Weekend 1 Multiplayer Beta Kicks-off on PlayStation 4 Today Fans on Consoles and PC Can All Play Together in the Crossplay Multiplayer Open Beta Next Weekend, Previewing the Deepest Call of Duty Multiplayer Experience to Date
September 13, 2019 - Today, the highly-anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta* kicksoff for PlayStation 4 fans to get hands-on with an early look of the game's critically-acclaimed multiplayer. Throughout the weekend, Infinity Ward will be logging valuable feedback and gameplay information ahead of the game's global launch on October 25.
Following the recent Modern Warfare 2v2 Gunfight Open Alpha, which was the largest Alpha or Beta in Call of Duty history on PlayStation 4, the Modern Warfare Beta will deliver a deeper look at several elements of Modern Warfare's multiplayer universe, including tight close-quarter 2v2
Gunfight gameplay, traditional 6v6 Multiplayer and large-player count experiences on massive maps featuring a wide array of vehicles. The Beta will expand in Weekend 2 to include all platforms, and for the first time in Call of Duty history, feature crossplay testing as fans across console and PC will be able to play the Modern Warfare Beta together prior to next month's launch.
Winner of the "Best Online Multiplayer" by Game Critics Best of E3 2019, Modern Warfare's ultimate multiplayer playground delivers an action-packed online experience with best-in-class down the barrel gameplay, along with unprecedented depth and variety in gameplay. The Beta test will
feature a suite of new multiplayer modes that redefine the Call of Duty sandbox, ranging from the close-quarter frenetic 2v2 Gunfight, up to and including the epic large-scale Ground War mode supporting up to 64 players, night gameplay maps, and the fully immersive Realism mode.
"With Modern Warfare, we're bringing the gaming community together like never before. Starting with the beta we are going to be soliciting player input and feedback that will help us to polish and refine the Day One experience at launch," said Patrick Kelly, Creative
Director and co-Studio Head, Infinity Ward. "Starting this weekend we're planning to give players access to a new features and maps each day. Then next weekend, we will introduce crossplay, enabling players to connect with friends and other gamers across platforms.
