Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will reportedly be available to play at E3 for a select number of lucky fans and community members that received invitations.
Set to release on October 12th, 2018, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has generated a substantial amount of buzz across the gaming world ever since it was first-revealed by Treyarch as the next installation into the storied franchise.
Community members were able to get the first look at content included in BO4 during a ‘Community Reveal Event’ in Los Angeles, California on May 17th, which included information on Multiplayer, Zombies, the all-new ‘Battle Royale’ mode, and more.
Although, only a select handful of prominent individuals from around the community were invited to the event and had the ability to play Black Ops 4 for the first time.
It appears that they have different plans for E3, however, with CharlieINTEL reporting that Activision has potentially been sending out ‘randomized’ email invites to community members for them to play BO4 at the convention.
The invite includes a free three-day pass, opportunity to play the title, and the chance to meet developers at a VIP after-party.

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, also known as ‘E3,’ will take place between June 12th and June 14th in Los Angeles, California.
Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.
Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.
Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.
From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.
How to watch the Black Ops 2 Invitational
The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups went live at 3PM EST (12PM PT) and the broadcast will likely run for most of the day.
As per usual, it’s all expected to be featured on Hitch’s own Twitch stream which we’ve embedded below. A majority of the players and creators will likely be sharing their own perspectives throughout the event as well.
Black Ops 2 Invitational teams & bracket
Some squads feature some of the most successful Call of Duty veterans while others consist of popular streamers. Regardless, every team is stacked with FPS talent so expect some close matchups.
Standing out among the eight rosters is a true throwback. The 2014 world championship team of Crimsix, Karma, TeePee, and ACHES, will be reuniting. Formerly representing Complexity and then Evil Geniuses, these four players haven’t been on the same team since 2014.
