After a rather rocky start (if this is the first time you’re hearing of the massive hate it has received, i’ll simply assume that you were in a coma), Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has been promoted and marketed vigorously — and yet carefully — as a means to mend broken edges (keeping in mind that there is no such thing as negative publicity). And following the unexpectedly well received Story trailer which was released a few days ago, we finally have the beta dates confirmation.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s official multiplayer beta is scheduled to begin next month on October 14. What’s more, Activision has also announced the entire schedule, which includes the schedule details for PS4 and Xbox One. As was announced previously, the beta will not be coming to PC, although the full game is.
The CoD: IW multiplayer beta will stretch over two weekends, kicking off at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 10:30 PM IST on October 14 on the Playstation 4 for people who have pre-ordered. The first weekend will come to an end on Monday, October 17 at the same time. As for the second weekend, the Infinite Warfare beta will be available to both Xbox One and PS4 pre-ordering customers from October 21 through 24 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 10:30 PM IST.
Activision had a different approach for Black Ops III. They eventually opened the beta up to all players, on all platforms, regardless of their pre-order status. The company has not said if it would follow the same approach for Infinite Warfare’s multiplayer beta.
As of now, we’re oblivious to what all the beta will consist of, but that may not be the case for long as Activision plans on revealing the beta’s contents officially “in the coming weeks”
As is well known, the remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare will be included with Infinite Warfare’s premium versions (no official confirmation about separate sales). The campaign along with the multiplayer are both getting updated for new systems, but Activision has not stated if there will be a beta for Modern Warfare Remastered’s multiplayer as well.
The full game will officially launch this year on November 4th. Mark your calendars.
