Black Ops 4 PC Beta Supports Less Players Than PS4

Black Ops 4 PC beta supports less players than PlayStation 4. This is due to developers needing sone more time to refine the beta.

Black Ops 4 PC beta is now live on PC and Xbox One but players will notice that it supports fewer players on the map. According to Treyarch, Xbox One and PC only supports 80 players for now compared to 88 on PS4. However, once developers better optimize the beta, player count will be increased.

In addition to the announcing the player count, developers have released a new Black Ops 4 PC beta update. It makes some general changes and fixes to the beta. Some minor tuning helps to optimize overall experience.
