With Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s release day just a few days away, more info regarding the launch are making its way online. Remember when we reported that early copies won’t work due to the game needing a Black Ops 4 day one update? Activision just confirmed it but there’s also some good news!
According to the Activision support website, the Black Ops 4 file size will be at 50GB on both PS4 and Xbox One! If you find that size a bit too big, there’s a little bit of good news though, according to Activision, players can play Blackout in full with just 30 percent installed (about 16-20GB), though you’ll need to download and install a day one update completely in order to play Multiplayer, Zombies or Specialist Headquarters.
Furthermore, players should have 112GB of free disk space, though this isn’t the size of the download but rather, the amount of space required to complete the installation process. The final “installation footprint” will be around 55GB.
Note that these figures are if you install Black Ops 4 via a physical disc, and those who purchase the game digitally will need to download 55GB of harddrive space.
Courtesy of Treyarch’s Reddit post, for those who want to start their Black Ops 4 experience ASAP the moment servers are live, Black Ops 4 pre-load begins on consoles (PS4, Xbox One) at 12 a.m. on October 10! PC players can pre-load earlier at 9 p.m. PT on Tuesday, October 9.
Treyarch will launch a beta post-mortem video that gives an in-depth explanation to some of the changes made to Multiplayer, and Blackout as a result of beta feedback. Once it’s live, we’ll be sure to let our readers know. Lastly, same as in years past, launch streams will be kicked off by the studio. Again, once we know more, we’ll let our readers know.
For all things Black Ops 4, make sure to keep it locked here on MP1t and on our Black Ops 4 hub page!
