All platforms can now drop in! The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Private Beta is now live on Xbox One and PC, alongside PlayStation 4!
The servers are up, and players can now get their hands on experience with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s brand new battle royale mode before the October 12 launch.
How to Get Access:
If you had access to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 MP Beta, the Blackout Beta is accessible through the same file on your console. An update released last week that changed the beta from an MP Beta to the Blackout beta, so all players with the file can now get online. No additional codes are needed.
If you did not have access to MP Beta, players who preordered Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 digitally, the beta is now available for download directly on the PlayStation 4/Xbox One store. Search for ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Private Beta’ on the store to find it and download now. Players who preordered Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at a retailer, make sure you redeemed the code you received from the retailer at callofduty.com/beta. Activision has sent out emails with beta download codes, which you need to redeem on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One store — check your emails!
For PC players, the Blackout Beta is now live in Early Access, allowing those who pre-purchased Black Ops 4 on Battle.net or at a retailer for PC can now play the Blackout Beta. If you pre-purchased directly on Battle.net, visit the Battle Net launcher now to launch the Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta. If you pre-ordered at a retailer, ensure you redeemed a code on Call of Duty website. Use the code on the Call of Duty website (or check your emails) to get early access! The PC Open Beta begins Sept. 15 at 10AM PT.
The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta ends on Monday, September 17 at 10AM PT!

COD 2020 Teasers: Black Ops 4 Summit map, Treyarch social profile
As we opened our new crates that Activision sent through, Black Ops 4’s Summit map got an update.
The screens in the center of the map in Black Ops 4 turned on which seem to match to what some of our slides show:
There’s also a look at clocks of 4 out of the 5 locations that some of us got as part of the slides to see:
These changes do appear to be new, especially the screens with the targets on them. Analyzing older images of the maps showcase that the screens were not showing the same thing.
In addition, Treyarch has updated their cover photo on social channels.
It’s getting cold out there…
Gameplay from Black Ops 4’s canceled campaign mode revealed
A user on Reddit, r/BlackOps4, has shared what appears to be the very first footage of gameplay from the canceled campaign mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which released in October 2018, was the first Call of Duty game to not have a traditional campaign mode, instead opting to have three online-based modes.
Treyarch insisted throughout the year that they really didn’t have plans for a campaign and were focusing on an online connected experience for Black Ops 4, but many reports and sources described the campaign as being too ambitious and canceled because of issues with development.
On Reddit, a user has shared about two minutes of alpha footage of the gameplay of Black Ops 4’s campaign. The campaign, in alpha-state footage (meaning its not complete), had a very similar HUD to the MP experience of Black Ops 4. The user claims that the campaign and MP were supposed to be connected, and that’s why the HUD is so similar.
The gameplay starts by showing a message of “FIND THE AQUILUS CEO.”
Here’s the gameplay footage:
The user who posted this has not said where they got this gameplay footage as of now. He said he only has this footage, alongside an augmented footage of the engine of BO4, which he is not releasing at this time.
