Activision has sent through word that as of today through until April 30, the Blackout Battle Royale mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is free, and features both the original map as well as the recently-revealed Alcatraz map, available today for PS4 players with other platforms made to wait.
Still, the free-to-play model here is available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One as of now (sans Alcatraz for PC and Xbox for now), and is likely in response to Battlefield V's Firestorm recent drop. Here's the official skinny:
Blackout Free Access features all the intense action from Black Ops 4’s battle royale game mode, with both the original Blackout map that brings together characters, locations, weapons and gear from across the series, all in the biggest map in franchise history, as well as the brand-new Alcatraz map (Alcatraz map live today on PS4 with other platforms to follow).
During the Free Access window, fans will be matchmade with all Blackout players, and be able to play in solos, duos and quads. All progression made will be saved and transferred if players choose to upgrade to a full version of the game.
Watch a trailer for all of the above, embedded below.
