Call of Duty fans the world over rejoiced when the release date for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was confirmed, November 6. While it has been an outstanding issue in gaming circles that pre-ordering are sometimes just fan baits, those who are way excited to wait for November for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 are actually in for a treat.
Bucks Herald reports that fans who are pre-ordering Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be receiving the download code for the public beta ahead of the slated release date.
According to the report, those at the Xbox One console could pre-order the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Digital Edition that will allow access to the upcoming multiplayer beta or better yet, get the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Digital Deluxe Edition that will not only allow access to the exclusive multiplayer beta, but also come with a Season Pass and a number of DLCs.
Those at the PlayStation 4 platform pre-ordering Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 are also entitled to the multiplayer beta and other selected regional bonuses.
A lot of Call of Duty fans are pretty excited about this beta news since it has been at least seven years after the last public beta by the franchise, dating back to 2008. It’s actually a pretty sweet deal, especially with Treyarch’s studio design director very confident about the quality that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will deliver. David Vonderhaar replied to a fan tweet.
@ItsTunr I think this will be our best pc title yet, designed for pc and developed concurrently with the other platforms.

Vonderhaar has also confirmed via Twitter that those who will have access to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta will come through a digital download and not packaged in a disc like the base game. He adds that Black Ops 3 will be very faithful to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’s design goals, so those who thoroughly enjoyed the streaks and rewards from Black Ops 2 will not be entirely put off. Attack of the Fanboy reports that more official details could be possibly released next month.
@I_Question_me The design goals haven’t changed, so I hope so. HMU later when can talk more about the strategy/goals for that feature.

While waiting for more official Call of Duty details from Treyarch, Game Spot has already published exciting new leaks to look forward to in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
It’s a huge hurrah for the gaming community when news came out that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will finally allow a co-op campaign. According to the leaks, up to two players could complete the campaign via split-screen and up to four players could co-op online. The new campaign feature is said to deliver “cinematic, arena-style play” with fully-customizable weapons, loadouts, outfits, and abilities, optimized for the ultimate co-op campaign experience.
Everybody has been waiting for Call of Duty to finally bring back a co-op campaign and the only more exciting Black Ops 3 news than the co-op campaign leak is the Zombies mode that will offer an all-new horror story angle to the game. The new Zombies mode for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will have its own distinct storyline with an experience-based progression system. Definitely a very ambitious and equally exhilarating feat at the same time.
If you’re not yet a hundred percent convinced at this point, better check out the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 trailer released at the Call of Duty website here.
