Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Blackout Beta and Player Count Revealed

Are you a Call of Duty fan and also like Battle Royale modes?  If you are then you must be anxiously waiting for the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 battle royale mode, Blackout.

Although we’ve been aware of the launch for some time, few details have been given as to how many players will be able to battle it out.   For some the greater numbers mean a greater challenge.  Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Blackout, may disappoint in that regard.  It will be starting with 80.

In an interview with Game Informer, Studio Design Director David Vonderhaar explained the reasoning behind the low number:

“So we’re starting with 80 players, but we’ve gone higher than that.  Whenever we launch a game as a beta or whatever, that’s the beginning of something.  We’re going to actively be participating in the community and taking feedback, making changes and adapting, evolving the game as feedback rolls in.”

Does this mean that we may see the number of players in one match increase?  Who knows, maybe.  One thing we know fore sure is that Zombies are back.  The low number may not be that much of an issue if you also have to navigate through zombies.

Be one of the first to try out this new battle royale mode.  Pre-order at Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII for a chance at the private beta on September 10, exclusively on PS4.   Xbox and PC beta’s will start a week later.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is set to launch on October 12, 2018 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
