UPDATE: Call of Duty has tweeted out that players who play the Black Ops 3 beta before it ends on August 24th will get an exclusive calling card alongside the previously announced theme. 

Original Story:
Activision has announced that all players who play the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta on the PlayStation 4 will get a free Zombies Morg City Theme for use on the PS4 console. The theme will be made available at a later date, for free if you played the multiplayer beta.

Treyarch announced last night that the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta is open for everyone on PlayStation 4; no codes required in order to download the beta. The beta ends August 23rd.

    I guess it looks okay but I am not such a big fan of art themes like this. So I guess I keep my The Order 1886 theme.

    • ScOott

      I hate themes full stop. It looks so much better plain Jane..

      • Siftblade

        I use the PS Anniversary theme. It’s clean, has the classic startup sound, and has really nice background music.

        • ScOott

          That’s the one I use, I ment these ones that come with games..

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Themes are cool. I would like custom themes. If I had an Xbox One I’d use that all the time.

        • That’s like one of the only cool things about the Xbox One when it comes to customizations. You can use whatever you want. 🙂

  • Daniel

    I fear that bo3 will only launch w/ this shitty map on disc

    • ScOott

      Why shitty ? .. I hope it isn’t the only map tho, I hope we get lots of different locations that look completly different like bo1

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        We better get that or else Treyarch is doing something wrong lol. I think all maps were like that. Butttttt it’s none if my business. ?☕

        • ScOott

          Lol bo2 base maps were all the same

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The DLC maps were my favorite. Not as much of a fan of the on-disc maps. Zombies is the only reason why I play CoD, now.

          • ScOott

            Why what was the last multiplayer you liked ? .. Did you not like bo3 beta ?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I haven’t played the beta

    • Guywithbrains

      In my opinion it seems like the best map compared to all other old maps. For example I don’t know what is so cool about Der Riese. It looks boring.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Der Riese is one of the better maps. My favorites of all time are Mob of the Dead, Buried, Ascension, and Der Riese. Try it out.

      • Fly Mann13

        Looks boring doesnt mean it is boring. The old maps. Before bo2 were all good you just have to play the other when you get bored of one, theres so many zombie maps

    • Xerolh

      This map looks amazing.

      • Xayo

        I disagree, mob of the dead looks better. Origins looks better. Not sure about buried. BO maps will wreck this map. WAW maps are meh but der riese is better

        • Joshwoocool

          Origins is basically Grey

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Why would you need color in a post-apocalyptic world?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Because people will complain the map is dull and boring, even though it’s supposed to be dull.

          • Joshwoocool

            Look at maps like Shangri laJust because it’s zombies doesn’t mean you cant be in a beautiful areas

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            …But the world is fucked?

        • Xerolh

          Bo1 maps were pretty boring in my opinion. Hated moon hated shangri la and hated call of the dead. This map looks much better and its setting looks amazing.

          • Fly Mann13

            Bo1 brought the classic maps back so basically it has the most zombie maps, much better than tranzit, buried, and die rise. Mob and origins were good maps tho

          • Xerolh

            Oh i totally agree bo1 maps were much better than tranzit, buried, and did rise. Mob and origins are my favorite maps by far though.

        • Nicholas Tipps

          You cant judge a game that hasnt come out buddy

        • CoDforever

          tbh this looks on par with mob of the dead

        • Danzi

          Der riese is in Black ops 3 man

      • It does look good to me, but only 1 map would be lame…

        • Xerolh

          True

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Looks way better than Exo-Zombies, to be fair, seems like a fun map. We will see.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I thought Outbreak was a good map for Exo Zombies, then it just got stupid. Still haven’t played the last 2 Exo Zombies maps.

        • Greasy Neckbeard

          Carrier is an ok map

      • Fly Mann13

        Pretty sure its better, treyarch zombies is different than exos, especially with the amount of hits you can take and i think its gonna be bare bones again, no exos

      • Meh. Outbreak looks better than this, More hyped for the giant.

    • Group_935

      I love the 1940’s era and when you add zombies to the pot, it’s going to be good.

    • Ryan Collewijn

      you have not played it so why argument about it

  • CrowReap .

    thurd. I might as well say it.

  • Xerolh

    Sick

  • Xayo

    Do you think the Xbox beta will start early since the ps4 beta did? It’s only fair. Same goes for PC too.

    • DEMOLITION12

      what’s that meant to mean

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      No, I read its gonna start a week late, basically no one will try it anyway so who cares.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Nope probably not but we will see

    • Fly Mann13

      The ps4 beta ends tomorrow, it would only be able to be 1 day earlier because it comes out on 24th i believe for xbox and pc, and it wont make sense. Also its already fair how it is, ps4 gets stuff early now so its expected for everything to be late on pc and xbox

    • Danzii

      Urm are you forgetting that BlackOps3 is exclusive to Playstation 🙂 You Xbox players are whining like children already! Us Playstation players have waited for years. Time for you guys to be patient and take it up the *** hahahah

  • Bj

    Some one hurry and post a pic without all the psn on it. So I can use it for my xb1 wallpaper. Thanks in advance.??

    • Xayo

      Just use a flash drive

      • Bj

        But it will still have the psn branding on it.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Rep PlayStation what’s wrong with that? Lol

        • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

          LOL or you can get a PlayStation and rock the proper theme which I assume has the awesome zombie soundtrack and sound effects as you scroll through the menus.

          • Ryan Collewijn

            hope so but it would be awezome if it also comes to the one no offense not into console wars (=

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            That would be cool if Xbox One can get it too, guess we have to wait and see.

        • Fly Mann13

          They might have a theme for the xbox one

  • Xayo

    If we only get one map for zombies I will be disappointed man. This map looks okay-ish but I hope we get at least one more. They better not pull a tranzit 2.0 either.

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      Uhh Der Riese (THE GIANT) however ONLY if you get HARDENED, DIGITAL, or JUGGERNOG EDITIONS.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Probably going to be able to buy it individually sooner or later, screw paying twenty more dollars and supporting Activision.

        • Sol Malus

          If you plan on getting the Season pass the Digital Deluxe is actually the cheapest option and it comes with the map.

          • Siftblade

            Agreed. If not, definitely just wait. It’ll probably be like Nuketown Zombies, where they sell it for $5 after a few months.

          • IyeCaptain

            Urrrm noo because it’s Der Riese remember! Nuketown was s*** and small

          • Siftblade

            Reread my comment before you start getting butthurt. I was comparing their prices, not the actual maps.

        • Kyle Soule

          I agree with you. I hate activision.

          • Sol Malus

            Again, if you want to pay the least money, go with the digital deluxe edition.

        • RdJokr

          Because paying $5 individually later doesn’t count as “supporting Activision”, right?

      • Bart

        I think also if you bought the season pass, just like BO2 with Nuketown Zombies

    • Yankeephil

      I have a feeling that there will be a map after finishing the campaign

      • Will WilFredo Mendoza

        Probably Shadows of Evil Part 2!

  • noah

    hope it is a dynamic with rainfall and lightning then it will be a keeper

    • That would be cool. Also, how’s it going other noah? 😛

    • considering that both MOTD and Origins were dynamic, it wouldn’t be a surprise that this map will also be

    • Ryan Collewijn

      or with fog rolling in haha that never gets old

  • Someone broke the servers again… 🙁

    • Ciaran

      This looks like a problem with psn. Other games are also affected I hear,

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Both networks have had issues today then.

      • Shadow

        Every other game I played was fine, it was just the Beta, Treyarch even said.

    • Bolbi Stroganovsky
  • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

    The matches in BO3 are so tight and intense.

    http://res.cloudinary.com/urbandictionary/image/upload/a_exif,c_fit,h_200,w_200/v1395991705/gjn81wvxqsq6yzcwubok.png

    The new Safeguard mode is pretty legit, can get so many kills. It’s like a tug of war lol

    • Group_935

      Some guy got 101 kills, of course he was using the H.A.T.R and the balls of furry.

      • Juses

        R.A.P.S suk. Et unly geets u like 5 keels.

        • Choppabro2psn

          It’s only because they’re so easy to blow up. Especially if you have on engineer, and can see them coming.

      • Choppabro2psn

        I was in a game last night, a dude dropped 120/20 on safeguard. Imjoined when he’s was nearly at 100 kills, and I was able to kill him 6 times by myself. Wouldnt say has was good. I just think the players on my team were new to the beta. I was the highest level on my team.

    • LovekillerX

      Safeguard mode is pretty much a new spawn trap mode…

      • Guywithbrains

        Spawn trapping is back (sadly) because SBMM is gone and now players can feel good when they slay kids with no thumbs. 🙂

        It would be nice to try Domination before the beta ends but so far I have only played TDM because it is only mode where I don’t get spawn trapped.

        • ScOott

          Wait, if the good players are the spawn trappers, doesn’t that make you the kid with no thumbs lol..

          • Guywithbrains

            I was referring to gifs on Black Ops 3’s Reddit. I have only experienced spawn trapping once and that lasted about 10 seconds until I left the game.

            But my point still stands: SBMM gone = “good players” exploiting spawns. Hopefully they fix spawns before launch. I can forgive now because it is beta phase and spawns can be fixed.

          • ScOott

            Quick save 😉 .. Although if you only experinance it once, spawn trapping can’t be that bad ?.. You haven’t been playing TDM to get to the level your at all this time surely with just one game from a different game mode you got spawn trapped in ? ? ?

          • Guywithbrains

            But many others on Reddit have said spawn trapping is a really big issue because of bad spawns.

            Here is an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HzjqOAU6S8&feature=youtu.be&t=29s

          • ScOott

            You win lol.. Although I don’t understand how they will ever ever fix spawns specially when the maps we got are really tiny.. They would have to re do the whole spawn system, it’s been a problem with cod for years I wouldn’t get your hopes up about it getting fixed now, one of them like it or lump things imo.. Some times we all will get spawn trapped ..

          • Yeah

            What they should do is add a spawn protection for a short time to stop things like spawn trapping from happening.

          • Rickylynn Peters

            hell no dont put spawn protection!

          • Diego Diniz

            I Hate players like this Guy!
            Fuck all the Cheaters, Wallhackers, Aim-Bots and Spawn Trappers…

        • LovekillerX

          Well I don’t honestly “miss” SBMM because I get so good stats. I don’t get stomped all the time which is surprising because I got stomped in Black Ops 2. I just got many 5+ K/D matches in a row today.

          I want to see spawns fixed and spawn trapping gone though…

        • jordanxxxbrookes

          Get some friends and stop playing solo in team based games. It’s not MW2 levels. It’s mostly just good players abusing weaker players be it rushing or holding down choke points. Also I’m not calling you bad so no need to mention a “2.5+ kdr with 400+ spm”.

        • ColonelBazz

          Tip for if you get spawntrapped. Use the walls. Especially on Evac, you can go around the map on the outside of the walls.

        • Rickylynn Peters

          get a team and it wont happen.

    • Since you have the beta is the gun bench or whatever it’s called active? I know the paintjob is but i’m sorta a gun nut and care more about gun models than texture.

      • djml9

        No, its not unfortunately. I was really excited to try it out too.

        • Wow.
          Severely disappointed.

    • ScOott

      Who is that ? Stifblade used to have him as his picture..

      • Siftblade

        Kappa

      • CoDforever

        did u find out lol lmk too

        • ScOott

          Lol yes thankyou, you just made me google “lmk” as well.. Wot a fecking dunce I am!

          • CoDforever

            .. well who was he LOL

          • Siftblade

            It’s a twitch emote. You basically post it after things you say that are sarcastic or trying to trick the viewer/streamer. If you look at the face, it looks like a guy holding in a laugh, which is essentially what it signifies on Twitch. It’s kinda hard to explain, it’s easier to just see examples of it and get the idea of what it signifies.

            EDIT: Here’s a pretty good definition.

            “The Kappa is a meme among Twitch users (and now it seems other places.) The meme has become a sort of patron saint of light hearted trolling among the gaming community. Users typing Kappa into Twitch chat see a special emoticon featuring a smug looking human face.”

          • ScOott
          • CoDforever

            what a nice and informative post. Heres my upvote good sir

          • ScOott

            Thanks! Il treasure that upvote, as I don’t get them very often for being nice and informative.. Have one back 😀

      • Stifblade? Lmao! 😛

        • ScOott

          Lol fack you noahgoa, I’m having a bad day! I will edit right now!

          • Haha, I guess we both had to make edits today! 😛

  • Sorry that this is irrelevant, but I just wanted to say I’m hyped to be getting this in the mail soon!

    • ScOott

      See you on c.i Twitter soon! 🙂

      • If actually post the picture, sure!

        • ScOott

          *when I actually post the picture, sure!

  • Greasy Neckbeard

    What time is the beta ending tomorrow?

  • Bolbi Stroganovsky
  • matt murdock

    what time is the beta supposed to end????

  • Guywithbrains

    The beta is near it’s end on Playstation 4 so let’s give our final thoughts about your favorite specialist(s)?

    • LovekillerX

      Scythe and Seraph. Scythe is so OP just press your R2 and hold it pressed and you will get nice looking feed.

    • Siftblade

      Mine are Scythe (Death machine) and Outrider (Vision Pulse).

    • JDahn

      Mine is Spectre. The melee is just epic!

    • Bolbi Stroganovsky

      Miley Cyrus

    • ScOott

      Now it’s nearly over I wanna know what you guys think of high caliber, I’ve used it but I don’t know how much of a difference it makes ? Wasn’t sure if I was wasting a slot or not ..

      • Guywithbrains

        High caliber only adds damage to bullets that hit enemies’ head.

        I would recommend using grip, quickdraw and long barrel in assault rifles and if you are using sub machine guns then add rapid fire in addition to grip, quickdraw and long barrel. Works best with Razorback IMO.

        • ScOott

          I knew that, I just wasn’t sure how affective it was, Or if anyone uses it.. I honestly don’t understand everyone’s obsession with the Razorback I used it today and thought it was just as balanced as the other guns..

          • Siftblade

            Yeah, Razorback is meh. Not really digging any of the SMGs this year (even though people are calling them OP). The M8A7 and Man o’ War are my favorite guns.

          • ScOott

            Yh I was hoping for a few good smg, I loved mp7 and Msmc (or something like that) from bo2 il be sticking with a.r tho For bo3 I feel.. FMJ, forgrip, rapid fire and extended mags, I’ve stuck it on all a.r and not done bad yet.. I might stick high caliber on the burst fire weapons if it really does make a difference then ..

      • Siftblade

        I use it on the M8A7 with Fore Grip. Turns that gun into a headshot beast. If I hit the enemy in the head, they don’t stand chance.

      • Danzii

        I know right! What’s the point in putting high caliber on?! Your going to melt them if you get a headshot anyway! I preferred to use fastrelaod helps a bunch!

  • D3ADWANTED 25

    Yet theres still no zombies gameplay (not the reveal trailer like a 10 min gameplay)

    • PandaMan

      They never give gameplay for Zombies. The only thing they release is a trailer

      • D3ADWANTED 25

        i guess but i still don’t know how the new features would work?

  • LovekillerX
    • Guywithbrains

      Possibly another level cap raise or then they make everything unlockable in last few hours. But that is just my wild guess it can be anything.

      • lunator100hd .

        What time the beta is over?

        • Guywithbrains

          No one knows for sure.

        • Yankeephil

          I would assume 12 am PST, thats what time PSN is going down for maintenance

    • Stefan Lang

      Could be raising it to level 55

  • King Carter

    How can I obtain the new theme?

    • Yankeephil

      It’s not out yet, but I assume it will show up under BO3 add-ons when it becomes available

  • Ryumoau

    Nice! I like free themes. Hope they make the regular BO3 theme available for sale later on, since its currently only for people who preorder digitally.

  • LovekillerX

    So those news for today: level cap raised to level 49. I wanted to get at least one more day for beta. 🙁

    • Siftblade

      It was raised again?

      • LovekillerX

        Yes.

  • Guywithbrains

    So my beta is now over because it is 9 p.m. here. I already miss this game so much. But seems like my MW3 grind is starting again.

    Have fun with the last hours of Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta! (shouldn’t be hard at all)

    • Yankeephil

      They extended it so you get 24 more hours

  • Diego Diniz

    HUDGE LAG!!!

    • YoungMurf

      I agree, been playing today and I’ve had full bar and low ping but the lag is unbearable.

  • DJ3K

    Beta extended till Monday 10pm pacific time

    • FazalGaming

      really?

  • Diego Diniz

    LAG is HUDGE!!!
    IMPOSSIBLE TO play at this moment…
    Beta was Extended by The way!

  • fuckhuson

    where do I go to get the theme?

  • benscrisis

    Will the xbox one beta have all this new stuff (increased level cap, etc.) right away? Or will it be gradually added on, just like the ps4 beta

  • Maxim Korol

    Black Ops 3 Lag Edition
