Do you want to be one of the first players to get to grips with Call of Duty: WWII? If you answered that question positively, this article is for you.
A couple of days ago, Activision and Sledgehammer Games unveiled the next Call of Duty game, Call of Duty: WWII. The game will take players and the franchise back to the World War II setting for the first time since Call of Duty 3. There was plenty of info thrown about during the initial livestream, but perhaps one of the finer points was that there’s going to be a closed beta on PS4 and you’re invited. Kind of.
If you want to get access to the closed beta, you’ll need to pre-order a copy of the game. You can do this via PSN, Amazon, or where ever you normally pre-order your games. Then you’ll receive a code from your chosen retailer which you can redeem to get access to the Call of Duty: WWII closed beta.
However, there’s no date set for the beta – at least not yet, though we imagine it’ll likely take place sometime during the summer months, similar to previous releases.
Now, we’re not so keen on the idea of keeping betas behind a paywall, though if history is to repeat itself then those who haven’t pre-ordered will probably get a taste of the game anyway. If memory serves, this was the case with Black Ops 3 and Infinite Warfare, where the first few days of the beta were just for those who pre-ordered, but then the beta was extended by a couple of days and was free for everyone to try out. This makes sense, really, as betas these days are generally glorified demos. Activision will want as many people to sample the game as possible in an effort to drum up some business, so it makes sense to let everyone play the beta at some point.
