UPDATE: Activision Support and Treyarch have now removed the estimate time and indicated codes will be sent “later today”…

Original story: Activision Support has updated their FAQ for the Black Ops 3 beta that begins soon for Xbox One & PC. We now have confirmation of when codes will be emailed out, and similar to the beta launch on Playstation 4, Xbox One & PC users should be expecting their download codes via email about 8 hours early or 4pm PT today to be exact. Check out the rest of the FAQ for more details..

How big is the Beta file?
To make the Beta a fun and valuable experience, we’ve packed it with a lot of content. Therefore, the file is approximately 15 GB and download times will vary based on location, server traffic, and connection speed.

What’s the difference between my Beta code that I received and my Beta token?

Beta Access codes are provided on pre-order receipts by retailers, and reserve your spot for the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Beta. Beta Access codes can be redeemed at callofduty.com/blackops3beta.

Beta Tokens will then be emailed to you from Activision on a rolling basis beginning at approximately 4:00 PM PST on August 25th for Xbox One and PC users. Beta Tokens need to be entered into the code redemption tool on the platform you have designated in the registration process, and will allow you to download the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Beta. Find out how to redeem a Beta Token.

  • If you pre purchased the game on the Xbox Live Store, will you be able to download the Beta immediately?

    • Aceshigh87

      If it’s like the PSN Store you’ll receive an email (mine was from Sony, not Treyarc / Activision) with a download link rather than a code. I assume XBL will work similar.

      • FraMarte

        No that’s wrong I preordered digitally and I’ve not recived any code, I was immediately able to join the beta

        • Aceshigh87

          I never said I received a code, I said I received a download LINK. The only codes I got were friend passes.

    • ccrows

      I’m in the same boat as you, preordered the digital version.

      My guess is that you’d already be OK since NHL 16 beta was like that (no code needed, since that of course makes sense), but who knows how Activision is gonna handle it… <_<

    • James Smith

      you are good to go, when the beta starts type in Black ops iii beta on store and it will install, only works that way through digital.

      • ccrows

        That’s what I figured, thanks man… πŸ™‚

        Thanks I had that same question.

      iv been watching gameplay of it and ive heard great things about it

      • β“Œβ“”β“‘β“‘β“˜β“”β“’β“£β’Ύβ“œβ“ŸβžŒβž‹βž

        Yeah it’s pretty awesome! Only bad thing is grenades. Can’t throw them far lol

        • Diego Diniz

          Thats a Lie! I played on PS4 for 5 days and its THE SAME as always…You will see!

          • β“Œβ“”β“‘β“‘β“˜β“”β“’β“£β’Ύβ“œβ“ŸβžŒβž‹βž

            I played only one game on PS4 so It could’ve changed. But grenades were SUPER heavy when I used a few lol

    • Neil Towson

      i buy every cod game, mostly because i loved mw1 and mw2 and me and my friends used to play together like 25 hours a day when i was younger. but i gotta say i’ve been sooo disapointed every year since then (except bo2, that was decent). really hoping treyarch pulls it off again, they usually do a pretty good job.

      • β“Œβ“”β“‘β“‘β“˜β“”β“’β“£β’Ύβ“œβ“ŸβžŒβž‹βž

        If you enjoyed BO2 then you’ll enjoy this one as well πŸ˜€

  • Jamie

    what happens if i was to pre order the game after 4pm would they still give me the code?

    • ScOott

      Just Incase you don’t get in, You get codes to give yo friends I’m putting mine on here so keep an eye out ..

  • LovekillerX

    Have a nice beta! πŸ™‚

  • RdJokr

    First thing in the morning, boot up PC and download the beta.

    Then let it download while I go do a job interview… Post-college life sucks.

    • LovekillerX

      I hope you get good PC version because last two weren’t so good as you guys probably wished…

      • RdJokr

        #InTreyarchWeTrust

        • LovekillerX

          I have heard that Treyarch does good PC versions so you’re probably in good hands. πŸ™‚

    • Afinity Kun

      exactly the same thing for me man xD but im going to stay up and wait for my code to arrive and then put it on download and go to sleep xD

  • Ryumoau

    I wonder if the Xbox One/PC beta will start out with all 4 maps and Safeguard, or will they do it in steps like the ps4 version.
    I’m also curious if they will have already taken feedback from the ps4 beta and implimented in the this week’s beta. That would be pretty cool.

    • LovekillerX

      It won’t start from where PS4 beta ended, it will come in same cycle as PS4 beta did. David Vonderhaar said that in Twitter according to Reddit.

      • Ryumoau

        oh i see, thanks.

  • Will the beta start globally at the exact same time or will it start at midnight at all the time zone respectively?

    • the big dirtty

      I believe PS4 was live when the codes shipped out. Twitch was rolling with BO3 videos last Tuesday night.

      I’d assume we are good to go once the DL in complete.

      Unless anyone else knows otherwise…

  • Stefan Lang

    Ready af ????? I played like 2 hours total on the PS4 I hated the controller.

  • Jake Campagna

    What times is 4pm PT in eastern time?

    • the big dirtty

      Surprised you don’t know time zones yet, you seem to be at least in HS based on your pic.

      7pm Eastern.

  • RSM

    wait. is it 12pm bst today or tomorrow because if its for tomorrow, ill only be able to start playing at night

  • ScOott

    Wahoo .. I hope I don’t waste a day downloading it again.. Which I will :-/ .. Il be able to play the next day (sigh) ..

    • SoulTaker

      Xbox and PC have much higher download speeds man. πŸ™‚

      • ScOott

        It might only take half a day instead of a day then πŸ˜€

      • Xecho

        really depends on your internet tho pally

        • SoulTaker

          True but if you have any decent internet (15mbps and up) you should be able to download it in maybe 3 hours. πŸ™‚

  • dadkadk

    I played the beta on PS4 and now also on my Xbox One. Got both codes for free πŸ™‚

    • darkonex

      Hook me up yo. I played on my PS4 and had some issues with lag last 2 days so curious to see how the XB1 version holds up.

  • ccrows

    4PM PST start time today.

    Let’s GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!… πŸ™‚

    • Guywithbrains

      Are you trying the beta first time or did you have a chance to play it already on Playstation 4?

      • ccrows

        Yeah I only have the XB1 for now.

        I might be getting a PS4 too, if there’s a good BF sale this year…

        • Guywithbrains

          The beta is totally worth waiting. Everything is so smooth and especially fun. However, let’s hope Xbox guys won’t have so much matchmaking issues or lag than we did.

          Have fun and don’t forget to come here and tell us if you like the beta or not. Do you have any expectations of the beta?

          • ccrows

            “Do you have any expectations of the beta?”

            The only stuff I’m concerned about are Rejack, Black Hat, and the stun/concussion spam. (along with the obvious TTK and lag)

            I know it’s a beta, but so hopefully that stuff stays in the beta. Other than that I loved BO1 and BO2, so my goal with the beta (for now) is to have fun… πŸ™‚

          • Baine

            Expectations is anything but Advanced Warfail πŸ™‚ lol

    • Vicsupreme

      Actually that’s just when the beta tokens get rolled out, not when the beta opens

      • ccrows

        I hate to credit TMartn (check his latest YT vid), but that’s when you are going to be able to start downloading it, which is going to take a while anyway since the servers are going to be hammered…

        • Vicsupreme

          But the beta will not be playable at 4 pst, just able to download

  • Kevin

    I’m running an nvidia geforce gt 650m, intel core i7-3632QM CPU 2.20GHZ and It’s an acer aspire v3-771g laptop. This should run pretty well with low minimum settings right? A decent 30-40 fps if It’s well optimized.

    • the big dirtty

      Do you FaZe? pew pew pew

      • Kevin

        Huh? xD lol yes I pew pew don’t know what FaZe is tho

        • the big dirtty

          FaZe is a totally awesome super duper pro team thats quickscopes and everyone who is 12 and under gets boners for them. Its like totally the coolest thing ever…if you liked boys.

          But it seems that you dont lol.

          Idk the answer to your question, but hopefully here someone does!

          pew pew pew

          • Kevin

            Lol oh I used to somewhat quickscope but kind of sucked at it in Black ops 1 xD

          • I noticed their channels when I was searching for bo3 videos.. wow such bunch of screaming tw4ts…

          • the big dirtty

            yea their life consists of crying until the get quad feeds, then screaming like girls when they get one. then their mom makes lunchy for them and the cycle repeats. its a wonderful thing!!

          • KoD Phazz

            Not sure if serious. If so, lol you’re dumb. If not, get funnier.

          • the big dirtty

            You’re the dumb one if you can’t tell I was 100% serious.

            Looks like we have a FaZe up and comer…..

            BTW there is no K in COD

    • Niall McCloskey

      I don’t have a code :'( is there ANY chance if you get a spare one, as the PS4 users got 3 emailed to them, 1 for themselves and 2 for friends you may consider maybe sending me a spare one, thank you very much if you do πŸ™‚

    • ApoX

      That won’t cut it im affraid..

  • ShortWaveKmoT

    I preordered bo3 twice from 2 retailers so if its true that they give you 2 friends codes plus my own code than you guys should check back at 4pm pt or 6pm cst. Ill post the codes on here.

  • So your are getting 3 beta tokens 1 for me en 2 for my friends right?

    • ScOott

      Yes

  • DJ3K

    Even with all the lag and bs, still had alot of fun with the beta. Enjoy XB1/PC players.

    • Baine

      would you say this is a completely new game or just a dumbed down version of Advanced Warfare?

      • -El_Greeko-

        It has nothing to do with Advanced Warfare. As a PC player, I therely enjoyed the BETA on PS4 (I own one).

        It’s BO2 with tighter gameplay, especially the gunplay. It feels better than any other CoD after MW2/BO.

        + You have a booster. I would recommend it.

        • Andrew VanRysseghem

          Anything has to better than ghosts and aw on PC. I still play bo2 on PC. I hate having frame caps. Hopefully there isn’t one on bo3. 90fps is unacceptable on PC (ghosts and AW). I want my 144. Glad to hear you enjoyed it on ps4.

          • Someren

            What i heard is that it will have a fps cap of 200 the same as in black ops 2 so it wont really be a problem for anyone treyarch is usually good at making pc ports

          • Andrew VanRysseghem

            I’m fine with 200. Thanks for the info. My fingers are crossed its true.

      • Nellyz -SB

        Nothing to do with advance warfare. Great experience in beta with the exception of the lag issues on Sunday and the trapping on Monday but honestly took some getting use to but I enjoyed it have fun xb1 and oc users

      • Jesus CalderΓ³n

        Completely different

    • -El_Greeko-

      Thanks.

    • Stealth_Valtsu

      Glad you had fun too, I didn’t have problems with lag or any bs, also “Enjoy XB1/PC players” πŸ™‚

      • -El_Greeko-

        I actually did experience some connectivity issues from Treyarch’s/Activision’s end. Sure it was annoying, but it’s a BETA so I didn’t really mind.

        • remnant

          they did have server issues so thats what the lag may have been from

          • Retro riq swag

            I think you have to wait until the 26th but you have the codes now

      • Kyle

        Why haven’t my code come though on Xbox one please

        • Ben DrummerLad Paice

          Mine neither man

            Same with me! Haven’t gotten it yet, 50 minutes already. I notice the COD forums are also extremely slow.

          • Poop

            Are we supposed to wait until the actual launch of the beta

        • Conzy

          neither has mine??

          • Christian Rodriguez

            I know how to fix it bro

          • Tommy Richardson

            Do we have to wait till midnight you think?

          • Brian Todd

            No, Microsoft/Xbox and Treyarch admitted to having a problem. It was intended to work as soon as you got the code. It’s already been down for 6 or 7 hours, so not sure how they will handle it when it finally works.

          • Tommy Richardson

            I just foind it on youtube that it you try and redeem it on the Microsoft website after selecting Brazil it works

          • Christian Rodriguez

            I know how to fix it

          • Chris Kenney

            How!!!!

          • Christian Rodriguez

            If I tell u would u give me a code ?

          • Chris Kenney

          • Chris Kenney

            ….

          • Christian Rodriguez

            I’ll give u the link to get your code

          • Christian Rodriguez

            Or to fix your problem

          • Tommy Richardson

            Look on youtube. You have to select brazil on the Microsoft website and it should make your cose work. Worked for me. Its on youtube though

          • Chris Kenney

            You have xbox account add me and join my party DEADman PANDS

    • RedDread

      Thanks

    • jt3z

      • Freeze

        they nerfed lol

        • Koolz

      It wouldn’t be a CoD game without bullshit

  • Mech Etait

    Could someone please help me out and give me a PC Beta code?

    • OMG its AliA

      JUST PRE ORDER!!!!

  • J Lopez

    Now PS4 beta was a success lets see how it rolls on the Xbox/PC. πŸ˜€ HYPPEEDD

    • Diego Diniz

      Sucess??? Lag Lag Lag and more Lag…

      • Freeze

        Its success if they figure out the problem. better than on day 1

      • Yankeephil

        I keep hearing there was a bunch of lag but I only experienced game breaking lag in one game. The rest was smooth

        • Diego Diniz

          IDK, I live in Brazil, so, maybe because of server distance…I experienced A LOT of Lag…

      • J Lopez

        Hmmm That must have been an issue on your end or maybe your skill blaming Lag…??? I was playing with no issues other than when they announced that their will be “Lag due to server maintenance”

        • Diego Diniz

          I always been on FIRST PLACE In all lobbies that I played! Here In Brazil we suffered with HUDGE LAG on weekend. “Skill Blaming Lag”…here is me on a Usual gameplay:

  • Haydn

    Its great, Im gonna go into the beta against real noobs πŸ˜›

  • Andrew Kev-Oh Hall

    So, I pre-ordered Black Ops 3 a while back ago and I lost my reciept with the beta code on it. What do I do?

    • daHolby

      Wait (and hope) they open the beta up for everyone in a day or two. Maybe see if a friend has an extra? Beg on reddit? Preorder again? Just some thoughts.

    • Kurt Angle

      Try to ask GameStop or wherever you preordered it from for another one if you haven’t redeemed it.
      Or pre order the game from Amazon, receive the code and cancel the pre order. Amazon doesn’t charge until dispatched.

    • Baine

      have you tried contacting the place you preordered from? I know at gamestop (at least at the one i go to) they are pretty chill and would just give you another one.

  • deathbat92

    Why the fuck do you have to pre order the game to play the beta? didn’t do that with WAW, don’t even know if i want the game, this would’ve helped me decide

    • Yankeephil

      It’ll most likely be open to all XB and PC gamers on Friday

  • Freeze

    Do you get tokens from steam pre-order?

    • Primey_

      You don’t need a token for the pc beta. If you pre-ordered from steam the beta will appear automatically in your steam library

      https://twitter.com/pcdev/status/635220310783082496

      • Freeze

        ahh, I wanted one for my friend thats all

        • Yankeephil

          They gave out 2 friends tokens with the digital pre-order on PSN so they might do the same on PC.

  • Freeze

    After playing a crap tron of the PS4 beta, I really want to see how it plays on pc, because FOV increase and higher fps makes it a totallyt different game.

    • Freeze

      For instance the AN94 on BO2 is so much better at 120+ fps than it is with 60, but some guns are worse. We wil see.

      • -El_Greeko-

        Ye, they should tie all their guns at 200fps and lock the game at that framerate.

        • Freeze

          Yeah but not everyone can reach that, meaning others would have awkward and ususally slower fire rates. And personally I dont want to give up MSAA for extra frames, 120 is is good enough

          • Tsaki

            BO3 doesn’t have frame-rounding.

          • Freeze

            OH? That’s confirmed? Oh well then :3

          • Mark Wiggie

            No b’s dying around corners either, the net code is finally fixed. Hope bdobbins is happy

          • Freeze

            Well on ps4 I did because the bullet penetration is wonky

          • Tsaki

            Well I don’t think that Treyarch has come out and made a statement out of it but Drift0r asked the developers and they told him that it’s gone.

          • -El_Greeko-

            Not specifically. It depends on the RPM of the gun.

            I saw Tsaki’s comment. If it is true, that’s a huge step up for CoD on PC.

          • Diego Diniz

            Sorry my Bad English cause im Brazilian, but can you teach me What AA is better to reach 120 FPS??? I have a GTX 760 and a 144hz Monitor.

      • PuddingAuxRais1ns

        That was due to frame-rounding. One of the devs told Drift0r a few months back that BO3 doesn’t suffer with frame-rounding, so weapon performance sjhould be 100% consistent regardless of frame rate.

        • Ben

          I’m pretty sure they can’t fix that, since it’s an issue specified to their engine’s base which is iD3, and the problem is related to frame-based animations.

  • Primey_

    PC players won’t need to wait for a Token:

    https://twitter.com/pcdev/status/635220310783082496

    • Yankeephil

      You’re dumb, its the same as PSN and XBL, if you ordered digitally you don’t need a “token” and if you pre-ordered the physical edition then the token will be e-mailed

  • Luke

    1 question. How do I get my beta code if I preordered the game on the Xbox store? Will it go to the email linked to my Xbox profile?

    • Yankeephil

      Digital pre-orders do not need codes, when it’s available you should be able to search for it and download, on PSN we got a notification saying it was available for download

      • Luke

        Sweet, thanks!

  • OMG its AliA

    What time will ppl in UK get the code

    • ScOott

      Stop being an AliA big noob, you should know these things, you are ALiA after all πŸ™‚

      • Freeze

        Surprised his account hasnt been taken down. My SHG one did. AndI was actually supporting their product

        • ScOott

          Lmao! That was you! Brilliant! Yh I’m suprised to.. You was going over the top tho, I remember some people thinking you was for real lol..

          • OMG its AliA

            BOYYSS TEELLL ME!! GUNNA MAKE MORE VIDEOS FOR MY FELLOW ALI A ARMY

          • FazalGaming

            Big Plays!

    • Primey_

      From 12am tuesday onwards.

  • -El_Greeko-

    I got a question for the PC players. Do any of you have the the BETA on your Steam library? I’ve activated my key on their website and got the confirmation on the website, but I did not get any information other than that. And I don’t have the game’s BETA on my Steam library.

    I’m assuming should be there by tomorrow.

    • Primey_

      If you pre-ordered somewhere other than steam then you need a token which they’ll send out at 4pm pt. You redeem that token for it to appear in your library.

      If you pre-ordered on steam the beta will appear in your library when it begins

      • -El_Greeko-

        I didn’t buy it on Steam.

        They’ll send that out via e-mail at 4pm PST?

        Thanks for the info BTW.

  • FraMarte

    Anyone can give me a friend code for One/PC when it goes out?
    Thank you guys

  • Louis Mulcahy

    How does it work when you digitally preorder as I
    didnt get a code

    • FraMarte

      Digital preorders don’t need codes, you’ll be able to download it from the store when it goes out

  • Diego Diniz

    Please Guys, give me a PC Beta Code. Anyone can give me a friend Code???

    • FazalGaming

      Me too!

  • Umpaloompa360

    If I get three beta codes like everyone is saying you get, then I will be posting 2 of them on this article 10 mins apart from each-other around 5:00pm MST.

    • FazalGaming

      Thanks man! Your the best!

    • Umpaloompa360

      *they will be for the xbox one

  • Wish I had a beta code, I’d try it out to kill time.

  • Destine Roberts

    Does anyone know if people who buy the pre order digitally if they also recieve a code or not?

    • Siftblade

      No need for a code if digital.

      • Destine Roberts

        Thanks

  • Tuff2beU

    Game was pretty dang fun for me just need to do something about rejack a little annoying in my opinion if you didn’t get killed by the guy that rejacked you most likely got kicked by his teammate when you were waiting to kill him again. M8 shoots a little fast too but not super op because the XR-2 was good enough to compete with it.

  • Seytric

    Does this mean we can play before midnight or just download it before midnight?

    • TheMarkofRay

      Play assuming you’re not using 3G cellphone internet, should be 3-5 hours tops to download

  • Virnios

    Would play this on the PC, sucks my parents are saving money to move. Can’t pre-order. Have fun with the beta everyone! πŸ™‚

    • FIRESTARYA

      You want a code? Msg me.

    • FIRESTARYA

      You want a code, Msg me on Twitter @SyphWildfire

    • My Info

      you know you can get the code from gamestop by just putting $5 down for the game?

    • Lol

      Lol yeah because 5 bucks will save them a ton enough to pick a spot under the freeway.

  • Slothigans

    Probably a dumb question, but the beta token will be sent to our Xbox live emails?

    • Stefan Lang

      Whatever email you used for callofduty.com

      • Slothigans

        Cool. Thanks!

  • Genaro IbaΓ±ez

    What time is in Mexico Df? or Usa Tx?

  • Jeovanni Mendez Valencia

    Will the beta be free on xbox one or do you need to pre-order?

    • burrgee

      Preorder of amazon, get the code then type it into callofduty.com then cancel your pre order if you dont want to buy it yet.

      • Jeovanni Mendez Valencia

        Ya i know but isnt it coming out tommorow for free

        • Guest

          Just because PS4 did it does not mean Xbox and PC will do it.. your best bet is to pre-order to guarantee yourself a spot in the beta.

    • Yankeephil

      There’s a good chance it’ll be free Friday morning for all

      • Jeovanni Mendez Valencia

        I hope so

    • TheMarkofRay

      They’ll probably give two free XB1 codes for friends like they did for PS4. Just wait, people will probably give away codes on here later tonight

      • burrgee

        If they do il give away my codes on here later.

  • Robert

    For us that Bought the game digitally and dont need codes where do we DL the cleint any ideas ?

    • jdc

      you will have to search for it in the game store.

  • burrgee

    Im confused, so what time exactaly can i download it and start playing? I live in britian.

    • nobody knows.. especially when you check the update, which saying they removed the official time and current statement is ‘later today’…

  • Robert

    where do we DL if we ordered digitally cause we do not get any codes ?

    • burrgee

      The store i think.

  • yanivsitel

    i preordered the game 12 hours ago and i didnt get any email with a code im from israel, anyonw know what should i do ?

  • Blood

    Wish I could get the beta have fun everyone

  • Kyle Smith

    Anyone got a spare code I can have if so message me on Xbox Zz KyzeR zz it would mean a lot.

  • Brad

    Who’s bright idea was it to allow scrubs to steal people’s hard earned streaks?

  • Sumuddy

    i ordered mine on PC “steam” and i never received a code? atleast i dont think i did, where would i check to see if i had got it?

    • XxALv3SxX

      • Dr. Salim

        Already played it.

    • the big dirtty

      haha jab jab. There have been a couple patches over the week so we are actually getting a better version.

      BTW i played it all week on PS4 now I get to enjoy it on a real console with a real controller built for a man.

      So have fun watching it on Twitch all week

      • Dr. Salim

        Don’t really need to watch on Twitch if we already played it…..

        • the big dirtty

          Well shit, you don’t even need to buy the game in Nov either if you already played it.

          So get ready for COD Ghosts 2 beta man yea!! PS4 early exclusivity FTW!!

          • Dr. Salim

            But you said you are playing it also so why get the game also?

          • the big dirtty

            Because I enjoy the game also, that is why I will get it also.

          • Dr. Salim

            Who said I didn’t enjoy it?

          • the big dirtty

            I don’t know, who did?

    • burrgee

      Why do you have to be that little bitch? Get yourself a life kid.

  • NRG

    What about the digital pre orders?

    • XxALv3SxX

      The digital edition is just an excuse to make you give them all yoir money

  • Alex Funston

    Will the beta eventually be open for PC/XB1 like ps4?

    • the big dirtty

      Probably yes

      • Mark Wiggie

        Yes but I worry that it’s ps4 exclusive

        • the big dirtty

          Not sure – there were server issues so they extended it a day. Wouldn’t surprise me either way – we’ll find out soon.

  • Kyle Soule

    Where do I sign up?

    • burrgee

      Wat you mean?

      • Kyle Soule

        For a beta code.

        • burrgee

          You have to pre order it from retailer, or you dont need a code if you pre order it from the xbox store.

          • Kyle Soule

            Oh I was just kidding haha but thanks anyways.

  • NRG

    Does the beta also come out for digital pre orders at the same time?

    • burrgee

      Yeah think so

  • burrgee

    If they give any free codes like they did with ps4 players, il give them away on this site later if anyone wants one

    • AmazingAdam

      yeah if you’re offering mate, don’t be scared to send one over

  • Diego Diniz

    That means the Beta will start TODAY or just the delivery of the beta codes???

    • ScOott

      Soon as you get your beta code, and you downloaded it, you can play ..

      • Diego Diniz

        Thanks!

  • The7Reaper

    Even with its flaws I still had more fun on an unfished game than I did with AW lol but I can’t wait till November to try out zombies now and the campaign

    • The7Reaper

      Also have fun Xbox and PC players, and be sure to remember it’s a beta not a finished and polished demo.

  • burrgee

    2 hours and 50 mins to go

    • Diego Diniz

      its 4PM…not 2PM!

      • pipo134

        1 hour and 48 minutes left πŸ˜‰

  • Diego Diniz

    I played for 5 days on PS4 and I can tell:
    The Game is very good, but THE HUDGE LAG on Friday/Saturday/Sunday RUINNED the Game.
    All day LAG!

    • Guywithbrains

      Call of Duty: Lag Ops 3. Okay kidding but seriously the lag was pretty bad but after all game fun and I would rate it 9/10.

      • Diego Diniz

        Me too. The Game is good. I really like Reaper Specialist.
        I bought on PC already and I will test it.
        But, FINGERS CROSSED to have NO LAG on PC!

        • Guywithbrains

          Reaper and his Scythe is my favorite and close second is Outrider with Sparrow. πŸ˜›

          • Diego Diniz

            Scythe, Sparrow and Annihilator are the BESTS! No Doubt…
            And for Noobs and Spawn Trappers: War Machine(NoobTube) and H.I.V.E

  • Pottsy52

    did anyone get the email yet?????

    • Slothigans

      It’s not 4 pm yet.

      • Pottsy52

        its 4:27 for me

        • Slothigans

          4 pm pacific time

        • 4 PT, which is like 8isj I think.

          But they said later today so maybe even further.

  • TROLL TIDE

    Can’t lie had so much fun with the ps4 beta. can’t remember the last time I was raging at the tv because of some bs. Xbox and pc players you will love how fun the specialist characters are I guarantee. The maps are so fluid where you can have control. The spawns were a bit wonky but I’m sure you all will have a blast. Add me on xbox if anyone wants to party up. Cpt Bax

  • Wow, why the sudden change ?

  • For anyone who has already played the beta, how is the wall running? Am I supposed to keep my moving thumb stick pointed to the wall or is it like titanfall were you just run and jump onto a wall ?

    • Guywithbrains

      Just jump towards wall and then press thumb stick forward.

      • So it’s like titanfall?

        • Dr. Salim

          Prepare to fall a lot.

  • Hola holaaas

    Well, my parents are saving money to my brother in jail… anyway enjoy the beta, i will keep seeing gameplays on YT

    • Slothigans

      All you need is five dollars to pre order. Don’t tell me you don’t have five dollars.

      • the big dirtty

        His brother stole it

    • ” hurr durr sad me, let’s make a story so someone will give me a 5$ code that I can get the money back from hurr durr ”

      Come on kid, just put down 5 fucking dollars, get your code, then cancel your preorder after the beta for your money back.

      It’s that easy

  • Luis

    If I pre ordered black ops 3 on Xbox store am gonna still need a code?

    • Dr. Salim

      No

      • Luis

        Thank you

  • Acadius Alexander

    I had a blast playing the beta on my PS4 and look forward to playing it with my friends on my Xbox One. I honestly went into the beta with a negative frame of mind but within minutes, I found it more “grounded”. Though, I’ll admit that I kept trying to boost jump like I do in Advanced Warfare but that quickly diminished within a couple of matches.
    Happy Gaming. ?

  • Group_935

    Have fun Xbox and PC gamers!

  • burrgee

    Love to see all the positive comments for this game,

  • coyote

    Hey i put the code in for the code for the beta but i havent got my xbox redemption code

    • Nick Finger

      You won’t until 4PM California Time.

  • skeetshootin

    Enjoy the crappy game xbox users, maybe next years COD can have more fake guns, super powers, and pokemon…..

    • Nick Finger

      Go somewhere else. This CoD Game has been the most fun I had within 2 years of Ghosts and AW.

      • skeetshootin

        Nah im good, and thats great, you probably like destiny, halo, and all that other fake bull……lets be honest you probably own pokemon cards.

        • What’s wrong with a game being fake? Well that’s why it’s called a “game”, it’s meant to be fake, realistic, or what ever the developers decide to add. Just face the facts, you’re a hater.

          • skeetshootin

            Wow did you figure that out all on your own? I really cant be more transparent. Why not use real guns? M4? Sig MCX? No we get man o war, hvk30? The guns look retarded, like they were built from legos, and if youre happy wih that then you can go fuck yourself.

          • Xerolh

            Lol somebody’s angry. It’s okay man it’s just a game.

          • Well being happy doesn’t affect anyone, but your bullshit does, so gtfo.

          • skeetshootin

            Oh stop it boo! Why u mad boo?

          • Damn, you just gave proof your mad. Look at your first comment πŸ˜‰

          • skeetshootin

            Haha! Im not mad, just disappointed, really wish we could get the real guns again, no super powers, etc….

      • burrgee

        Dont listen to him hes just trying to get a reaction out of people cuz he has nothing else better to do.

    • burrgee

      Go jerk off in to your mouth you dimebag.

      • skeetshootin

        No

  • Josh Hutchens

    How do you get the beta if you pre order off the xbox

    • Nick Finger

      Your automatically enrolled. You’ll get a Message from M$ in your message telling you the Beta is live for you to download without a code needed.

      • Josh Hutchens

        Ok thanks

        • Nick Finger

          No Problem, Bud.

  • coyote

    I still havent got the code yet to put in the xbox

    • Nick Finger

      You won’t until 4PM California Time.

  • Azpic

    if i pre ordered from xbox store were will i get code? email ?

  • xXx69xXxDaNkW33DSmOkErxXx69xXx

    I was definitely not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. The last time I played a CoD game and enjoyed it was the original Blops. Advanced Warfare was a step in the right direction, but something about it turned me off. This games movement system felt clunky at first, but it quickly grew on me. It takes getting used to, but once you do it feels very elegant. Not too quick, and not too slow. You can pull of some really cool moves too and it all feels very smooth. If Advanced Warfares movement system is a rich dark chocolate, then BLOPS is a nice creamy mousse. If it weren’t for Fallout 4, this would be a Day 1 buy for me. It still might be if I’m feeling frisky.

  • HoLtttz

    Will the PC beta have controller use?

    • Scotty K

      who in their right mind would play a PC shooter with a controller ?

      • Andrew VanRysseghem

        Its probably all the people that complain about cheaters when nobody is cheating

  • Sleeping Knights #

    im so glad i have both xbone and ps4. I get to play double the time lol

  • HELP NEEDED

    What if you pre ordered the game digitally then do you still get the beta token via email or is it in the store for you to download?

    • Dr. Salim

      In the store

  • Joey Shields

    Can somebody explain the process to me? I preordered the game through the xbox store and i dont know where to find the beta code

    • Dr. Salim

      You don’t need a code

    • burrgee

      Ms will msg you at 4pm telling you its available to download, you dont need a code.

      • Joey Shields

        i didnt get a message on xbox or an email

        • burrgee

          I just got mine email with 3 codes and now they wont work, its a joke. Its happening to alot of people

  • Terrence Grizzly Wells

    I borrowed my friends PS4 since he is out of town and I loved the Beta and now I will have it with my XBONE. Hope it is smooth as it was on PS4.

  • spartanelite

    Code’s will we get multiple

  • Russell Gasper

    I preordered the game at GameStop and redeemed my code a few weeks ago. I hadn’t received an email yet and it’s 4:17 central time. Have any of u guys done the same and are able to download the beta?? I’ve searched black ops 3 beta on the Xbox store and nothing shows up except to purchase the game

    • Slothigans

      Pacific time.

      • Russell Gasper

        Thanks man was getting worried lol thought it said eastern time.

    • Bob

      They are still being handed out.

      • the big dirtty

        Is this lawsuit Bob?

    • the big dirtty

      wait until after 6pm Central. Check you junk email also. I had mine come in just after 6 pm CST on PS4 last week but i didnt see it until the next day because it was in my junk folder. You will get it along with 2 extra codes for friends.

      • Russell Gasper

        Ok wil do. How did you like it? I haven’t liked CoD since BO1 really so I’m hoping this will bring me back. By the way your pic is awesome. Richthofen FTW

        • the big dirtty

          I was iffy day one. Then as time went on, I really really enjoyed it. To me, the guns feel like BO1.

          If you are used to stock on ARs and toughness or no flinching then you will have to adjust to that. There is no toughness perk so you will flinch and stock basically adds minimal mobility while ADS-ing.

          You can get into a lot of trouble thrusting around and wallrunning everywhere but it works great i think and it flows well.

          I hate AW – this is not like AW. Its a lot of fun man.

          Hell yes Richtofen FTW!

    • darren

      It starts at 4 p.m. PACIFIC TIME. When it is 4:00 THERE, then they will start letting people download. As far as I know, no one has been able to start the beta yet. I haven’t heard of anyone yet.

  • adolf shitler

    someone tell me when its live

  • Prostidude

    When you about to play the BO3 beta on XBone but it “disconnects”

    • This is just getting old. -_-

    • the big dirtty

      It did plenty of that on PS4, so I expect it will on XB1 since it is a Beta. Whats ur point Prostidude?

  • Dmv soldier

    Hope they let us play the beta later today ?

  • shodgfd

    the are playing it already lol https://steamdb.info/app/311210/

    • Lmao! Eight people online!

      • Tarren

        6 now xD

  • Nice! Might be able to play the beta tonight!

  • HtRk

    wiil i still be ble to play the beta if i got it of the marketplace

    • Dr. Salim

      Yes

    • the big dirtty

      Don’t listen to Dr. Salim – he has no clue what he is talking about. The answer is yes. Yes you will.

  • R0987

    Am i the only one who thinks that the PC beta should be open to all seeing how low the population is of the pc cod community.

    • brian castillo 6

      Yeah that’s a good idea

      • mrwizard420

        ye i hope they make it open cause i want to test it and see if i like it and if my pc will run it before i go buy it

    • FunkyIntelligence

      Well, Treyarch eventually made the PS4 beta public so maybe Xbox One and PC users will get that too.

  • kushinakingcloud10

    I had fun why it lasted it… but it also feels good to have both?

  • brian castillo 6

    So I guess too download from steam i need to pay full price?? I only want to try the beta..

    • Unless you have a beta code, yes. You can pre-order the game on Amazon, then cancel your order to get a beta code. πŸ˜‰

      • brian castillo 6

        But doesn’t it come with 3?? I don’t get this code thing

  • KokiriNative

    So what time do they get released for central time?

    • 6pm.

      • KokiriNative

        What about the beta? Is it 11pm or midnight? And thank you! πŸ™‚

        • I believe that once you have the code you can play. The beta is starting early it seems!

          • KokiriNative

            Oh shoot! Haha and do you have a Xbox one? We can party up lolz

          • I only have a beta code for PC. Sorry about that… :/

          • brian castillo 6

            Can you send me a token?

          • How?

  • Allan

    has anyone had the tokens emailed to them yet? getting a little nervous mine hasn’t come yet.

    • It’s not 4pm pt yet…

      • Allan

        im in the uk so do you know what time they get sent out over here?

        • Not sure…

        • zap119

          allan u get the beta at 12:00 AM ur time… sorry lol i feel bad for u, here in the US, everybody either gets it at 6:00-8:00 PM around that time

          • Allan

            i know it’s very late, i’m just glad i have tomorrow booked off work so i can play all night.

    • the big dirtty

      Did you read the article? 4pm PST is in the future…hasnt happened yet. Wait an hour an 10 minutes and then we are at 4pm PST.

      Then keep an eye out

      • Allan

        so i’m guessing it’ll be around midnight in the uk then.

        • the big dirtty

          in 1 hour from now it’s 4pm pst

    • First, grammar check, second of all, how are you planning to get this other code? You can only have one code per email. I’m trying my best to understand what you just said, let me know if you need anything else. Wow, even dolan is easier to read than this.

      • Becca Louise Pomeroy

        Sorry about grammer.
        My husband forgot to sign out of his email account, so when I put mine in went to his email instead of mine just Need to know I’f I can still play it thank u

        • You’ll need a new beta code. Only the account that is associated with his email will be able to play as far as I’m aware.

          • Becca Louise Pomeroy

            Can’t I just use one of the friend tokens ? Also how would I get a new beta code.

    • betahelper

      yes you will get two extra codes for you friends

  • spartanelite

    So about what time are supposed to get them and in our emails right?

  • zap119

    I have a question, when i recieve the email for the beta, after i redeem the beta code on the xbox marketplace store will i be able to play the beta immediately or i have to wait?

  • Harley

  • Allan

    • Jacob tyree

      ACTIVISION sent me ps4 codes hope it doesn’t happen to you I’m dumbfounded on what to do….

      • Allan

        if you go onto the call of duty website and log in it gives you the codes but just tryed the 3 i got and none of the work, well and truly pissed off

        • Jacob tyree

          Yes none worked for me either I’m pissed off man

          • Allan

            got an error message now on the website so can’t even keep trying them now

  • Russell Gasper

    Haven’t gotten my code yet either. Getting a little edgy as I don’t trust this digital shit.

  • Sam Cuthbert

    anyone else get codes for ps4 instead of xbox?

  • brian castillo 6

    any pc codes?

  • Jacob tyree

    Anybody else get ps4 codes instead of Xbox one codes?

    • Russell Gasper

      Maybe try going to the beta site and redeem your code again? Idk man this is bs

  • Russell Gasper

    No code yet, pulled up the beta in Xbox store and it says unavailable(where it would normally show price and let you click on it to download)

  • Fure Uwamu

    Anyone got any codes to share?

  • Chris

    Anybody else having trouble receiving an email for the token for xbox one?

    • RED M3NAC3

      I haven’t even got mine yet

  • Sam Cuthbert

    any one got a freind code i could have as the morons have sent me ps4 codes..many thanks in advance

    • Dave Sib

      If its 25 digits its an xbox code. Some are incorrectly labelled as PS4 for some reason

  • adolf shitler

    on the call of duty site it says that the beta for xbone/pc is now live,still haven’t got my damn token

    • Russell Gasper

      Yea I went there and clicked on “Already redeemed a code? Check the status page for more details” and it said an error occurred. Visit the activision support page. Clicked on that and it says Site is down for Maintainance. AHH!

      • Jacob tyree

        Something fucked up and shit is bugging out on Xbox of course just our luck ps4 runs smoothly getting it downloaded since they are exclusive to it this year but Us Xbox one of course we get shit end of stick

        • Russell Gasper

          Exactly! My codes aren’t working and activision support is down for maintainance. How convienient!

    • Edge

      Just got mine…code doesnt even work

  • Cory Goble

    Havent received and email yet πŸ™ Also on COD’s homepage it says the beta is now live on pc and one… although its not supposed to be live until tomorrow?

    • Ben DrummerLad Paice

      Same as me

      • Cory Goble

        It came but now the codes arent working.. maybe the game hasnt been loaded to the store yet or something?

  • Edge

    My code doesnt work

    • Anonymous

      same here it says “Try again in a while, or contact the code provider for more info.”

  • Scraappyy

    my codes still havent come by email yet whats heppening??

    • MagzClassical

      it will take about 6 hours for ALL codes to be delivered, any time now for all of us πŸ™‚

      • Edge

        Just got mine and it doesnt work

  • Russell Gasper

    Multi million dollar company and they can’t even do one simple thing without f&cking it up.

    • MagzClassical

      it will take a little while to send out ALL the codes, Give it time, its only been 45 minutes.

  • Anthony Castro

    >Sign in as Xbox One user
    >Redeem Xbox One codes
    >Gets PS4 codes
    Fucking serious?

  • Felty

    To everyone saying they got PS4 codes, chill out for a minute and breathe. They obviously messed something up but I am fairly certain they are XB1 codes because they are 25 characters long like all Xbox codes. Also the site keep crashing on me probably because so many people are trying to redeem or complain all at the same time. The beta is not scheduled to come out until tomorrow. Yes it says the beta is live for the XB1 and PC but it also said that the PS4 beta was now open to everyone when it’s really closed now officially. Rest easy, it might take a few hours or maybe even til tomorrow but you will get to play it.

    • StayHumble

      yeah i havnt got anything but im waiting patiently lol

    • Anthony Castro

      I tried redeeming said “xbox one” code and all I got was “We couldn’t find your code”. Yea…

    • Jacob tyree

      Xbox gamers are live on twitch playing as we speak… Why’d it work for them

  • Michael

    Still waiting on mine

  • Ryan Drescher

    Help please how do I get my token on Xbox Ive tried all I know and am at an end what do I do

    • MagzClassical

      Wait, you will get an Email with your code by 3AM EST.

      • Ryan Drescher

        That Is Crap.

  • adolf shitler

    ok got mine,going to post two extra ones now

  • XxALv3SxX

    Still waiting???

  • forgotten games

    Im waiting. I heard some people got PS4 TOKENS

    • Anthony Castro

      yup can confirm.

      • Edge

        How do you know if it is a ps4 token..mine doesnt even say which one its for

        • Anthony Castro

          When I redeemed the code it sent me to the page where it gives you your token and 2 others (the one you use on your console) and it says “to take part on the black ops 3 PS4 beta”..

  • forgotten games

    Who are Xbox beta people…

  • adolf shitler

    G9YF3-MFYVR-7GJJD-VGPQ7-74QWZ okay first person to put it in gets it πŸ™‚

  • Nathan Wallis

    yep

  • Magzclassical

    Im a Steam Person πŸ˜›

  • Magzclassical

    I wish that worked for Steam or I wouldve gotten it xD

  • adolf shitler

    MKG9C-T26YW-W7CMK-JGYTX-H446Z last one,enjoy πŸ™‚

  • forgotten games

    Eh, I was typing your code in and decided to be generous

  • Nathan Wallis

    so how long do you think we will have to wait for our codes?

  • Niic Hampton

    I hate society.

  • forgotten games

    Maybe the people who preordered earliest get their email earliest?

  • forgotten games

    Did anyone take those codes?

  • StayHumble

    i tried said we couldnt find your code

    • Anthony Castro

      Same here. And it said it gave me PS4 codes even though I specified Xbox one…

  • Kobi

    I have my Xbox beta tokens but the redeem codes aren’t working

  • Nathan Wallis

    what are the tokens

  • forgotten games

    The token is just the code

  • Magzclassical

    the codes

  • forgotten games

    The 25-char code

  • Joe Sweeney

    I live in the UK so what time is beta for us?

  • Nathan Wallis

    oh right cheers

  • Cory Goble

    So my codes came however I just tried using all 3 that it sends, (yours + two for friends) and none of them are working. Anyone having same issue? Maybe they wont work until 12 : /?

    • Anthony Castro

      Your not the only one. Hopefully it gets resolved.

  • forgotten games

    It should be going on now for everybody. SHOULD

  • Magzclassical

    same as everyone else, from now – 5 hours later u should get ur code

  • Nathan Wallis

    yeh same it like 1am

  • forgotten games

    It gave PS4 codes I think.

  • Joe Sweeney

    K thnx

  • Joe Sweeney

    So in 5 hours we UK will have codes?

  • forgotten games

    So far my impression of the beta, not so good XD

  • Jacob tyree

    People are all ready live on twitch…

    • Cory Goble

      I got my codes, tried all 3 and they arent working. Yet at least…

  • Nathan Wallis

    so i can sleep wake up and my codes will be here?

  • forgotten games
  • Rarelyviolent

    first it said it gave me ps4 codes i tried them any way now it says they are xbox one codes and they are the same ones as before and still dont work

  • forgotten games

    COD forums down, servers probably sending 3 million emails right now.

  • adolf shitler

    yeah my code says something went wrong,already over this,gonna try again in bit,those codes i gave are legit though

    • Cory Goble

      I am receiving the same error… hope we can play soon XD

    • forgotten games

      Why are you giving the codes away freely anyway?

      • adolf shitler

        sharing is caring

  • forgotten games

    Yeah I believe you that they are legit.

  • Joe Sweeney

    So in 5 hours UK will get beta codes?

  • Nathan Wallis

    i think so

  • forgotten games

    No, UK should get beta now.

  • forgotten games

    As long as I can download in the night, I’m good.

  • Joe Sweeney

    Ok cool thx and sorry for bieng so needy for answers

  • Nathan Wallis

    oh well fuck me sideways i dont have anything πŸ˜›

  • forgotten games

    It takes longer than you’d think to send 3 million emails.

  • Joe Sweeney

    True

  • forgotten games

    I juts hope these specialist things are not OP

  • forgotten games

    I don’t like the sound of them.

  • Wrestlefreak127

    I have the token codes but when entered they don’t work.

  • Joe Sweeney

    I’m an Xbox user and I logged it in with Facebook so I should just get an e-mail or will it go to Facebook?

    • forgotten games

      Don’t you have an email on the COD website?

      • Joe Sweeney

        Yeah but I joined it with Facebook so I should just get an email?

  • forgotten games

    If I use one of your codes, I’ll share mine with someone else. Like a sharing chain.

    • adolf shitler

      hell yeah,pass it forward

      • forgotten games

        If I ever get it XD

  • Russell Gasper

    I have a spare code if someone needs one

    • StayHumble

      can i have bro please?

      • Russell Gasper

        Yes give a couple minutes. I’ll message it to u

        • StayHumble

          ok thanks man!

        • StayHumble

          let me know when you message it im watching tv lol

          • Russell Gasper

            Sent u the code man hope they get them working soon

    • StayHumble

      message it to me my gamertag is Sour Buds tell me when you do

    • me meee

  • kyle Morris

    if i pre ordered the deluxe edition on the xbox one does it automatically let me download it tonight at midnight? or am i suppose to be checking my email too..? PLEASE HELP Xbox One Gamertag: LilWoahski

  • forgotten games

    IF YOU PREORDERED DIGITALLY YOU GO RIGHT TO THE STORE AND DOWNLOAD THERE IS NO EMAIL

  • forgotten games

    Search “Black Ops 3” and the Beta is like the forth one.

  • Brian Todd

    Got mine but code doesn’t work on Xbox or online account

    • Wrestlefreak127

      yep

  • forgotten games

    Sounds like all the codes are invalid. I have yet to find one person with a valid code.

    • StayHumble

      i havnt even got a code lol

      • Jacob tyree

        People are playing live on twitch on Xbox one I don’t get it like wtf

    • Anthony Castro

      If you look at the twitch chat of people playing blops 3 its filled with people complaining about their codes not working. Hopefully the large volume of people not playing will help this get resolved asap.

  • Joe Sweeney

    Same here

  • forgotten games

    So… might as well discuss the game while we sit here and wait.

  • Joe Sweeney

    Oh well might as well go to sleep and wait till morning…

  • Joe Sweeney

    Ok

  • forgotten games

    I’ve started playing without aim assist and have improved my accuracy a ton.

  • Joe Sweeney

    On xbox

  • forgotten games

    I recommend y’all turn off aim assist and train yourselves to play better without it. Aim assist is a crutch.

  • Joe Sweeney

    Good idea

  • coyote

    I got my beta codes but there not working it says check in later or check the service provider

    • Edge

      Probably because high traffic

      • coyote

        Thanks

  • forgotten games

    At first you’ll utterly suck, but after some time I’ve gotten much more accurate.

  • Joe Sweeney

    Can’t wait for zombies it’s my fave?

  • forgotten games

    I hope they don’t ruin zombies like BO2. BO1 zombies was perfect.

    • Anthony Castro

      BO2 zombies was good idk what you’re talking about. The easter eggs and indepth gameplay was probably one of the best points of BO2 zombies. Look at origins.

      • forgotten games

        Have you played BO1 zombies?

        • forgotten games

          It has 9 zombies maps.

          • forgotten games

            All fantastic.

        • Anthony Castro

          Of course. I’m not discrediting BO1 zombies. but BO2 did NOT ruin zombies. If anything they gave it a new light and showed that it could be more than just kiting a bunch of zombies. However… AW zombies was trash lol

  • Joe Sweeney

    I agree

  • Joe Sweeney

    Bo2 zombies kinda sucked

  • Edge

    Im guessing the reason the codes arent working is because high traffic

  • Joe Sweeney

    Yeah probably

  • StayHumble

    like meaning theres alot of people trying to put codes in?

    • Edge

      yes

  • forgotten games

    The codes should be all Microsoft’s servers, not Treyarch’s if I am correct.

  • Lewis

    Why hasn’t the email sent yet with the token

    • StayHumble

      idk i havnt got mine either bro

    • StayHumble

      just be patient lol

  • Joe Sweeney

    Der riese is my fave zombie map and they’re bringing it back can’t wait

  • Joe Sweeney

    High traffic

  • forgotten games

    Ser Riese is overrated IMO. It was great in WAW, but BO1 maps made much better. Shangri-la, Ascension, Call of the Dead, and Moon, and Five, all great.

  • StayHumble

    its all about Mob Of the Dead Grief

  • Joe Sweeney

    Yeah but no ppsh-41 can’t live without that gun

  • IM DOWNLOADING NOW xD

  • forgotten games

    :O

  • Joe Sweeney

    On xbox

  • forgotten games

    I still never got an email.

  • Joe Sweeney

    Same

  • StayHumble

    same

  • Joey Shields

    same

    • Nathan Sledgehammer Bourke

      check your xbox messages from xbox live. everyone do the same

  • forgotten games

    Good I’m not the only one. You mean “same” as in no email right?

    • Joey Shields

      yeah

    • StayHumble

      yup

    • forgotten games

      If let’s say 3 million people are downloading this at once, and they want to transfer 3Mbps to each downloaded, that would mean the servers have to transfer 9,000,000,000,000 bytes per second which is 9 terabytes per second.

  • Joe Sweeney

    Like if you cry every time

  • StayHumble

    yes

  • Joe Sweeney

    Yeah

  • Nathan Sledgehammer Bourke

    Has everyone checked there xbox messages from xbox live?

    • Anthony Castro

      Why, did they send you anything through there?

  • Nathan Sledgehammer Bourke

    also I heard you couldn’t play it in till 8AM GMT/ 123 PT has that changed?

  • StayHumble

    yeah

  • StayHumble

    its live now

  • forgotten games

    If let’s say 3 million people are downloading this at once, and they want to transfer 3Mbps to each downloaded, that would mean the servers have to transfer 9,000,000,000,000 bytes per second which is 9 terabytes per second

    • Nathan Sledgehammer Bourke

      mine just finished in 4 minutes BO3 TIME

    • bravo

  • i went to marketplace and typed, black ops 3 beta and it told me i could get it free, i purchased the deluxe edition btw.

    • StayHumble

      well duh

  • Joe Sweeney

    Any way going to sleep because it’s 1 in the morning because I’m in the UK and hopefully it’s there when I wake up

  • forgotten games

    If you bought it digital you DONT GET AN MAIL – you go straight to the marketplace.

  • Joe Sweeney

    Seeya nice talking

  • Nathan Sledgehammer Bourke

    Joe bro i’m in the UK too but I am going to destoy this game all night/ foir the next five days

  • Joe Sweeney

    Ha lol same

  • Nathan Sledgehammer Bourke

    trust take it easy buddy

  • Joe Sweeney

    Any way Seeya man

  • Joey Shields

    i went to the marketplace to try and download the beta but it says unavailable

    • forgotten games

      Did you preorder digitally or through a retailer?

      • Joey Shields

        digitally

  • Justin Eggett

    I got my code but it wont work!

  • forgotten games

    Still waiting on code…

  • forgotten games

    Joe Sweeney

    There’s a guy in my clan names Sweeney

  • forgotten games

    Anyone waiting on email still?

    • StayHumble

      yes

  • Justin Eggett

    I got a code but every time I put it in nothing happenes

  • Justin Eggett

    this is annoying

    • forgotten games

      I’d wait like 30 minutes and try again. No use trying a bunch of times.

  • forgotten games

    Already I’m not happy with Treyarch…

    • StayHumble

      just be patient it wasnt supposed to start till 12 anyway

      • Justin Eggett

        midnight?

  • adolf shitler

    We’re tracking an issue regarding #BO3Beta codes. We are currently investigating and will let you know more when we can…stand by.-treyarch

  • Rodney Tietz Jr.

    Since us xbox one people.got codes and they dont work will they extend it past the 30th

    • forgotten games

      They should.

      • Rodney Tietz Jr.

        Is everyone with a One having issues

        • i got mine

          • Rodney Tietz Jr.

    • Justin Eggett

      yeah hopefully

    • Brian Todd

      It’s only been an hour. Relax. They are also dishing out the codes a day earlier than planned…so they don’t owe you.

  • forgotten games

    ATTENTION! Beta code goes to your Xbox account email NOT your callofduty.com email.

    • Justin Eggett

      and it takes this long..

  • forgotten games

    I got my Beta codes

    • Justin Eggett

  • forgotten games

    Wait I was wrong, they go to cod.com email. Check ALL MAIL it did not appear in my inbox, but it’s in all mail for some reason.

    • you don’t know what you’re talking about brah

  • Justin Eggett

    • SrRy Kickzz

      If you’re on xbox one it isn’t going to work. Treyarch is having problems with the xbox one beta codes. Should be fixed soon

      • Daniel Zuniga

        Cool thanks for the info

  • Dillan de Laet

    Their twitter says “We’re aware that some players are having trouble redeeming their XB1 BO3 beta tokens, the teams are working on this now” so lets wait :p

    • Daniel Zuniga

      You think it applies to all 3 tokens received

    • Justin Eggett

      of course

  • Quesean Parker

    until then who wants to play poop ghost with me ? or just add ? Qsteez17

    • Justin Eggett

  • Justin Eggett

    I give up waste of time!

  • Justin Eggett

    I give up waste of time!

  • Jacob tyree

    Ugh…

  • Justin Eggett

    I give up waste of time!

  • Anonymous PC Gamer

    buy the game to try the game, whats the deal with that?
    As a PC gamer I would happily pay more for a game where the developer doesnt use codes to force console scripting to work on them and then go and F* it all up with low FPS, low resolution and game crashes.
    You use a flippin PC to develop the game in the first place so develope it for PC then port it to consoles.

  • Justin Eggett

      From what I heard you don’t get a code you just download the beta right from the Xbox store, However you don’t have to deal with the code not working bullshit so be thankful lol.
