Drop into Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout for Free During the Blackout Trial

Now through January 24, PS4, Xbox One, and PC owners can play Blackout for free.

by Call of Duty Staff on January 17, 2019

You’ve got new plans for the weekend.

Blackout, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s popular Battle Royale mode, is now free to download and play across all platforms from now until 10 a.m. Pacific on January 24. This limited-time package gives full access to the ultimate fight across the largest map in Call of Duty: Black Ops history.

Got friends that have the full game or are also on the trial? You’ll be able to party up with them for Duos, Quads, and even jump into a new game mode – Down But Not Out – that is live now for PlayStation players and will go live on other platforms to follow.

In Down But Not Out, a Quad is never truly down until the last soldier leaves the fight. Should even a single player on a team survive long enough to reach the next circle collapse, all of that soldier’s team members will wingsuit back into the game and re-join them up until the final circle.

Of course, you can also play Solo to fight against 99 other lone wolves for bragging rights and those sweet, sweet Merits.

Merits and Black Market progress will also carry over into the full game, should you decide to upgrade and get the complete Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 experience.

The Blackout Free Trial is available for download right now on the PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC exclusively on Blizzard Battle.net®, so drop in and join the fight with the Call of Duty community.

We’ll see you online.
