Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Review Roundup

Total number of hours played per player are up tremendously, and PC players are up twofold from a year ago in the three-day launch period. In addition to $500 million in launch sales, Black Ops 4 also sets record numbers for the franchise in players, hours played, and even hours watched on Twitch! After its first three days of availability, Black Ops 4 has generated half a Billion Dollars for Activision. Not only did it trump Call of Duty: WWII in terms of player count, it also amassed a greater following than Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Finally, on PlayStation alone, Black Ops 4 set a global, new day one record on the PlayStation Store for digital full game sales.

Despite the slight sales slump, Black Ops 4 is still massively successful.

We already got a patch for the military shooter earlier in the week, although that one was focussed on the battle royale mode, Blackout.

The couple will next travel to Fraser Island, off the coast of Queensland, with a visit to Lake McKenzie planned on Monday. Following a non-stop itinerary of events since arriving in Sydney , Meghan Markle is taking a break.

While it did not break Grand Theft Auto V's record from 2013, it is still a huge achievement for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Sell-through figures include Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII retail and digital unit sales, as well as Season Pass sales.

The number of users playing the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, which is the first entry in the series on Blizzard's Battle.net, is also more than double year of year. It's rated M for Mature (Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Strong Language).

"Black Ops is back!"

Initially after the release of Multiplayer trailer the fans were not expecting much out of this (you can see that with the like-to-dislike ratio bar on the video). All other trademarks and trade names are the properties of their respective owners.
