Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Fix, Updates, Increased Player Count

While the duos player count goes up, the quads player count is actually decreasing from 100 to 88. It’s a bit of a role reversal as Treyarch/Beenox continue to investigate any potential latency or stability issues with the 100-player mode. At least this should mean squad wins are a little more achievable, reducing the total number of teams competing from 25 down to 22.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Fix, Updates, Increased Player Count

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is currently working in some strange sphere where it’s out but it’s not the finished article yet, particularly in the regards to its Battle Royale-style Blackout mode. Treyarch continues to roll out patches at a steady clip as it addresses fan issues, with the latest COD BLOPS 4 shunting the COD: Black Ops 4 – Blackout duos player count from 88 up to a nice round 100.

The rest of the changes in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Oct. 16 update aren’t quite as interesting, although there are a whole bunch of stability improvements for PC players. This fixes some wide-ranging crash issues such as during an initial boot when disconnecting from a Blackout match, when browsing items, or when changing texture quality. Basically, COD: Black Ops 4 crashes a lot, and this patch should mean it does it a whole lot less.

Stability improvements (PC)

  • Fixed a crash occurring during the initial boot of the game for some users.
  • crashes while disconnecting from a Blackout match is fixed.
  • Fixed a crash occurring when multiple windows were broken simultaneously in a Blackout match.
  • crashes while browsing unlockable Items is fixed
  • Fixed crashes occurring when changing texture quality.
  • Improved handling of “Out of Memory” errors.

Multiplayer

  • TDM playlist now supports parties of 6 (was previously 5).
  • Featured playlist changed to Heist.
  • Custom Search and Destroy games will now correctly conclude after one team wins 6 rounds total, fixing an issue where custom games previously ended at round 7.
  • Addressed a crash caused by earning multiple Medals in a match.

Blackout

  • 100-Players Duos is now the Featured playlist for Blackout.
  • Quads playlist is now 88 maximum players. We’re continuing to update various game settings to ensure the best experience for all players across all platforms and modes

Miscellaneous

  • “Object View Distance” setting now properly renders objects further on “High” than on “Low” in Blackout

Zombies

  • Addressed a UI error caused by losing Internet connection in split screen.
  • Addressed an issue that caused Hellhounds to exhibit some very… un-doglike behavior

General

  • General stability improvements and crash fixes.
  • The Featured playlist tiles for Multiplayer and Blackout have changed. This is part of the regular rotation of Featured playlists – more details to come on how Featured playlists will work in Black Ops 4 in a separate update

Mega Man 11

This isn’t a new Mega Man X title but Megaman 11 looks pretty darn good with its sumptuous visuals. The same platformer shooting action that fans know and love is still here with eight robot masters to fight across eight stages. However, the new double gear system has us more intrigued.

Black Ops 4 System Requirements

Treyarch has announced the details of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC open beta test. They also revealed the Black Ops 4 System Requirements for the upcoming Game. COD: Black Ops 4 is the first ever Call of Duty title to launch exclusively through Blizzard‘s Battle.net, and it arrives on October 12th. Therefore, if you want to join the fight, COD BL-OPS 4 open beta kicks off today, August 11th.

Black Ops 4 Private beta

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-8320 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 2GB or Radeon HD 7850 2GB
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: TBA (25GB in COD: Black Ops 4 PC Beta)

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 3.5GHz
  • RAM: 12 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: TBA (25GB in COD: Black Ops 4 PC Beta)

Besides that, the whole series of Call Of Duty runs on the Infinity Ward Engine. The IW Engine itself is based upon id Tech 3. However, Treyarch hasn’t officially announced the engine for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 yet. In the whole series of Call Of Duty, every developer takes a turn to work upon the Engine with special graphical effects and different capabilities, passing it down to the next game. And we expect the same Engine, Performance, and quality from Black Ops 4 as the Call Of Duty: WWII. Which offers minor advantages over Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s IW 7.0 Next Gen game engine.

In short COD BL-OPS 4 will likely offer very similar performance to Call of Duty: WWII. There is also a bonus for players in BL-OPS 4, i.e an open beta on PC. Therefore, if you are not sure about your PC’s performance, you can always test performance on the Beta.

Open Beta Start time and Platforms

You must get a Black Ops 4 beta code by pre-ordering the game to gain access. If from a store, you will receive a code from the retailer, while digital purchases will grant your account automatic access. On PC, you download the game through BattleNet. You don’t need to pre-order to play the Black Ops 4 beta, though doing so will give you one day of early access.

Open Beta or Private beta for Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 and the platforms it’s available on are mentioned in the image.

Black Ops 4 System Requirements

So we can fairly consider that COD Black Ops 4 is going to be a great looking game. Although it would put a fair amount of load of your RAM and VRAM. We have already read issues regarding COD WWII with 8GB RAM and COD BL-OPS 4 Suggests 8GB minimum RAM, Treyarch are almost assuredly saying that 6GB RAM flat-out won’t run Black Ops 4.

However, the system requirements for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 are nearly similar to Call of Duty: WWII. But if you want to play this game on the 1080p resolution, you are going to need at least Geforce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 390. Because that 2GB VRAM on GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7850 will supposedly only support low-resolution settings. Therefore, if you have the urge to play COD Black Ops 4 on MAX settings, you would probably need GTX 1060 6GB or Radeon RX 580.

Besides that, we should keep it in mind that these system specs and 25 GB of size are only for the beta version of COD BL-OPS 4. It may change at the time of launch, as we can make an assumption after seeing the COD: WWII was a 90GB install at launch.

 

 

Best Multiplayer games of 2017

 Best Multiplayer games of 2017

Gaming has its roots in players playing against each other in arcades. Whether by directly facing off or just trying to beat each other’s high scores. So, of course, multiplayer is a hugely integral component of video games. 2017 Offered us a great amount of fantastic multiplayer games. let’s take a look at those games.

Lawbreakers

Lawbreakers cover

‘Lawbreakers’ is Cliff Bleszinski’s entry into the hero shooter genre. It does have a little bit of a grittier look than overwatch. But it also retains a lot of what makes hero shooters interesting. Also despite being a little bit grittier it still has a nice very colorful palette. There’s a certain verticality that they want to emphasize with the game. Having levels that definitely go up and down a lot more than your typical shooters levels.

But I will say this game does face a lot of stiff competition. This is a pretty crowded genre, and it has to be really good to stand out. But if there is anybody who can do it it’s probably Cliff Bleszinski.

Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th cover

Now, what if an imperfect game actually really succeeds in some pretty big ways. First, it’s an asymmetric game which feels like it should evolve. So it has a hurdle in perception to get over. And the launch of the game didn’t specifically do a great job getting over that hurdle. There were numerous bugs and server issues. But that has been addressed and it has left us with a pretty interesting game.

There’s a lot of interesting details in the game all the way down to its music cues. Which, depending on how fast Jason is running actually changes. This big hide-and-seek game actually works really well, rather being a little inconsistent. But that’s kind of to be expected with an asymmetric multiplayer game. And if this is the next evolution of evolving, then this is a genre that might actually have some legs.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite cover

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite obviously continues the tradition of perhaps one of the most chaotic fighting games there is. But if you’ve ever played a Marvel vs. Capcom title you know that they’re also primo fighting game material. They’ve got what you want if you want fast-paced chaotic fighting game action, it delivers on that. And has delivered on that for years and years.

Now, this version of the game has never disappointed me in the past. I can’t imagine this being a bad game. I mean unless they slice it up and do the stupid modern fighting game thing. Where there’s no content unless you buy stuff. well, we don’t know. Hopefully, they don’t. Maybe they’ll learn a lesson from Street Fighter and the type of reception that they got.

Divinity original sin II

Divinity original sin II cover

  Divinity original sin II is a phenomenal single-player game. But on top of that, it is such a good tactical multiplayer RPG. Basically, if you can imagine tactical strategy RPGs as a MOBA, it’s the game’s multiplayer mode. And it is so cool as it works incredibly well. On top of that, you have the divinity original sin aesthetic. Which, let’s just be honest, it is one of the better aesthetics in a game right now.

You would think it’d be really impossible with the way that the game is set up. But somehow it actually manages to put itself together in one of the better more cohesive multiplayer experiences. especially in turn-based RPG.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon wildlands

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon wildlands cover

A tactical open world, first-person shooter, with some damn good co-op. If this is a game you like in single-player, then this is a game you will ‘love’ in multiplayer. You and three other players explore this massive game world, and you basically get to experience the campaign together. It’s a great game as it is, but even better if you play it with friends.

It’s been criticized for not having a massive jump over previous Tom Clancy games. But I think it’s probably the best recent Tom Clancy game. It doesn’t introduce a heck of a lot of new features, but it’s just a lot of quality. And I think that it’s not entirely revolutionary, yet certainly worth your time.

For honor

For honor cover arts

For honor is a sort of action based hand-to-hand combat multiplayer game. Which I had to say, if you’ve ever played, it’s one of the most interesting experiences. Now, not everybody loves this game, however part of the reason was the matchmaking, which just got a massive fix. I tried it out again after the fix and frankly, it works just much better. It’s much more functional, in case that something that’s kept you off of it.

It’s kind of a game that is specific, so there’s going to be some people that don’t like it. But if you think that a melee game where you essentially build your own character class. Within the conformist of hand-to-hand combat sounds appealing to you. It’s pretty much that and this game wins at it, it’s a very good game.

Halo Wars II

Halo Wars II cover

In my opinion, it is a significant improvement over the first Halo Wars. For one, the game was developed by Creative Assembly, who, as you may know, did the Total War series. And all of that experience shows through in Halo Wars II.

In my opinion, it is a much more cohesive RTS than the first outing. And there are so many different multiplayer modes that you will never get bored of it. There’s co-op, deathmatch, stronghold, domination, blitz there’s just so many different ways to play. Blitz is actually my favorite because it brings in the collectible card game element, instead of the base building element. And believe it or not, I actually enjoy that more. I mean for 2017 I sincerely doubt you’re going to do a lot better than this game. There are some minor issues like for instance the AI, the pathfinding is a little weird at times. But it’s really the ‘multiplayer’ where the game shines as if it was specifically designed for that in my opinion. And come on its ‘Halo’. Halo is a huge part of gaming tradition at this point.

Absolver

Absolver cover

It is a highly stylized RPG slash fighting game. It is interesting because the fighting system is very much like a 3d fighting game. You can see a little bit of that Witcher style tactical dodging. But the fighting itself revolves around martial arts move sets.

The game intends to sort of merge various multiplayer modes. Such as free-roaming, co-operative, and competitive play all into one thing. Intending to feel like a massively multiplayer online game. The game also has a really unique style, some describe it as hyperrealism. But the people in the game don’t really look hyper-realistic. And the world itself does trend towards a ‘so real it’s not real’ kind of look. It’s very pretty and I think this is a really interesting game.

Destiny 2

Destiny 2 cover

It is a game that I expect to actually be what destiny was when they first started. Now when you talk about destiny. You have to keep in mind that destiny has evolved into what I would consider being a very good game. Through expansions and updates has managed to turn itself into what it was advertised in the first place. And now that they’re releasing a game with all of that experience under their belt, that starts off at this point I think they are probably in a good place.

Destiny wasn’t my favorite when it came out. But I’ve very rarely seen people who have revisited it later and said wow this didn’t get any better and again it’s Bungie they have first-person shooting down I think they just didn’t have level design and multiplayer free roam down because I don’t think they’ve ever done that now they kind of have that experience and I’m excited about it, Destiny 2 should be pretty badass actually.

Star Wars Battlefront 2

Star wars Battelfront II cover

I’m a huge fan of the original Battlefront, however, I had a lot of criticism for the amount of content. I also legitimately just hated that there wasn’t a single-player campaign but that’s being remedied so let’s talk about the multiplayer. The looks of it they’ve really layered out the multiplayer in a good way.

There’s actually quite a few balancing issues that have clearly been addressed. The heroes are not so overpowered, they can’t be defeated but they are definitely on market advancement over the regular units. they now have also phase based multiplayer levels in which there are three different areas of the map for you to be fighting, and we’ve seen that as feed palace and frankly I really like that type of idea. I think it all comes together to create something that is much much more than the first game which is exactly what we needed. Also, all updates will be free and everybody will have access to everything, which is as far as I’m concerned the biggest improvement.

Gwent

Gwent cover

It is the card game from The Witcher which is such a damn fun game, it makes sense that they wanted to do this legitimately it’s very easy to get sucked into Gwent. Which is exactly why it’s a good thing they’re making this game, now they’ve expanded the pond of Gwent, given a lot more courage a lot more rules and frankly, I’m excited to get lost in this game. Again frankly I’ve gotten lost in it in the Witcher game and it was actually quite a while where I ended up really distracting myself from what I was trying to do in the game. Just because Gwent so damn fun now I get to do that with real life. Gwent is available to on PC, PS4 & XBOX ONE

Crackdown 3

Crackdown 3 cover

It is exactly what I’ve wanted forever, I love Red Faction, I love destructible environments. I’ve always wanted a game that placed you in a more densely populated area with those same capabilities. Crackdown 3 is that game.

And it has been a long time coming. The technology behind this game has been extensive in its development. And they want to make sure that when you go into this you get exactly what it says it is. That’s why there’s cloud processing to handle all the extra physics that might not be normally used in a game like this, but they want you to be able to bring down buildings. And not some of the buildings, not some of the structures, not some of the destruction, that you expect out of crackdown 3, all of it.

And that’s why I’m happy that they’ve waited this long to release it because I feel like the only reason they would have is to ensure that it is exactly what it looks like it is.

Quake champions

Quake champions cover

Which is a long way to return to the Quake franchise, they’re doing it in the style of a hero based, class-based, shooter which ultimately leads us to have to bring up overwatch, the idea of an over quake or a quake for watch is basically, in my opinion, a very good idea, because quake handles a very specific way in a way that overwatch frankly doesn’t.

Overwatch is a very different game from quake obviously, but incorporating those class elements into quake I think it’s going to result in a very interesting and fun experience that I have a feeling will please old quake fans as well as bring a lot of new fans to the series. I don’t know if they’re gearing up for a single-player quake and this is kind of the way to reintroduce people to it as well as create a multiplayer gaming platform that they can charge microtransactions on, I have no idea but I look forward to enjoying quake champions.

Call of Duty World War 2

Call of Duty World War 2 cover

It will most likely bring you all of the weird stuff that Call of Duty multiplayer brings, from zombies to totally out there modes frankly, the most creative part of a Call of Duty game is typically the ‘multiplayer’ and I know that they’re not going to do this, but you know what I would love, if they did a multiplayer mode where all the infinite warfare was in a world war 2 setting.

I think that would just be hilarious as well as interesting because you’d have the option to do it which I think is basically the main complaint about that stuff and also it’d be really fun troll with you ask me, but obviously this is the Call of Duty game that people have been requesting for several years now so to really pull out no stops on the multiplayer this one basically has to be the best one that they’ve done in a very long time.

Otherwise, they are probably going to lose some people, so I fully expect it to be a no-holds-barred COD multiplayer experience.

Nintendo arms

Nintendo arms cover

On the surface, this looks like an extremely basic game that might involve a lot of motion control gimmicks, but what it actually turned out to be it was a fantastic fighting game. So I’ll say these 3d fighting games are often things that are specifically difficult to make, on the other hand, Absolver looks great because it is more than just a fighting game, Nintendo Arms manages to be nothing but a 3d fighting game that works so incredibly well and manages to be incredibly refreshing in the way only a Nintendo product can be.

You’ve got spring arms you punch with them it is kind of ultra-boxing, there’s other moves and throws and whatnot, but really the best way to understand how good this game is, is simply to experience it. It is unique and it’s beyond enjoyable.
