A new update is here for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 with tons of new Zombies content on the horizon. To prepare for upcoming DLC, the team has made a few key performance tweaks to this mode as well as the addition of Daily Tier Skip credit.
Treyarch recently took to Reddit to outline their current and future plans for Zombies, "Our 1.09 update marks the launch of the first of this week’s three new Zombies features with the addition of Daily Tier Skip credit for Zombies! With this update, Zombies players can now earn a bonus Black Market Tier skip by completing 15 rounds in one match of Classic Zombies. We’ve also implemented new high-round fixes in Zombies as we gear up for more new content coming this week, as well as fixes for specific crashes that could occur across each of our four current maps. This is our initial wave of fixes targeted at high-round play, and should result in a smoother Zombies experience for all players."
