Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is all set to roll out its Beta Test this week. The first set of testing begins tomorrow, September 12. This testing follows the success of the Alpha test of Modern Warfare 2v2.

These different tests hope to give players and fans a preview of the maps and modes to be offered by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare before its official release. Qualified testers also get the chance to be the first to experience multiplayer action along with new gameplay mechanics.

The testing is going to be rolled out on what Activision calls Beta Weekends. Each "weekend" lasts for around five days beginning Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. and ending Monday morning. Here are the details of the Beta Weekends if you pre-ordered through retail:

Preparing for the Beta

For those looking to play the Beta for the longest time possible, going the pre-order route is the best option. Here are the things you need to remember:

  • Accessing The Beta Code
    • You need to check your email in order to get the Beta Codes. You then need to go to and then login with your Call of Duty account.
    • Once you receive the Beta Code, you then need to download it.
      • For the PS4
        • Go to the PlayStation Store.
        • Select ‘Redeem Codes’.
        • Enter your Beta Code and the download begins.
      • For the Xbox One
        • Go to the Microsoft Store.
