Modern Warfare 2 Beta: Dates, How To Register, Details
The Modern Warfare 2 beta dates are fast approaching, as is the ability to register for the pre-release period. The upcoming reimagining of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is set to be the nineteenth mainline game in the series and a continuation of MW 2019. So if you're looking to get early access and take part in the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta, here's all the information you will need.
Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Beta Details
The release date for Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 was recently announced as October 28, giving players an earlier entry than we usually see for Call of Duty releases and allowing them to jump into the action and access the new Warzone map set to be released.
Like the previous entries from recent years, there will be a period of open beta exclusively for preorder customers before release so players can get to grips with the game. This will also allow Infinity Ward to iron out any issues that players run into and work on last-minute balancing.
The beta will be open to all players on the platforms that MW2 is set to release on, which currently includes the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. PlayStation players are also granted the opportunity to access the open beta earlier than other platforms as explained in this PlayStation blog post. How much earlier is still yet to be seen, but it is a great chance for Sony fans to get started early. The Cross-Gen Bundle is a special edition of the game that sits between the standard and collector's editions.
Even after the global reveal trailer for Modern Warfare 2 there is still no word yet on when this beta period is set to begin, but we can expect it to land sometime in the two months before release. Vanguard released on November 5 last year, with the beta happening in the middle of September, so expect a similar timeframe here. As we get more updates on the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta we will update this article, so make sure to check back.
However, we do know for sure that the beta is guaranteed to last at least two days, and is likely to carry your progress over to the main game when it launches, so you will have plenty of time to get your grind started.
That's our breakdown of how to access the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta, and now you know which edition of the game to preorder for early access, along with a general timeframe for when the open beta will occur.
