Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's battle royale mode Blackout available now


Picking up items in Black Ops 4 require holding down a particular key, and that gets really annoying at times.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout - What is it?

If you own a PlayStation 4, you get first dibs on the action starting today as the Blackout beta is officially live.

Call of Duty professional players, and the community at large, have taken an immediate liking to Call of Duty's new battle royale, Blackout.

Monday, 10th September - Monday, 17th September.

Furthermore, the private Blackout beta will first be launched on PS4 this September 10 and September 14 on Xbox One.

First, if you participated in the first Black Ops 4 beta, then access to the Blackout beta is automatically granted.

Combining content from every game in the fan favorite Black Ops series for the Call of Duty franchise, the battle royale game mode of Blackout offers a wide variety of experiences that players can engage in. Nevertheless, a day-one patch is required to entry the Battle Royale mode.Will Name of Responsibility's novel Blackout mode be bigger than Fortnite?

You need to pre-order the game in order to gain access. It feels great to finally play Blackout with the rest of the world, and we've only just begun.

It often seems like the time that you need to hold Square is inconsistent.

Though experience won't carry over into the full game, playing the first multiplayer beta gave everyone a "unique, one-of-a-kind calling card" to carry over into the full game. In terms of the battle royale genre, Fortnite still wears the crown, but I have a hard time comparing it to its competitors. However, Blackout exists for all the gamers who want a more realistic alternative.

The Blackout beta will be open exclusively to PS4 players until 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on September 14.

Of course, that's just an estimate, and if you're a PUBG player, that comparison is a little more hard, but expect it to come in closer in size to the new, smaller 4×4 Sanhok map than the other larger arenas - though again, the exact comparison between even PUBG and Fortnite's settings are unclear.
