If you’ve been looking forward to the Call of Duty WW2 open beta that was supposed to be coming out tomorrow, September 29, we’ve got some good news for you! The beta is actually live now on the PC, meaning you can download it and play the game right now on PC.
The Call of Duty WW2 open beta is currently exclusive to PC, so if you’re a console owner then you’re unfortunately out of luck. The beta allows you to play on four different maps on a number of different game modes and divisions, along with taking part in the game’s new War mode, which pits two teams of players against each other as they try and accomplish a series of objectives.
Oddly enough, Steam doesn’t appear to know that the beta is actually live, so if you think that it’s not live just because Steam says so, go ahead and download it anyway. It’s only a day and you’ll still have the entire weekend to play Sledgehammer’s newest offering to the Call of Duty franchise.
Call of Duty: WW2 will be a nice change for a series that has been going further and further into the modern era over the course of the last ten years, ever since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare began the trend. While Treyarch gave the Second World War a send off with Call of Duty: World At War, the Call of Duty games have since stuck to the modern era until the huge amount of backlash against Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare sent the timeline scrambling backwards.
Either way, you can get on PC and play the Call of Duty WW2 open beta now. The real game, which will be releasing on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC, will be releasing on November 3. So if you can play it, go on and enjoy the beta!
