Activision's partnership with Sony regarding Call of Duty: Black Ops III, which was revealed during E3 2015, came as a big shock to many. The mega publisher announced that it was actually switching sides to promote one of gaming's biggest franchises on PlayStation, and along with timed exclusive downloadable content, part of the deal is that PS4 players get the game's beta first.

Right on cue, Treyarch Studios - the upcoming shooter's developer - has stated on Twitter that the beta will begin next month, on the 19th August. You can nab a place in it by pre-ordering the release.
