Soldiers! Starting this Friday, September 1 at 10 a.m. PDT you can get your boots on the ground and start playing Call of Duty: WWII during the game’s private multiplayer beta, lasting through to Monday, September 4 at 10 a.m. PDT.
To access the beta, you will need to pre-order Call of Duty: WWII from a participating retailer. Pre-orders from specific retailers will come with five premium gear sets to use when the game launches November 3. And if you pre-ordered from the Xbox Store, you can start your pre-download today so you’ll be able to jump right into the action starting on September 1 at 10 a.m. PDT.
Best of all, during the private beta you’ll have a chance to play through a variety of different maps representing the locations of iconic battles throughout Europe, like the frigid snow-covered Ardennes Forest, the steep cliffs of Gibraltar, and Pointe du Hoc’s fortified network of German bunkers.
You’ll also have a chance to try Call of Duty: WWII‘s war mode, an all-new game mode that encourages teamplay to defeat the enemy through assault and defend missions across key objectives.
Participants in the Call of Duty: WWII private multiplayer beta will receive the Private Beta Combat Pack when the game launches on November 3. This pack includes a specially-themed helmet, calling card, and emblem for you to equip and showoff to let everyone know “you were there…”
Naturally, one of the key elements of this private multiplayer beta is to help Sledgehammer Games, the developer of Call of Duty: WWII, to gather feedback from players. Be sure to follow @SledgehammerGames on Twitter to find out ways you can help make this the best Call of Duty multiplayer game yet!
