The next entry in Activision's renowned shooter franchise, Call of Duty, has been officially unveiled ahead of its scheduled release this fall. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will revive the fan-favorite series, fully embracing its multiplayer success, while exploring new online modes such as "Zombies". A battle royale mode called "Blackout" is also part of the package.
August 22, 2018: The Blackout beta will start on Xbox One on September 14.
While details on the mode are unclear, we do know that you can either play alone, as a team or two, or as a team of four. The map is also supposed to be one of the largest in Call of Duty history. From a teaser released on Twitter, it seems like PlayStation 4 owners will be able to try out the Blackout beta starting September 10, 2018.
It's unclear when the test will hit Xbox One and PC, but we're expecting the two platforms to get it a week later.
Hopefully Black Ops 4 will be a polished and balanced experience on all platforms when it releases in a few months. You can currently preorder Black Ops 4, starting at $59.99. The game is scheduled to launch on October 12, with Xbox One X enhancements in tow.
