Activision and Sledgehammer Games have finally revealed when the Call of Duty: WWII PC beta will take place.
The Call of Duty: WWII multiplayer beta on PS4 and Xbox One came and went a few weeks back. Millions of players on both consoles got to try it out, and Sledgehammer got plenty of valuable feedback. It was a win-win for everyone, except for the PC community. Finally, after waiting for so long, the multiplayer beta is coming to PC, and you don’t have to pre-order the game to try it out.
The Call of Duty: WWII open beta kicks off on PC starting September 29 and runs through October 2. Players can download the beta off of Steam with pre-load information coming at a later date. Working with Raven Software, Sledgehammer is looking to deliver the best experience possible on Steam on launch, and is hoping to do the following with the beta:
- Stress test core gameplay systems and online backend infrastructure at scale
- Provide PC fans with their first hands-on experience of the boots-on-the-ground combat coming in Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer
- Engage with the PC community to fine-tune and optimize the PC experience for November
Finally, here are the minimum specs you’ll need to play the beta. These aren’t the final specs, which won’t be revealed until closer to launch.
