Blackout looks like a pretty solid game mode.
Blackout really looks good. When is the beta open for the XBox?
I picked this up so I will be playing on PC. The only reason I did was because I am doing Origin Access Premiere for BFV, Anthem, and others so I had $ to spare
As you read this at the start of your week, it’s hard to believe that the worldwide release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is just days away. Three years of development, five months since our May reveal event, and now… just days away. It’s a blend of exciting and surreal… and we’re counting down the hours, too.
As we collectively prepare physically, mentally and spiritually for Friday, there are a few things that we wanted to put on your radar:
- Game Download Size: We’re happy to report that we have made a ton of improvements to optimize the Day 1 experience – the game download will be approximately 55 GB, and it will allow us to pack as much as we can into the game. A full list of details can be found here, and we’re happy to report that Blackout is fully playable once the download reaches about 30% completion (about 16-20 GB depending on platform). (A full download will be required to play Multiplayer, Zombies, and Specialist Headquarters).
- Game Pre-load Info: You’ve been asking when you can start pre-loading the game, and we’re here to help. Pre-loading on consoles will start at 12AM on October 10th in your local time , so if you’re up late tomorrow night, get ready to start that pre-load before bed. For PC users, pre-loading will begin worldwide at 9PM Pacific on Tuesday, October 9th .
- Special Update from the Studio: This week, we’ll broadcast a beta post-mortem video that provides developer insight into a number of the specific updates made to Multiplayer and Blackout as a direct result of your beta feedback. When we talk about what we’ve packed into that Day 1 update, this should help you get a better feel for what we’re talking about. This won’t be the average Treyarch livestream – think of it as a video version of a Reddit post. We’re going to get in the weeds. Stay tuned to our Twitter feed and we’ll let you know when it drops.
- Special Launch Streams: We are planning to participate in some special launch-timed livestreams – as tune-in details become public, we’ll be sure to amplify those.
Thanks again to everyone for your patience, feedback, and support, and stay tuned as we count down to launch on October 12th. We can’t wait to jump in and play with all of you.
LOL my stats could be for one Black Ops title.
Game is surprisingly solid
What are you playing? I’ve only been in Blackout. It’s a ton of fun. It’s a good cross between fortnite and pubg (except it works).
Blackout is great. Once they get the lag knocked out on Xbox it is going to be a blast. I am sure they have record numbers playing so they is to be expected.
Just been playing kill confirmed with the wife.
Blackout reminds me of H1Z1
Blackout is a frigging blast. They just need to fix whatever is going on with the lag (network or FPS, I’m not sure what it is).
Blackout is really good. Only played normal multiplayer yesterday, jumped into Blackout solos this morning, got a win on my 10th match, it’s a lot of fun. If you see me online I’d be down to do some Blackout squads. Solo is fun but too stressful.
EDIT: On Xbox.
Yeah, I agree. I don’t like to do solos in any BR game. I prefer duos or quads.
