Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 - how big a problem is the lack of story campaign?

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 – a beefy install

This years COD is the latest new game to have a massive day one patch and install requirements, as leaks reveal itll come with 14 maps.

Black Ops 4 might be a particularly extreme example but unfortunately giant installs, and day one patches, have become an everyday part of video game launches.

Red Dead Redemption II currently holds the record with a massive 105GB install but Black Ops 4 has got almost half that just for its day one patch – and the game wont work without it either.

For a problem free install you need 112GB of free hard drive, although once its finished the game will only take up around 55GB of space.

The only upside is that Blackout, the new Battle Royale mode, becomes playable once the install is around 30% done.

As usual Call Of Duty is split up into three almost entirely separate games: the standard multiplayer, co-op Zombies, and the new Blackout – which replaces the usual story campaign.



Black Ops 4 officially releases on Friday, October 12 and the servers are expected to go live in the UK on Thursday afternoon.

A leak on Reddit seems to confirm that the multiplayer features 14 different maps, 10 of which are brand new and four of which (Firing Range, Jungle, Slums, and Summit) are remakes.

Nuketown is also coming in November and then of course therell be the usual additions via DLC after that.
