Call of Duty: WWII: What’s in the Beta?

Call of Duty WWII

The launch of Call of Duty: WWII is quickly approaching and now we have some concrete information to share about what will be found in the game’s private beta.

The private beta will be coming to PS4 owners first starting on August 25. Sledgehammer Games has announced what you will find and not find in the beta starting in a few days in a blog post today.

Here’s the list of what you will find in the beta:

  • Maps – At least three Multiplayer maps, including: Pointe Du Hoc, Ardennes, and Gibraltar.
  • War – Operation Breakout
  • Modes – Fan-favorite modes, including Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Hardpoint.
  • Divisions – Enlist in the Infantry, Expeditionary, Airborne, Armored, or Mountain Division. You are not limited to any one Division, and we encourage you to try them all!
  • Progression – Players will begin at Soldier Rank 1 and rank up through a limited progression to unlock weapons, scorestreaks, equipment, and Basic Training Skills.

There’s a lot of hype about the new Headquarters social experience but that won’t be available in the beta. Headquarters used to be an actual game mode from the Call of Duty series but now it has become a social hub for the new game.

Here’s the list of features you won’t find in the upcoming multiplayer beta:

  • Headquarters – We’re testing the match-making of this all-new social experience, but access to this space will not be active during the Multiplayer Beta.
  • Supply Drops, and Loot – These customization features that add depth and personality to your soldier will not be included in the Multiplayer Beta.
  • eSports – Ranked Play, Game Battles, and our suite of competitive features will be accessible when we release in November.
  • Additional content not in the Private Multiplayer Beta includes: full progressionremaining maps and modes, additional War Mode maps, and the full armory of weaponsscorestreaks, Basic Training, and equipment.

More information about the beta will be announced at the Call of Duty: WWII live stream at GamesCom 2017 on August 22.
