Call of Duty Black Ops 4 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

There’s a lot of buzz surrounding Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s new Battle Royale-themed Blackout mode, and it seems like developer Treyarch’s making some pretty impressive adjustments on the fly. With the beta in progress on the PlayStation 4, game design director David Vonderhaar has confirmed on Twitter that the mode’s player count has increased from 80 to 88 today.

While this is still short of the genre’s standard 100 players, we get the distinct feeling that the studio will hit that target eventually – and judging by this story, that may even occur prior to launch on 12th October.
