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. At the very least, maybe developers will be able to keep day one updates at a reasonable size. Blackout can be played as soon as update installation/download reaches 30% on either PS4, or Xbox One.
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.
With all this said and done, how much will Black Ops 4 take up on your hard drive?
The official Activision site states that after the 50 GB patch the final installation footprint will be around 55 GB in size on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The update is only applicable to the physical version of the military shooter, and is required in order to get your hands on the regular multiplayer mode, Zombies, and Specialist Headquarters. Equating to roughly 30% completion. Remember when we reported that early copies won't work due to the game needing a Black Ops 4 day one update? Suggesting that the day one update has already been applied to the game files available to preload as of tomorrow on PS4.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the first game in the series to launch with a proper main story campaign, however, the focus has been on the Blackout mode that promises 100 player battle royale for the first time in a Call of Duty game. Especially if your internet is a little slow.
Black Ops 4 officially releases on Friday, October 12 and the servers are expected to go live in the United Kingdom on Thursday afternoon.
