Call of Duty Black Ops III

The Xbox One and PC multiplayer beta test for Activision's upcoming first person shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops III began earlier today. However, many Xbox One players who pre-ordered the game are reporting they cannot use the codes to enter the beta test.

Microsoft is aware of the issues and is trying to fix them, according to a message on the Xbox Live status page:

"Hey Xbox members, we are aware that some of you may be experiencing issues redeeming your beta tokens for Call of Duty: Black Ops III. We are working closely with our partner to get this resolved ASAP! Thank you for being patient while we work. We'll post another update when more information becomes available."

The Call of Duty: Black Ops III beta gives players a chance to check out several of the maps, gameplay modes, weapons and more multiplayer features from the full game, which will be released on November 6. Currently, the beta is only supposed to be open for people who pre-ordered the game on the Xbox One, but on August 28 it will be available for all Xbox One owners with an Xbox Live Gold subscription. The beta is scheduled to end on August 30, but it's possible that could be extended because of today's issues.
