How to get in to the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta without a code

2 min read


Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is currently in closed beta on PlayStation 4, bringing some futuristic multiplayer action in to the hands of those who’ve pre-ordered the game. According to those who’ve been playing, it’s a great deal of fun – with its new movement being a particular highlight.

That said, there’s a good chance you’d like to get in to the beta, but aren’t exactly keen on pre-ordering to secure a code. Well, you don’t have to. Some industrious Redditors have discovered that you can download and participate in the beta without a key. Here’s how.

All you need to do is create a brand new Singaporean account.

  • Create a new PSN account, select Singapore as country
  • Use Jurong East as city
  • Use 609786 as postal code
  • Use 256 Jurong East Street 24 as your address. It’s a McDonalds, so feel free to sing “ba da ba ba baaaaaa….I’m Loving it” as you head to the PS Store to download the freely available beta
  • If you then set your new Singaporean account as primary you’ll be able to play the beta using any of your accounts.

The beta download clocks in at around 12.5GB, offering three maps and 7 multiplayer modes to try out.  As a warning though, it is a beta – so you can expect some issues. The beta also relies on dedicated servers, which have a limited capacity during this testing phase – so you may not be able to jump straight in to a game.

In fact, it may take you a while.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s beta will run until Sunday, August 23 on PS4. Xbox One and PC gamers will get their own beta next week.

Call of Duty Black Ops 3 is coming to a console or PC near you on November 6.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
