Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has been letting prolific modders loose with official modding tools in closed alpha for a while now, but now it's time for anyone with even a slight interest and some ability to get involved in the open beta.
See how the professionals do it in our list of the best Skyrim mods.
Back in April Treyarch started sending out invites for the modding close alpha and together the modding community and Treyarch have been testing and iterating on the tools, refining them to make them more usable for a wider audience.
"We’re pleased to announce that today marks the beginning of our open beta on PC," Treyarch said in an update today.
"Opening access to modding and mapping tools to a wider audience will allow us to more effectively address bugs, add polish, and move closer to a complete suite of PC features. While these tools are most certainly for the community, they wouldn’t be possible without the community itself, which is why we’re grateful for your patience and participation."
Over the next few months Treyarch plan to keep on developing these tools, along with feedback from the open beta. Additionally, the open beta will include an unranked server browser so people running mods can connect to each other’s custom game lobbies. Unranked dedicated server files are still under development and their intended release is currently TBD.
The Steam Workshop should be going live soon, letting you browse some of the stuff created in the closed alpha.
