Watch the first trailer for Black Ops 4’s battle royale mode, Blackout

Call of Duty’s take on the genre is here

Black Ops developer Treyarch is bringing the battle royale genre to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 later this year with Blackout, a franchise-first mode that will introduce the largest multiplayer map Call of Duty players have seen to date.

A new trailer for Blackout released today by Activision and Treyarch shows off what Black Ops 4 players can expect when the game hits PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in October. Players will fight on familiar destinations like Nuketown, Hydro and Cargo, all connected by a massive map that will support dozens of players. As seen in the new trailer, players will be able to fight in air, on sea and on land — and against zombies.

Treyarch announced Blackout mode in May, during the official reveal of Black Ops 4. A first peek at the mode, featuring characters from Call of Duty’s Black Ops and Zombies franchises, dropped in July. And earlier this week, Treyarch offered a first look at Blackout’s map.

A beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode will kick off Sept. 10, first on PS4. The full game will be out Oct. 12.
