'Call of Duty: Black Ops 4' Teases New Nuketown Map

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 requires a whopping 112GB of hard drive space, and it seems 50GB of that is devoted to a mandatory day one update. As for Blackout, its battle royale mode, it will be playable when around 30 percent of the update has been completed. The aptly named Nuketown Island was one of the hotspots for players during the Blackout beta with many people gravitating towards the different-but-familiar location, so it'll likely still be a contested spot when the game fully launches. According to Activision, players can expect the day one patch to come in at around 50GB.

On PlayStation 4 you'll need to have more room set aside, though, as it states that for an "optimized download experience" you'll want 112 GB of free hard drive space. 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.

The digital version clocks in at 55GB for the game and its patch on day one - and it also means you'll not need to switch out discs.

A couple of weeks ago, Treyarch's David Vonderhaar said that the developer and Activision's forthcoming first-person shooter, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, would only contain 11 multiplayer maps in total.

South African retailers will be dishing out copies early so players can get the patch downloaded.

Treyarch claimed that it is serious about the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, so it will be interesting to see whether the team has addressed the low-resolution textures in the Blackout mode, and whether it will run smoothly on various PC configurations.
