Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Royale Mode Blackout Features 80 Players

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is receiving a new wave of information as part of a Game Informer coverage, which is of course focusing on the still mysterious battle royale mode called Blackout.

As revealed in the coverage, the battle royale by Treyarch will start with a player count of 80 in the beta. The developer said it has achieved an even higher number internally but wants to focus on stability for the moment being.

“What’s really more important to us than a number is that the gameplay experience is as refined as it can be, that’s it the ideal perfect format for what players are going to play,” co-studio head Dan Bunting said.

“So we’re starting with 80 players, but we’ve gone higher than that. Whenever we launch a game as a beta or whatever, that’s the beginning of something. We’re going to actively be participating in the community and taking feedback, making changes and adapting, evolving the game as feedback rolls in. So there’s a lot that can go on that can happen beyond that first impact of the game going out there.”

So, as shared by the developer, chances are the player count might be getting higher in the future, after launch, but for now it’s 80 players in the beta and probably upon the day one.
