Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches a little over a month from now, but as is the norm with Call of Duty games, before that happens, players will have the chance to try out its multiplayer component over the course of a beta period.

Some players have already dipped their toes in the water with the recent multiplayer alpha that was available to all PS4 players, but according to Treyarch designer Tony Flame, the beta is going to be a significant step up over the multiplayer alpha. In a recent tweet, Flame wrote that the beta “is quite an upgrade over the alpga”, mentioning “new features” and improvements to the “core feel”.

The beta kicks off for PS4 players with pre-orders on October 8 and for Xbox One and PC players with pre-orders a week afterward, on October 15. PS4’s open beta will begin on October 12, while the beta will become open to all across every platforms on October 17, until October 19.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will launch on November 13 for PS5, Xbox Series X / S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Check out some footage from its campaign through here. The game’s Zombies mode was recently unveiled as well- check that out through here.
