"Call of Duty" is one of the most popular action oriented multiplayer franchises in the world. Fans around the world wait expectantly throughout the year to get their hands on the latest entry into the series. However, in the last few years, publisher Activision has only released Call of Duty games that focus on the future state of combat and warfare. This has not gone down well with some fans, who demanded that the series should return to its root and come out with a game based in the Second World War setting.

This year, Sledgehammer Games and Activision have finally decided to give fans what they were yearning for and so, revealed "Call of Duty: WWII." What little of the game that has been revealed to the general public was met with positive reactions and fans desperately want to get their hands on the title.

Although the actual game releases this November, some of the fans will be able to get their hands on the Beta version of the game in August. Here are some important factors to remember before jumping into the game's beta event.

When and how to enter the beta event?

The first beta event will begin on August 25 and will run through August 28. During this time only PS4 players will be able to engage in the game. A second beta is also planned from September 1 to September 4. This time both PS4 and Xbox One players will be able to play the game. Currently, there is no confirmation of the date when the developers will host a beta event for the game on the PC.

There are only two ways of entering the beta events.

Players will either have to pre-order the game to receive a ticket to the beta event or they can also win a ticket through certain contests. PS4 owners can start downloading the beta version and if they have pre-ordered the game, can also start playing. PS+ memberships will not be needed to run the beta on the Sony console, but the Xbox Live Gold membership is necessary to run the beta on the Xbox One.

What content will be available in the beta?

The beta version will come with "Divisions" for customizing the specialty of a particular class, replacing the older Pick 10 system. It will also arrive with at least three multiplayer maps, while more may be added later. The single-player campaign will not be present in the beta version.

Game modes will include popular ones like Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Hardpoint. Sledgehammer will also allow limited progression for players, but this progress will not be carried over to the final game once it releases.
