Treyarch has announced that today they are starting the open beta of the PC Mod Tools for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Originally announced in November 2015, the mod tools have been through extensive testing in closed alpha state with select community members throughout the year.

Today, the open beta is now live, and all PC players who own Black Ops 3 can test out the Mod Tools.

Opening access to modding and mapping tools to a wider audience will allow us to more effectively address bugs, add polish, and move closer to a complete suite of PC features. While these tools are most certainly for the community, they wouldn’t be possible without the community itself, which is why we’re grateful for your patience and participation.

Treyarch says that over the coming months they will add more improvements to the user experience. The Open beta will also feature an unranked server browser for players to test out their mods with the community on PC. The unranked servers will launch at a later date.
