Call of Duty Modern Warfare Beta Start Times - Dates, Platforms, How to Access the Beta

Here's our guide covering the Call of Duty Modern Warfare beta dates, as well as all global start times, platforms, and how to access the beta.

The Call of Duty Modern Warfare beta is now in full swing on the PS4 for all players, and it'll be coming to the Xbox One next weekend. In this guide to all the beta periods, we'll be going over the Modern Warfare beta dates in full, as well as all start times, how to access the Modern Warfare beta, and more.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare Beta Start Dates

Below, you can see a complete list of all the Call of Duty Modern Warfare beta dates. The list includes the past PS4 early access period, as well as the full open beta period for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, which is coming up next weekend.

  • Modern Warfare PS4 Early Access - September 12 - 13
  • Modern Warfare PS4 Open Beta - September 13 - 13
  • Modern Warfare PC, PS4, Xbox One Early Access - September 19 - 20
  • Modern Warfare PC, PS4, Xbox One Open Beta - September 21 - 23

How to Access the Modern Warfare Beta

As you might have already guessed, there are different requirements for accessing the various Modern Warfare beta periods just above. With the "Early Access" periods on the PS4, PC, and Xbox One, the only way of playing in these sessions is through pre-ordering Modern Warfare on the corresponding platform.

However if you don't want to put down a pre-order for Modern Warfare, then you'll have to wait until the "Open Beta" periods listed above in order to play on your platform. During these Modern Warfare open beta sessions on the PS4, PC, and Xbox One, absolutely anyone can dive in and play.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare Beta Modes

Back at the end of August, a Game Informer interview with the Call of Duty Modern Warfare devs revealed some new details about the beta. The devs revealed that a mode called 'Ground War' will be available to play during all the Modern Warfare beta sessions.

So what do we know about Ground War so far? For now, we only know that it features upwards of 100 players, and it's basically pitched as a huge, full scale war mode for Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Whether it's objective or kill-based however, remains unknown for now.

Now that the Modern Warfare beta is in full swing, we've managed to compile a list of all confirmed weapons that you can utilize. For more on weapons, as well as the level unlock of every gun, head over to our Call of Duty Modern Warfare weapons guide.
