According to GameInformer, it will take, roughly, five minutes to cross Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout map from its two farthest away points. In other words, some parts of the map may not even take five minutes to cross.

For context, it takes about 6-8 minutes to cross different parts of Fornite's map, which features up to 100 players, 20 more than Blackout's 80-player count.

It's also worth pointing out that Blackout features a more robust vehicle offering than Fortnite, meaning that you can cross its map even quicker than you can cross the map in Fortnite.

Given Call of Duty's heritage of being a fast-paced, action-packed shooter, a slightly smaller map that packs in more action into a more condensed area isn't very surprising. And to be honest, the map still looks pretty darn big (check it out for yourself here).

Nonetheless, some players weren't very pleased by the news:

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is poised to release via PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12. Before then, a beta for the game's aforementioned Blackout mode is poised to arrive next week.

And in case you missed it, yesterday Activision and Treyarch revealed the first gameplay trailer of Blackout, and naturally, it looks pretty intense. You can view it here.
