The community’s “code-breaking efforts” are responsible for the extension.
The open beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was set to end today but has been given a slight extension. It’s now slated to end tomorrow at 10 AM PT, giving PS4, Xbox One and PC players another full day of skill-based matchmaking and bizarre sliding physics fun. Cross-play is also active, allowing for more refinement on the system.
What brought about the extension of the beta? It was actually due to the community solving a bunch of codes emailed by Activision. Fairly straightforward but Treyarch praised the “code-breaking efforts” of its fans all the same.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is slated to release on November 13th worldwide. It will be available for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. As a follow-up to the first Black Ops, it will see Mason, Woods and Hudson reunited and working with a new protagonist named Bell. The crew will be looking to take out a Soviet spy codenamed Perseus before bad things happen.
🚨OPEN BETA EXTENDED🚨
Thanks to the code-breaking efforts of our incredible community, an extra day of the #BlackOpsColdWar Beta has been unlocked!
