The recently leaked box art for Black Ops 4 reveals that the game will take up 100GB of space on the PS4.

Black Ops 4 isn’t due to be released until October 12, but that hasn’t stopped details about the game from coming out as we near the launch date.

The latest reveal comes in the form of box art that shows the amount of space you’ll need on your hard drive to get started once you’ve got the game in hand.

The back cover of the game reveals that, on PS4 at least, the game will require a whopping 100GB of space.

It’s expected that most of that space will be comprised of Day 1 updates and other content that will come post-launch.

The Xbox One art doesn’t provide how much space is required, but the Xbox One Store currently lists the game as needing just 42GB of space.

Developed by Treyarch, Black Ops 4 will be the first Call of Duty to not have a single-player campaign mode, as the team shifts focus to other modes.

One such mode is Blackout, Treyarch’s take on the battle royale, that features a map 1,500 times the size of Nuketown. Blackout’s beta was well-received by players and has many prominent streamers such as DrDisrespect and Shroud anxiously waiting for the game’s full release.

Black Ops Cold War player hits first prestige without a single kill

An extremely patient Call of Duty player has just reached first prestige in Black Ops Cold War, without ever dealing damage to their opponents.

The name of the game with Call of Duty has always been simple. Kill your opponents before they kill you. It’s the core principle for which every other system in the franchise has been built around.

While a majority of players stick to fundamentals and play the game as intended, there’s always some that veer from the path. As gamers are sinking their teeth into Black Ops Cold War, many have reached new heights with the innovative prestige system. Though one player has taken their time in reaching the very first prestige.

They’re not worrying about their KD. They don’t care for weapon camos or powerful attachments. They’re never trying to top the leaderboards. All this player cares about is ending each match with zero kills to their name.

This player reached first prestige in Black Ops Cold War without a single kill to their name.

It took a full 37 hours of game time for Reddit user ‘Pilgore1’ to accomplish their goal. Without ever killing another player, they reached the first prestige over the course of 200 games.

Their highest killstreak throughout this effort was a whopping zero. This player literally never acquired a single-elimination, not even accidentally. Instead, they spent their time focusing on other aspects of the game.

Playing the objective and “clearing the sky,” were the key factors that gained this player XP over time. It clearly took longer than the typical prestige, but they still managed to make it happen.

Surprisingly, their overall record was positive despite the lack of slaying power. 102 wins to 83 losses was the final tally. They even had a career-best winning streak of seven games in a row, according to the player.

They used “all three LMGs” with a heavy focus on “vehicle damage” attachments. Moreover, the Engineer perk came in handy as did Cold Blooded. When the skies were clear of enemy streaks and it came time to focus on the objective, however, they simply “[threw their] body on there.”

There’s no telling what drove them to play Call of Duty in such a unique way. Though they still managed to enjoy the process. “I just find doing it fun,” they explained. “I also have a lot, maybe too much, patience, so that helps.”
