If you are a PlayStation 4 owner then you may have already been enjoying Blackout mode thanks to the beta on PlayStation 4 that started a little earlier than PC and Xbox One which is coming later this week.
Well, something cool has actually happened I did not notice this until a buddy of mine had pointed it out…. Even though I was playing the game! We all knew that the player count for Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII Blackout mode was going to be 80 players per game. Treyarch did say that this was to start with and that 80 was never officially the most players that the game could handle.
It turns out they were able to up the player count far quicker than many people thought as already they have increased it to 88 players! This is pretty amazing that they were able to do this so fast. Maybe they just wanted to make sure that their servers were going to be strong enough. The more players the better. So while I was not bothered about the player count being 80 adding in 8 extra more people is great with me.
No doubt Treyarch and Activision will be hoping to get this number up to 100 like Fortnite Battle Royale has. Maybe they will go even further and try to put more than 100! I think the map that is being used in Blackout mode is certainly big enough to handle more players.
I really think that Treyarch has struck gold with Blackout mode and it is going to make Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII the biggest selling game of 2018.
