Do I Need to Buy to play the Infinite Warfare Beta?

You may not need to buy the game, but you will need to pre-order for guaranteed access.

A common theme for betas over the last year is to deliver multiple beta codes to each player who pre-ordered. If that is the case you can likely get a code from a friend or online from someone with extras.

You only need to pre-order Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to get the code, so you could place a basic pre-order at Amazon and then if you don’t like the beta cancel that pre-order after the beta is over.

We also expect that the game will open up to anyone with a PS4, Xbox One or PC for the last day or days of the beta.

What’s in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta?

The only thing that we know in addition to the Target card is that other retailers list this as a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare MP Pre-Order offer.

With that in mind you should expect a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer beta that includes a few maps, some character options and limited leveling up.

Count on learning more about this in September if it is something that will come to players this year.

  • Expect that the Infinite Warfare beta to last a week or so. the minimum is three days.
