Treyarch has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be available to preload on PC via Battle.net from tomorrow, October 9th.
In addition, the developer confirmed that the game’s battle royale Blackout mode will be capped at 120 FPS at launch. However, this will be raised to 144 FPS “as soon as the servers are stable.” Finally, the cap will be upped to unlimited “within the first few days,” as long as everything remains stable.
“During the Blackout Beta, we made the decision to cap it at 90 FPS to monitor performance and online stability. The reason for this approach was that as a Beta we had a lot of testing to do. It made sense for getting the game right for the whole community, and we were happy with the end result and the data we pulled from this approach,” the developer explained in a Reddit post.
“We’ve come a long way since the Beta, thanks to all your feedback, but we still want to roll things out carefully. Since the frame rate affects the load on the servers, we want to ensure that the game delivers a great playable experience for everyone who dives in those first moments.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launches October 12th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
