'Black Ops Cold War' Multiplayer Beta Dates Announced, PS4 Players Get Early Access

Activision and Treyarch have announced the dates for the Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer beta tests. In typical Call Of Duty fashion, you're going to need to grab a notebook to keep track of the various dates and make sure you're around to try out the upcoming shooter on the platform you actually own.

The good news is that we don't have long to wait. Black Ops Cold War beta tests kick off in October, meaning we're mere weeks away from being able to jump in and try out Treyarch's latest effort. The bad news - at least for those of you on Xbox and PC - is that PlayStation gamers once again get first dibs.

Take a look at the schedule for yourself below.

The first Beta Weekend is exclusively for PlayStation 4 owners, and runs from Thursday, October 8th to Monday, October 12th. Early Access runs between the 8th and 9th, and is only available for players who have pre-ordered Black Ops Cold War on PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5. Between the 10th and 12th, the PlayStation 4 beta is open to all PS4 owners regardless of if you pre-ordered or not - though you'll need PS Plus in most territories.

The second Beta Weekend is for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC owners. This round of tests will also support the previously announced cross-platform play, so you can get stuck in with friends on other consoles. It kicks off Thursday, October 15th, and lasts through to Monday, October 19th.

PlayStation 4 owners can play through the entire second Beta Weekend regardless of whether or not they pre-ordered. If you're playing on Xbox One or PC, however, you will need to have pre-ordered to play the beta between the 15th and 16th. The second open beta commences on the 17th, and that's when every player on every platform can get involved, no pre-order needed. Phew... got all that?

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will then launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC on November 13th. The game will support cross-gen cross-platform play, and will also feature free post-launch content updates (including maps and weapons), as well as shared progression with Call Of Duty: Warzone.
