According to Treyarch, pre-order customers of Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will be able to pre-load the game soon. Pre-loading process will begin on Tuesday, 9 October 2018 and will require Battle.net platform. Players who pre-ordered the game will have 3 days to load and install the game until it launches.
Developers also announced that the battle royale mode, Blackout mode, will be capped at 120 fps on PC platform. This is because the framerate increases the load on the servers and affects the Black Ops 4 player experience. Developers said that they want to “ensure Black Ops 4 delivers a great playable experience” during the release period. According to the information shared, team will increase the cap to 144 fps when the servers become stable.
The framerate cap is exclusive to the Blackout mode. Other multiplayer modes and Zombies mode will be uncapped when Call of Duty Black Ops 4 launches. The team also added that they are committed to supporting an uncapped framerate but they need to be careful at day-one. Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will include 15 maps including the Nuketown map and be released next week. Treyarch announced that the free Nuketown map will be released in November as a downloadable content.
