The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta ends today, but don’t be so quick to delete the beta from your consoles just yet, it’ll be updated in September for the Blackout beta.
A separate Blackout beta was announced for September and according to Activision you won't need a new beta launcher. The same files for the multiplayer beta will be updated for the Blackout beta next month.
Thanks for playing the Black Ops 4 Multiplayer Beta! We recommend not deleting the Beta – the file will be updated in September for the Blackout Beta.— Activision Support (@ATVIAssist) August 13, 2018
Last weekend was the public beta for Black Ops 4 following the exclusive early beta for PlayStation 4 owners. The multiplayer beta included five multiplayer modes, the new heist mode, four playlists, and some good but broken dogs. It did not however include Blackout which is Black Ops 4's upcoming battle royale mode.
So, there's a little PSA for you so you won't deal with any extra download and install times in a few weeks. Especially since the Black Ops 4 beta size is kind of big at 18+GB, so that's a good chunk of download time right there.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is Treyarch's newest Call of Duty game, taking a more class-based approach to the series. There will be no single-player campaign, but Treyarch is focusing on replayable multiplayer modes and a robust zombie mode to make up for it.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is coming out on October 12 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via battle.net. For more on Black Ops 4 including release details, available modes, and previews check out our Black Ops 4 guide.
