Release Date And New Details On Call Of Duty: Black Ops III Beta

Activision reveals details on the upcoming Call of Duty multiplayer beta including release date and the number of maps and game modes.

Today Treyarch and Activision dumped a plethora of details about the upcoming about the upcoming Call of Duty multiplayer beta. This includes not only game modes but also the release date! In new trailer that was released we have these details about what to expect in the upcoming beta.

  • Unlock weapons, perks, equipment, and Scorestreaks
  • Over 7 multiplayer modes
  • Over 3 maps
  • 8 multiplayer specialists
  • Weapon customization
  • Paintshop

This sounds like quite a bit for a multiplayer beta. I'm not sure if they are looking to test weapon and game mode balance, use it as a marketing ploy to boost up preorders, or to test to make sure that the servers will be able to handle the huge influx of players on the first day. I wouldn't be too surprised if it's the last as it seems that every game launched this generation has had a rocky start when it comes to server stability.

All of these will be accessible in the beta for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. However it will be the PlayStation 4 that gets the beta first as they revealed that it will be available beginning August 19th.
