Activision and Infinity Ward have finally confirmed when exactly the two multiplayer beta weekends for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be held, so make sure to mark your calendars. There will be two beta weekend in total and both will take place towards the end of October. In order to gain access to the beta weekends, you must pre-order a copy of Infinite Warfare. If you pre-ordered from a retailer (GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy, etc.), they should have given you a beta code which you can enter at this website.
If you pre-ordered Infinite Warfare digitally through either the PlayStation Store or Xbox Live Marketplace, you’ll be able to download the beta client automatically, no code required. Only PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will be able to participate in the beta weekends (sorry PC folks).
The first beta weekend, which will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 platform, will run from Friday, October 14 at 10 a.m. PST (1 p.m. EST) to Monday, October 17 at the same time. The second weekend, which will be available to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players, will begin on Friday, October 21 and run until Monday, October 24 using the same time restrictions as the first weekend. Infinity Ward says it will reveal the specific maps and modes which will be included in the beta at a later date.
