Black Ops 4 update 1.21 Patch Notes revealed for Call of Duty PS4 and Xbox One players (Pic: Treyarch)

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 update 1.21 has just been released for PS4 and Xbox One.

As suspected Treyarch released the update earlier this evening and the patch is 4.7GB on PS4 and 9GB on Xbox One.

The new update brings Operation Apocalypse Z content to Xbox One and PC after releasing last week on PS4.

But the PS4 update is pretty substantial, presumably, there's quite a few bug fixes and changes to iron out any issues from last week's release.

As per usual, developers at Treyarch released the 1.21 patch notes on Reddit for the community to look over.

Writing to the game's fans, Treyarch said: “Our latest Operation is now live on all platforms, with todays update delivering new content and features to Multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies on Xbox One and PC”.

Light Breaks In and Reaper Deploys in Blackout

Daylight has begun to trickle in through the fog in Blackouts main map, bringing higher visibility and improved lighting to core Quads, Duos, and Solo matches.
