Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta hits PS4 in August

The future of cyborg deathmatches is only a month and a half away. Treyarch just announced that the multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will begin on August 19, starting first on PS4.

Activision and Treyarch revealed back at E3 2015 that the popular shooter series is making the preferred-platform jump from Xbox to PlayStation starting with Black Ops 3. The beta timing reflects that new allegiance, though Xbox One and PC players will get to join the beta eventually (don't expect the same for PS3 and Xbox 360).

At the moment, the only way to get into the multiplayer beta is to pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. If you're not sure about putting money down early, check out our Black Ops 3 multiplayer for more details.
