PC gamers have long been a tough nut to crack for the Call of Duty series, surprising for a franchise that began life on the platform. With Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Activision and Treyarch are no doubt hoping they can give the multiplayer more legs, beginning with the switch to Blizzard’s for the first time. No more Steam for Call of Duty and Treyarch is preparing for the big move with a PC beta for COD BLOPS 4 in August.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII PC open beta will kick off on August 11th through and run through until August 13th.

“The PC beta will continue the dialog between us and our players,” said Mark Gordon, co-studio head at Treyarch. “Every piece of feedback helps us to deliver the most balanced, most fun and most polished Call of Duty you have ever played on PC. Through our partnerships with Beenox for development and with Blizzard providing us with infrastructure, tools and network – we are bringing a custom experience to PC.”

The beta test will be one of the largest yet in terms of content. “This is an exciting opportunity for us at Treyarch because – not only are we putting more content into players’ hands earlier than ever before – we get to break new ground by hosting two separate Beta experiences,” said the other co-studio head Dan Bunting.

Included in the beta will be six playable maps as well as Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Search & Destroy and Control game modes. Control is a new one and features teams alternating between attack and defense over two static objectives. That probably sounds familiar to Counter-Strike fans.

Console players will also be able to get in on the action. PlayStation 4 is first up with a week’s head-start over Xbox One and PC. That’s those marketing dollars coming into play.
