The open beta phase for Call of Duty Black Ops 4’s battle royale mode, Blackout, has just been launched and below you can find some 4K screenshots from it on Max settings. Blackout is the mode that most gamers have been waiting for – since the game will not support single-player at all – and features the biggest map in Call of Duty’s history.
In order to capture these screenshots, we used our AMD Radeon RX Vega 64. As always, we’ve included the MSI Afterburner overlay in order to give you an idea of how the game performed in 4K on that particular graphics card.
As we can see, the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 was able to run the game with framerates ranging from 33fps to 65fps. Now we haven’t tested other resolutions but I think it’s safe to say that Black Ops 4 will run fine on a variety of PC configurations (we’ll be sure to thorough test all the different modes when the game releases).
Graphics wise, I wasn’t really impressed by what I saw. The game, for the most part, looks and runs better than PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds but to be honest I was expecting even better visuals. I did notice a lot of low-resolution textures, there is noticeable pop-in of objects and the lighting system does not look as advanced as those in other modern-day shooters. Don’t get me wrong, it does not look bad. However it’s also not a particularly impressive title.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 releases on October 12th!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
