Update:Xbox One Black Ops 3 Beta Problems Frustrate Users

After wrapping up a week of the PS4 beta, the Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta starts in a few hours along with the PC version. The official word is that the Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta download codes will start rolling out at 12:01 AM Pacific or 3:01 AM Eastern on August 26th, but gamers are counting on an early arrival of codes like we saw with the PS4 beta.

Even if you get your Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta download codes this evening you should not expect to play right away. The 12-15GB download will take some time and you may need to download a patch on top of the main download. The PS4 beta download took over six hours on a fast home connection, and the Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta download may take just as long during the first hours when the server is hammered.

Although Treyarch did not yet offer an estimated time, David Vonderhaar recently stated that the team is doing system checks and is focused on the release at this moment.

Here is how to download the Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta and start playing as soon as the codes arrive.

Where to Find Your Xbox One Black Ops 3 Beta Token

[contextly_sidebar id=”CkpxtcYsslAeXX9Z6VCsRkLG9SGQvuK3″]You need to make sure you registered for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta using the codes that the retailer you pre-order from provided. You need to enter those codes into the Call of Duty website so that you can get the Black Ops 3 beta download token for Xbox One.

The only exception is if you pre-ordered the digital copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on Xbox One from the Xbox Store. If that is the case you are already registered and just need to download the beta as soon as it is live on the store.

Update: If you did not get the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta code that you need to register, and you pre-ordered from Best Buy, use this guide to contact the right person to get your Xbox One BO3 beta code that you need to register to get this download token.

If you bought the game in stores, go to the email address you used to register for your Call of Duty account. Search for an email from Call of Duty, [email protected], with the subject Your Black Ops 3 Beta Token is Inside.

As soon as your email is sent out you should find your beta tokens and two others to share with friends during the beta. As of now you need a beta download token for this, but this weekend the Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta may open up to all.

Xbox One Black Ops 3 Beta: 10 Things to Try

Try Out Each Specialist

Try Out Each Specialist

Black Ops 3 is going to be introducing several new elements to the Call of Duty franchise. One of the biggest is the addition of Specialists. Specialists come with their own look but more importantly, they come with unique weapons and abilities. 

Here's the breakdown of the Specialist classes that you'll most likely encounter during the Xbox One Black Ops 3 beta:

Battery: Battery operates ahead of the front lines. Her War Machine fires salvos of bouncing grenades, while her Kinetic Armor can deflect enemy bullets when active… though she remains vulnerable to headshots and non-bullet damage.

Ruin: A reckless infantry soldier who prefers to surprise his enemies. He rushes into battle with his Overdrive ability, and can deliver a devastating shockwave with his Gravity Spikes.

Outrider: A hunter-tracker who stalks her prey from afar before moving in for the kill. Use her Vision Pulse ability to reveal the location of nearby enemies or her Sparrow compound bow with its deadly explosive bolts.

Prophet: Prefers to disrupt opponents’ tactics before moving in for the kill. His Tempest is a charge-shot weapon that delivers chain electricity to all nearby enemies. He can confuse enemies with his Glitch ability, which flashes him back to a previous position.

Seraph: Known for extreme focus and discipline in combat. Her high-caliber Annihilator revolver fires powerful rounds with increased bullet penetration taking out enemies with one shot. She’s also able to earn Scorestreaks more quickly using her Combat Focus ability, which triggers a brief bonus multiplier.

Nomad: Prefers to turn the environment against his enemies. Case in point: His H.I.V.E. weapon, which deploys trap pods filled with deadly nano-drones. When near death, Nomad can recover using his Rejack ability.

You'll want to try out each Specialist so that you develop a comfort level with one or more of them. There's a good chance that one will fit your style better than the other so you'll want to use the beta to do a bit of experimentation.

In order to really dig in though you'll need to play as each one. As you level up, you'll gain unlock tokens that allow you to access new weapons and abilities. So, give each a shot and that way, you'll be better prepared for the public release in November.

    Fail Boat like every next generation release so far. Even they can’t make sure the token code server is talking with Xbox line to validate the codes. If they can’t get that straight after the failed ps4 code issue why would we thing they have the game and servers ready for launch day.

    Hey so.. It’s a beta, one.. and two, calm yourself.. it’s not like you won’t watch youtuber and twitch streamers play the game over and over again.. You just want to have an opinion that more than likely will be ignored. My codes didn’t work either.. But I’m just laughing at you fools thinking that this page has any control over what Activision does.. it’s not like they can go “Poof here’s a new code that DOES work” so quit your whining.. it’ll be open to everyone soon more than likely this weekend..

    • John Doe

      08/26/2015 at 1:52 pm

      If you purchase BO3 directly from XBox store, it will recognized you purchased it and will not send any codes. Just go download the BO3 Beta app (it’s different from the actual BO3 game download) and should let you in.

  23. Tanya

    08/26/2015 at 6:45 am

    I changed my region to Brazil online and it let me redeem my token but now I don’t know how to actually get the beta to download to my Xbox. Can anyone help?
