Activision’s newest title just released a major update. Update 1.09 has rolled out on PS4, Xbox One and PC. It will feature new content, game modes and much more.  You will need at least 15-20 GB of storage available for 1.09, so make sure you clear up some space if need be.

Key Features of update 1.09

  • Two new Special Operations will be added to your library as well as a Classic Special Ops mission with star ratings.
  • Familiar game mode “Gun Game” will be included as well as “Realism Moshpit” an interesting mode that removes your HUD (heads up display) and reduces health to realistic standards (one shot headshots).
  • Another exciting change is the numerous patches that will be featured in this newest update. With the release of 1.10 fans will notice the many changes that are being made to the games current state, these changes include bug fixes, stability across all platforms and overall performance enhancement.
  • Finally, for players who enjoy playing with a keyboard on PS4, there will be support for additional layouts.

Down below you will find the notes for the 1.09 update.
