If you’re on a bit of a downer that the Black Ops 4 multiplayer beta has finished then don’t worry, here’s some news that is bound to put a spring back in your step.
A post from the official Call of Duty Twitter page confirmed today that the highly anticipated Blackout beta will be debuting on PS4 on September 10th. Sorry, Xbox One and PC players, we don’t have a confirmed date for you yet, but using our almost non existent detective skills we are assuming that it will debut on those platforms a week later – just as the multiplayer beta did.
Blackout will be Call of Duty’s first ever battle-royale mode (they aren’t jumping on the hype train, honest) and will feature the largest map that Treyarch has ever created. Although little else has been revealed about the mode, todays Twitter post did confirm that players will be able to play the Blackout beta either solo or in groups of two or four.
We were very skeptical about the Blackout mode when it was announced back at E3 in June, but having been pleasantly surprised and pleased by the Black Ops 4 multiplayer beta, we’re looking forward to giving Blackout a try and giving it a fair crack of the whip.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will release on PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 12th.
