Call of Duty: Black Ops III: What You Can Expect From the Beta

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is quickly approaching the date of its hotly-anticipated multiplayer Beta, with PlayStation 4 players gaining access August 19th, and Xbox One and PC players on August 26th.

So today, Treyarch and Activision have released a load of information on the content that will be available in the Call of Duty: Black Ops III multiplayer Beta! Of course, this Beta will only contain a mere fraction of what will eventually be in the final game, but player feedback throughout the test will help shape the Day 1 experience for everybody.

The Beta will consist of three maps, specifically built for the new momentum-based chained-movement system.

Players will be able to hop in to a range of game modes, including (but not limited to): Team Deathmatch, Domination, Demolition, Capture the Flag, and more.

Specialists will also make an appearance in the Beta, so players will be able to start getting to know the default Specialists in Callsigns:

  • Ruin – using sheer force to surprise the enemy
  • Outrider – a sneaky compound bow wielder
  • Prophet – using superior technology to disrupt the enemy’s tactics
  • Battery – a heavily armored fearless war machine
  • Seraph – a focused militant enforcer with unflinching combat discipline
  • Nomad – a survivalist who uses his skills to turn the environment against his opponents
  • Reaper – “Experimental War Robot”, kinda says all it needs, right?
  • Spectre – a stealthy assassin with mono-edged twin blades

All of whom have their own unique back stories, weapons and abilities.
