Sledgehammer Games has announced that the PC open multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: WWII will kick off on September 29. PC gamers will be able to grab the beta on Steam and play through October 2.
The open beta will only cover a small part of the multiplayer portion of the game, but it should provide some valuable feedback for balancing gameplay ahead of launch. It also offers Sledgehammer a chance to stress test its servers, hopefully leading to a stable launch experience.
If you plan on taking part in the open beta, Sledgehammer says you'll want to make sure your PC is equipped with the following minimum specs:
- OS: Windows 7 64-Bit or later
- CPU: Intel® Core™ i3 3225 or equivalent
- RAM: 8 GB RAM
- HDD: 25 GB HD space
- Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 660 @ 2 GB / AMD Radeon™ HD 7850 @ 2GB or better
- DirectX: Version 11.0 compatible video card or equivalent
- Network: Broadband Internet connection
- Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
Note that these minimum specs aren't necessarily set in stone for the final, shipping version of the game.
Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled for release on November 3, and it's currently up for preorder on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 starting at $59.99. Activision and Sledgehammer are throwing in the usual batch of goodies for preorders as well with a free multiplayer weapon unlock, a Divisions Pack with five premium gear sets, and a Zombies Camo for your gun.
