Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Patch is a beast
If you’re one of the players who’ve ordered a physical copy of Black Ops 4 there’s a little bad new you need to know about; the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Patch for day one comes in at 50GB and it’s needed to be able to play the game.
Activision warned under their support area that disc users are going to have to download the update and install it in order to play any aspect of the game. The devs stated that you’re going to need around 112 GB of space available on your console (or PC) hard drive “for an optimised download experience”. Although the download is only 50GB, the final installation footprint (the size of the base game’s required space essentially) comes in the region of 55 GB.
This means that players who wish to play Zombies, multiplayer or the specialist headquarters features of the game are going to have to grit their teeth and watch the progress bar. If however you wish to play the battle royale or Blackout modes of the game, the good news is that you’re only going to have to see that progress reach 30 percent which comes in at around 16-20gb of the entire install.
What about the digital version?
If you’ve opted for the digital version of the game the final installation is going to be about 55G B on release day.
That’s about everything in a nutshell for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Patch on day one. May be worth whacking the disc in and going to watch a film, specially if your internet isn’t fibre!
