Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta begins in August

On PS4 first.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta begins on 19th August 2015, developer Treyarch has announced.

That's for PlayStation 4 only. As revealed at E3, publisher Activision has switched allegiances from Xbox to PlayStation following years of Microsoft-related timed exclusivity.

It means downloadable add-ons will launch on PlayStation platforms 30 days before other platforms.

The multiplayer beta will launch on other platforms, but after PS4, Activision stressed. The company said it will announce release dates for the beta on other platforms soon.

To get in on the beta you have to, shock horror, pre-order or pre-purchase the game. Redeem your code on the Call of Duty website.
