Call of Duty Black Ops 4’s battle royale mode, Blackout, will be free to play on January 17th

Activision and Treyarch have announced that the battle royale mode for Call of Duty Black Ops 4, Blackout, will be free to play on January 17th. This basically means that until January 24th, everyone will be able to download and play it.

In Blackout, players will fight through classic Black Ops locales while playing as some of their favorite characters from across the series. Players will drop into the action in a wing suit, and take command of land, sea and air vehicles in this last-player-standing experience celebrating the Black Ops series in an unprecedented way, all on the biggest map in Call of Duty franchise history.

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout was a welcome addition and was able to capitalize on the success of PUBG and Fortnite. We’ve seen in the past other developers attempting to captivate players via their own battle royale modes but Black Ops 4 is the first big triple-A games that has managed to come close to PUBG (though there is still only one map for Blackout).

But anyway, the important thing is that you will be able to play Blackout for free and see for yourselves whether it is something that could interest you or not!
