#BO3 Beta - It's Open Season

Yesterday, we opened the #BO3 Beta to all PS4 players, so we’ve got some new friends online. If you’ve been in from the beginning, you’re probably ready for a few new goodies…in which case, we've got some good news for you.

Good morning!


By now, you’ve probably caught on that our Periscope broadcasts will give you a jump on the action. Well, today is no exception…

Today, we’re increasing the level cap to Colonel (Level 40) – now, it’s time to see what you've got, so bring it!

But why stop with just a level cap? How about a new Specialist too? Today, you’ll have the opportunity to play as Spectre – here’s what you need to know:

Next to nothing is known about the presumed wet-works Specialist, Spectre. The designation itself is a codename agreed upon by the various agencies that have pooled their intelligence on unsolved assassinations, inferring his or her existence based on either evidence found at the scene or from fragmentary reports given by shaken bystanders.  Despite heavy redaction, all accounts suggest an individual capable of extraordinary stealth, able to evade or neutralize the most sophisticated of manned or automated security set-ups.  In every case, Spectre’s victims have been ‘handled’ with surgically precise mid-line wounds with rarely any signs of struggle.

Last but not least, you’ll have a chance to play a brand new mode that we’re calling Safeguard. This is an “attack and defend” mode that will test a team’s ability to coordinate their action. The attacking team must escort a robot drone into the enemy team’s base, but it only moves when a player is standing next to it. The defending team can disable the robot by inflicting enough damage, causing it to shut down and reboot before it can be moved again. Teams will alternate between attack and defense roles, each getting one turn in each role . If one team wins both rounds, they win the match. If both teams win a round, it goes into overtime, which follows a similar format to Capture the Flag overtime – if the attacking team escorts the robot into the enemy base in the first round, the opposing team has to beat their time to get the robot into the enemy base. It’s pure, delicious chaos! Organized teamwork is the name of the game here, folks.

We hope that you enjoy Spectre, as well as Safeguard and we can’t wait to see you online!
