Call of Duty’s Blackout battle royale beta mode out on 10 September

Posted on: Aug 17, 2018 By smartlaunch in News and trends,

Developer Treyarch has confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will have a battle royale mode similar to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite and the prerelease beta test will go live for players to get a taste of that action. The mode, called Blackout, will enter a private beta on PlayStation 4 starting on 10 September.

Players will have the option to go into matches alone or as teams of two or four and the Blackout private beta will come to other platforms as well at a later date. To get into the private beta, the game needs to be preordered.

Blackout should be a crucial addition to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. For the first time in the history of the franchise, a new release won’t have a single-player campaign. Treyarch wants to make up for that with extra Zombies modes and the popular last-player-standing mode that has helped Fortnite and PUBG succeed. There is still no information about map sizes, vehicles, or player count for Blackout, so the mode is wrapped in mystery. But the answers should be there in about a month’s time…
