Hot on the heels of the reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s new Zombies experience at San Diego Comic-Con, we’re now turning our focus to the launch of the multiplayer beta next month. For the first time since Call of Duty: World at War, Treyarch is giving fans all over the globe an opportunity to get their hands on Black Ops 3 multiplayer, months ahead of its release on November 6.

The beta kicks off in early access for PlayStation 4 owners on Wednesday, August 19 and will continue through Sunday, August 23. On Wednesday, August 26 the beta will be available on Xbox One and PC and run through Sunday, August 30. During the beta, fans will have an opportunity to try the new momentum-based, chained movement system, find the perfect Specialist to fit their play style, get a feel for the new multiplayer maps, and more.

In the weeks ahead, Treyarch will share more details about the beta’s launch, the included maps and modes, and more, so keep an eye out for details. The multiplayer beta is available to anyone who pre-orders Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on PS4, Xbox One, or PC from a participating retailer, as well as the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Store, and Steam.

THANK GOODNESS! We can finally get away from the "Worst Call of Duty Title" [AW]

Only 4 days for the beta?

Shit can't wait for this Black Ops 3 looks so much better than Advanced Warfare! +1 for Tomahawks!

Level 1

Where or when do we get the beta code. I pre ordered back in may on the psn. Was i suppose to get a code?

Level 67

But is there tanks in beta?

Level 2

I feel the Beta should last 7 days for all platforms.

Level 1

how do you apply your activation code for the beta?

Level 4

I'll be watching for 3 things from gamers before I even consider purchasing B.O.3.  One will be a Dedicated Server.  Two: Will be no latency excuses,  And three, I'll be watching videos uploaded by players to see if the game is still on an old but tweaked Quake Engine.   Otherwise, I wish you all the very best of luck with the game.  And I really hope that activision change my mind.  But I'm not falling for all the hype.  I've been stung one time two  many. 

Peace and regards to all.

I have entred my beta code almost two months from now and the website said to wait for new information but I have not recieved anything I there is no place where I can see if Im still a part of the beta. Do someone know about any of this?, I dont want to miss out on the Beta

Level 2

If you got it digitally it will be already installed on that given day that the beta is officially realized. If you pre ordered from store you will be emailed a code from the retailer you bought from.
