We’re giving away codes for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta

Plant your boots firmly on the ground, stick your tongue firmly through your cheek, and get ready for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta.

Beginning on August 3 (for precise times check our page on the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta start times), the beta gives you access to five game modes across six maps.

You won’t be able to try the new battle royale mode – a separate beta for that is coming later – but you’ll be able to test ten of the game’s Specialists and see who you gel with best.

While you can still choose your loadout, Black Ops 4 takes inspiration from games such as Overwatch and Rainbow Six Siege, giving each soldier you control their own unique skills, making matches feel more tactical.

It’s the biggest departure for the series since Modern Warfare changed the script. To try it out for yourself, enter our raffle draw below.

If you are one of the lucky 50, you’ll be able to pre-load from 6pm BST tomorrow, August 2. The competition ends and winners will be announced tomorrow at midday.
