CoD: Black Ops Cold War beta is about to begin today for all pre-orders. In its light, we’re here to share more info regarding the start times and content available during this time. Black Ops Cold War’s PC beta will be fully accessible to PS4 players only, while the PC and Xbox One players have to deem the pre-order access, meaning that only those who have pre-ordered the game will be able to play it in the first two days of its timeline.
The PC Black Ops Cold War beta preload had begun two days ago, allowing full download of the game’s files ahead of its accessibility. Now that we have everything set and ready let’s jump to the official start times.
- Black Ops Cold War beta will kick-off on Thursday, October 15, at 10 AM PT for PC and Xbox One pre-orders. Accessible to everyone on the PS4.
- Over the coming weekend (October 17 through October 19), the game will be accessible to download for each individual regardless of the pre-order status.
Content available at beta
The beta content will include a variety of multiplayer game modes and will support cross-play between all platforms. The promised progression system will also occur, allowing players to sense the grind in unlocking gadgets, killstreaks, weapon modifications, and more. The progress is unlikely to carry over when the game releases.
While we do not know what kind of game modes there will be (besides the Fireteam: Dirty Bomb, 6v6, and Combined Arms, which is a 12v12), there’s a high possibility of playlist shuffle during this time.
