Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII private multiplayer beta dates announced

Nichole VegaJul 15, 2018

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer beta's got a confirmed date on PlayStation 4. In both cases, the beta will end at 10 am PT/1 pm ET on August 13. With this in mind, Treyarch has announced two betas for the game: one for multiplayer in August, and another for Blackout, the Battle Royale mode, in September.

PlayStation 4 owners will get an early crack at the multiplayer beta, with an exclusive beta running August 3-6.

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. 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. You'll be registered automatically if you buy it digitally but with physical copies the beta key is only available through certain retailers. The latter is an objective-based mode that has teams alternating between attacking and defending two "static objectives". New Specialists will be playable along with returning Specialists Nomad and Prophet.

PC players only need a account to access the multiplayer beta, but those who pre-purchase through will also get a full extra day. Each team has a limited number of lives in this first-to-three wins match-up.

"The PC beta will continue the dialog between us and our players".

Let's be honest though, most players are probably more interested in the Blackout beta.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is due out a little earlier than usual this year.

A beta for Blackout will arrive in September.

All beta participants get a unique Calling Card, but those who reach max level earn one free Unlock Token to be used in the final game.
