Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Confirms Open Beta DetailsRichard WarrenGame Rant – Feed


The rumored multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is finally official, as Activision has confirmed that the game will be playable ahead of its November 13th release date. Within the announcement, the Black Ops Cold War open beta’s platforms were also confirmed, as well as how players can gain access to the beta.

Players can get early beta access by pre-ordering any edition of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and even earlier access if they pre-order a PS4 copy of the game. This Black Ops Cold War pre-order bonus was leaked a few days back, so it should not be too surprising to fans that have kept up to date on the news regarding the game. Open betas are common for just about every Call of Duty game in recent years, with Black Ops Cold War now set to continue that trend.

The beta was also confirmed to be releasing on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The PC beta will be playable through battlenet, which has typically been the platform for recent COD games’ PC releases. The amount of content that will be in the beta is unclear, as is the game’s release date. Given previous Call of Duty betas and a recent Black Ops Cold War multiplayer leak, player can expect a handful of maps, modes, and guns to feature within the trial period.


It is a bit surprising to see the beta being announced without a release date. Black Ops Cold War is coming closer and closer to its November 13th release date, meaning that the beta must release sooner rather than later. It is worth noting that the beta will eventually become open to all players, not just those who pre-order the game. Activision can certainly use this positive news, as a recent rumor that the next gen upgrade of Black Ops Cold War isn’t free will surely anger some players if true.

Little else was said about the beta, as Activision was essentially just confirming some of the recent leaks for the game. These leaks also included campaign details for Black Ops Cold War, future Call of Duty: Warzone tie-ins, and much more. The game’s ambitious and late reveal, while interesting, has had many of its surprises spoiled. This official beta information provided today is no different, sadly.

While not confirmed, the logical place to get more info on the beta’s release date and content would be Setember 9’s Black Ops Cold War multiplayer reveal. Until then, all players can do is rewatch the trailer for Black Ops Cold War’s campaign and wait patiently for more details on the game’s upcoming multiplayer beta.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One November 13th. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions are also coming.
