  • Black Ops 4 Battle Royale Update Changed Player Count

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launched last week and, according to figures from Activision, it's already been a huge success.

That's significant as successful launches aren't enough to dub a game a success these days.

Eden Hazard 'happy' to see out career with Chelsea

Black Ops 4's latest update adds a number of stability fixes for the Zombies campaign, so that's IX, Voyage of Despair, Blood of the Dead, and Classified. It's also the best selling worldwide day one digital game for Xbox One. A variety of issues causing the game to crash, particularly on PC, have been fixed and the PC version has been given some stability improvements, hopefully meaning PC players won't be seeing any more blackouts. "We take weapon tuning very seriously and put any proposed tweaks through rigorous internal testing before we consider a change to the game", Treyarch's post reads. - Daniel Tack [Full review] VentureBeat - 90/100 " I hope that Treyarch and Activision see this as a new jumping off point, with frequent updates to add new experiences and maps to Blackout and the other modes. "It is perhaps odd, perhaps even guilt-inducing, to take such pleasure from a game that wears its gung-ho military fetishism as a badge of honour, but as it stands this is the most enjoyable Call of Duty game for several years". For comparison sake, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 hit $650M in sales within in five days of release. With Black Ops 4 jumping into the red-hot Battle Royale genre, investors were expecting an increase over the previous entry's sales, but instead they got a slight decrease.

With Competitive multiplayer complete with 10 different "specialist" characters, Zombies mode, and a new Battle Royale mode, it seems CoD is piquing more people's interest than ever before.
