So far, details on the inevitable Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta have been rather scarce. We knew it was coming, that it would arrive in digital form, and that it would hit the PlayStation 4 first, but nothing beyond that. Today though we have learned the official release date, which is set for August 19th, 2015.
The announcement came from developer Treyarch, who is handling Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 after taking a break from the storyline with Call of Duty: Ghosts. They also made sure to point out that it would arrive on PS4, forgoing the Xbox One. This is due to Sony gaining the exclusivity rights for the series, starting with Black Ops 3.
Formerly multiplayer betas would be a Microsoft console exclusive, along with the early release of DLC, including multiplayer maps. That ends with the latest entry though, and this is just the first of many perks that PS4 owners can look forward to.
How long the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta will last, or what content it will contain is still unknown. Treyarch promised “more information coming soon” though, so these questions should be answered quickly.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will arrive on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC on November 6th.
