Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta Updated With New Mode

Treyarch has added a new mode to the Black Ops 4 beta with a new update. The developer updated the game with a new mode called “Fast Collapse.” The mode is pretty simple but will boost enemy encounters and will end the game faster than usual.

In the new mode, the circle will move faster than usual which means players will have to move to the safe zone sooner than they usually would. Naturally, the more you move the more chances of engagement with other players.

Remaining outside the circle means you will be dead but what would be even more interesting is if the circle does more damage in addition to moving quicker. Black Ops 4 Blackout beta update is now live so boot up your client to enjoy the new mode.

The addition of “Fast Collapse” also indicates that Treyarch might add more modes to the battle royale section when the game comes out. It would be similar to PUBG where new modes and community events are added every now and then to avoid stagnancy.

Black Ops 4 Blackout beta update is available on the PS4 version which is obvious since this is the only platform this game is available on right now. Xbox One and PC players will have to wait till September 15 to access the beta.
