Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer and Blackout betas detailed, dated
14 July 2018, 07:06 | Casey Mitchell
Getting into the multiplayer beta on consoles require pre-ordering the shooter, and those on the PlayStation 4 get to jump in before everyone else.
According to the official announcement, the multiplayer beta starts first on PlayStation 4 on August 3 (with Xbox to follow one week later) and the Blackout beta starts first on PlayStation 4 in September.
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 4 Multiplayer gameplay.
Activision and Treyarch have revealed the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer beta schedule, which will in fact see two different test sessions held: A "multiplayer beta" in August, and then a Blackout battle royale beta in September.
If you're residing in India and want access to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer beta, your best bet would be to pre-order the game digitally. It'll also have Control - the new objective-based mode. Each team has a limited number of lives in this first-to-three wins match-up, so strategic strikes and defensive positioning are key, making for some fast and frenetic gunfights. Normally I'd agree that having two betas for a Call of Duty game is a bit of an overkill, but this year Treyarch is introducing a brand new battle royale mode called Blackout - so it's kind of warranted.
All beta participants get a unique Calling Card, but those who reach max level earn one free Unlock Token to be used in the final game. The Gear slot offers special perks usable across all classes that don't impact the 10 slots in your loadout. The Private Multiplayer Beta will be available first on PlayStation 4. It's set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 12. Is there enough here to make these tests worth the pre-order?
