Will you be playing the Black Ops 4 beta?

Getting into the multiplayer beta on consoles require pre-ordering the shooter, and those on the PlayStation 4 get to jump in before everyone else. The PC open beta starts the next day, August 11, at 10:00 PT, and runs through August 13th, 10:00 PT. Combine these changes with customizable Operator Mods for each weapon, and you've got plenty of new strategies to experiment with.

For the private multiplayer beta, players will fight through six maps. Additionally, the beta will see a mix of new and returning Specialists, such as Nomad and Prophet. Each team has a limited number of lives in this first-to-three wins match-up, so strategic strikes and defensive positioning are key, making for some fast and frenetic gunfights. For Xbox One and PC players, the private beta will kick off the following weekend. PC players who pre-order can start playing the "early access" beta August 10th, starting at 10:00 PT.

According to the official announcement, the multiplayer beta starts first on PlayStation 4 on August 3 (with Xbox to follow one week later) and the Blackout beta starts first on PlayStation 4 in September. It will be held first on PS4, with more details to come close to the end of summer.
