Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta Sessions Begin Today – Full Details (VIDEO)
Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot is closely approaching next month and the experience is proving to be quite different from the original 2007 title. For starters, the military shooter is set to feature a much grittier campaign, with morally-ambiguous warfare depicted across its single-player storyline. Of course, Multiplayer is making a return as well, and while it won’t include a decidedly “badass” feature, the online mode appears to be shaping up well by the looks of the game’s extended showcase of gameplay.
As laid out by Activision, players will now have their first crack at Multiplayer through a new string of beta sessions. Each session is separated into four sections spread across two weekends, with PS4 getting first dibs, as per the game’s timed-exclusivity deal with Sony. Today begins the first of these betas; it exclusive to PlayStation 4 owners who pre-ordered Modern Warfare. This particular session is scheduled to last from September 12th (10 am PDT) until an undisclosed time on September 13th.
A second session is to follow shortly after on September 14th, offering any and all PS4 players to the party until it ends September 16th. Though the following week will finally include pre-orderers for PC and Xbox One, all PS4 users will still have access to the beta for the remainder of the weekend. The platforms are set to go live in a cross-play beta from September 19th to September 20th, with an open beta for all platforms (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One) concluding the proceedings from September 21st to September 23rd.
