Gamers with data-caps, be wary of Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 as the FPS juggernaut will have a colossal day one update.

Blackout, Call of Duty's new battle royale mode, will be playable once the download reaches about thirty percent completion, although you will most probably suffer from high ping and lag spikes if you play while downloading the rest of the game.

Are you anxious about having to download 50GB for Black Ops 4, or does it not bother you? No doubt there will be rare animated versions of these tied to some sort of challenge in-game.


This Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 day one update is needed to access the game's multiplayer and Zombies modes along with what's being described as the Specialist Headquarters. Treyarch claimed that it really values the mod community, though it has not 100% confirmed yet whether Black Ops 4 will indeed support mods or not.

Elsewhere, Activision also recommends having around 112GB of free space on your console before downloading. 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. The patch itself will be approximately 50 GB. While GAME's move is considerate, it comes because retail chains tend to demand that physical versions launch alongside their digital counterparts.

South African retailers will be dishing out copies early so players can get the patch downloaded. Raru pre-orders can expect delivery on Thursday too.
