The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta is live today on PS4 for players who preordered the game, allowing fans to finally try out the full scope of the multiplayer for themselves. An alpha test last month showcased the new 2v2 Gunfight mode, giving just a small taste of what was to come. This beta is the first of a few iterations, and getting access now will allow you to participate in all of them. Here’s the full Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta schedule:
Weekend 1 (PS4 Only)
- September 12-13 – PS4 Early Access. For preorders and people with special codes (like we have to hand out right here!).
- September 14-16 – PS4 Open Access. Open to all PS4 owners, no purchase or special codes required.
* Full Open Access for PS4 owners will continue into the second weekend.
Weekend 2 (Crossplay Test)
- September 19-20 – Xbox One/PC Early Access. For all PS4 owners and those who preordered on Xbox One or PC. You can also use one of the codes we give out here to get in early on Xbox One or PC.
- September 21 – 23 – Open to All. No purchase, no code, and no PS4? Now’s your time to finally hop in and play the beta for yourself.
*For the duration of the second weekend beta test, full cross-platform play will be active.
Over the course of both weekends, the beta will feature a suite of changing maps, modes, and content for players to participate in. Activision and Infinity Ward promise “surprises” throughout. But enough of the nitty-gritty details! How do you get yourself a code? Simple. Just grab a code from the widget below. Since the beta is already underway, we want to give you as much time as possible with the game, so we’re giving our loyal readers a first come, first served opportunity to grab codes and get playing.
