The team at Sledgehammer Games has announced on their community page that Call of Duty: WWII’s open beta for PC will be kicking off on 9/29/17. They’ve also announced that they consider to be the minimum spec. If you’ve not participated in a beta before, these are designed to stress test the multiplayer servers, as well as the backend infrastructure that will support the game at launch. It also gives Activision and Sledgehammer valuable data with the widest possible variety of PC configuration, ensuring they’ve collected how it’ll perform on a variety of video cards, memory, motherboards, and more.
