Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer and Blackout betas detailed, dated

This year's Call of Duty is a bit special, with Activision announcing earlier this year that Black Ops 4 will arrive without a single-player campaign, and will instead include a battle royale mode named Blackout. More details for this private beta will be given later this Summer.

Will you be giving the beta a shot?

As a private beta, it will only be accessible by those who have pre-ordered Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, with download codes being sent out for both digital and physical pre-orders.

The Private Multiplayer Beta will feature six maps, two of which will be debuting for the first time. Additionally, the beta will see a mix of new and returning Specialists, such as Nomad and Prophet.

The Private Multiplayer Beta will feature fan-favorite game modes like Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, and Search and Destroy, alongside a brand-new objective-based game mode, Control, which was created to bring out the best of Black Ops 4 multiplayer gameplay. Each team has a limited number of lives in this first-to-three wins match-up, so strategic strikes and defensive positioning are key, making for some fast and frenetic gunfights. An additional beta session will take place the following weekend for all platforms-PS4, Xbox One, and PC-although the PC test will only be accessible through the Battle.net service. Meanwhile, PC players who pre-order will get a one day head start on the open beta.

We don't have an exact date yet for the private beta, but we do know it's on the way after the multiplayer fans get their run testing the servers. The developer revealed that it will host two separate tests for the shooter-one for multiplayer, the other for the battle royale-style Blackout mode-ahead of the game's launch, with the first scheduled to kick off next month. We are so excited to be able to share that fun with you in September.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC Oct.12.
