"Call of Duty" is one of the most well-loved and recognized video game series around. So, it is not surprising to see that a lot of fans are awaiting the release of the latest title in the franchise – “Call of Duty: WWII.” Even though there is still some time for the game to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, developer Sledgehammer revealed that it will be hosting a beta event on the consoles soon.

The developers also revealed that the beta would strictly be focused on the multiplayer aspects of the upcoming game. However, fans were unsure what exact aspects of the game the beta would show off.

On august 15, Sledgehammer made a detailed revelation regarding the beta event and what the features to lookout for.

What will the private multiplayer beta bring?

The developers revealed that at least three maps will be provided in the Beta Version of the game. These maps will include the Ardennes, Point Du Hoc, and Gibraltar areas for players to engage in matches. However, the phrase “at least three maps” used by Sledgehammer indicates that there may be more maps added before the beta ends.

Among the modes that will be up for testing are the Team Deathmatch, Hardpoint, Domination, and the brand new War mode. This new mode is said to enhance the experience of the World War II setting and may be promising additions to the game.

Players will be able to experience the first operation, named Operation Breakout.

Call of Duty: WWII” will also replace the Pick 10 customization system that the previous games in the franchise have been known to deploy. Instead, the new game will introduce a Division system. During the multiplayer beta, the game will allow players to choose from Mountain, Armored, Airborne, Expeditionary, and Infantry divisions.

However, progression will be much slower in this version and only a handful of upgrades and new weapons can be unlocked.

Sledgehammer also revealed exact parts of the final game that will not make its way into the beta version. These included the supply drops, esports, and finally the headquarters. This last addition will serve as the social hub of the game where players can keep in touch with other Call of Duty gamers across the world.

When will the beta event be hosted?

Being a private beta, those who have preordered the upcoming game will be the only ones allowed to take part in it. The game will start running its beta on the PS4 between August 25 and August 28. A second run of the beta will be hosted from September 1 to September 4 on both the Xbox One and PS4 consoles.
