Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta getting new map, mode, and level cap increase

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta players on PlayStation 4 are in for a treat today.


Treyarch is updating the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta today. The update raises the level cap to 34, a few notches higher than the current 28.

The Stronghold map is also getting added, as is Uplink, the sports-inspired mode that debuted in last year's Advanced Warfare. Players who reach Level 34 can also play the specialist, Reaper.

Treyarch's design director David Vonderhaar is the one who revealed the details above, adding that less than 10% of players have reached the current level cap.

It's unclear if this will be a server or a client-side update. Once we know for sure, we'll update the story.
