Call Of Duty's Blackout Mode Getting Free Trial This Week

Activision has been experimenting with different ways to get Blackout, their Call of Duty-flavored battle royale game, into the hands of consumers, such as selling the mode separately. Now you can try the mode on its own for free later this week during a free week.

The free week is for all platforms for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, meaning PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can start playing on January 17 until the January 24, giving you plenty of time to emerge victorious in lauded battle royale mode. 

While free weeks and weekends are common, it does seem like Activision is still looking at days to spread the critically-acclaimed Blackout mode to other players. One of the key factors to Fortnite's success is that you can download and play it for free and Activision no doubt wants those numbers for their own battle royale games.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 won our shooter of the year award, as well as winning best battle royale mode for Blackout, best progression, and best competitive shooter.
