Treyarch has shared a number of changes that it will be making to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s Blackout mode following the beta.

“Blackout is our own distinctive Battle Royale, and we knew we had to make this something special for our fans from the start. Our teams have set out to create a uniquely Black Ops experience, featuring time-tested Call of Dutygameplay, signature Treyarch design philosophy, and a celebration of 10 years of Black Ops heritage,” the developer wrote on Reddit.

“We know we have to nail the things that people love about the genre, improve on the elements that we want to take to the next level, and bring plenty of new ideas to the table. Your feedback this week has been encouraging to say the least, and everyone here at the studio can’t wait to show you what’s coming in the future.”

To start with, audio is being adjusted so that it is impacted by walls, floors, ceilings, and other objects in the world, and the volume of the cargo plane, punching, and game countdown timers are being adjusted. As well as this, teammate’s footsteps will be quieter and all audio presets will be made available.

Another area being looked at is inventory and item management. In the full release, Treyarch is looking to improve the stash interface when looting on consoles, add a new method for removing all attachments from weapons, and offer a way to swap attachments between weapons.

Finally, the developer is looking into improving performance on Xbox One.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launches October 12th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
