Everyone finally got the opportunity to try out Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's multiplayer beta last weekend, which included several maps, modes, character classes, and more, but lacked one of the most anticipated modes: Blackout. We learned that Treyarch's first step into battle royale would get its own beta in September two weeks ago, and now we know exactly when it starts.
The developers have announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout beta will be available on September 10 for those who have pre-ordered the PlayStation 4 version, and although they haven't said anything about when it'll be available on PC and Xbox One yet, we're fairly sure they'll follow the same recipe as last time, which means it'll probably start its second round on September 16.
We still don't know what the maximum amount of players in each match will be either, but at least this announcement confirms that it'll be possible to play solo, in duos, or with three of your friends. This means that we'll have to go on the short glimpses we got from Blackout at the end of the beta trailer, but you can expect to learn more concrete details in the very near future with the mode's beta being less than a month away.
Is Blackout on your radar for Black Ops 4?
