Call of Duty: World at War Beta Coming in October

Gaming Today

Multiplayer betas have proven to be very popular even on consoles, with Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4 proving that public beta tests aren’t just for PC games. Now Call of Duty: World at War will be following its predecessor’s example by releasing a multiplayer beta on both Xbox 360 and PC in October. Those looking to get into the 360 beta can register at the game‘s official website or pre-order the game at GameStop.

The open beta announcement also reveals that World at War is scheduled for release on November 11 (confirming what we had previously heard). A release date this close to the beta means that the beta will have little to no impact on the version of the game that ships, instead working more like an online demo that’s being passed off as a beta. Still, an early shot at some intense Call of Duty multiplayer is difficult to pass up.

Unfortunately, PlayStation 3 and Wii owners who don’t have access to other platforms will have to pass it up. Those unfortunate gamers can check out our recent preview of the game and cross their fingers that Treyarch will have managed to top their most recent mediocre COD offering with the help of the Call of Duty 4 engine and some extra development time.

They called me and told me how to get the beta. I filled out the info on the site they gave me and I still haven’t gotten the code e-mailed to me. It’s been about 5 days now.

they said we’d have the beta for a whole month but they ain’t delivered were still waiting and they ignore us when we ask everyone is well up for this game but they say xbox is more important so we have to wait pc gamers are not a happy bunch,the beta key give you a xbox link to get that pc version is an open beta it’s now 3 weeks and the full game is released and were all now saying this can’t be a beta it has to be a demo.i cancelled my preorder as did loads of others..
