Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Requires 50GB Day One Patch

Adjust Comment Print

A little while back, it was discovered that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will require a minimum of 100GB storage space on your PS4, but a new report from Eurogamer provides a little more detail on the matter. Activision has warned that those who buy the physical version of the game will have to download a sizeable day one patch before they're able to play. The Blackout battle royale game mode will apparently be fully playable once 16-20 GB of the install is completed. The installation process should be simple enough on Xbox One, but due to the slightly more roundabout way that the PS4 copies data, you'll need to jump through a few hoops. According to Activision, players can expect the day one patch to come in at around 50GB. If ever there was a case for going digital, then Black Ops 4 is it.

With all this said and done, how much will Black Ops 4 take up on your hard drive?

The Federal Emergency Management Agency had numerous teams deployed and ready to respond, said FEMA spokesman Jeff Byard. A hurricane warning is in effect from the Suwannee River on Florida's Gulf Coast west to the Alabama / Florida line.

Well, at least you can play Blackout with only 30 percent of the game installed, but still, the fact that a minimum 50GB download is required to play all of Black Ops 4 isn't great. You can pre-order this bundle right now from Amazon India while offline game stores should be having it from October 12.

The final installation footprint on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be approximately 55GB, we're told.

As usual Call Of Duty is split up into three nearly entirely separate games: the standard multiplayer, co-op Zombies, and the new Blackout - which replaces the usual story campaign. Despite that, the devs have recommended that you have about 112 GB of space free on your hard drive.
