The release of the latest Call Of Duty title is almost here and fans are now wondering what the future holds. The most valuable addition to the series has been the Black Ops 4 Blackout mode. David Vonderhaar discussed how developers hope to further change the battle royale mode.
Treyarch revealed information about the game in their extensive interview with Eurogamer. Vonderhaar discussed the possibility of a time of day setting in Black Ops 4 Blackout. David told in this regard:
“So the question is hey, what do you do about time of day settings, is it impossible? It’s actually very possible but we want to be sure that when we unlock that capability in the Blackout map, that we do it in a way that’s not impacting the performance of the existing time of day. So, we actually have that capability and it’s when and how do we deploy that capability. As we said, we’re not going to sacrifice performance for something like time of day, but if we can get time of day changes to work in a way that will not impact the performance of the map, you’ll probably see that in the future.”
This reveal turned out as one of the highlights of the interview. The fact that Treyarch already has these things listed is a positive sign for the fans. But as Vahn suggested the only thing stopping them from doing it is handling other issues first. Once the time of day setting gets implemented it would enhance the gaming experience.
Meanwhile, performance issues also bring up PC frame rates for Black Ops 4 Blackout. Developers have decided to give a 120 capped FPS on PC. Developers could extend player count in case of special events as well.
