Black Ops 4 will soon supports custom games in Blackout. The feature will go live next week – Treyarch isn’t specific about whether this is something PlayStation gets first dibs on – and will allow you to get into small, private matches with friends so you can explore at your own pace and get some practice time in. The options are starting small, but more are set to come over time depending on how players make use of the feature.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 got a free game update yesterday. One of the biggest new features is the daily tier skip for multiplayer and Blackout, which gives you a free Black Market tier every day for some pretty modest achievements.

Common gaming wisdom might tell you that Call of Duty’s best years are in the past, and the series’ biggest sales numbers are not going to be repeated. A newly released bit of NPD data suggests otherwise, though. With one exception, a Call of Duty title has been the top selling game in the US every year since 2009.
