Early this morning, Treyarch officially shut down the servers for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s multiplayer beta, and although it did stay up for around 30 minutes more than expected, it left many fans sad. Of course, it’s not all doom and gloom though because the beta is coming back this weekend and the developer has confirmed that it’ll bring with it even more content.
The developer confirmed the news via Reddit late last night, stating that the map Hacienda, which was revealed in the beta trailer but was noticeably absent all weekend, will finally be making it’s way to the game when the beta goes live again on Friday. In addition to that, a brand new mode will also be added, although no details were given, with Treyarch citing that “has been kept under tight wraps.”
Finally, there will also be a new level cap and new double XP events, however, it’s worth noting that none of the progress you make in the beta will make its way to the full game (not that that should really come as a surprise).
