Those wondering about what Scorestreaks are going to be available in the upcoming multiplayer beta of Black Ops 4 can now rest at ease.
Taking to Twitter this weekend, developer Treyarch released a short trailer to confirm some of the rewards for dominating the battlefield.
There are going to be returning Scorestreaks from past installments such as the exploding remote-controlled RC-XD, which first appeared in Black Ops, and the popular air-to-ground Hellstorm Missile, which first appeared in Black Ops II.
The Scorestreaks being introduced for the first team include the Strike Team, which drops two AI-controlled soldiers into the map to take out enemies in a designated area, and an unnamed four-legged robot — believed to be called the Mantis, which can be remotely controlled or left to operate on its own to take out enemies by jumping at them.
There is no word on just how many kills, assists, or points will be needed for the aforementioned Scorestreaks. The Mantis, though, is expected to be one of the more costly to earn. It is also being floated to be incredibly deadly, despite appearing a bit tame in the footage for the time being.
The multiplayer beta will launch first on PlayStation 4 on August 3-6 before returning on August 10 for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The multiplayer beta will then take place on PC on August 10-13 before wrapping up.
All participants in the Beta will receive a unique, one-of-a-kind calling card that they can proudly display. And for every player that achieves max rank in the Beta, they will earn a Permanent Unlock Token to apply to any piece of Create-a-Class content when the game comes out.
There will be five game modes for the participants: Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Control, and Search and Destroy; six maps in total, as well as the new Specialists.
In terms of content being offered, Treyarch is not holding back at all. Those who pre-order a copy are guaranteed entry and can get a pretty good early look before the official release.
Take note that there will also be a multiplayer beta for the battle royale mode called Blackout but that will take place somewhere in September. The developer is not ready to confirm any dates yet.
Black Ops 4 is scheduled for a worldwide release on October 12, 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
