The Battle Royale mode (called Blackout) is definitely one of the biggest news of Call of Duty Black Ops 4, however, the first questions emerge: how many players will be supported in Blackout mode?
One of the most important news of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the Blackout mode, which is based on the popular battle royale genre, where players battle each other in huge maps until only one is left standing. The two most popular title of the moment, PUBG and Fortnite, present match with 100 participants, however, Treyarch has not yet decided how many Blackout will support.
Speaking with GameSpot, David Vonderhaar of Treyarch revealed that the studio has not yet decided the number of players allowed in Blackout: “We haven’t actually decided. We have to create the best experience, and to create that experience in a Call of Duty universe, you have to try various flavors of that until you find the right one.
Blackout will present a large map about 1,500 times Nuketown and will allow players to use objects, weapons and characters from even the previous Black Ops episodes.
On the issue related to the number of players in the Battle Royale mode Michael Pachter also intervened, which raises a doubt, according to the information in his possession the Engine of Black Ops 4 will be able to support a maximum of 32 players, a rather limited number for a mode of this type. Vonderhaar for his part, reiterates that the studio is not currently interested in the numbers and therefore it will be necessary to wait for official details.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will be released on October 12 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, there is no confirmation at the time about a possible arrival of the Activision shooter on Nintendo Switch.
.@geoffkeighley My understanding is that the Call of Duty game engine allows only 32 players at once (set up for 16 on 16 team play), so betting it’s a 32 person death match. I understand Battelfield’s Frostbite engine allows 64 . . . https://t.co/L22zQ6tUkc
