Activision and Treyarch will launch a global multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 next month, in an effort to ensure a smooth game launch later this year.
The multiplayer beta will be available for the PC, Microsoft Xbox One, and Sony PlayStation 4. PS4 gamers will get first crack on August 19, while PC and Xbox One gamers will be able to start playing on August 26. The multiplayer beta will last just four days.
"During the beta, fans will have an opportunity to try the new momentum-based, chained movement system, find the perfect Specialist to fit their play style, get a feel for the new multiplayer maps and more," said Scott Lowe, communications manager at Activision, in a blog post.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is scheduled for release on November 6, and will be available for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
