Black Ops 4 launches next week, and we haven’t been this excited about a Call of Duty game since the release of Treyarch’s previous title. There are many reasons to be excited about this year’s Call of Duty, but for us, it’s Black Ops 4 Blackout.
From our time with the beta, we’re hoping that it will be the next battle royale king, and with all the tweaks Treyarch implemented, we see no reason why it won’t unseat PUBG as the more ‘realistic’ battle royale game. The beta already offered a more refined experience with much better graphics and gameplay.
Black Ops 4 PC – Blackout Details
Treyarch announced via the subreddit for Black Ops 4 that the Blackout PC version will be capped at 120 fps on launch day. You might recall that the beta Blackout framerate was capped at 90fps, so launch day already sees improvement.
Since the framerate affects the load on the servers, we want to ensure that the game delivers a great playable experience for everyone who dives in those first moments.
Treyarch explains that to ensure server stability on launch day, they decided to cap everyone at 120fps. As soon as all the servers are stable, they will raise the cap to 144fps. After as brief as possible testing phase, Treyarch will enable uncapped.

According to the Microsoft Store page for Black Ops 4 the download size for Xbox One is approximately 48.42GB. We can assume that the PS4 download size will be similar, with the PC version perhaps closer to 50GB. I expect the download size to at least double as Treyarch rolls out updates and other content.
