New Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout trailer delivers battle royal action

All out action is what awaits fans in Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode. And apparently, that includes a slingshot and dynamite with a monkey toy strapped to it.

It’s a Blackout

Blackout drops players into a last-player-standing experience that is uniquely Black Ops. A true celebration of the series, Blackout features fan-favorite characters, weapons and iconic parts of classic maps, all in the largest map in franchise history complete with land, sea and air vehicles.

So what do you think? I’m not much for “battle royale”, or multiplayer at all really, but Blackout does seem pretty cool. It’s kind of like a new school take on the old school deathmatch, just on a massive scale. I don’t think there’s another semi-realistic game out there that features the mode either, with all the ones I can recall being pretty cartoony. So there’s that too.

There’s also a Private Beta coming up for those who would like to try before they buy. That’s set to hit on the 10th, which is this Monday. As usual with these kinds of things, the Beta will be used to provide feedback to Activision and developer Treyarch.

But how d0 you get into the Beta? Well, did you participate in the multiplayer beta? If you did, then you will be able to get into this. From the sounds of things though, that’s the only way to play this time. Not that you’ll have to wait all that long to play the actual game.

That’s set to arrive on consoles and the PC, via Battle.net, on October 12th.
