A quick lesson in PR: if you can boast, then boast. It may not mean much that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has enjoyed the biggest beta in PlayStation 4 history, but Activision's told us anyway. Sure, counterpart Destiny's probably the only title that could possibly compete with it in this department, but who cares? A win is a win, after all.
According to the publisher, millions participated in the server stress test. "We've been looking forward to getting the game into the hands of the people that matter most – the fans," said a chuffed Treyarch boss Mark Lamia. "We can't thank them all enough for participating and providing us with invaluable feedback and data."
Of course, the most important thing is whether the beta was well received. There have definitely been some mixed responses, but on the whole, we'd say that the feedback has been pretty positive. Our series expert Joey Thurmond was pretty impressed with it overall, noting that the developer is "banking on its legacy and building upon it with a futuristic flair".
