Call of Duty: Black Ops III PS4 Beta Starting on August 19th

Treyarch announced today via Twitter that Call of Duty fans don't have much longer to wait for the beta of Black Ops III.

The story is too old to be commented.

THATS ON MY BIRTHDAY!

sorry for the over excitement but I can't wait!

OT: the salt is real in the twitter comments

Forgive my cluelessness, but did the recent CoDs had beta at all? I can't seem to recall.

Rimeskeem928d ago (Edited 928d ago )

I don't think so actually. It's a good practice they should get into.

badz149928d ago

Which means...now tyat they have swithced the deal from Xbox to PS, they suddenly are having a beta? That is actually a great improvement.

CerebralAssassin928d ago

Last one to have beta is world at war I believe.

Ps4 has beta first. Pc and Xbox will get it

NarooN928d ago

The last CoD that had a beta was World at War in 2008, from what I recall.

spacedelete928d ago

i'm surprised they are even having a beta. people will realise its terrible and cancel their orders.

Skate-AK928d ago

Like the others said, WAW was the first and only COD Beta test.

@spacedelete

Screw them for not having a beta then and screw them for having the beta now! Is that what you're saying?

I can only praise them for their effort this time around as they are not just hoping for and relying on blind purchasers like they usually did. but it may also due to the decline in sales that the series is facing and they feel like the beta is a way for them to entice the excitement towards the franchise once again. I don't really know.

I can't say I'm a fan of the series as the last one I bought and played was CoD4. But despite the decline in sales, it is still raking in huge numbers and recently only GTA V was selling more and this series has legs throughout the year too. It is proven by various charts where it remains in the top 20 for the whole year before the next one comes out - minus GTAV, the only other game to manage to do THAT which I can think of is FIFA.

Their last E3 showing was decent and having a beta now is showing that they are making an effort to deliver a better game. Treyach has improved a lot in recent years and is no longer playing 2nd fidle to Infinity Ward like they used to. I can see BO3 selling more than last year's AW but we shall see.

nucky64928d ago

yea - looking forward to the zombie reveal - zombies are the only reason I'd get it....and i keep reading that they'll announce the collectors edition will carry remastered versions of many of the old zombie maps. that'd be sweet.

FallenAngel1984928d ago

What about the PS3 version of the beta

kaizokuspy928d ago

Hate it for you, but I don't think it will be last gen.

nucky64928d ago (Edited 928d ago )

sorry - reply in wrong spot.

Skate-AK928d ago

Beta is Current Gen only.

mafiahajeri927d ago

Nope cod 4 had a beta test, I would know, I partcipated in it :)

CaptainSheep928d ago

Is this is the beta that's open to everyone they're talking about?

Rimeskeem928d ago

I think it's the one where you have to pre order the game

Relientk77928d ago
