The Modern Warfare beta dates have been confirmed, and thanks to Sony's timed exclusivity deal with Activision, PS4 players will be able to get their hands on the game before their Xbox One and PC friends. Here are all of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta dates:

  • PlayStation 4 Exclusive Beta
    o September 12 -13 (Early Access, PlayStation 4)
    o September 14 – 16 (Open Beta, PlayStation 4)
  • Beta featuring crossplay testing
    o September 19 – 20 (Early Access, PC and Xbox One; Open Beta, PlayStation 4)
    o September 21 – 23 (Open Beta, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One)

Early access is available for any players who have pre-ordered Modern Warfare, then the open beta is for absolutely anyone who wants to download and play. There's a three-day gap between the PS4 beta and the rest of the platforms, but when the beta comes back for the second period, complete cross-play will be available for all platforms.

“Our studio goal for Modern Warfare was to create a completely new experience, and the most varied, customizable and realistic-feeling Call of Duty multiplayer,” said Geoff Smith, multiplayer gameplay director at Infinity Ward. “Our design goal is for gamers to have fun by playing again and again with their friends, where the action will feel fresh, but also familiar for all players every time they jump in.”
