You can pre-load the Modern Warfare beta on PS4 prior to September 12.
As much as Modern Warfare's night-vision aesthetic stands out to me, I'm not exactly dying to dip back into Call of Duty multiplayer at this juncture. More importantly, this beta test includes cross-play.
Xbox One and PC users will get their first glimpse of the Modern Warfare beta from September 19-23 at 10:00am PT.
The rest of the Beta period, from Saturday, September 14, to the morning of Monday, September 16, is free to all PS4 owners. The beta will launch first on PS4 before being made available to other platforms later this month.
According to Activision, who offered Beta details on their official Games Blog, the Beta will let players try out new gameplay mechanics that sets Modern Warfare apart from previous entries, including "bullet penetration, gun mounting, door breaching and night vision multiplayer gameplay maps".
It's also worth noting that the final version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will support cross-play between PC, Xbox One and PS4.
It's nearly time to get into the Open Beta.
The first Beta Test Weekend is exclusively for PS4 owners, running from Thursday, September 12 to the morning of Monday, September 16.
"Be among the first to experience the intense multiplayer action, ranging from the quick, close quarter 2v2 Gunfight mode, to traditional 6v6 multiplayer gameplay and larger player count firefights". It will detect digital pre-orders, but for those who physically pre-ordered the game, an email will be sent to you with a code to redeem on the Store. This is the key to accessing the Beta, so follow these instructions to access the Open Beta as early as possible. In this mode, players will also be able to drive vehicles (as we can see in the following trailer).
Of course, we already know that the game will feature a 50v50 Ground War mode upon its release on October 25, which is, by far, the biggest game mode in the history of the Call of Duty franchise, excluding the Blackout mode from Black Ops III.
Beta Code Not Needed: If you pre-ordered Modern Warfare digitally, you are automatically ready to download the Beta.
Rounds in the new 2v2 "Modern Warfare" multiplayer mode often last less than a minute.
Because the second Modern Warfare beta will be available on all platforms, cross-play will be enabled for players on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Looking for more precise details on available content?
