Original story, December 4: Operation White Noise is available tomorrow, December 5, (if you have a year 2 season pass), with three new operators and a new ranked map, as well as the start of Season 4.
It's worth noting that we don't know exactly when the update will go live, but past form lets us take a pretty good guess - big patches always land at the same time, and new seasons have all previously dropped on a Tuesday (i.e. tomorrow). With all that in mind, here's exactly when maintenance for the new season will begin:
- 08:00 PT
- 10:00 CT
- 11:00 ET
- 16:00 GMT
- 17:00 CET
- 01:00 (Wednesday, September 6) ACT
Those are the times for PC maintenance, so the update itself won't go live at exactly that point in time. In fact, it's difficult to say exactly when you'll be able to play the new content. What we do know is that the PS4 maintenance is happening two hours before, and the Xbox One maintenance one hour before the PC maintenance. Hopefully, that means you'll have your update within an hour at the most, although there have been times when maintenance has only taken a few minutes.
