Call of Duty Black Ops 4 fans are counting down to the launch of the Blackout beta on Xbox One and PC.

The  Blackout beta made its  for pre-order customers on September 10.

And the wait is almost over for Xbox One and PC pre-order customers, as the Black Ops 4 beta prepares to launch.

Here’s when the Blackout beta releases on Xbox One and PC, and how you can get a code.

The Call of Duty Blackout beta comes to Xbox One and PC pre-order customers on September 14 at 6pm UK time.

As with the PS4 beta, the Blackout test is for pre-order customers only on Xbox One, although PC users can get a free code without pre-ordering the game.

If you’re on PC and want to check out Blackout Battle Royale but don’t have a pre-order, you can try the new game mode from 6pm UK time on September 15. 

The Blackout beta lasts until 6pm BST on September 17, which gives fans the entire weekend to get stuck in.

Will Call of Duty’s new Blackout mode be bigger than Fortnite? Let us know in the poll below…

Anybody with a code for the previous Black Ops 4 closed beta can automatically try the Blackout beta.

Digital pre-order customers will also automatically be entered into the beta, while everybody else should redeem their codes on the Blackout website.

Anybody with the previous Black Ops 4 multiplayer beta installed won’t need to pre-load the beta, although a day one patch is required to play.

And speaking of patches, Activison has already updated the game on PS4, increasing the player count and making it easier to pick up items.

The Blackout map (above) is 1,500 times bigger than the iconic Nuketown map. Locations include Nuketown Island, Train Station, Asylum, Hydro Dam and the Firing Range.

Players will be able to explore the map as classic Black Ops characters on land, in the air and at sea.

Zombies also make an appearance, giving players a chance to loot rare items and weapons at the Asylum.

If you enjoy the Blackout beta, Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will be released in full on October 12.
