Black Ops 4’s Download Size Revealed
A download size has been made available for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 in the Xbox Store page. Since Xbox One games usually have a pre-load ahead of its launch, it is normal to have the size of the game posted in the page. So we will be basing the size of the game on this. As posted, the game would require 42.64 GB of free space. This would probably be bigger upon launch and most possibly be the same for PS4 since they usually are about the same size. Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will launch on October 12th.

With Telltale having major layoffs, they are also asking retailers to stop customers from purchasing The Walking Dead: The Final Season as the future is uncertain for the game.

According to the GOG page a post saying a “pause” in the sale of the game had been requested by the developer. The game is still available in the stores but would only link to the demo.
New Total War Warhammer 2 DLC to be Revealed Next Week

It could be many things but it mostly looks like an up-close picture of a map with an X-marks-the-spot. The post has the caption of ” A fantastical announcement is drawing near…” We will know more soon, as the release date seems to be on October 4th.
