Black Ops 3 Xbox One beta can be downloaded by anyone with a simple trick

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Xbox One beta can be downloaded by anyone using a simple trick, it has emerged.

Last week PS4 users got early access to the Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta, and now it’s time for Xbox One and PC owners to get in on the action.

The beta started today, but it is only accessible to those who have pre-ordered the game and received a beta code. Some Xbox One users are even having issues with the code they’ve received.

However, some players have found a quick trick that allows you to download and play the beta on Xbox One without pre-ordering the game.

Xbox One owners just have to set the console’s language to Japanese, access the Marketplace and download the beta from there.

It’s also possible to download the beta by heading to the Xbox website, changing your locale there and then starting the download.

The trick might not be working much longer, but it was at the time of writing so be quick.
