The beta is for all players who preorder Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

    The stream isn’t what we were expecting so I wouldn’t waste my time. They have “exclusive info” about SP, MP and Zombies but no gameplay (I think?)

    If you’re still interested check it out:

    • lunator100hd .

      are they gonna play mp or sp?

      • LovekillerX

        I don’t know.

    • They’re only talking about the trailer/game, and have 40 min interview with someone about campaign/mp/zombies… :/

      • LovekillerX

        Yep. They hyped it too much.

    • SoulTaker

      Not what I was expecting….

      • LovekillerX

        Yeah we got “cheated” again.

        • lunator100hd .

          mehhhhhhhh

        • Remember how I told you a few days ago, how they honey dicked us? Well, seems like I was right.

          • LovekillerX

            Yeah I remember that and I was thinking that today if I’m going to get cheated again. *sigh*

        • #therace

          You people are so stupid THEY MAKE MOMEY TELLING LIES AND U FOOLS FALL RIGHT INTO IT all I seen yesterday was omg.#therace is gonna have it all yea they had it all light they had all the dopes who fell for it and all the money hahahahaha

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I’ll play it in the background while going about my business just for this “exclusive zombies info”. If it’s something stupid I’ll be pretty upset.

    • Nah complete waste of time, I’d rather study for my finals

  • Naqash Liaqat

    Furst !!!! Denk u juses

  • This is smart. Gives the Devs time to fix the bugs before release. A week or two seems like it wouldn’t give them enough time to fix import things and we’d probaby get some day one update which no one wants

  • Ryumoau

    very nice! I wonder how expansive the beta will be. Like how many maps and weapons will we have access to as well as how many specialist types we can choose from.

    • Freeze

      Glad to see you on the site again!

      • Ryumoau

        lol thanks

        • Freeze

          I am so glad to be back myself! Really excited for BO3? What console?

          • Ryumoau

            i’m getting it on ps4.

          • Freeze

            Nice, I plan PS4 and PC. Good’day

        • Freeze

          btw I was MasterRocketPro

          • Ryumoau

            oh i was wondering. I remember that older username but not the new one. lol

          • Freeze

            Yeah :()

  • SoulTaker

    So far I’m loving the thoughts of a beta especially on PC will be able to tell how much Treyarch cares about the PC community instead of having to wait for a free Steam weekend. Now if only they allowed mod support for PC…

    • Mihalvic

      Check Drft0rs video on pc! It will be great this year i promise!

      • SoulTaker

        Is it a new video or is it the video he made a while back saying “Why Black Ops 3 needs to be great on PC”??

        • RdJokr

          A new video. He went to visit Treyarch, he got to play it on PC. It is working, it is running on 4K at 60 FPS almost flawlessly (I’m assuming max settings as well). This is it my PC brother. We are getting the COD game we deserve.

          • SoulTaker

            Can’t wait man sounds awesome !!! Treyarch has had some good PC ports I mean on BO2 I can run most maps over 120 FPS while in AW I struggle to even get a constant 91 and since the patch even worse. Can’t wait to see what the PC beta looks like to get a taste of Treyarchs PC work once again!

          • youhaveadrift0rpubeonyourchin

            Yea that’s all bull crap omg drft0r if you tell us sucking a big black bird would help our stats we would do ITT

  • LovekillerX

    Well he was right about wall running and dashing. Does last gen still have hope? Maybe it will be ported later?

    https://twitter.com/shinobi602/status/592399866250272770

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      You can’t preorder it for last gen.

      • LovekillerX

        That is why I think Black Ops 3 might be ported later.

      • guest

        not yet anyway

        • Inferno

          Let me get this straight, you are saying that last gem can handle creating weapons variants,custom paint jobs,3D weapon models when editing a gun? You obviously don’t know how much strain that would put on last gen.

      • Daniel Carradine

        Not yet you cant but the beta is coming out on both consoles so im sure there is going to be a 360 version

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Shinobi, again, knows little. Yes he was right about wallrunning, but he needs to get over the fact that he was wrong about last gen.

      Seriously, last gen cannot run this game at 60 fps.

      • guest

        ha cant wait until you get to eat crow.

        none of his prediction have been wrong duude, just suck it up. you seem salty over him for no reason. and yeah, they can get the game to run at 60fps, just like ghost and advanced warfare on alst gen, just as long as they downgrade it which they do for all last gen ports….nothin new to see here.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Shinobi is not an insider. He was wrong about last gen, that is a fact. Fanboy

        • ahhhhhhubrokee

          You can tell this is somebody who still has last gen work much?

        • Daniel Carradine

          Aw and ghosts are chunkier on 360 because the game is 30 fps not 60 360 isnt designed to run 60 fps

      • Tricky VIk

        “I hope, but not holding my breath.” ; w ;

  • J4MES

    #therace stream seems a waste of time – looks like it’s just talking for an hour and then a 40 minute interview of things to come which will be revealed at E3. So much for ‘gameplay’ tonight!

    • LovekillerX

      Yeah we all got cheated by their hype. Just like what happened to me with DLC2 trailer for AW. Wasted half of my evening on Esports. ^_^’

    • stupidjames

      That’s how stupid you little kids are they sucked u right in and why you had your dick in ur hand they made money hahahaba yea they will have game play hahahahaha all these fan boys yesterday were like omg yeaaaaa #therace hahahahahahaha

      • J4MES

        LMAO! Jeez, you can tell schools finished for the day eh?….

  • Guest

    No gameplay in the steam which sucks. Don’t fancy listening to 3 paid activision puppets bigging the game up all night. The trailer was quite possibly the worst Cod one i’ve ever seen and the lack of gameplay tonight just caps off a dismal day. I really didn’t think the series could get much worse after ghosts and advanced warfare but blops3 is certinaly a prime contender for the worst one i’ve seen so far.

    • zipher123

      Don’t judge a game on its marketing.

    • wipeurpuss

      Ummm to me it sounds like your booty hole hurt STILL bcuz u ran right over to the #therace after the trailer falling right into three plain they made tons of money y u the smacked ass sat there with his bird in his hand so stop being booty hole hurt

  • zipher123

    Will that really give them any decent dev time to fix things? Patches take months from what we’re experienced (Although that could be to do with it costing them money to patch things). Maybe they can more effectively fix things before the game launches. I dunno.

  • Freeze

    Really excited to try it out! Does anyone else plan to play?

    • It’s a Call of Duty Website…

      Obviously. Kind of a dumb question tbh

      • Freeze

        Okay, but some people do not like AW and Future ect, I was not a big fan of AW but I still plan on playing.

      • Michael:GodOfEWN

        Actually it’s not considering there seems to be a ton of criticism.

  • ScOott

    All this news is fecking crazy … Keep up the good work ci!

    • LovekillerX

      You got your news that you asked in the Black Ops 3 shirt news lol.

      • ScOott

        Huh lol ..

    • Static_Oz

      I’m not hating on all the new things Treyarch is adding. I’m sure I’ll like most of them. But what I really care about are getting into games quickly, minimal lag, HIT DETECTION, balanced weapons/classes, and last but not least but good gun fights with BOOTS ON THE GROUND ….good maps would definitely be a plus.
      I have faith in you Treyarch, make us proud!

      • Ernest Waddell

        Yes

      • James Dixon

        Boots on the ground was a thing to remember in cod history.

  • NuttyTheSquirrel

    Titanfall 2, is this you?

    I saw a Spectr and wall running, so…

    • Freeze

      Wall running is limited and according to Drif0r really risky. Most gunfights are in ground

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        Believe it when I play it.

        3spooky5me!

        • Freeze

          Also personally I would love MORE wallrunning, I loved titanfall and still play it from time to time.

  • Stefan Lang

    Really hate whiny ass kids this game looks good and only gonna get better with time.

    • GitGud

      You said that about Ghosts.

      *Facepalm

      • Stefan Lang

        “GitGud” perhaps you should take your own advice and get good at the games and stop saying they suck, maybe it’s you? 😉

        • stefanstinksatcod

          I played AW with you the other night and your terrible so step your game up before u talk poop

          • Stefan Lang

            lol another random claiming he knows me. What’s my gamer tag big fella?

      • Stefan Lang

        Lol facepalm til your hand goes through your face I dont give a fuck. 🙂

    • Michael:GodOfEWN

      Fanboys are annoying too. ^^

  • so awesome

    I hope I am 18 before beta and collectors edition announced. The first call of duty game I can buy without asking my parents first! Awesome.

    • Random

      I you can buy m related games at 17

  • ColonelBazz

    For all players who pre-order? But on the site itself they are talking about participating retailers? And it’s only US, Canada and France? + it’s limited?

    • Keshav Bhat

      It is not limited. The site only has those countries because those countries have preorders live right now. Once more sites have orders up, it’ll have more. Check with local retailer.

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        Theatre mode has been confirmed Keshav.

  • Mick

    1-2 week beta? Isn’t that short? Was [email protected] and cod 4’s beta longer than this? (I didn’t get into COD until after cod 4’s life cycle)

    • Xecho

      It’s not short.

      • Mick

        IMO that’s kinda short. We should have the beta for a whole month and report the bugs/glitches in the game so it’s ready for release day.

        • Xecho

          Betas aren’t really long.

  • MattyLP

    BO3 seems to be getting a lot of hate and I can see why after the trailer. I think this could be a bigger flop that AW and Ghosts. With IW and Sledgehammer next on the rotation; CoD could be very well finished. Thank god we have The Division, Siege, Battlefront, BF5, Halo 5 and Deus Ex Mankind Divided to fall back on. I bet BO3 also uses the same engine as AW which was produced in 2005!

    • JoZer805g

      I would like to see a Bad Company 3 game for Battlefield instead of 5, BF4 was a mess at launch but was fun overall.

    • iseenuplayawurtrash

      How is AW a flop they sold over millions and millions of copies and u ran and bought one to here is another example of a kid who stinks at AW so it sucks

      • Daniel Carradine

        Of course it sold millions the name sells it but if you look at the amount of people playing it now its a flop compared to any other cod

    • SoulTaker

      I’m down with that. On PC I don’t even feel SBMM since matchmaking is effed up lol

      • RdJokr

        It’s just lack of players in general. Kinda hard to deal with that when players in your region tend to go the console route rather than the PC route.

    • Michael:GodOfEWN

      Okay so no SBMM. Now let’s hope for weapon balance.

    • w

      You know SBMM is a problem when theres been discussions before/during a reveal

    • ScOott

      This is now allready a better game than SH 😀

  • burrgee

    i wonder if you can carry over your rank from the beta to the full game.. straight out grinding for two weeks.. hype.

    • J4MES

      Hope not and doubt it. Don’t really want the beta full of people protecting their stats right off the bat. It should be a fun experience where people experiment and adjust out of their comfort zone.

  • silvester

    Why you should try a beta to discover how this cod gonna be before you buy itt allready i dont see the point
    btw i play cod for 7 years so i know how cod is hahaha

  • Guest

  • I hope it’s for 2 weeks and 2 months before launch.

  • Charlie

    I think some of you guys are jumping to conclusions. Based on people who played MP, they said the movement is not something you want to do during gunfights, more so a means to move across the map tactically. Plus the maps aren’t 3 or 4 levels.

    Sounds to me like the took an updated movement system that fans did want at one point, and balanced it to a point that it’s best used as a tactical way around the map, rather than a jumpy vertical mess like AW.

    It’s all about map design for me, if they pull it off correctly, it could be great. There are some things that I worry about but we haven’t seen gameplay of it yet. But it def sounds like its gonna be a fun game.

    • Guest

      THANK YOU. Finally someone in this comment section that actually has done research and hasnt jumped to conclusions. *claps*

    • McToasty207

      Far as I can tell all the movement stuff Treyarch have added are more about circumnavigation e.g finding the fastest route to an objective or using map knowledge to your advantage, basically what I wanted to see in AW. We’ll have to wait and see what Treyarch does but so far I’m happy with everything they’ve announced from public betas to these new abilities which I’m hoping might lessen the fixation on Aerial Killstreaks, I much prefer that Golden Gun power up than another Drone Strike.

  • 1 month is too close to release date imo – 2 months before should be perfect (or even earlier)

    • Tricky VIk

      “Isn’t it in September?..”

      • I have no idea – just reading what it says in the article – “1-2 months” before the launch date.

  • OJ da Juiceman

    Wow, preorder early access … how original.

  • OnQore

    Time to grind out Titanfall until the beta release! Who’s with me?!! lmao

  • malcolm butler

    I’m not sure why people make such a big deal about Youtubers getting free trips to dev studios. Instead of worrying about what other people do, you should be worrying about yourself and Idk, how BO3 will turn out to be? Whether or not some youtubers (Tmartn, Alia, Prestigeiskey, etc) are sellouts is anyone’s guess, but that should be the least of your worries. I see no other logical reason for this other than jealousy

  • OnQore

    & THE WAIT BEGINS

    • Kill Denied

      how to take a screen shot LOL

    • hahahahaha

      This dude was so excited to screen shot this to show everybody hahahaha

  • ejew99

    when will we be able to play the beta ?

  • What?!

    Beta website is down!

  • CrewDawg

    I can’t believe anyone thinks there is the slightest possibility that the game will end up on last gen. They already said they are not doing last gen. It would be infinity ward that would rebuild the game for last gen, and I’m pretty sure that they are going to have their hands full trying to build a game worth buying in 2016. By 2016, it won’t even be cost effective to make games compatible with last gen. Just going to have to accept that fact that, at this point, if you want to continue playing the new COD every year…just going to have to cough up that dough for next gen

  • Tha wiz man

    Hardcore free for all!! Knife lunge needs to come back, because that punch crap is garbage you literally have to be rubbing next to the guy for punch to connect. Another great thing that would bring back the best game ever!! Is no more freaking hit markers on hardcore!!

  • Omar Alnuaimi

    His guest is crap cause they said multiplayer beta so they will just finish one map and make it live and it takes them three month to create 3 multiplayer map and one zombies so we Will wait only one month max from my our current times

  • BIG-DADDY-WOLF

    It’s all about zombies people common now.

  • CollateralRage

    Will it carry on the levels for the multiplayer beta. Yes or no. And if not then i wanna know why
