Later this month, those who pre-ordered Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be able to experience a sneak peek of the game’s multiplayer component courtesy of a pair of beta weekends, and now Activision has detailed exactly what beta participants will have access to.
Activision shared the contents of the upcoming beta courtesy of a new post on the Call of Duty blog. There will be two beta weekends in total; one that is only available to PlayStation 4 players (October 14th - 17th), and another that’s open to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players (October 21st -24th). Unfortunately for PC players, they will not be able to participate in the beta and will have to wait until Infinite Warfare launches on November 4th to play the game.
In addition to the below content, the beta will also allow participants to try out Infinite Warfare’s Mission Teams meta game. As part of the multiplayer experience, players can join one of four different teams and receive special missions from their team’s NPC leader.
Completing these missions grants rewards such as XP bonuses, unique cosmetic items, and special prototype weapons. There will be four different teams to join in the full game, but only two will be available in the beta: the JTF Wolverines and the Orion Initiative.
The beta contents are as follows:
- Frontier (two-lane circular map)
- Frost (three-lane linear map)
- Throwback (three-lane angled map)
- Team Deathmatch
- Kill Confirmed
- Warfighter (mid-range assault fighter)
- Merc (heavy weapons specialist)
- Synaptic (speedy close quarters combat robot)
