Most players will be spending plenty of time in season 5 of Fortnite this summer. I know that I was one of those players who just jumped into it. However, the Fortnite craze will slow down when the Call of Duty Black Ops IIII beta is unleashed in August.

The cool thing about this beta is that it will be split into two parts. The first part will be the starting in August on the 3rd. Playstation 4 owners will get the chance to play this game first from the 3rd through the 6th. Then on August 10th Xbox One owners will get the chance to play this beta for three days. Playstation 4 owners will get a second chance to play the beta on this weekend as well. PC players will get the chance to join the beta per the schedule below:

  • PC Beta Early Access (Starts: August 10 at 10am/PT) *PC exclusively on Battle.Net
  • PC Open Beta (Starts: August 11 at 10am/PT – Ends: August 13 at 10am/PT)

Players wil get the chance to play Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Search and Destroy, and the new mode called Control. For more information on all those details about the beta, click this link. If you want to be a part of this beta you will need to redeem a code by pre-ordering the game from your local retailer.

Now the second part of the beya will be the Battle Royale styled Blackout mode. This beta will come out in September. Currently the information on Blackout is sparse and we will have more information when it comes closer to release.
