Call of Duty Black Ops 4 may support mods, Treyarch will look at adding support post-launch
Activision has revealed that there will be a huge 50 GB day one patch for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One when it releases.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out this week, bringing the anticipated sequel's nearly entirely multiplayer shenanigans to PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Otherwise, you'll be locked out of all those other modes.
In light of the comments from Scronce, it seems as though this was an intended change to discourage players from using the move without worry of any drawbacks. A full download will be required, however, for regular multiplayer modes, Zombies, and Specialist Headquarters.
You're probably wondering exactly how important this patch is for playing the game and whether or not you'll be able to at least dive into some modes before play? 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. Blackout, CoD's take on battle royale, can be played once installation is about 30 percent complete. 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. 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. This patch is already available for the digital version so only retail copies will be affected by this change.
South African retailers will be dishing out copies early so players can get the patch downloaded.
Black Ops 4 is out on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 12.
