Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Shamrock and Awe Event and New Map Arriving Tomorrow

A brand new update is set to go live for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 tomorrow and it's set to bring to the game a slew of new content.

Say what you will about Treyarch, but no one can deny that they are adding a ton of content to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and this week seems like no different. Today, the developers announced that the next update for the first-person shooter is arriving tomorrow and they even gave fans a look at some of the features that’ll be added.

Coming up first we have Shamrock and Awe, a new St. Patrick’s Day mini-event that’ll more than likely add new weapons, gear, and more. The event has been a part of the last few Call of Duty games in some capacity, so it’s nice to see the event come back again in Black Ops 4. 

On top of that, the multiplayer portion of the game is getting a new map weather variation: Contraband Hurricane, which I’m guessing will be a stormy version of the beachside map. In addition, MP will also be getting a new game mode, Stockpile, which is a reimagined version of Fracture from Black Ops 3. 

Of course, other major features will be making their way into the game tomorrow, including Hardcore mode for Blackout (something that I’ve been begging for and looking forward to) as well as a new map update for the battle royale mode, although I imagine it’ll be relatively small considering we just got a major update a few weeks ago. No patch notes have been made available yet, however, Treyarch said they’ll go live when the patch does tomorrow.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
