Here’s a bit more info about the beta, courtesy of Activision:
Beginning today, the highly-anticipated Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4 Private Multiplayer Beta is live around the world, available first on the PlayStation 4. Players who pre-ordered the game at participating retailers can jump into the first weekend of multiplayer testing, now through 10:00am Pacific time, Monday, August 6. Private Multiplayer Beta participants will experience a sampling of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer mode, which features gritty, grounded combat, along with new levels of customization and tactical gameplay, and a variety of new weaponry, maps and modes for the ultimate Black Ops multiplayer experience. The Private Multiplayer Beta is an important stress test of game systems at scale and serves as a critical development function offering real-time analytics and feedback prior to the final game release worldwide on October 12.
“We built Black Ops 4 for the community, which is why getting the game early into players’ hands through the Beta is so important to us, especially as we hit the home stretch and polish the game for launch,” said Dan Bunting, Co-Studio Head, Treyarch. “The team at the studio is dedicated to delivering the deepest and most rewarding multiplayer we’ve ever made, and we want community feedback to make the game’s launch the best it can be – we can’t wait for fans to jump in and let us know what they think.”
The Multiplayer Beta schedule is split into two weekends as follows:
Multiplayer Beta Weekend 1:
- Friday, August 3 at 10 am PT – Monday, August 6 at 10 am PT (PlayStation 4 only)
Multiplayer Beta Weekend 2:
- Friday, August 10 at 10 am PT – Monday, August 13 at 10 am PT (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC)
- Saturday, August 11, 10 am PT – 10 am PT Monday, August 13 (PC Only Open Beta)
The Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4 Private Multiplayer Beta* features six maps, several game modes including the all-new Control mode, and the opportunity to play as ten different Specialists. The Beta content represents just a portion of the multiplayer content that will be available at launch October 12th. In Black Ops 4, Specialists each have their own unique weapons, equipment and playstyles. Players can be powerful alone, or devastating as a team working together. The Beta also features the return of the iconic Pick 10 system, along with a series of innovations in weapon handling, combat flow and health regeneration. Players will have the opportunity to strategize with their team through tactical teamplay while discovering unique and powerful ways to combine Specialist skills and dominate their opponents.
