The Call Of Duty WWII beta is now pre-loading and the beta starting Friday. Today The Playstation blog gave us a look at what we can expect from the beta.
You can get access to the COD WWII private beta by pre-ordering either digitally from your console or from select retailers. Once you pre-order you will be given a code, either emailed to you or printed on the bottom of your receipt. Once you receive your pre-order code go to The Call Of Duty beta site and enter the pre-order code and select your platform, your platform specific code will be emailed to you. Digital pre-orders will not receive a code, you just have to search for the beta on the console’s digital store.
The Private beta has been split into two weekends, The first weekend is exclusive to the PS4 while the second is available on both Xbox One and PS4.
- Weekend 1 starts at 10am Pacific / 5pm GMT on August 25 and will last until August 28 at 10am Pacific / 5pm GMT. This weekend is for Playstation 4 users only.
- Weekend 2 starts on 10am Pacific / 5pm GMT on September 1, and will last until September 4 at 10am Pacific / 5pm GMT. This Weekend Xbox One users get to jump in to the beta.
The beta will feature 3 multiplayer maps,
Ardennes Forest: Battle through the frigid snow-covered forest of the Ardennes during the Battle of the Bulge, the brutal final major offensive effort by the German army to punch through the Allied front lines. Engagements are fast and deadly in the dangerous, frozen woodland ruins. Stay alert in this medium size map fortified with emplaced MG42 machine guns waiting to annihilate enemy combatants.
Gibraltar: Battle through the fortified bastion and steep cliffs of Gibraltar, built as a strategic defense of the Mediterranean Sea and a major refueling and supply station for the Allied forces during WWII. Prepare for multilevel combat engagements and treacherous terrain in one of the most densely guarded and fought over places in Europe. Don’t neglect the lower lane, and use the defense batteries there to pick off flankers.
Pointe du Hoc: Fight through a fortified network of German bunker complexes atop the cliffs at Pointe du Hoc, an important strategic target overlooking the beaches of Normandy. Engage in fast-paced, close-quarters combat in the trenches, or flank the enemy in a brutal fight to lock down the nearby farmhouse and bunkers for control of key access routes to the bluff.
War mode will also be appearing during the beta, players will have to work together to fight off the enemy team while defending missions crucial to victory. Players will battle it out in the French village west of St. Lo.
Fight for control of a war-torn French village west of St. Lo, an important operation in the Allied push onward and out of the beachhead at Normandy. Allied and Axis forces battle for control of a strategic manner to secure a forward operating position. Bridge construction, ammo depot demolition and tank escorts are key strategic tasks in this do-or-die mission to dominate the enemy. Choose your equipment wisely – every decision can mean the difference between victory and defeat in this narrative-driven, objective-based multiplayer experience – a first for Call of Duty.
