Call of Duty


 

Any of the Sneaky Petes out there who have obtained an early copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will not be able to play it until the game is updated near launch.

Leaked copies of Call of Duty games are an inevitability every year, but developer Treyarch is getting out ahead of these deviants by locking Black Ops 4 until a day-one update makes the game accessible, similar to what Sledgehammer Games did with Call of Duty: WWII last year. This news came from an image posted by Twitter user Ateam_ShAdoWw, who got an error message when trying to boot up the game pre-launch.

It’s unclear exactly when this update will go live, but it will presumably be as close to launch as Treyarch can get away with. It is also currently unclear if this requirement applies to all forms of the game, or only physical copies, but we do know it means an internet connection is required to start playing Black Ops 4.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is launching October 12th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game’s PC preload on Battle.net will go live tomorrow, October 9th.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 literally unplayable without day-one update

Getting an early copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 won't do you much good without its day-one update.
