Arguably, the biggest selling point for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is its take on the Battle Royale formula, Blackout. This last man standing multiplayer mode merges the shrinking play field and high player count made popular by PUBG and Fortnite with the tight shooting and refined gameplay of Call of Duty, and it's been a pretty big success. If you've ever been curious about trying Blackout but have been hesitant to buy the full game, you're in luck.

As announced in the above video, a free trial is coming to Black Ops 4, allowing you to play Blackout without spending a penny. The free trial period runs from tomorrow, 17th January, through to 24th January -- in other words, a week of free time with CoD's spin on Battle Royale. It's not been made clear whether PS Plus will be required, but we'd assume you need a subscription for this. If it's any different, we'll let you know.

Will you be giving Blackout a go during its free trial on PS4? Squad up in the comments below.
