You can download and play the beta for free by accessing the Japanese page here:

https://store.xbox.com/ja-JP/Xbox...9a7b068e84

Make sure you are signed in and on the Japanese marketplace. If not, change the country by hitting the current country on the very bottom left and select Japan. Now you can click the buy/download button to get the beta Smilie

Clearer Instructions:
Quote from Kaetari View Post :
It worked for me. CoD: BO3 is downloading in my queue.

I would recommend doing it in this order:
1. Go to xbox.com and log in
2. Change locale [xbox.com]at bottom left of page to ?? (Japan)
3. Open up OP's link [xbox.com]
4. Download/Buy the beta. Make your best guess to which button is which. They should be similar to buying a game on English store page.
5. Enjoy!
Extra Tip:
Once the beta is downloading or installed after the above process, delete it and then download again from your preferred marketplace/store, it will show up there as purchased. This is to get your in-game preferred language. Because through above process the beta in-game language will be Japanese.

BEWARE if you change your market, you wont be able to change back for 6 months. I learned the hard way.
.
Not worth it if you ask me.

I believe thats if you change your actual region to you console, in this case you are just changing the marketplace store. Treyarch tweeted the same thing to warn people but quickly deleted once people informed them..

Confirmed as working. I am downloading now. Not entirely sure how I managed to fumble my way through the Japanese prompts, but I got it. Just click the green buttons! Haha

I tried this but never received a code after pre ordering on Amazon. I did receive it for the PS4 beta already, so that may have some play behind it...

After doing this can I immediately change the market to the U.S.? Or do I need to keep it as the Japanese region to play the beta?

it worked!
When I clicked the original first link, I was logged in but in the english site and I clicked on Bundle only and it said I had already purchased.

So I logged out.
logged in to the xbox site using a different login in.
Changed to Japan language
Clicked on the Green button (bundle only)

Turned on xbox, went to the store, scroll through "top played", found Black Ops III, clicked the icon
and on the left side you should see INSTALL and Pin to Home
I hit install and it's currently downloading

thank you to the op and Smoothness, repped
