Treyarch announced on its community blog that "not one, but two betas" are headed our way in anticipation of the next chapter in the Black Ops series. On the PC, anyone with a Battle.net account will be able to play the beta, but those who pre-order the game will get one day of early access to the beta on August 10th. The next multiplayer beta starting on August 10 will be available for Xbox One and PC Early Access, too, running until August 13. If that's too long of a wait to get into the action, the Multiplayer Beta will be coming out in August. In addition to finding out which dates the beta will drop, Black Ops 4 is getting two betas! The Private Blackout Beta will begin first on PlayStation 4 in September.
To gain access to the console Beta, you will need a Private Beta key that will be provided when pre-ordering the game from select retailers or digitally. Exclusive in-game rewards will be given to beta participants, and free unlocks will be awarded to players who reach max rank over the course of the beta.More news: Governor wants new farm rules to fight Lake Erie algae
