Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Beta Next Month

Activision and Treyarch announce two different beta tests on three different platforms will be part of the run-up to the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on October 12th. They are planning a multiplayer beta for the shooter sequel for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 next month, and a test of their Blackout battle royale mode in September. There's a post from Activision Community with the dates, saying the PC beta will be open to anyone with a account from August 11-13, while customers who preorder the game will get an day's headstart on August 10th. This confirms a previous report that the PC beta would not require a pre-purchase. As for the Blackout beta, they promise more details near the end of summer. There's also a post about this on the Treyarch Blog where they go into more detail about the game, including a discussion of specifics about the PC beta:

Working in partnership with Beenox and Blizzard, the PC Multiplayer Beta will be exclusive to Battle.Net.

“The PC beta will continue the dialog between us and our players. Every piece of feedback helps us to deliver the most balanced, most fun and most polished Call of Duty you have ever played on PC,” said Co-Studio Head, Mark Gordon. “Through our partnerships with Beenox for development and with Blizzard providing us with infrastructure, tools and network – we are bringing a custom experience to PC.”

As previously reported by @TreyarchPC, getting the game into the hands of players provides the studio team the chance to communicate directly with the players: player data helps inform development decisions around performance, the process of fine-tuning specs, and the optimization of features. And this is even more important given the amount of customization developed to accommodate the widest range of hardware possible.
