The Call of Duty: WWII Private Multiplayer Beta delivers a small slice of the full multiplayer experience for players to partake in, including Divisions, a reimagining of the create-a-class system. Divisions give players the ability to reinforce their individual play styles by choosing from five iconic World War II divisions, each with specific division training and division weapon skills. While the final design of Divisions is still in-progress, the Private Multiplayer Beta test will provide players an introduction to five in-game Divisions.
Across both testing weekends, players in the Call of Duty: WWII Private Multiplayer Beta will have access to multiple multiplayer maps set against the backdrop of the greatest conflict in history, designed for the fast-paced, grounded multiplayer battles Call of Duty fans know and love. In addition, players will test War Mode, the all-new team-driven assault and defend game mode, developed in partnership with Raven Software. Additional multiplayer content coming this November in the final product, including Headquarters, the esports suite of features and functionality, Supply Drops and Loot as well as more maps and game modes are not available in the Private Multiplayer Beta.
Fans will have another opportunity to join the Call of Duty: WWII Private Multiplayer Beta during its second weekend of testing as it opens up to players that have pre-ordered Call of Duty: WWII at participating retailers on either PS4 or Xbox One. The second Private Multiplayer Beta weekend begins on Friday, September 1, and runs through Monday, September 4. Players who participate in the Call of Duty: WWII Private Multiplayer Beta during either weekend will receive the exclusive Private Multiplayer Beta Combat Pack for use in Multiplayer, including a unique helmet, calling card and emblem.
