Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has a 50GB day one patch

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 may support mods, Treyarch will look at adding support post-launch

Physical Copies of Black Ops 4 Require 50GB Day One Update on PS4

Treyarch has announced that while Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will not support mods at launch, it will be looking at adding support after the game's release. To help mitigate this, some game retailers plan on selling Black Ops 4 ahead of their usual midnight release.

In light of the comments from Scronce, it seems as though this was an intended change to discourage players from using the move without worry of any drawbacks. This update must be installed completely in order to access Multiplayer, Zombies, and Specialist Headquarters. As a silver lining, series first Blackout Battle Royale mode will be playable at roughly 30% completion (around 16-20GB).

Though users can opt to buy a physical disc for Black Ops 4, it's probably not the best way to get the game unless it's cheaper and you have uncapped internet.

The reserves had fallen to $8.4 billion last week, which were enough to cover only one and half month's imports bill. It kept the 7.3 per cent growth projection for this year made in July.

The day one patch has become such an issue that United Kingdom shops have been given permission to sell the game a day early, so that everyone has a chance to download the update in a reasonable amount of time. This patch is already available for the digital version so only retail copies will be affected by this change. The installation process should be simple enough on Xbox One, but due to the slightly more roundabout way that the PS4 copies data, you'll need to jump through a few hoops.

Meanwhile, Xbox One owners won't seemingly require the same 112 GB of free hard drive space, but can still expect a 55 GB final install size on their system. In order to play Blackout before the full installation is complete, select "Update to Latest Version" when the prompt appears.

Black Ops 4 is out on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 12.
