Black Ops 4’s day one update weighs in at 50GB

Black Ops 4’s day one update weighs in at 50GB”

Treyarch thanked their optimization for the day one experience to allow a manageable download in todays AAA market.

Well, you probably shouldn't bother, because the disc-based version of Black Ops 4 requires a huge 50GB day one update.

Weighing in at an astonishing 50GB in download size, those who pick up the game physically are going to have to wait hours (or days for some) before they're able to play through the entirety of the game's content.

Furthermore, players should have 112GB of free disk space, though this isn't the size of the download but rather, the amount of space required to complete the installation process. If you find that size a bit too big, there's a little bit of good news though, according to Activision, players can play Blackout in full with just 30 percent installed (about 16-20GB), though you'll need to download and install a day one update completely in order to play Multiplayer, Zombies or Specialist Headquarters.

The only upside is that Blackout, the new Battle Royale mode, becomes playable once the install is around 30% done.

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.

The day one update package is roughly 50 GB. BT Games and Game4U stores will have copies available from 6PM on Thursday, with BT Games expected to stay open until at least 8PM on Thursday.

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 releases on October 12!
