The first weekend beta — running from Thursday, Sept. 12 to Monday, Sept. 16 — is exclusive to PlayStation 4 players. Anyone on PS4 can play the beta starting on Saturday, Sept. 14. But Activision is opening the gates a little early for those that pre-order, with early access starting Sept. 12. However, Activision warned that some territories may require players to have a PlayStation Plus subscription.
The second weekend beta runs from Thursday, Sept. 19 to Monday, Sept. 23. Players who’ve pre-ordered can participate in the beta early on Sept. 19. All players on all platforms can play the new Call of Duty beta from Saturday, Sept. 21 to Sept. 23.
The second weekend also includes cross-play — meaning players on different platforms can compete on the battlefield together. Players concerned about the file size can pre-load the beta starting Tuesday, Sept. 10.
Activision and Infinity Ward will release Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One on Oct. 25.
