The Call of Duty: WWII beta starts on August 25th on the PS4 and on September 4th for the Xbox One. We’ll show you how to sign up for the Call of Duty: WWII beta so that you can try the new Call of Duty out before the release date in November. Taking a few steps now will simplify the Call of Duty: WWII beta download in August or September.
You need to pre-order Call of Duty: WWII to get into the beta, but if you order through a store like Amazon you can cancel your pre-order if you don’t like the game. This is early enough that we should see changes to the game based on the beta, but some users will likely use it as a Call of Duty: WWII demo to see if it is the boots on the ground combat they want. Here are the best Call of Duty: WWII deals that still get you access to the beta.
If you don’t pre-order you can ask a friend for a Call of Duty: WWII Beta token. There is a very good chance that Activision will send out three tokens to users who pre-order, allowing them to share with friends.
The Call of Duty: WWII beta is August 25th through August 28th on the PS4 and September 1st through September 4th on the PS4 and Xbox One. PS4 owners get two weekends of play.
How to Sign Up for the Call of Duty: WWII Beta
You need to enter the code that you get when you pre-order Call of Duty: WWII. You will get this code by email if you buy online or on your receipt if you buy in store. It’s a good idea to get your code before the Call of Duty: WWII beta start time, since there can be delays between pre-ordering and getting your code. We received a code from Best Buy in minutes, but this can take up to 72 hours at some retailers. If you pre-ordered digitally on your PS4 or Xbox One you don’t need to get a code.
- Once your code arrives go to the Call of Duty Beta registration website.
- Click on Redeem Code(s)
- Login to Activision or click on the network to login to that account.
- Enter the Code, Choose your Platform and Location. Click Submit.
If you see a success message you are registered and will need to check your email closer to the Call of Duty: WWII beta start date for your Call of Duty: WWII Beta Token. In the past we’ve seen Activision offer up three Beta tokens, which means you should be able to share with friends who have not pre-ordered.
Call of Duty: WWII Beta Problems
We normally see some Call of Duty: WWII beta problems with registration. Most often it is a missing code or a code that doesn’t work. If you run into problems, this is what you need to do.
If your Call of Duty: WWII beta code does not work or you cannot find it, you will need to contact the retailer who issued it to you. You only get the code at participating retailers. You can use social media, a support phone number, email or go into the store if your code is missing or illegible on your receipt. Activision cannot help you get a code.
We are hearing from users who have yet to get their Call of Duty: WWII beta code, but some retailers may only offer it a day before the beta starts.
Buy If You Like the State of Call of Duty: WWII
We are a month into Call of Duty: WWII and there are many changes to the overall gameplay including changes to flinch, weapon balancing and small tweaks designed to make the game better.
You can read about the changes in the latest two Call of Duty: WWII updates to see if it fixed anything you had an issue with during the beta or while playing at a friend's near launch.
There are still some complaints and issues, but we are starting to get a better feel for what Call of Duty: WWII will be like through the rest of the year and through 2018.
