Traditionally, the Call of Duty franchise has never had any public betas before. We saw things change at E3 where, for the first time, a game in the series was playable to the masses on the show floor. Now, a full blown multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be released on PlayStation 4 this August.
This comes to us directly from Treyarch who made the announcement on Twitter:
We’re excited to announce that the #BlackOps3 Multiplayer Beta will begin on 8/19 starting on PS4. More information coming soon!

As the tweet says, there will be more information coming, so stay tuned for that.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be released for the PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on November 6.
