Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Beta Release Date, Download Size, System Requirements, and Everything Else You Need to Know
Highlights
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta is first on PS4
  • The beta for Black Ops 4's battle royale mode is in September
  • You won't need PlayStation Plus to play it

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 release date is October 12. Much like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: World War 2, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will have a beta before its final release. Or as developer Treyarch calls it, a “private beta” as it’s only for those who have pre-ordered the game. It will be interesting to see what Treyarch brings to the table considering that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 lacks the traditional single-player campaign we’ve come to expect, which means the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta is the company’s best chance at selling tentative gamers on a multiplayer-only affair. From Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta start time to what modes will be on offer, here’s what you need to know.

How to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 private beta

In order to play the beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, you’ll need to pre-order the game. We won’t be surprised to see Treyarch or publisher Activision give away keys on Twitter, or to find Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 private beta keys on sites like eBay, but the easiest way to get in is to pre-order the game. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 price is Rs. 4,499 on the PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is $60 (around Rs. 4,117) and is available as a digital download via Battle.net — Activision’s PC game client.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta release date and time

The Call of Duty Black Ops 4 beta starts from August 3 at 10am PT (10:30pm IST) for PS4. It ends on August 6 at 10am PT (10:30pm IST).

If you pre-ordered Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on Xbox One, the beta starts on August 10 at 10am PT (10:30pm IST) and ends on August 13 at 10am PT (10:30pm IST) with PS4 players able to play it during this time as well. PC owners can play the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta from August 10 at 10am PT (10:30pm IST), while general access of open beta to those who have not pre-ordered the game on PC begins from August 11 at 10am PT (10:30pm IST) and ends on August 13 at 10am PT (10:30pm IST).

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta download size

Neither Treyarch nor Activision have commented on the Black Ops 4 beta download size just yet. Though according to reports, it appears that the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta download size is 30GB or thereabouts on PS4

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta preload time

Will Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta progress carry over to the full game?
No. All players will be reset after the beta ends. That said, PS4 owners beta stats of the first beta carry over to the second one. Activision and Treyarch have also stated that there will be rewards for those who play the beta, and those rewards will be available in the final game at the October 12 launch:

Everyone who plays in the Private Beta will receive a Beta Calling Card to use in-game at the game’s launch on October 12.

Players who reach max rank in the Private MP Beta will receive a permanent unlock token to use on whatever item in MP they would like to unlock at the game’s launch on October 12.

Is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout battle royale mode playable in the beta?
The first beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is a multiplayer-only beta. Activision has confirmed, however, that there will be separate Private Blackout Beta coming in September, dates of which are yet to be announced. The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Private Blackout Beta will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but similar to the multiplayer beta, it will be available first on PS4.

Is PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold required for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta?
Past Call of Duty betas did not require PlayStation Plus — Sony’s subscription service that allowed for multiplayer — in order to access it. This should not change. As for Xbox One players, you will need an active Xbox Live Gold membership to play it.
