Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 mutiplayer and Blackout betas announced

Emmett Howard | 14 July, 2018, 07:05

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is making some significant changes to the series this year by avoiding a traditional campaign mode and adding a Battle Royale mode, which makes a beta testing phase more appropriate than ever. Formally announced last month, Blackout is, obviously, not the most original idea; but, Activision and Treyarch are taking steps to ensure it has its own unique Call of Duty flair. And yes, you'll need to pre-order the game if you want early access.

Two betas will be held for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and the first is the multiplayer beta. New Specialists will be playable along with returning Specialists Nomad and Prophet. Early Access will start on August 10 at 10:00 a.m. PT while an open beta will begin a day later on August 11.

The Private Multiplayer Beta will feature fan-favorite game modes like Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, and Search and Destroy, alongside a brand-new objective-based game mode, Control, which was created to bring out the best of Black Ops 4 multiplayer gameplay. It'll also have Control - the new objective-based mode. Both will run through August 13 at 10:00 a.m. PT. Unfortunately, Blackout doesn't have a definitive start date or time, but, as stated by Treyarch, "As we get closer to September, we'll share more information about what you can expect from the Private Blackout Beta, first on PS4 - for now, we wanted you to know that it was on the way". With Activision having a marketing tie-up with Sony for the game, the betas will be on PS4 first and other platforms later. We are so excited to be able to share that fun with you in September. Instead of a solitary beta event as is usually the case with Call of Duty games, there will be two betas. It's set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 12.
