Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has a 50GB day one patch

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has a 50GB day one patch

Black Ops 4 might be a particularly extreme example but unfortunately giant installs, and day one patches, have become an everyday part of video game launches.

Black Ops 4 officially releases on Friday, October 12 and the servers are expected to go live in the United Kingdom on Thursday afternoon.

The news comes from a post over on Activision's installation and setup pages for Black Ops 4.

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. Blackout will be fully playable when the download reaches 30%, which is about 16-20GB depending on the platform.

Though users can opt to buy a physical disc for Black Ops 4, it's probably not the best way to get the game unless it's cheaper and you have uncapped internet.

This year's COD is the latest new game to have a massive day one patch and install requirements, as leaks reveal it'll come with 14 maps. If you've pre-ordered the digital version of the game then you'll be all set to go as the game will go live with the patch already included. The company also stated that you'd need at least 112GB free space to complete the update with the final Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 install size being around 55GB. To help counter this a little, Activision is allowing select retailers to start selling the physical versions of the game the day before release.

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.
