Black Ops 3 Beta to be 15GB, Token Emails To Be Sent August 19, 12AM PT
While the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Reckoning DLC won’t be available until September on Playstation 4, they’ll be getting access to the Black Ops 3 beta this month (August 19.)
In a new blog post Activision have provided a helpful FAQ on the multiplayer Beta that is coming to not only Playstation 4, but also Xbox One and PC. This will be open to you only if you have a beta access code, which are given to people who have pre-ordered the game.
In the FAQ Activision have shared some interesting information about the beta:
How big is the Beta file?
To make the Beta a fun and valuable experience, we’ve packed it with a lot of content. Therefore, the file is approximately 15 GB and download times will vary based on location, server traffic, and connection speed.
What’s the difference between my Beta code that I received and my Beta token?
Your pre-order Beta code reserved your spot for the Beta and is redeemed at CallofDuty.com/BlackOps3Beta. Once you have registered, a Beta token will be emailed to you on a rolling basis beginning at 12:00 AM PST on August 19th for PS4 users and on a rolling basis at 12:00 AM PST on August 26th for Xbox One and PC users. This Beta token will allow you to download the Beta from the platform you have designated in the registration process.
This not only confirms the size of the download for the beta but also details just how it players will be given access to it.
Also confirming the question of Beta progress being carried over to the main game:
Will my progress from the Beta carry over to retail?
No, progress will not carry over from the Beta. Our focus is making the final game the best and most stable experience it can be and we will be working on balancing and other fixes leading up to launch.
Which is official confirmation, for anybody still wondering on that subject.
