Less than 4 days till the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, developer Treyarch revealed that players on PC can start preloading on Tuesday, 9 October and Consoles can start pre-loading from Wednesday, 10 October as well as some more details about the battle royale mode Blackout will start with a 120fps cap, up from 90fps in the beta, and will be raised to uncapped later on in upcoming updates.
Posting in the Black Ops 4 subreddit, Treyarch said those who pre-ordered the game via Battle.net can begin downloading the game on Tuesday. That gives you three days to have everything ready, with Black Ops 4 slated to release Friday, 12 October. Treyarch added that though it wants to support uncapped framerate in Black Ops 4 across game modes, Blackout will start with 120fps cap as it “affects the load on the servers”. The beta was locked to 90fps as the developers had “a lot of testing to do”. Treyarch plans to raise the Blackout fps cap to 144fps “as soon as the servers are stable” and then remove it altogether “within the first few days if all looks good”.
For those playing Black Ops 4 on PS4 and Xbox One, it will be locked to 60fps in all game modes.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out 12 October for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
