The first looks at the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Beta startup menu and music have been revealed on social media.

Although the Beta on the PS4 is scheduled to go live on August 3, some players have already managed to get access to download codes and have pre-loaded the game on their consoles.

Here is the first look at the Beta’s startup menu theme and music, courtesy of French YouTuber ‘Djackby9,’ who posted this on his Twitter page.

The YouTuber also posted an image of the download screen for the Beta, showing that the file size was 18.1 GB.

However, it appears that the size of the download file for the Beta varies across different platforms and regions as another French YouTuber named ‘ZombiesFaktory’ posted an image showing it to be 31GB.

The Black Ops 4 Beta is of course private, meaning that players will need a download code in order to have access.

Those who have redeemed their Beta code should start receiving a download token in their emails soon and can start pre-loading the game on their consoles, although the servers for the PS4 will not go live until August 3 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.

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.

The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups will be going 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.
