Starting later today, Blackout will become free-to-play. As a core service of Activision lineup, the free-to-play period will be present for the whole month. From April 2, to April 30, many people who never tried Blackout can test its skills and possibilities compared to other Battle Royales. With the release of the new map, Alcatraz, this could be a perfect moment for such a promotion.
Alcatraz will be available today starting on PS4. The other platforms are bound to receive this map as an update a bit later. Below you can experience Alcatraz in video material.
It is certainly quite a big move, but we do believe it should’ve been done a bit earlier. Everyone knows that Black Ops 4 is losing its player base on a daily basis, and there’s nothing else to save it except to become a permanent free-to-play version of the game. This also covers its competitors at EA for releasing Firestorm, for which it is believed to be following the same fashion.
Nevertheless, If you’re a true lover of the Battle Royale genres and would like to experience whatever’s hiding behind Blackout, you should get the game while it’s free. The only way to download it is by using Blizzard’s Battle.Net Launcher.
