Back in black (again)

Call of Duty: Black Ops III will crash onto the PlayStation 4 from 6th November, assuming that a leaked GameSpot promotional display is accurate. The placeholder ESRB rating on the left-hand side of the case confirms that this is from the United States, so backwards dating conventions apply – yes, we thought that it said 11th June at first as well.

Perhaps the most interesting thing is that the game will be getting a beta, and those that pre-order will be guaranteed entry. However, only the PS4 and other current formats are mentioned in the list of compatible platforms for the stress test – there's no mention of the PlayStation 3. Either way, we should know a lot more this weekend, when the game is due its first full unveiling. See you on the other side, soldier.
