The PS4 Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta picks back up this weekend, allowing gamers with a Xbox One or PC to start playing the new Call of Duty ahead of the release date. This is how to download the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta.
You can download the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta starting now, if you can retrieve your code. If you already played on PS4, you may need to install an update, but you don’t need to re-download the beta.
You need the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta code to sign up for the beta, and then you will get a token that you enter on your PS4, Xbox One or PC to start the download.
Where to Find Your Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Beta Token
When you pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 you will get a code that you use to sign up for the Black Ops 4 beta. If you bought the game digitally, you won’t get a code or a token, you will simply be able to download the Black Ops 4 beta when it starts.
This is your request for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta token. The token is the code that you enter into your PS4 or Xbox One to officially join the beta and start your download.
You can expect the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta token to arrive by email to the account you registered with. The email will likely come from [email protected] with the code you need. You can also login to Activision and check for your Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta token online. Use this link to look for your token. Depending on your console, the token may not be available yet.
Activision specifically states that the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta tokens will arrive close to 10 AM on the start date for your system.
How to Download the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Beta
You will need the beta token, and then you will be able to start your Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta download.
During the first weekend, only PS4 gamers are able to play, but starting next weekend Xbox One owners will be able to get in on the fun.
Once you have your token, you need to enter it on your PS4 or online in the PlayStation Store. On your PS4, go to the PlayStation Store, choose Redeem Codes and then enter the token emailed to you.
If the token is correct, the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta download should start immediately.
On the Xbox One, go to the Xbox Store and choose Use a code. Enter the code to redeem it and start your download. You can also login to your Xbox account online and redeem the code there. This will likely trigger the download remotely.
You can only use the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beta token on the console that you registered for. You can’t use a Xbox One token to play on PS4 or on PC. There is an open Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC beta on August 11th, so you can download the game from Battle.net without pre-ordering and test out the new Call of Duty on your PC.
