked modes – Black Ops 3’s Arena or Black Ops 4’s World League Play – the fan-favorite competitive mode has not featured in some games, including 2019’s Modern Warfare.

However, recent leaks from TheMW2Ghost suggest that an in-game challenge, similar to the one that was completed on October 17 to earn an extra day of the open Beta, will make way to reveal a League Play mode in the full game.

Many consider Black Ops II League Play to be the best Ranked mode in Call of Duty history.

The leaker claimed that an in-game challenge, found in the files of Black Ops Cold War, is heavily indicative of a League Play mode featuring, either at launch or as post-launch content.

“There’s a Challenge in Black Ops Cold War which is for League Play,” they tweeted. “WTF, some weird/cool challenges for Zombies too.” 

While this is not confirmed – or even unlocked – at the time of writing, the very reference to League Play in the game’s files is very good news for fans of the competitive mode.

It’s worth encouraging a degree of caution though. Past Call of Duty games have had Ranked modes confirmed as coming post-launch, only for the mode to never materialise. A number of CoD games, such as 2019’s Modern Warfare, have settled for a Call of Duty League playlist, rather than a fully fledged Ranked mode.

Treyarch on a Black Ops Cold War Ranked mode

Back in early October, David Vonderhaar was asked about the possibility of a Ranked Play mode. He responded: “Have you seen a Black Ops game without a competitive agenda?”

What League Play would mean for SBMM is also up in the air. Many have criticized the seemingly high levels of skill-based matchmaking in the Beta, but believe a Ranked playlist could mean that SBMM is reduced in public matches. We’ll have to wait and see on all fronts.
