Treyarch shares how the Black Ops 3 beta improved the game

The modern beta is more a marketing exercise than a testing period but that hasn’t stopped Treyarch learning from the feedback on their August Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta.

In a blog post Director of Development Cesar Stastny described some of the improvements made specifically from beta feedback. These ranged from performance optimisations on PC, control tweaks, platform specific network issues and in game stability with crashes and freezes. Treyarch are keeping any gameplay changes they have made thanks to the beta close to their chest, but in this age of troubled launches full of technical issues it is nice to know Black Ops 3 has a leg up on the competition.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 arrives 6 November for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. A limited, multiplayer online only version will also be available for Xbox 360 and PS3.
