Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s new Operation Spectre Rising update is now live on PlayStation 4, with PC and Xbox One releases likely to follow next week if past updates are any indication.
A press release describes Operation Spectre Rising as an “assassin-themed update” that brings new maps, new modes, a new specialist, and lots more – including changes to the Blackout battle royale mode and new cosmetics. Some content in this update is free, while other parts will require the paid Black Ops Pass to access.
Included for free is the new Assassin specialist, who has smoke grenades and a “Shadow Blade” that allows for targeted melee kills. Blackout’s standard map has also been flooded by the Hydro Dam exploding, while the Zombies mode will get new weapons and challenges through the Operation Spectre Rising event. New Black Market cosmetics to unlock have also been added as part of the free update.
