Open Beta

What can players expect during the open beta? It's going to offer a multiplayer experience that goes beyond the core 6v6 experience along with different meticulously designed maps of various sizes, and an equally impressive set of modes and progression experiences, to name a few.

There's also the Marina Bay Grand Prix, where combat occurs within the main infield of an urban race circuit, one of the 6v6 multiplayer maps confirmed for the beta. Besides the different in-game rewards during the beta, players who pre-ordered the Vault Edition can also use these rewards during the testing period:

  • All four of the Red Team 141 Operators – Ghost, Farah, Price, and Soap – each wearing a special masked outfit.
  • The FJX Cinder Weapon Vault.

COD Next

While waiting for open beta, watch out for the Call of Duty: Next event on September 15, which features a full multiplayer reveal for Modern Warfare 2. You’ll also get to know what’s being planned for the franchise and not just for Modern Warfare 2.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
