Packed with all-new Multiplayer game modes and options, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Early Access Beta kicks off Thursday, September 12th, exclusively on PlayStation 4, then comes to Xbox One and PC on Thursday, September 19th.



We couldn't be more excited to get this early version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare into your hands for testing and feedback. As we're giving you a sneak peek at the game before it's finished, it's essential to establish what the Beta is, what it isn't, and what your participation means to us.

Modern Warfare is still very much a work in progress. "Beta" means that we have several weeks to go before the game is ready to launch, and we're going to be doing a ton of fine-tuning, balancing, polishing, and even adding a few final features. Your input is super important throughout this process.

Beta also means that you may find some game or platform features not working properly, and game crashes may occur. Please reach out to us for help with general technical issues. If you run into any bugs during the Beta, let us know by going to our Modern Warfare Beta bug form, or hit us up on Reddit.

We can't wait to bring the rest of the game to you on October 25th.

Here are some of the things you can expect to experience in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta.
