Did anyone take this?

Has the beta closed yet? If not, what are the dates for it?

I’m interested because I’ve read comments that this leans more towards Rainbow Six: Siege/PUBG tactical gameplay and the TTK has been increased. Some people were just crying like babies about the TTK but every bit of footage I’ve seen looks like more of the same.


Beta starts again this evening and runs for the weekend - if the code has not been taken you go to the Activision website and put it in and it will give you a steam / xbo / ps4 download key to grab the demo.

I got one for preordering at Amazon (which i got last week so played it at the weekend) , and got this one from the O2 app

The only modes available last week were very COD like - although no HC modes so you still have the situation where you pump bullets into them and they turn round and one shot you

Movement is still fairly fluid but no jetpacks - the grappling hook lets you move quickly but its very limited in when you can use it.

I'd say TTK (Time To Kill) is slightly higher than previous games but spawn camping is still there and one of the specialists can drop a spawn beacon - if you choose to spawn at that point then expect the enemy to be waiting for you.

Until you unlock create a class (level 6) the initial few classes and weapon setups are crap and I really did not feel like i could do very much until I hit that point - then getting a specific gun and starting to level it up to unlock sights / rapid fire / grips makes the run and gun game a lot better.

Just an FYI, I’ve took the first code and, yes, it was a ballache to login and get a code at all.

Many thanks to Zaphod! :kiss:

I’m actually super-excited to try to BR mode tomorrow. Hey, Zaphod, I’m trying to get Myp to download the beta but this code isn’t working (and it’s not showing as being redeemed either - just it doesn’t recognise it). Is it still possible for you to check whether it’s extant?

Also, I should be on this tomorrow for BR if you want to play duos or, if we can get a third, squads!

Wow, erm, it’s kinda good. Smooth as silk at 60FPS, plays like a CoD without the ridiculous aim assist and also like a PUBG without the jank. Colour me impressed so far.

The vehicles are pretty good too. There’s a helicopter in here (not that I could find one)!

Anyone want to play the Battle Royale beta on PS4?

Team up with me and Myp (if you want).

Well, I got my chicken dinner on the Blackout mode. That’ll save me buying it on release. Take that Activision.

Got dragged through it by your superior teammate again! Was hoping it was a solo effort.

Gerroutta here. I got more kills and we both went down once.

I do like this new Call of Duty though, a lot. There’s RC cars for scanning the area, trip mines, moveable barriers to deploy, hiding in the grass, ATVs, trucks, boats, helicopters, healing on the move, massive areas to explore etc etc. There’s loads crammed in here. The movement is great, it’s smooth, feels nice to play and so on.

It’s not just a tacked on BR mode. It feels fleshed out and new and funky.

It felt like CoD rips off PUBG to me. :shrug:

Meh. Like Fortnight and the other BR modes that other games now have? If it’s done well and differently enough then I’ve no problem with it. I consider this BR mode to be very good and well worth a go.

Fortnite at least tries to differentiate itself by being cartoony and less serious. This is just exactly what I expected it to be. A po-faced CoD does PUBG. There's nothing original about it.

Po-faced? It has zombies, monkey bombs, other daft weapons and the vehicles handle like Halo.

Sorry - Satsuma - on holiday when this came out - i did get a few quick matches on Sunday night when i came back but that was it - and by that point i was a total newb and everyone else seemed to know exactly what they were doing :-)

Will give the mode more of a try when the full game comes out.

Damn shame, it was bloody enjoyable. Plus I got me another chicken dinner.

And I get chased by a monster.

I’ve already got a couple of chicken dinners but I really liked it and would probably pick it up if there were plans for more & free maps for the BR mode but I guess any additional content will be hidden behind a £50 season pass (or however much it’s going for. Something daft no doubt).
