PS4 pre-orders can access it early on October 8th.
Following its recent alpha, Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will have its multiplayer beta later this week. A new trailer is currently available, showcasing the maps and modes that will be available. Check it out below.
Among the modes included are Team Deathmatch, VIP Escort, Domination, Kill Confirmed and Combined Arms (with Kill Confirmed replacing Hardpoint from the alpha). PS4 players will receive access to the beta first with pre-orders getting it from October 8th to 9th. The PS4 open beta runs from October 10th to 12th.
Next weekend sees Xbox One and PC pre-orders gaining early access from October 15th to 16th while the PS4 open beta returns. All platforms will receive access from October 17th to 19th. If you’re on current-gen platforms, note that the trailer features footage captured on next-gen platforms. Treyarch has also promised that the beta will be “quite the upgrade” over the alpha.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is out on November 13th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC.
