New Black Ops 4 St

This new update is version 1.14 and is around 9.8GB in size on PlayStation 4 and 10GB on Xbox One.

Shock & Awe ends on PS4 March 26 and with other platforms to follow.

Just to be clear, Shamrock and Awe isn't the start of a new season, it's a just a small mini-event that's occurring during the larger Operation Grand Heist season that went live a few weeks back.

Black Ops 4's battle royale mode, Blackout, will be getting a fresh coat of paint to reflect the Spring season, so you can stop to admire the flowers whilst you're firing searing-hot lead into people's spleens. All smoke-whether from grenades or supply drops-is now colored green, as are the eyes of the zombies scattered throughout the map. Hidden caches of bronze pots have been hidden throughout Blackout's map as well. Finding and destroying them before your enemies do will reward you with "a wide variety of goodies".

Shamrock & Awe makes less severe changes in Zombies and Multiplayer. You will also find Homunculus Leprechauns running around the place. Defeating these zombies offers a mysterious reward.

The developer has remained fairly tight-lipped as to exactly what the new Shamrock and Awe event will bring to the game, but it's more than likely we'll see a new themed Contraband Stream in the Black Market shop. According to the studio, "This event brings free new seasonal content to Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies, including new game modes, limited-time thematic updates, and some unexpected surprises".

May the luck of the Irish be with you against the green-eyed zombies that await in Classic Chaos story maps!

The next major update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is live on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. As stated before, Shamrock & Awe is now only live on PS4, but the celebration is coming to other systems eventually.
