What to expect from the Call of Duty Gamescom 2015 conference: Black Ops 3

It's unusual for a game to have a conference all to itself, but that's exactly what's happening for Call of Duty at Gamescom this year.

Black Ops 3 is set to come out in November, and already know that the multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is coming this month, but we don't think that's all Activision is going to talk about.

The event is set to be the stage for the global eSports reveal. (In case you're wondering, eSports is the term used for video game competitions and tournaments).

On the official Call of Duty website, it reads: "eSports will be the focus of a special Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Global eSports Reveal live stream from Gamescom 2015 in Cologne, Germany. Treyarch developers will be on hand to share some exciting news and features coming with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3."

Additionally, some of the world's best Call of Duty players will be playing a series of show matches live for us to watch, which we can't wait to see.

If you can't wait until tomorrow's live stream, you can get your gaming fix now by following the links below.
