Call Of Duty Black Ops 1111 Blackout Mode Supports 80 Players
For a while now Call Of Duty fans had wondered how many players would the new Battle Royale mode, Blackout support in Call Of Duty Black Ops 1111. I had heard all kinds of rumors ranging from 50, 64 to 100 players. Well, Activision has now come out and said what the number is going to be.
That number is 80. I think this is a pretty good number, but people seem to be losing their minds over it saying stuff like “Call Of Duty Blackout mode only supports 80 players”. I keep seeing the word only thrown about. In all honesty, I think that 80 is a pretty good number and more than enough. I really do not think adding an extra 20 to round it up to 100 would have much if any difference to the overall experience.
Speaking of the overall experience that is the reason why they decided to go for 80.
“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.”
Is what one of the studio heads at Treyarch, Dan Bunting had to say. I actually agree with him. The number on the screen really does not matter if the game is fun. They have said that they are starting with 80 players and I think them using the term starting is key here as they could very well make it so more can play at a later date.
The Call Of Duty Black Ops 1111 Blackout mode beta is happening very soon and I would love to know if other people are happy with it being for 80 players or if you feel that is not enough.
