How and Where to Preorder Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Coming October 12.

If you buy something through this post, IGN may get a share of the sale. For more, read our Terms of Use.

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII comes out October 12, and we already know the long-rumored Battle Royale mode is real. Treyarch also gave some concrete details into the new zombie mode, including three brand-new alternate history scenarios. If you’ve ever dreamed of slaughtering zombies in gladiatorial combat or on the Titanic, Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII zombies has you covered.

Here are the biggest retailers and their preorder pages for Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII as they currently stand. No special editions, collector’s editions, or retailer-exclusive preorder bonuses have been revealed yet, but we’ll update this page as soon as that changes.

Preorder Bonus

If you preorder Black Ops IIII, you gain access to a private beta at some point in the future. Treyarch didn’t give any further details after its reveal event other than the beta exists.

Some retailers list 1,100 Call of Duty points as a preorder bonus, but not all. The listings are still really young, but it’s a good bet those points will be included in all the preorders.

Amazon Standard Edition, $59.99. The Prime member 20% discount isn’t live yet, but if you order it and you’re a Prime member, Amazon will apply the discount when it goes live.

Best Buy

Best Buy really wants you to preorder through its online store. If you’re a Gamers Club Unlocked member, you get the standard 20% discount, but Best Buy is also throwing in a $10 reward eligibility you can apply to other purchases.


Walmart doesn’t have a member discount program like Amazon or Best Buy, but it does have free 2-day shipping and free in-store pickup. Speaking broadly here, there’s probably a good chance you’re closer to a Walmart than you are to a Best Buy.


GameStop isn’t offering a discount, but if you’re a member of GameStop’s customer loyalty program, you can score some points by preordering now. Like Walmart, GameStop also has in-store pickup, so you can guarantee a copy. It also has free shipping, which is nice.


You can preorder Black Ops IIII directly from Microsoft and have it delivered for free. You also get 1,100 Call of Duty points you can use in-game for in-game stuff. It doesn’t delve into the details of what those points are good for, but they’re points… and they’re there.

PlayStation Store

The PlayStation store has the option to order either the physical disc or a digital copy. Unfortunately, only the download link is live right now. The page is pretty sparse at the moment, but just like all the other retailers, details will start trickling in.


Newegg already has Black Ops 4 discounted. Add it to your cart to see the adjusted price of $49.99. That’s not quite as generous as Best Buy or Amazon, but you also don’t need any kind of membership, plus it has free 3-day shipping.

You can’t get Black Ops 4 on Steam. Activision is really leaning into as its one-stop shop for all its biggest online games. This preorder lists the Call of Duty points mentioned in the Microsoft store.


If you want to get it on release day without having to visit your local Target, you have to spring for express shipping. This is probably not your best option for preordering, but we’re including it here for the Target hardcore. They exist, right?
