Call of Duty: Black Ops III multiplayer beta details

PS4 owners get first dibs on beta coming in August

Hello, PlayStation fans! I’ve been writing this blog from the conference back stage, and I’m so glad I can finally talk about the next Call of Duty. Everyone here at PlayStation couldn’t be more thrilled about tonight’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 news and what it means for the PlayStation Nation.

It’s hard to describe, but there’s something about Black Ops 2 multiplayer that made the game really special for me. I got the same feeling when I tried Black Ops 3, so I can’t tell you how excited I am that folks at E3 this week are getting hands-on with playable multiplayer on the show floor.

In case you missed it, here’s the Black Ops 3 Multiplayer reveal trailer that we just showed at our conference.

Call of Duty Black Ops III

If you’re not here at E3, you won’t have to wait until launch, because we revealed that PS4 owners who pre-order get first dibs on the multiplayer Beta coming in August. I know it’s hard sometimes watching everyone going to E3 and checking out these games early, so we wanted to make sure the PlayStation Nation get some of that same love.

And for the fans who want more and want it sooner, starting with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 downloadable map packs will be playable first on PlayStation.

That’s all for now! If campaign mode is more up your alley, keep an eye out for a blog and new trailer from my friends at Treyarch later tonight.

So my Xbox friends can’t play the beta at the same time because of an arbitrary partnership between SCE and Activision? :(

I think it’s very annoying for consumers when a multiplatform game gets timed exclusive content (aka, content delayed on competing platform) on one specific platform. I know, it’s kind of how the competitive market works, platform differentiation and business partnerships, but I’m just saying, it has absolutely no inherent value for consumers.

If I enjoy Street Fighter V on PS4, I would like as many people to enjoy Street Fighter V. If I enjoy Rise of the Tomb Raider on XB1, I’d like as many people, regardless of platform to enjoy the game. :)

So imho, you should have shown RATCHET & CLANK at the E3 media briefing instead of highlighting some timed exclusive Disney Infinity figurine lol. :)

Ratchet & Clank looks SO good!

Anyway, have a great day.

Edit: I mean the downloadable map packs.

It’s marketing

It was a very big surprise to Sony showing it at E3 instead of Microsoft for a change. Did Sony pay more money for it to happen or is it the developers/publishers choice to pick a lead platform?

No 4 player splitscreen for singleplayer and multiplayer no buy.

I know if you pre order bo3 the cash won’t be taken out of your wallet untill the day of release but if you want to play the beta do you got to have the full amount of cash in your wallet to play the beta

This is exactly what I’m wondering… I’m not sure whether I still need to have the full amount (£45) when the beta comes out, or if I can have £1 in the bank and still get the beta.. I’m coffufiled too. I’ll have the money for when the game is released i just hope I’m able to play the beta with nothing in the bank.

I am wondering does this feature only work for players who pre-ordered in the playstation store or can it work for people who pre-order it in gamestop or pre-ordered in ebay,please answer this question because I am really looking forward to playing this game and I would love to have beta access?
