Today, Sledgehammer Games announced that Call of Duty: WWII will have a private beta, which will include brand new maps and a first look at the game’s War Mode experience. The game will be released on November 3 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
Developer Sledgehammer Games recently posted its journey to the private beta in a new blog post:
We’re thrilled to finally share the Call of Duty: WWII Private Multiplayer Beta with you beginning August 25th on PS4. While this Beta is only a small part of the feature-rich Multiplayer experience coming in November, it is a critical test of our core gameplay, our game systems, as well as a stress test of our online infrastructure at scale.
We love the active dialog we have with the Call of Duty community, and value the exchange of ideas and constructive feedback we have with fans. Your feedback will help us finalize features, optimize gameplay balance, and refine the remaining development roadmap to launch. So please explore, rank up, and have fun. Share as much feedback as you can – everything helps. The development team will be playing non-stop, and we’ll be monitoring performance and collecting valuable data around the clock.
As you can imagine, we receive a lot of feedback internally from the development team playing the game, but it’s a different experience when fans around the world play together for the first time. Two of our biggest announcements at E3, Divisions and War Mode, will be live for the first time and we look forward to sharing them with you during the Private Multiplayer Beta.
The Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer Beta will be available for those who have pre-ordered the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the beta available on August 25 for PS4 users, and on September 1 for PS4 and Xbox One users. Check out the trailer for the private beta above, look at Ron’s hands-on experience of the game at E3, and catch Kay’s interview with a couple of the staff involved here.
