Activision and publisher's Treyarch studio announced today via Twitter that the Blackout game Royal Map of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will have an open beta test from September 14th. Earlier, the developer announced that the PlayStation 4 beta will take place on September 10th.
Beta tones are important teasers for game publishers. They help to increase interest in preorders and social media. And this is the key to Activision, as Call of Duty stays on its cash cows. Call of Duty: WWII brought in more than $ 1 billion last year after being on the market just seven weeks.
For those preordered on the PC, the beta on the PC will be 10 o'clock on September 14th. It will be available one day later for anyone who has a Battle.net account at. 10th of September 15th. The open beta comes to September 14 for those on Xbox One .
The Blackout map is about 1,500 times larger than the smallest Call of Duty multiplayer map, and it has the first game's generous gameplay in a hint on the success of Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlefields.
Blackout beta comes shortly after the battlefield V beta starts on September 4th, as announced earlier by Electronic Arts. Black Ops 4 debuts on October 12th. It does not want a traditional single player campaign, but it wants multiplayer, three zombies episodes and the Blackout Battle Royal Map.
