Activision and Treyarch have added more to the ongoing Call of Duty: Black Ops III beta on PlayStation 4. If you think you’ve maxed everything out, there’s more to do now, including a new map.

The level cap has been raised to 34, which in turn gives you access to new weapons, equipment, perks, and score streaks. There’s also a new specialist available, a robot named Reaper.

Finally, the Uplink game mode has been added to the rotation. Reached the downed satellite and carry it into the enemy base. Let us know how you’re enjoying the beta.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is due out on November 6 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.


Our Take
When Black Ops III’s setting was announced, there was some trepidation about how it might change the gameplay. I’m interested to hear from those that have reached the level cap what they think now that they’ve played. Based on my own time with it at Gamescom, it still felt very much in line with all of the things Call of Duty is known for. It didn’t suddenly become a different game.
