The first Call of Duty: WWII beta test is now underway on PS4

The first of two planned multiplayer beta tests for Call of Duty: WWII is now underway on PS4, allowing those who pre-ordered the game to go hands on well before release.

Set to take place throughout this very weekend, this inaugural test is exclusive to Sony’s platform for marketing reasons. The good news, though, is that it won’t be the only one, as both Xbox One and PS4 owners can look forward to a second beta from September 1st to September 4th.

The Call of Duty: WWII Private Multiplayer Beta delivers a small slice of the full multiplayer experience for players to partake in, including Divisions, a reimagining of the create-a-class system. Divisions give players the ability to reinforce their individual play styles by choosing from five iconic World War II divisions, each with specific division training and division weapon skills. While the final design of Divisions is still in-progress, the Private Multiplayer Beta test will provide players an introduction to five in-game Divisions.

Across both testing weekends, players in the Call of Duty: WWII Private Multiplayer Beta will have access to multiple multiplayer maps set against the backdrop of the greatest conflict in history, designed for the fast-paced, grounded multiplayer battles Call of Duty fans know and love. In addition, players will test War Mode, the all-new team-driven assault and defend game mode, developed in partnership with Raven Software. Additional multiplayer content coming this November in the final product, including Headquarters, the esports suite of features and functionality, Supply Drops and Loot as well as more maps and game modes are not available in the Private Multiplayer Beta.

See you on the battlefield, soldier!
