Players that have pre-ordered the latest Call of Duty game will have access to the Call of Duty Blackout Beta. It's been running on PS4 for a little while now, but Xbox One and PC Blackout betas go live on September 14. In this Call of Duty Blackout Beta Guide, we'll list the Call of Duty Blackout Beta Xbox One and PC Start Times and Dates. We'll also go over how to get a Call of Duty Blackout Beta Code.

For more on Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout, head over to our CoD Blackout Guide. It's got everything we know about the Call of Duty Battle Royale mode so far, like how big the map is going to be, what weapons and vehicles will be used, and some tips on getting started when the game launches.

CoD Blackout Beta Date

Coming off of the back of the most recent Black Ops 4 Beta, Treyarch has announced that there will be a beta for Black Ops 4 Blackout as well. You'll be able to jump in on September 10 when the Black Ops 4 Blackout beta releases, though there are a few restrictions. Most notable in the announcement is the reveal that PS4 players will get the beta first. This is exactly what happened with the beta that just ended as well, with Xbox and PC players having to wait to get in on the action. So when will the PC and Xbox Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta be?

CoD Blackout Xbox One Beta

Just like with the Black Ops 4 Beta that ran last month, the CoD Blackout Beta will be released to PS4 players first. Xbox One users will be getting the Blackout Beta later on in the week, on September 14. It'll be the same experience, just a little later on in the week.

CoD Black Ops 4 Blackout PC Beta

Similarly to the case above, PC players won't be getting the Call of Duty Blackout Beta on day one. Instead, they'll have to wait until September 14 as well, but there is a catch. The September 14 release for Call of Duty Blackout Beta on PC is only for Early Access users, with regular PC players having to wait until September 15 to get started.

    I think that it's rude for the console players when the PC gets an open beta and the consoles don't.

    This may be a really great map for battle royale, but it’s probably going to be the only map available for this game mode. I can see even the most enthusiastic of players becoming bored with this map after awhile. Instead of competing with PUBG, Treyarch should really think about adding more than just one mode of play to the Blackout map, like “capture the flag w/motor vehicles included” as a perfect example. Anyone else agree with me?

    @WilliamFrankLepley3

    more than one map with vehicles and capture the flag?

    at that point it's just Battlefield except you can't respawn.

    Oh btw for everyone else, for any game that only lets people that pre-order play the betas, just preorder the game through amazon, get the code, and then cancel your order. It's that easy and you don't have to wait for a refund because amazon doesn't actually charge you until the game ships to your house.

    I have no plans of buying BO4 but I'm playing the blackout beta already.
