Before you place your Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 pre-order, you’ll want to know where you can pickup the game at a midnight Black Ops 4 release date event. We know several options that you can use to get the game as soon as physically, and digitally, possible. Here’s what’s confirmed and what you can count on.
Midnight release date events aren’t as big as they used to be with digital downloads that you can pre-load and play as soon as the clock hits 12:01 AM, or 9:01 PM Pacific, but they are still a good option for many gamers.
We know that Best Buy, Xbox and PlayStation all plan midnight release date events, but not every store will be open at midnight. If you are on the west coast, more stores will be open since the release is at 9:01 PM Pacific on October 11th, instead of at midnight.
You can head to most of these and still get your choice of the special Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 editions, even the new Mystery Box at Best Buy. You can still get the best Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 deals and pickup at midnight.
Midnight Black Ops 4 Release Date Locations
Best Buy and GameStop are the best locations to go for Black Ops 4 midnight release date events. Best Buy confirmed a number of store locations that are open for special late night releases. GameStop does not list a specific event yet, but most retail locations open up for midnight releases on games of this caliber.
You can also expect to go to Walmart and Target to pick up Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at midnight, but these locations may not be prepared with the game on store shelves or staff to hand you the game without looking for it in the back or in a box.
Best Buy lists the locations that open at midnight Eastern, 9:01 PM Pacific, so you can plan ahead. Not every store will open late for the release, especially in areas outside of major cities. Check here to see if your Best Buy location will be open.
If you plan to go to a midnight release event you should pre-order to speed up the process. If you don’t have a pre-order you can expect to wait until after all pre-orders are handled. Ask your local GameStop to confirm that they will be open. Pay attention to the time, since it is not a midnight release outside of the Eastern time zone.
Another option is to buy Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 from the Xbox Store, PlayStation Store or Battle.net. If you go this route you can pre-load the game and play right at midnight. This is the best way to play right at midnight, but be careful if you buy the digital game from another retailer. If you buy at Best Buy, Amazon or GameStop, you may not get your code in time to pre-load and play early.
