Going back in time to its roots and sticking with boots-on-the-ground combat, Call Of Duty: WWII saw a successful console beta a few weeks ago. With the positive feedback received, Sledgehammer Games is hard at work to improve the multiplayer before its release on November 3rd.
With the public console testing out of the way, it is now time for PC players to play and test out the multiplayer on their respective platform to ensure the game will work on all types of PC builds and fix any balancing issues that mouse and keyboard might introduce over a gamepad.
Instead of a key based beta, Call Of Duty: WWII will release on Steam as an Open Beta to all on September 29th and will run until October 2nd.
The key goals for this beta are as follows:
- Stress test core gameplay systems and online backend infrastructure at scale
- Provide PC fans with their first hands-on experience of the boots-on-the-ground combat coming in Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer
- Engage with the PC community to fine-tune and optimize the PC experience for November
