Last month, Activision hosed a multiplayer beta for the upcoming shooter Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and it was confirmed that they will be hosting another beta for the battle royale mode ‘Blackout’ in September.
As promised, the beta for Blackout is about to start in few days and the developers have revealed new piece of information related to the game’s player count. The Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout will support up to 80 players per match during the upcoming beta and the number can change when the game launches next month.
According to co-studio head Dan Bunting, they have been testing larger matches with over 100 players in a single game and came to and ideal situation for the beta and will also listen to the feedback of players after the upcoming beta. Dan Bunting spoke to Game Informer earlier today and said;
“So we’re starting with 80 players, but we’ve gone higher than that. Whenever we launch a game as a beta or whatever, that’s the beginning of something. We’re going to actively be participating in the community and taking feedback, making changes and adapting, evolving the game as feedback rolls in.”
The beta is scheduled for September 10th exclusively for PS4 gamers and will be starting for the Xbox One players from September 14th, four days later. Whereas the PC players who pre-ordered the game can enter the beta from September 14th, and for other players, it will be starting the next day, September 15th. While the Blackout beta will be ending on September 17th across all the platforms.
