The ‘Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II’ beta is now live – here’s how to play for free


Modern Warfare II doesn’t come out until October 28, but you can now play for free during the game’s two weekends of open beta.

This first weekend is exclusive to PlayStation owners. If you’re on PS4 or PS5 and have PlayStation Plus, you can get started right away.

The only caveat here is that you must have pre-ordered the game or received a free Early Access key to play the first 48 hours of the beta.

The beta is in Early Access from now through Sunday, September 18 at 10 a.m. PT. It opens to all PlayStation gamers on Sunday at 10 a.m. and will run until Tuesday, September 20.

Weekend 2 kicks off next Thursday, Sept. 22 at 10 a.m. PT. The first 48 hours are open to all PlayStation gamers as well as Xbox and PC players who have pre-ordered the game or received an Early Access code.

Then, on Saturday, September 24 at 10 a.m. PT, the beta will open to all players (with internet access, etc.) on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (via and Steam).

You can pre-order the game to get immediate access and cancel your pre-order if you don’t like what you’re playing. Alternatively, many content creators (myself included) are giving away early access keys for free. I’ve already done my first giveaway and sent keys to some of the winners. I’m also giving away more today. Find our more in the video below:
