Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta extended

Developer Treyarch has confirmed it is extending the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta until tomorrow morning.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta was supposed to end on Sunday, but Treyarch has just announced it’s letting it run a little longer.

You get another 24 hours to play the Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta, with the session now running until Monday, August 25 at 10PM PDT. That equates to 6AM on Tuesday 26 August here in the UK.

Treyarch also reported that it has fixed some of the server issues that have been causing lag for some users. Apparently, players will now be able to experience a “stable” connection in the beta.

As announced previously, the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta is available first for PS4 players who pre-ordered the game – part of Activision’s exclusivity deal with PlayStation.

PlayStation gamers also get a free zombies theme just for trying the beta too.

Xbox One and PC users won’t be totally shut out of the beta action though, as they’ll get access to it August 26-30.

This is the first Call of Duty beta that’s been held in years, and won’t be accessible on Xbox 360 and PS3.

At launch the Black Ops 3 beta included seven maps and three modes, but more have been added over the course of the trial.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 release date is set for November 6 on all platforms – apart from the Nintendo ones.
