Black Ops 4 Blackout is Free2Play in April – all info. In Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 all interested parties have the opportunity to test the in-house Battle Royale mode blackout for a month for free – including the new card Alcatraz.
What’s up with free games? As part of the launch trailer for the new Alcatraz blackout card, Treyarch recently announced a free month in the Battle Royale of Black Ops 4.
Now all interested players have the opportunity in April to test the blackout mode freely without having to buy the paid basic game – even the new blackout card Alcatraz can be tried out in this course.
When should it start? The free trial started on April 2nd at 19:00. Treyarch has tweeted that blackout can now be played on all platforms for free.
This special offer runs until April 30th. That’s the longest trial period at Black Ops 4 so far. In January, Blackout could be tested for a week for free.
On which platforms can you try blackout? Interested players can test Battle Royale mode on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Are there restrictions? During the test phase, players should be able to experience everything that blackout mode has to offer. The developers of Treyarch have explained this in a tweet. So there will be no restrictions.
However, playing requires a valid Xbox Live membership on the Xbox One or an active PS Plus subscription on the PS4.
For the new blackout card Alcatraz PC and Xbox players get access only on 9 April. PS4 players can already make the new map unsafe on April 2nd.
How to download the free version? Treyarch has tweeted that the trial phase has already begun on all platforms. On the PS4, the download of the free-trial version is already available.
Getting in is free — breaking out is the hard part.

Go to the PlayStation Store and look for Black Ops 4. There you will find “Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4 – Blackout Free”. You then have to download this version. Alternatively, we have linked the link in the PS Store for you: Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4 – Free Trial
On the PC and the Xbox One, the download still does not seem to be active, but it should appear within the next hour (at 19:45). It seems to be a regional delay. Check the Microsoft Store and the Blizzard app regularly, so the download should be live soon.
Who is worth the free trial on Black Ops 4 Blackout? Although Blackout is in principle an independent Battle Royale mode – you can play it only in conjunction with the paid game Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
So if you just want to get a taste of blackout and get your own idea of a potential purchase, you have to pay. With the free trial month April, however, all interested parties now have the opportunity to put the mode through its paces.
The free month is just right for you, though

What is the blackout mode anyway? Blackout is Black Ops 4’s in-house Battle Royale mode. In typical Battle Royale style, up to 100 players compete in single or team modes on two different maps.
