The update has converted the Private Beta file from the Multiplayer mode to the ‘Blackout’ battle royale mode, with now just three days remaining before the beta goes live on PS4.

This update is be available to all players who had the Private Beta file already installed on their console, as they will now have access to the Blackout beta via the same file. Once the update is installed, no new program or additional codes will be needed to access the Blackout Private Beta.

After the update has been installed, the beta file features a new loading screen and animation when opened. 

This new startup video includes several in-game characters, the logos for Treyarch, Activision, Beenox, and Raven.

There is also a brand new Coming Soon screen, displaying the following message:

“The Blackout Beta begins Monday, September 10th at 10a PST, and runs until Monday, September 17th at 10a PST. Please come back later.”

This message is clearly being displayed on a PS4, as the Xbox One message would have September 14 at the startup date.

The modified menu now also includes several characters, one of which is the Ruin Specialist sitting in the iconic Black Ops style pose.


The Blackout Private Beta goes live on the Playstation 4 on September 10, and on the Xbox One and PC on September 14, with it ending for all platforms on September 17.
