Call of Duty: WW2 PC Open Beta Begins September 29
Ron Perillo / 11 months ago
Following Call of Duty: WW2‘s private multiplayer beta on the console, SledgeHammer Games is finally releasing an open beta for the PC on September 29. The fact that it is open beta makes it much more accessible and open to various PC configurations. This should allow the developers to work out the kinks before the title goes live. Unlike consoles with uniform hardware, PC gamers vary so much in terms of components so some bugs might slip by. Which is why open beta season is essential for any large scale complex multiplayer game.
According to SledgeHammer, the PC Open Beta is just a small part of the full Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer experience coming to Steam in November. The open beta objectives for them in particular include:
- Stress testing core gameplay systems and online backend infrastructure at scale
- Provide PC fans with their first hands-on experience of the boots-on-the-ground combat coming in Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer
- Engage with the PC community to fine-tune and optimize the PC experience for November
