Anyone who couldn’t quite pull the trigger on^( is getting a golden opportunity to see what all the fuss is about. The game’s most notable mode, the Blackout battle royale, is the subject of an upcoming free trial.
Activision is throwing a week-long Blackout trial from January 17 through January 24. It’s available on all platforms — PC, PS4, and Xbox One. This comes a little more than three months after Black Ops 4 originally released.
Of course, this isn’t the full Black Ops 4 experience. It’s without the Zombies mode and the standard Call of Duty multiplayer. It does, however, showcase the most novel addition to Call of Duty in a number of years. Even if it’s just chasing a trend, it does so in an undeniably enjoyable way.
