The Private Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta is set to kick off tomorrow on PlayStation 4, giving those who’ve pre-ordered a small taste of the game’s multiplayer.
To gain access to the private beta, players on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will need to pre-order the game from select retailers offering those keys. Those who pre-order the game digitally will gain automatic beta entry. PC players just need an active Battle.net account, though pre-orders bag an extra day of beta play.
Here’s what the private beta includes:
- Frequency: A covert listening station deep in the mountainous region of Hunan Province is being used to track strategic targets across the globe.
- Contraband: Surveillance of an international arms smuggling operation has uncovered this shipping hub on a remote, uncharted island off the coast of Colombia.
- Seaside: An anti-government protest in this quaint coastal Spanish town grew out of control and forced a military shutdown.
- Payload: A defensive ICBM launch facility deep in an Icelandic mountain range has been infiltrated by hostile forces attempting to steal a nuclear warhead.
- Team Deathmatch
- Search & Destroy
- We’ve brought the Pick 10 system back to Create-a-Class to give players complete customization over their loadout, and with its return comes a few new changes.
- Load out with Special Issue Equipment that’s designed exclusively for each Specialist without costing a point against Pick 10.
- Gear is an all new slot designed to up the ante on your style of gameplay. Need cheaper Scorestreaks? COMSEC Device. Heal faster? Stim Shot. Gain an advantage in situational awareness? Acoustic Sensor. Only one piece of Gear can be used per loadout, so choose wisely.
- Weapons now have unique sets of attachments, including a new class of powerful attachments called Operator Mods, to really focus each gun on its individual role in combat.
Here’s a full schedule:
- PlayStation 4 (Starts: August 3 at 10am/PT (7pm local/CAT) – Ends: August 6 at 10am/PT (7pm local/CAT))
- PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (Starts: August 10 at 10am/PT (7pm local/CAT) – Ends: August 13 at 10am/PT (7pm local/CAT))
