Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout Mode will be locked to 120FPS at launch

During the Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta, PC gamers quickly discovered that the game was limited to 90 FPS on the platform, a design decision that was put in place by Treyarch to help them monitor the performance of their servers and increase game stability.     

In a recent post of the Black Ops Subreddit, Treyarch confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout Mode will release with a capped framerate on PC, releasing with a framerate limit of 120FPS. Over time, Treyarch plans to increase this limit to 144FPS and then remove the limit entirely if everything remains stable. This should happen over the first few days after the game’s release. 

Additionally, Treyarch confirmed that Black Ops 4’s traditional multiplayer modes would ship with an uncapped framerate, though it is worth noting that both Zombie mode and traditional Multiplayer modes in Black Ops feature lower player counts, making game server loads lower than the game’s 100-player Blackout mode.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will release on October 12th on PC, releasing exclusively on Blizzard’s Battle.net storefront. Pre-loads for the game start on October 9th.
