The Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta is underway for Xbox One and PC users from 12:30pm IST on August 26 to 12:30pm IST on August 31. While Xbox One owners have had a few hiccups what with codes not redeeming, it seems that PC gamers are in for a pleasant surprise.
According to VG247, you own Call of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, or Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on Steam, you already have access to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer beta on PC. All you have to do is check the Games section of your Steam client.

And if you purchased Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for PC on Steam, you can download the beta from the Games section as well.
Much like the PlayStation 4 beta that saw it open on the final two days to everyone on Sony’s console regardless of pre-ordering the game or not, you can safely expect the same for Xbox One and PC owners. The multiplayer beta for PS4 owners took place last week and was met with an overwhelming response. Whether the beta will extend past its August 31 date remains to be seen.
If you plan to take part in the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta, be prepared to download around 15GB of data on your PC or Xbox One. And be prepared for performance that doesn’t seem too stellar if early impressions from NeoGAF are anything to go by.
