We’ve got news!

By Foxhound-Pro on August 07, 2018

Any PC gamer with a account can get in to the Open Beta on starting at 10am PT on August 11. Those players who pre-purchased Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 are invited to a full day of Early Access beginning 10am PT on August 10*.

If you haven’t done so, now is the time to sign up for a free account and populate your friends list in preparation for the epic showdowns… Across it’s easy to communicate with your friends and add new acquaintances that you meet in-game.

This Multiplayer Beta showcases six modes—Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Kill Confirmed, Search & Destroy, and Control. You will battle over six distinct maps—the four already seen at various events, plus two new ones, Gridlock and Hacienda—across playlists that showcase all the content that the Specialists revel in.

Participating in the beta helps our development teams here at Treyarch, at Beenox, and at Blizzard gather data that is used to fine-tune the PC experience. Your feedback is not only welcome, but also a key element in ensuring that we collectively deliver the best PC experience possible.

With that in mind we can now share both the Minimum and Recommended system specs for the PC Beta. Please note: these specs relate specifically to the Multiplayer Beta only. As you know, beta means that the game is still in development and we continue to tweak and refine both the gameplay and technical details.

Specs are for the Beta only. You got that, right? Beta only. Specs.
