Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 developer Treyarch has announced the Blackout Free Trial, which will begin Jan. 17 and continue until Jan. 24.
The trial will allow players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC to try out Call of Duty’s first battle royale game mode, Blackout, completely free. Typically, the full game costs around $60, which includes Multiplayer and Zombies.
Blackout, on the heels of popular battle royale games like Fortnite, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and H1Z1, has carved out a considerable fanbase. With the likes of Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek and Guy “DrDisRespect” Beahm consistently streaming the game, as well as third-party tournaments, Blackout has helped Black Ops 4 stay near the top of Twitch since October.
Treyarch has also been tweaking Blackout since its release, with its latest changes revolving around stacking items in players’ inventories rather than displaying them individually. Weapon camos were also recently added to the game mode, and so were limited-size custom game servers.
Treyarch did not clarify if players who participate in the trial will retain their in-game stats and rewards upon purchasing the full game.
