The maps, modes and gun-for-arm warbot of Black Ops 3 beta

Next week, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's multiplayer beta kicks off on the PlayStation 4 and the developers at Treyarch have finally detailed what to expect when it does.

It appears the same bits and pieces will be coming to the Windows PC and Xbox One beta on Aug. 26 as well.

The beta will include three maps, seven modes, access to the weapon paintshop and the ability to play as one of any of the six default specialists. A few days in, the game will also unlock a couple more specialists.

The Maps

  • Hunted: This big game hunting lodge is situated beneath a waterfall in the lush mountains of Ethiopia, where rugged terrain opens up to long sightlines and a stealthy underwater pathway.
  • Combine: Set in the remote Egyptian Sahara, this vertical farming and sustainability research facility plays fast and frenetic with tight interiors, an open middle and a dangerous flank path.
  • Evac: An abandoned emergency evacuation zone atop an overgrown rooftop in the middle of Singapore's flooded quarantine zone.

Game Modes

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

You can read through the details of the eight specialists over on the game's website. Each come with their own bio, special weapon and ability. It's worth noting that one of the two late addition specialists is, in fact, an experimental war robot that has an arm that turns into a mini-gun.

Don't forget to check out the Black Ops 3 beta trailer that hit earlier today.
