"Xfinity is proud to offer our Internet customers this special opportunity to get in early and play what is no doubt one of the world's most anticipated video games of the year, plus it reinforces our Internet speed and capabilities that maximize the gaming experience".

Activision has made the rather freaky and controversial decision to bundle Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 DLC expansion in its Black Ops Pass, meaning you apparently won't be able to purchase each add-on separately.

If you're a U.S. resident, you're able to enter the Black Ops 4 beta sweepstakes via the Xfinity site.

The promotion will take place in eight USA cities: Washington, Boston, Philadelphia, Houston, Seattle, Chicago, Indianapolis and Atlanta. Typically, a Call of Duty Season Pass costs $49.99/£39.99, so we'd expect the Black Ops Pass to cost the same. "For us, we thought it was important to get as many people as possible to play the multiplayer beta, so we spread it across the country as best as we could based on Activision's ability to provide the experience as well". "Black Ops 4" beta is also slated to be available to the general public sometime in August. From there, you'll be granted access to the Black Ops 4 beta at a later date via an email code.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is due out on October 12 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.

According to Activision's support page (via Polygon), it seems that the DLCs sold for Black Ops 4 will be sold as an entire bundle.

In Boston, for example, Gordon Hayward of the Celtics will play Black Ops 4 alongside the winning contestants.
