Call of Duty Black Ops III’s beta will launch for Xbox One on August 26 – one week later than PS4.  The beta will include three maps that have all been developed with Treyarch’s new momentum-based chained-movement system firmly at their core:

  • Hunted
  • Combine
  • Evac

And fan favourite modes return for the beta, so don’t expect any surprises:

  • Team Deathmatch
  • Domination
  • Demolition
  • Kill Confirmed
  • Hardpoint
  • Capture the Flag
  • Search & Destroy

The beta will also introduce Black Ops’ new class system – Specialists – which sounds a little similar to how Ubisoft are handling their classes in Rainbow Six Siege. There’s eight to choose from, each can be ranked up and comes with their own weapon preference and ability sets.

Finally, players will also get to experience the new Weapon Paintshop – an evolution of the Emblem Editor – customise the look of your weapon fully with 64 editable layers, I wonder how long it will be before we see a full penis graphic wrapped gun!

I've been gaming for longer than I care to remember and spent four years writing for another XCN website leading a 10 strong team. Now I'm in charge of TiX alongside Dave Moran – I hope you enjoy what we do!
