The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta start time is 10 AM Pacific, 1 PM Eastern on Friday of the weekend. PS4 players get to play both weekends, while Xbox One players only get to play the second weekend. The beta is starting a little later than expected.

The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare release date is November 4th.

PS4 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta Open to All

Infinite Warfare Beta DetailsThe Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta is on the PS4 before it is available on the Xbox One. In fact the PS4 beta is open to everyone this weekend and you can start downloading it at 11 AM to play on Friday.

Sony locked down the exclusive early access to the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare DLC for next year and this is how it worked for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beta on consoles.

At E3 2016 we learned that PS4 users get access to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered campaign play 30 days early.

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

If you have a PS4 or you know someone who bought the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare game you can ask them for a code. If you don’t fit either of those options you  need to buy Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare if you want to play the beta.

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

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. There are six codes with one Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare pre-order.

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 an Xbox One for the last day of the beta.

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

The video above shows what you can expect in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta. This includes;

  • New Combat Rig Systems
  • 3+ New Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Maps
  • 5+ New and Classic Call of Duty Game Modes
  • New Mission Teams

The rigs are a wearable customizable weapons system that you can use to match your style of play. Count on learning more about this when the beta starts.

What to Expect from the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta

When it comes to the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta, there are a few things to expect and a few that you shouldn’t get your hopes up for.

  • Expect options to play on PS4 and Xbox One
  • Expect a limited version of the game.
  • Don’t expect progress to carry over.
  • Expect that the Infinite Warfare beta to last a two weekends.
