Ok so today my blog post is one half advice, one half news. The Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII beta over the weekend was a huge success. I have said this a few times now, but I legit have not heard anyone say that they did not like it.
Once the beta finished I decided to delete the client from my Xbox One. After all, it was done and dusted and taking up around 30 GB (if I remember correctly) of hard drive space and like most of you, hard drive space is premium on my Xbox One.
Well turns out I maybe should have just left it on there. It was just announced that this client will magically become the client for the Black Ops IIII Blackout beta next month! So in other words, if you did not delete it you would not have to wait an hour or so for it to download to start playing Blackout.
Kudos, Treyarch for doing this I just wish I was not so trigger happy on deleting it from my Xbox! No doubt I will be sent a new code when Blackout rolls out, but I will have to wait for the client to download again! Last time it took a couple of hours and that is with fiber optic internet.
So the moral of the story is if you are reading this and going to be part of the Call Of Duty Black Ops IIII Blackout beta in September. Do not be dumb like me! Keep that client there and save yourself another big download.
