Players who preordered Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 at a retailer and entered a code on the Call of Duty site, be sure to check your email. Activision has started sending out beta tokens to players; it may take time for all codes to be sent out to everyone.

Each email contains 3 download tokens, so you can use one and give the other two to friends. If you don’t get a code after several hours and you are sure you did redeem your code before, please check your Call of Duty Profile HERE.
