It’s finally over! Treyarch has flipped the switched (off this time) for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta! While a good number (including me!) of people might be sad at the studio not extending the beta, there’s a very good reason for it! Sometime next month, the Black Ops 4 Blackout beta will start!
If you haven’t heard what Blackout is, it’s the new Battle Royale mode made just for Black Ops 4. Given how hot the genre is, it’s a no-brainer to see Call of Duty take a stab at it. If you’re part of the Black Ops 4 multiplayer beta, don’t delete the file just yet! Over on Reddit, Treyarch confirmed that those who downloaded the beta client will only need to download an update in order to play the Black Ops 4 Blackout beta!
Also, quick heads-up that the game file from this weekend will be updated for the upcoming Blackout beta, so no need to download the full game again.
Given how big the beta client was, this is definitely good news for everyone involved. Also, in case you didn’t know, if you reached the beta’s level cap (which was at 40), there’s a surprise waiting for you when the full game is released.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be available for the PS4, Xbox One and PC this October 12.
