Call of Duty: WWII’s beta event may have just come to a conclusion for consoles, but for PC players, the wait for access to the famous franchise’s latest installment has yet to end. According to an announcement on Sledgehammer Games’ website however, it would seem that our patience has finally been rewarded. WWII is scheduled to arrive on PC with a multiplayer beta event later this month, and this time, it’s not just for pre-orders.
The beta will be open to all players via the Steam retailing service on September 29, and will run through the weekend until October 2. Specific start and end times of the event have yet to be announced, though Sledgehammer has promised additional information will be revealed “in the days ahead.”
The developers consider the beta as “a critical step” towards ensuring a functional multiplayer mode when WWII officially releases in two months, with the key goals being to stress test the online infrastructure, receive feedback from the PC community, and, of course, to let fans have a go at the game before it launches. To see what console players thought of the game, check out the previous Reddit threads from Weekend 1 and 2.
