The modding tools were first announced in November.
If you were one of those people who signed up for the closed Alpha for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Modding tools then it appears you should have access this week. This comes after it was announced last month that the Alpha would be starting off soon. It seems you should be checking your inbox for access now.
Even if you signed up, it’s possible you don’t have access just yet, though. The developers have said only chosen people from the modding community are going to be getting an invite right now. Treyarch also said, “incredible amount of testing and iteration” for the tools will help “lay the foundation for an open beta.”
The company has said it will be taking a good long look at the data the Alpha provides in order to launch a beta a few months from now. All of this is long awaited, as Treyarch announced it would be bringing modding tools to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on the PC back in November.
