Black Ops 4 Blackout beta preload is now available to download on PC. The beta will be live tomorrow, September 15, but those who preordered the game will get one day head start from September 14. However, there is a way to get early access without preordering Black Ops 4.
Blizzard is offering a great opportunity to not only get early access without buying the game but also learn more about Blackout mode. All you need to do is link your Twitch account with Blizzard.net or vice versa, watch Shroud, Summit1G, Ninja, or Tmartn play Black Ops 4 for at least an hour. Once done, you will automatically get access to the beta in your linked account.
An Early Access day on Blizzard Battle.net is available for players who pre-purchase Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 for PC. You can join the action beginning at 10:00 a.m. PT on September 14*. The Blackout PC Open Beta, available to anyone with a Battle.net account, begins at 10:00 a.m. PT on September 15. Pre-load of the Blackout beta will be available starting on Thursday, September 13. The Blackout beta ends at 10:00 a.m. PT on September 17.
On Friday September 14, Battle.net players who tune-in to Ninja, Shroud, Summit1G or TimTheTatman’s twitch.tv stream for an hour between 10:00am PT and 2:00pm PT will get Early access to the PC beta direct to their account. Watch for at least one hour to be eligible, and make sure you link your Battle.net and Twitch.tv accounts beforehand. You can create a twitch.tv account for free.
If you end up liking Black Ops 4 Blackout beta, you can preorder the game through Blizzard’s app on PC. Black Ops 4 is releasing on October 12 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. PlayStation users already have access to the beta since September 10.
