Originally scheduled not to begin until this Wednesday, the PS4 beta multiplayer beta for Call of Duty Black Ops 3 kicked off early. Gamers that already had their beta access codes were able to jump into the beta test for the upcoming next installment of the hugely popular first-person late Tuesday evening, hours before the event was expected to go live.
Fans were notified about the early launch of the Call of Duty Black Ops 3 beta for the Playstation 4 through the game’s official Twitter account after Activision and Treyarch were allowed to turn on the servers, thanks to help from Sony.

Going over a series of questions that users may have about the beta, the Playstation Blog also released a detailed guide on the early access test. As the Inquisitr reported last week, many of these topics were covered during a multiple FAQ postings from both the publisher and developer of Call of Duty Black Ops 3. However, the new beta resource guide does go into a few new details of the test and features a heartfelt introduction to fans from Sony’s senior manager of social media Sid Shuman.
“It’s time! Minutes ago, Treyarch and Activision officially kicked off Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Multiplayer Beta on PS4. Seeing that this is officially a Really Big Deal, we wanted to create a definitive resource for PS4 gamers looking to jump in. See below for crucial details cultivated by the fine folks at Treyarch and Activision.”
As currently stands, players can reach a maximum level of 28 in the Call of Duty Black Ops 3 PS4 beta. However, Treyarch promises to slowly raise the level cap restrictions over the course of the test between now and when the beta is scheduled to end on August 23.
As a beta test, the developer isn’t just giving fans early access to Call of Duty Black Ops 3 so that they can enjoy a taste of the game before it officially launches later this year. Treyarch actually hopes to view statistics on how the game’s servers perform under pressure so that they can remove any discovered bugs now before the next entry of the Call of Duty franchise is actually released.
Treyarch also wants to hear feedback from the Call of Duty Black Ops 3 beta participants. While there currently isn’t a system in place to allow users to submit their thoughts and comments on the game, the developer assures fans that they will release a survey at some point during the beta to give the community a voice.
