Call of Duty players on the PlayStation 4 have been getting downloadable content 30-days ahead of Xbox and PC players for the past few games in the series, but it looks like this will be changing with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
There will still be a timed exclusivity window for downloadable content on the PlayStation 4 for Black Ops 4 but instead of 30-days, it appears that this period will be shortened to 7-days instead. Posted in a new post-launch content outline for the game, Activision revealed the change.
The Black Ops 4 post-launch content will support the three different multiplayer facets of the game, with new specialists, maps, and seasonal events. To get this content, Black Ops 4 players will need to have the Black Ops Pass, which will be available as a separate purchase in October when the game launches. Not all content will be tied to the Black Ops Pass, however.
Treyarch outlined a number of free updates coming to Black Ops 4 post-launch, which includes a new take on the popular Nuketown map, new Specialists coming as soon as December, map updates and expansion to Blackout, as well as the aforementioned Seasonal Events that bring new game modes and other content.
Activision says that Black Ops 4 will deliver a “new level of community support” for the series.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is set for release on October 12th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
