Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout map

The Call of Duty Twitter account posted an image of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout map, showcasing the layout and the name of several areas. With the fan-favourite 'Nuketown Island' off to one side, other parts of the Blackout map have generic names such as 'Construction Site', 'Estates', 'Train Station', 'Hydro Dam', 'Firing Range', 'Fracking Tower', 'Factory', 'Turbine', 'Array', 'Asylum', 'Cargo Docks', and 'Rivertown'. Some of them have been maps in previous Call of Duty games.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout player count
During the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout beta, the battle royale mode scaled well with developer Treyarch first capping it at 80 players, followed by 88, and finally 100. No official word has been given on the final Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout player count just yet, though we won't be surprised to see it stick to the 100 player cap simply to allow for parity with PUBG and Fortnite.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 frame rate
On PC, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout frame rate will be limited to 120 frames per second (fps) at launch. Treyarch plans to raise it 144fps when 'servers are stable' and eventually remove the frame rate cap. As for the other modes - Zombies and multiplayer, they will have an uncapped frame rate on PC. The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 frame rate for PS4, Xbox One, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X is 60fps in all modes.
