We’ve already had the pleasure to test Black Ops 4’s standard multiplayer ahead of schedule, but now we will also get the chance to try out the new Blackout game mode before the full launch.
Activision has now revealed that Blackout will be getting a beta in September. We have the full scoop on the beta date and supported platforms in this article.
For those unaware, Blackout is COD’s new battle royale mode. It’s not the only AAA game getting one this year. Both Black Ops 4 and Battlefield V will be receiving one.
However, with Blackout’s beta going live in September, Blacks Ops 4 will be the first battle royale mode we get to see in a triple A shooter.
Firstly, if you're a PS4 player, you'll get to experience Blackout early.
PS4 owners that pre-order Blackout will have the beta available from September 10.
Both Xbox One and PC players will be able to get in on the action on September 14.
If you're on PC, you will not need to pre-order Black Ops 4 to try the beta. However, if you don't pre-order, you'll need to wait until September 15.
If you don’t want to pre-order or do not have a PC, you’ll need to wait until October 26. That will be when Black Ops 4 launches for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
This year, Black Ops 4 will not have a singleplayer, but the game will still have a fully fledged zombies campaign, an expansive core COD multiplayer experience and the new Blackout battle royale mode.
