With the growing popularity of Battle Royale game play which was introduced to the world by Fortnite and PUBG, popular brands are now boarding the bandwagon with Call of Duty; the newest member to include the mode into its platform. Beta test which was set to be released in August now has another launch date, the game is set to launch two separate beta tests.
According to various reports Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer will schedule two beta releases one of which will be the Multiplayer beta to be launched in August and a second beta test launch to introduce ‘Battle Royale’ in September. They have set to launch on PS4 which will be available for purchase from August 3rd and for PC users, the following week on Battle.net. As the dates of Battle Royale have not been finalized yet and are set to be announced later. The execs are optimistic about it as they think that it would result in bringing the gaming community together and allow them to improve quality.
Beta players would have the unique opportunity to be the first ones to try and for those who reach the highest maximum rank could avail different tokens presented to them once the game goes live in October which is early as compared to the previous versions as they got released in November just to remain ahead of the curve from the releases of Battlefield 5 and Read Dead Redemption 2.
This is the very first time Call of Duty has included the multiplayer mode after fourteen full installments which is obviously risky but it can quickly become promising for the new player which may suggests that COD is going strong with ever growing competition.
This was probably a wise choice for the brand which could eventually allow them to create their own spin given how hot Battle Royale genre is right now.
