Black Ops 4 PS4 Private Multiplayer Beta – Incoming on August 3

Specialists, maps, game modes, and more details straight from Treyarch.

Today, we’re excited to announce that there are two Betas on the Black Ops 4 horizon: a Private Multiplayer Beta in August, as well as a wholly separate Private Blackout Beta in September. PlayStation players will get the first access to the Private Multiplayer Beta starting at 10am PT on August 3, via an exclusive PS4 Beta Weekend.

The team at Treyarch is 100% committed to ensuring the best possible Day One gameplay experience, and the feedback generated from going hands-on will allow us to do just that – which is why we can’t wait to get the game into everyone’s hands.

Available to those who have pre-ordered Black Ops 4 for PS4*, the Private Multiplayer Beta will give the public a hands-on opportunity to enjoy grounded combat, fluid gameplay, our Pick 10 system, new Gear and Loadouts, as well as explosive tactical play. And that’s just scratching the surface! To better prepare you, here is some intel that should come in handy:

Specialists

Specialists bring special equipment and game-changing weapons into the fight. On a single team, each player will choose a specific Specialist:

  • Recon
  • Crash
  • Battery
  • Torque
  • Ruin
  • Seraph
  • Ajax
  • Firebreak
  • Nomad
  • Prophet

Specialist skills can be combined through tactical teamplay for creative and highlight-reel ready gameplay. Discovering unique and powerful ways to use the different Specialists’ abilities and weapons is one of many reasons to test out each of the Specialists during the Beta.

You can still be a Call of Duty badass on your own, but there is a great deal of power that can be unlocked when you combine talents to work as a team.

Modes & Maps

The Private Multiplayer Beta returns several fan-favorite game modes including Team Deathmatch, Hardpoint and Domination. Also, be on the lookout for Search & Destroy – the first time that the mode will be playable in Black Ops 4. The Beta will also offer participants a chance to experience the newest game mode: Control.

In Control, teams are tasked with either attacking or defending two static objectives. Each team has a limited number of lives in this first-to-three wins match-up, so strategic strikes and defensive positioning are a necessity. The clock also factors into gameplay as each round is timed, making for frenetic and fun gunfights.

All the Private Multiplayer Beta game modes will be available on four playable maps:

Frequency: A covert listening station deep in the mountainous region of Hunan Province is being used to track strategic targets across the globe.
Contraband: Surveillance of an international arms smuggling operation has uncovered this shipping hub on a remote, uncharted island off the coast of Colombia.
Seaside: An anti-government protest in this quaint coastal Spanish town grew out of control and forced a military shutdown.
Payload: A defensive ICBM launch facility deep in an Icelandic mountain range has been infiltrated by hostile forces attempting to steal a nuclear warhead.

Along the way, PlayStation players will be treated to two brand new maps, new to the Black Ops 4 Multiplayer rotation: Hacienda and Gridlock.

With the Beta, our intention was to provide a range of maps that support various playstyles: verticality for long-range experts, tight corners and areas for melee and shotgun players, and plenty of open-space and cover for assault weapon veterans.

In Closing…

The benefit of a multiplayer beta is that it gives us the opportunity to assess the game with a broader pool of players and ultimately deliver on the best Day One experience possible. So, thank you for playing and doing your part to help us make Black Ops 4 all it can be!

We can’t wait to see you online!

  • remember when sony promised access to betas if we join PS+ now we have to jump through hoops like a circus animal to gain access to betas. is PS+ worth it?
    the free games are lame, and playing FORTNITE on a different system is more attractive because its not locked like on ps4.

    • JeRzYzFyNeSt

      happens when your competition is trash

    • I agree with maxvtech this is bull but plenty of false promises going on…. When ps4 first came out they promised that the loyal players that had ps3 and would get to play for free.. I’ve called the company they say idk never heard of it.. Bro I have 4 lil brothers we all remember we all have ps4s since they came out. Might as well get Xbox 1 they have a better cheat security
