Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Sets Record Sales & Twitch Hours

"Tomorrow, we're releasing a substantial update to Black Ops 4 with a host of improvements, fixes, and additions across all modes, including new stability for Zombies".

The game publisher announced earlier today that Black Ops 4 has achieved the biggest digital launch-day sales in history. The stunningly-well revamped multiplayer element is very much the centrepiece of Black Ops 4, and if you're one of those gamers who typically finds multiplayer intimidating you might want to bear in mind that the forthcoming Battlefield V will have a single-player campaign (and multiplayer which places much less of a premium on ninja-like fast-twitch ability). Fans can pre-order now and get access to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Private Beta. In the first three days on PC, the "number of players is more than double" the same period for last year's game.

Call of Duty, the franchise which bought revolution to the modern FPS games with the release of its revolutionary MW series along with the hits, Black Ops and World at War. Our player counts and hours played are up year over year, our viewership on Twitch has set new standards and is showing just how fun Blackout is to play and to watch.

Finally, on PlayStation alone, Black Ops 4 set a global, new day one record on the PlayStation Store for digital full game sales. It also saw the highest active player count of any installment, while setting the record for average and total hours played in an opening weekend. The developers didn't really go into detail about what changes we can expect, but we're assuming we'll be getting more comprehensive patch notes soon.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is rated M for Mature (Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Strong Language).
