Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta Open to Everyone on PS4 This Weekend

October 18, 2016Written by Jason Dunning


Because they want more player feedback, Infinity Ward is opening up the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta to all PlayStation 4 players this weekend, no pre-order necessary. By downloading the 18+GB file from the PlayStation Store (North America, Europe), you’ll be able to access the Infinite Warfare Beta from Friday, October 21 at 10am PT/1pm ET to Monday, October 24 at 10am PT/1pm ET.

During the first beta weekend, Infinity Ward added the Kill Confirmed and Gun Game modes, Precinct map, and FTL Combat Rig. For the upcoming weekend, they promise “even more surprises.”

Lead Multiplayer Designer Joe Cecot talked about opening up the beta and improving the game based on player feedback:

Thank you to the awesome Call of Duty community and your response to the Beta. We’ve been watching players experiment with different Rigs, all unique to their playstyles, and dig into our new weapon crafting system. We’ve also introduced a new matchmaking system to provide the highest quality matches possible, which the Beta has helped us optimize for launch.

The feedback and player data is exactly what we need in order to make our day one experience on November 4 the best it can be in the final game. So much so that we’d like to open the beta up even further starting this Friday for all PS4 players. We are constantly fine tuning and balancing the MP experience to meet player expectations and our design goals, so huge thanks from all of us at the studio.

The beta will also be available on Xbox One this weekend, but players will still need to have Infinite Warfare pre-ordered to gain access.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare releases on November 4 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
