The multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is done and dusted, but beta season is still in full swing, with the Blackout battle royale mode next up in September.
This is Call of Duty's first foray into the battle royale genre, and so there is a lot of high expectations from fans in anticipation of Blackout, which is still somewhat shrouded in mystery.
Even the release date for the beta itself hasn't been officially, announced, but there are a few clues which should narrow it down and players can start looking forward to getting their first royale win in CoD.
The first thing to note is that you shouldn't delete the multiplayer beta application from your PS4 or Xbox One, as this same file will be updated and used again for the Blackout beta.
On August 14, Treyarch confirmed the start of the beta would be September 10, first on PlayStation 4, with other platforms to follow.
For the multiplayer beta, PlayStation 4 had it a weekend early, but since the battle royale beta is launching on a Monday, it is unclear how long it will be exclusive to the Sony platform.
They also confirm in the announcement that solos, duos and 'quads' will be available in the beta.
Finally, while we know very little officially about what the battle royale mode Blackout will entail, a Redditor did leak a lot of features which seem fairly realistic as what we could expect. So this is what we have to go on at this stage.
This is not official, and was posted back on July 17, so things could have changed between then and the beta start.
