Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout Mode “Can Run At 60 FPS”
New details on the Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout mode have started emerging online this week, but not all details about the matter are going to make fans of the series happy.
In a recent video with Game Informer, Treyarch's David Vonderhaar talked about the Blackout mode's performance, saying that it can run at 60 FPS, but it's hard to maintain this frame rate at all times. Vonderhaar further added that the mode won't be locked below 60 FPS, so we should expect performance drops when the action gets hectic. Additionally, Vonderhaar didn't specify platforms, so it's highly probable that the PC version may not suffer from this issue.
Earlier this week, it's been confirmed that the Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout mode will support up to 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.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 launches on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 12th.
