How to Sign Up for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Free Trial With a Virtual Credit Card

Free trials and demos are a great way to try a game you think you might like before spending any money. However, they have become rarer in recent years and can be hard to find. Also, sometimes when you sign up, you have to give your credit card number, and if you don't cancel they will charge you.

Call of Duty is a popular first-person shooter series by Blizzard. Black Ops 4 is an installment that offers zombies (lots of zombies) and a multiplayer battle royale mode called Blackout.

DoNotPay can help you find free trials for games and use a virtual credit card so you can sign up without the risk of being billed when a trial period expires. You can always switch in your real credit card if you decide to keep the game. We can also help you get a refund if you buy  and then decide you don't like it after all.

Does Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Offer a Free Trial?

Blizzard does not offer a regular free trial or a downloadable demo for any of the Call of Duty games. This might be because it is an established series with a good reputation and a large audience, so they don't feel the need to entice new players with a demo.

However, they do periodically offer limited-time free trials, usually when a new game is released or a major feature is added. To find out about these trials, you should sign up for the Call of Duty newsletter. Typically, the free trial lasts about a week. Also, to access these free trials you may need a subscription. For example, for the Blackout mode trial on the Xbox, you needed to have Live Gold. These offers are aimed more at existing players who want to decide whether to get a DLC than new ones.

Whether there will be another  is unclear, but if there is, it is likely to revolve around an added feature.

How Can I Get a Black Ops 4 Free Trial?

If a new trial period opens up, then how you get the free trial depends on what platform you are playing on.

For example, for PC, you will need to

  1. Go to the Call of Duty website. Note that because Black Ops 4 is no longer the most recent version of Call of Duty, it is not linked in the game menu on the homepage, so follow the link given here.
  2. Click on PC
  3. Scroll down. You will see several purchase options and one of them will be the free trial.

Because Black Ops 4 is not the most recent version, it is highly unlikely that there will be another trial as the company tries to funnel players into the newer version, Cold War. There are unlikely to be any further major updates to the older game.

It is unclear whether a credit card is needed to access these trials, but as they are aimed at existing players, some require you to already own the base version of the game.

Does the Black Ops 4 Free Trial Automatically Renew Into a Paid Subscription?

It appears not. Rather, you lose access to the material at the end of the trial period unless you purchase it. This means you don't have to worry as much about them charging you for the trial. The real difficulty is getting one in the first place.

However, if they do a trial that automatically charges you, you can avoid these charges by using a DoNotPay Virtual Credit Card.

Avoid Automatic Renewal With DoNotPay Virtual Credit Card

Forgetting to cancel a free trial is a thing we have all done, finding out only when we got billed. A way to avoid this is to do your initial sign-up with a virtual credit card. These work by:

  • Generating a random number you can use to subscribe. This looks like a real credit card for initial verification.
  • When the service tries to charge you, the charge fails to go through and looks like there is no money on the card. This typically results in automatic unsubscription.

Virtual credit cards help you do these things:

  • Don't give out your real financial information
  • Don't pay for rollover subscriptions after free trials
  • Explore dozens of free trials without hassle or financial risk

Here’s how virtual credit cards work:

  1. Virtual credit cards are used to provide a valid card number to a service you have no intention of paying after the free trial is over.
  2. DoNotPay gives you a temporary, random credit card number.
  3. You copy that number into your free trial sign-up.
  4. The card exists until you use it, then is deactivated without ever accepting a charge.

If you then decide you want the product, you can go in and replace the virtual credit card with your real payment details.

How Much Does Black Ops 4 Cost?

Black Ops 4 has multiple purchase levels and also the Black Ops Pass, which is a bundle of extra content including extra characters and maps. You can also buy these separately.

Furthermore, the pricing depends on which retailer you go through, which platform you use, and may even vary over time. For example, at the time of writing, the standard edition of the base game for PC costs $38.49 through Target and $20.88 through Walmart.

In other words, the cost is extremely variable and if you see a good deal for the game you should get it.
