Black Ops 4 Has 14 Multiplayer Maps at Launch

Black Ops 4 Has 14 Multiplayer Maps at Launch

"This update must be installed completely in order to access Multiplayer, Zombies, and Specialist Headquarters", Activision said. Blackout is fully playable once installation is about 30 percent complete (approximately 16-20 GB). Treyarch thanked their optimization for the day one experience to allow a manageable download in todays AAA market. While we've been seeing game sizes increase over the last few years, usually buying a disc means you get to skip some downtime by having the files ready to install. To help mitigate this, some game retailers plan on selling Black Ops 4 ahead of their usual midnight release.

John is a freelance writer for IGN UK with a love for all things stealthy, ginny and noisy.

The official Activision site states that after the 50 GB patch the final installation footprint will be around 55 GB in size on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You still won't be able to play the game until midnight, mind, but at least you'll be able to bang out the download beforehand.




According to the post "players should have 112 GB of free hard drive space" in order to begin the install process of Black Ops 4 on PS4. "Download speeds may vary based on region, platform, connection type, and the speed of your internet connection".

Black Ops 4 officially releases on Friday, October 12 and the servers are expected to go live in the United Kingdom on Thursday afternoon. While GAME's move is considerate, it comes because retail chains tend to demand that physical versions launch alongside their digital counterparts. The map was also noticeably absent from the list of multiplayer maps in Black Ops 4 that was revealed days ago with "Nuketown" nowhere to be found on that list.
