If you’re one of the poor burgers getting by on sub-par broadband speeds, Black Ops 4’s day one update is going to be a killer.
For those who opted for the physical disc version if the game, the day one update is mandatory in order to play Zombies, Multiplayer, and Specialist Headquarters. The good news is that to play Black Ops 4’s battle royale mode, Blackout, you’ll only need around 30% of the download in order to start playing.
For those who pre-ordered the digital version of the game, the day one update will be rolled into the game’s pre-load data which should ease the burden a little. For those who’ve pre-ordered physical copies, some retailers are letting the game go at 6PM October 11th in order to give players time to download the hefty update. If this is something you can potentially take advantage of, it’s worth asking the retailer that’s holding your pre-order.
It’s a bit of a farce, really, but this is the modern age of gaming where games can ship on a disc but unless you download extra data, that disc is no more fun than a doormat.
