There’s currently a Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Alpha event going on right now, but it’s unfortunately exclusive to the PlayStation 4 right now. Luckily Activision have provided the dates for the PC early pre-order Beta and Open Beta as well, which will include crossplay across all platforms the game is launching on.
So if you want to jump into the Beta for COD Black Ops Cold War on PC you will have to wait until October 17th, unless if you pre-ordered the game then you’ll get access 2 days earlier on October 15th. The entire event will run until October 19th.
Of course though, PlayStation 4 players will get an extra weekend beforehand all to themselves, with the pre-order Beta starting on October 8th, then opening up to all PS4 users regardless of a pre-order on October 10th and will finish on October 12th.
|October 8th-9th||PlayStation 4 pre-order Beta|
|October 10th-12th||PlayStation 4 Open Beta|
|October 15th-16th||PC pre-order, Xbox, PlayStation 4 pre-order|
|October 17th-19th||All platforms Open Beta|
Apparently, the BO Cold War Beta will include 4 game modes, including the classics Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Kill Confirmed as well as the new mode Combined Arms: Domination.
CoD: Black Ops Cold War releases on PC and consoles on November 13th.
