Call of Duty


 

Our first look at the map for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s Blackout battle royale mode was recently posted to the official Call of Duty Twitter.

The posted image gives us a top-down, Google Maps-esque view of the arena, with an aesthetic very reminiscent of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Judging by the size of the buildings in the image, the map does not appear to be as large as many expected. It is “the largest map in Call of Duty history,” but this of course only compares it to maps that have supported, at most, 18 players.

A host of Blackout beta details were confirmed just prior to the map reveal, including the beta’s total player count (80), the types of vehicles we’ll be driving around the map, and the fact that zombies will be messing with us as we fight. The beta’s various start times have also been detailed, with PS4 players getting in on September 10th, and all other platforms getting in on September 14th. The beta will conclude on September 17th and only be accessible to those that have preordered, except for PC players after September 15th, who can try out the beta with no commitment.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is slated to launch October 12th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
