The Number Is In!
GameInformer has said that there cover for the October magazine is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and that this issue will be all about the Blackout mode coming to Black Ops 4.
They said there will be month-long coverage of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 along with new reveals, new info, and more coming in their magazine and website throughout September.
There first reveal is to confirm that the player count for the Blackout beta will be 80 players.
What’s really more important to us than a number is that the gameplay experience is as refined as it can be, that’s it the ideal perfect format for what players are going to play. So we’re starting with 80 players, but we’ve gone higher than that. Whenever we launch a game as a beta or whatever, that’s the beginning of something. We’re going to actively be participating in the community and taking feedback, making changes and adapting, evolving the game as feedback rolls in. So there’s a lot that can go on that can happen beyond that first impact of the game going out there.
