Call of Duty fans having fun with Black Ops 4’s Blackout beta can play for a few more hours as the studio has moved the Blackout beta end time to 12 noon PDT instead of 10 a.m. PDT! In addition to that, the player count has now been increased from 88 players, to 100 players!
The Blightfather event that rolled out yesterday has also been pulled, though I think most players will be OK with that given the Blackout beta extended hours, and the increased player count cap. Check out Treyarch’s complete message to players (via Reddit):
Let’s end the Blackout Beta with a bang, shall we?
We’re extending the Blackout Beta through 12PM PST today and will be pushing the system in new ways. We are raising the maximum player count to 100 players on all platforms, so get in there and tear it up while you can!
Thanks again for your constant feedback throughout the week. We’ve heard your requests, bug reports, concerns, and encouragement during this process, and we’ll be following up later today with a more comprehensive look at what you’ve told us and how we’ll be addressing key topics for launch.
We’ve made the following updates across the Beta today (Global):
- Raised maximum player count to up to 100 players per match (all platforms)
- Removed Blightfather event (all playlists)
Let’s get out there and make it count.
