Betas for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will start up next month for the standard multiplayer mode.
Yes, Activision is hopping on the battle royale bandwagon with its own version of the battle royale fad made popular by the likes of Fortnite and PUBG (but mostly Fortnite). Well, we'll finally find out how many people can participate in Blackout, as Treyarch has announced when the betas will begin. The next multiplayer beta starting on August 10 will be available for Xbox One and PC Early Access, too, running until August 13. Of course, you'll need to pre-order Black Ops 4 to get access to the beta. Available on Both platforms, the beta will run from August 10 at 10:00 a.m. PT to August 13 at 10:00 a.m. PT. In September, players will be able to try out Call of Duty's new spin on battle royale, in the beta for a mode Activision and Treyarch are calling Blackout. Additionally, fans will play new Specialists and reacquaint themselves with returning Specialists Nomad and Prophet, who will be bringing with them brand-new gameplay mechanics built for Black Ops IIII.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is due out a little earlier than usual this year.
As mentioned, if you want to dive into Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's multiplayer beta for yourself, then be sure to head over to Amazon now to pre-order a copy of the game to ensure that you can gain access.
At the moment there's no exact dates for the second beta just yet aside from Treyarch stating it would happen in September and on PS4 first.
Let's be honest though, most players are probably more interested in the Blackout beta.
The Private Multiplayer Beta will feature fan-favorite game modes like Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, and Search & Destroy, alongside our brand-new objective-based game mode, Control, which was created to bring out the best of Black Ops IIII Multiplayer gameplay. It's set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 12.
