Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 'Blackout' battle royale beta launches on Xbox One and PC

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.

The Blackout beta has been available to PlayStation 4 players for roughly a week, but it's finally accessible to Xbox One and PC owners. The download is quite large so be sure to get that started as soon as possible.

The Blackout beta will end on September 17, at roughly 1 PM EDT. This mode takes place on the largest Call of Duty map ever created so it's unlike anything you've played before.
