Treyarch releases the PC system requirements for Call of Duty Black ops 4's Blackout beta

The PC beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's highly anticipated "Blackout" Battle Royale mode will begin on September 15th, and be available to anyone with a Battle.net account, with the beta releasing a day early for those who have pre-ordered the PC version of the game. 

Access to the beta will be ended on September 17th at 1 PM ET, and 10 AM PT, which translates to 6 PM UK time, giving PC gamers access to the beta for two days, three if you pre-ordered the full game.   

In Call of Duty's "Blackout" Battle Royale mode, 80 players will be dropped into a single map, with the game offering solo, duo and quad matchmaking to allow for both solo and team play. From there, players much survive within a contracting map, scavenge for weapons and defeat both AI opponents and opposing players.

Watched DrDisrespect's stream yesterday. Now I can't wait until friday as this seems to be THE PUBG killer everyone was waiting for. I'm glad I can also finally uninstall Fortnite...


Will you peeps at TTL towers also be online during the weekend for a round or two?Quote

Not sure why you think everyone was hoping it would be kill PUBG.. I've literally seen and heard 0 of that. Fortnite has long over taken PUBG.. if anything it's the Fortnite killer which I doubt. This blackout mode is just going to be in my opinion a pure cash grab at the BR market. If it's anything like the normal COD it'll suck. The way they handle bullet physics (which is non-existent) all you have to do at any range is have your crosshair over an enemy and it's automatically a hit at any range. Can't even imagine how many times you'll die at over 500 meters from a person with a red-dot.Quote

To me, Fortnite is quite a different game. I personally hate it and especially the aspects of building as well as the rarity system annoys me to hell. Also, I'd like to have more inventory space. So, people who like PUBG (including me) and don't like its bugfests (not really including me) and dislike Fortnite were waiting for something new. Also, Blackout is the first real AAA entry into the BR scene and your last statement shows that you haven't checked it out. In Blackout, physics are there. You have to lead enemies. Bullets don't have much drop as it seems, but it's definitely not the regular MP gameplay that you know and seem to hate.
Yesterday, DrDisrespect's chat was overcrowded with "RIP PUBG", soooo... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯Quote

I am looking forward to the beta for "Blackout" after seeing some videos it looks so much better than PUBG, and as I don't like the building aspect of Fortnite which is why I don't play it, then it gives PUBG some competition for me.

The bullet physics seem like they are going the same way as PUBG so you have to lead shot's etc but until I play it I am not 100% sure but, from everything I have seen it does look that way.

I am hoping the looting menu is better on the pc than it on the consoles, as the system looks awkward to use and annoying.

The multiplayer of the game though, felt really smooth and really good better than I was expecting which was a nice surprise for me given the state of recent COD games.Quote
