A big part of this will be down to the fact that Blackout now supports up to 80 players on a single map, which was a technical challenge for those behind the Call of Duty engine. Previously, players got their first look at the mode's map, which looks quite large. One match of Blackout will invariably break down into smaller-scale battles within classic Black Ops maps - an advantage dedicated Call of Duty players will absolutely make the most of.
Based on what we see above, it appears that developer Treyarch (with help from Beenox) is set to seriously deliver on the promise of a Call of Duty battle royale mode, with wing suits, land, sea and air vehicles, killstreak perks and even zombies getting their time in the spotlight. We also get a glimpse of what Nuketown Island is all about, and it looks to be just as fun as promised. Starting on September 14, those who pre-ordered the game on PlayStation 4 can check out Blackout for themselves.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 arrives for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12th, but you won't have to wait that long to try Blackout yourself. While it's recently been confirmed that each game of Blackout will only host 80 players, Treyarch has stated this number exclusively takes the beta into account. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.
