With the the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Beta currently up and running on PlayStation 4, Treyarch has been hard at work studying the incoming data and making tweaks as well as confirming some new additions. For starters, Treyarch is increasing the level cap to Major (Level 34) – which will unlock new weapons, equipment, perks and score-streaks.
Also, the team at Treyarch is introducing a new map into the rotation with Stronghold – a high-tech Swiss chateau in the frozen Alps, featuring an asymmetrical design with a lethal mix of exposed sight-lines and tight, close quarters.
In addition to the new level increase and the new map, a new specialist will also be made available to players that manage to reach Level 34: the Reaper.
- Real Name: Experimental War Robot (EWR)
- Bio: Started as an expensive military R&D project to supplement Special Operations soldiers in the field, the EWR was a cutting-edge prototype combat robot, the most advanced in the world at the time. Budget overruns and embarrassing political incidents left the project all but a resource for scrap metal, except for the one prototype that remained.
- Weapon: Scythe – Robotic arm that transforms into a high power Mini-Gun.
- Ability: Psychosis – Infiltrate enemy DNI systems to simulate three decoy clones.
Finally, the team at Treyarch is introducing the Uplink game mode to the multiplayer playlist. In this new mode, players face off in an effort to take control of a downed satellite and infiltrate into the enemy’s goal.
The Call of Duty: Black Ops III Beta can now be downloaded to your PS4 via the PSN store so hurry and jump in on the action before its over.
