More information has potentially been revealed regarding the Beta for the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Although Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has become one of the most hyped games of 2018, Treyarch has maintained a level of secrecy for certain aspects of the title prior to its release.

One feature that raises a collection of questions from community members is that of the Private Multiplayer Beta which will be available to those that pre-order the game, however, not much is known at the time of writing regarding logistics.

On July 12th, the PlayStation Germany Twitter account released a teaser image for Black Ops 4 that included the tagline of “PlayStation Exclusive. Pre-order and get access to the Private Beta. First on PS4™.”

Due to a partnership between Activision and PlayStation since the release of Black Ops III in 2015, PS4 users have typically received in-game content such as DLC packs, Private Betas, and other additions prior to those on the Xbox One, PC, or any other platform.

As of writing, there has been no official statement regarding when the BO4 Private Beta will take place, although, rumors have suggested that it may be available to play in August. Yet, this remains unconfirmed.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is set to release worldwide on Friday, October 12th.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
