  • Game Download Size: We’re happy to report that we have made a ton of improvements to optimize the Day 1 experience – the game download will be approximately 55 GB, and it will allow us to pack as much as we can into the game. A full list of details can be found here, and we’re happy to report that Blackout is fully playable once the download reaches about 30% completion (about 16-20 GB depending on platform). (A full download will be required to play Multiplayer, Zombies and Specialist Headquarters).

An Activision Support article has provided more information on the updates based on which version of the game you are buying. Here’s the details:

Before playing for the first time, players will need to download and install a day one update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. This update must be installed completely in order to access Multiplayer, Zombies, and Specialist Headquarters. Blackout is fully playable once installation is about 30% complete (approximately 16-20 GB).

For an optimized download experience, players should have 112 GB of free hard drive space – note that this is not the size of the download, it is the amount of space required to complete the installation process. The final installation footprint will be approximately 55 GB. In order to play Blackout before the full installation is complete, select “Update to Latest Version” when the prompt appears.

When we talk about what we’ve packed into that Day 1 update, this should help you get a better feel for what we’re talking about. This won’t be the average Treyarch livestream – think of it as a video version of a Reddit post. We’re going to get in the weeds. Stay tuned to our Twitter feed and we’ll let you know when it drops.
