Treyarch has announced some new details about Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Arena mode. Arena is the new League Play in Black Ops 3. For Arena, the action will kick off with a Beta Season starting on November 6th (with the game’s launch).
The Beta Season will last for the month of November; following the end of the beta season – and before the start of the first season – Treyarch will be reseting all players’ Arena specific stats.
In addition, Vahn has announced on Twitter that they will be using the beta season of Arena to determine the rule set which will be implemented for the start of the Season 1.
AFTER the game is out, during Beta Season, we will start getting serious about official settings. For now, enjoy. https://t.co/in2aPY09yr

Treyarch’s new approach with Arena is to make it more accessible for all players to try out. Player are ranked individually, and it’s all based upon wins and loses.
*NOTE: Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 eSports features – including Arena – are only available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
