'Call of Duty: Black Ops 4' Update Adds New Black Market Content

Another update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has gone live and though it's significantly smaller than yesterday's, it does come bearing Black Market gifts.

Treyarch took to Reddit once more to outline a few new tweaks made to the game overall while also showing what's new for PlayStation 4 users. According to the studio's most recent post, "Today’s update brings new Black Market content for PS4 players with the introduction of Special Orders, plus a new bonus of 1,000 CP and 300 Nebulium Plasma for Black Ops Pass owners on all platforms, a host of stability improvements on PC, and more. Read on below for the full list of updates."

They added, "COD Points are also now live on PS4, with availability on other platforms to follow next week. COD Points can be used to acquire additional Nebulium Plasma in Zombies, advance through cosmetic Black Market Tiers, and access new Special Orders in the Black Market. Note: COD Points availability will be rolling out globally throughout the day on PS4."

The newest Black Market additions comes with the arrival of Special Orders. Treyarch describes this as a way "players can stack each tier with multiple items to unlock at once, allowing everyone to maximize item unlocks with two items per Tier at all times and up to three items per Tier when Special Events are live (like the Halloween event live right now!). Players can choose when to acquire and start progressing through Special Orders, and only one can be active at a time. Though Special Orders will rotate on a regular basis, they will stay in your inventory once acquired until they’re completed, and you can switch between active Special Orders at any time. Once a Special Order is activated, you’ll see the new content drop in starting on the Black Market Tier you’re currently on."
