How To Get A Beta Code

Open Beta Access for Black Ops Cold War will invite players who pre-purchase Black Ops Cold War to the Open Beta.

The beta is available early to those that pre-order digitally. PS4 will receive the beta first as part of the exclusivity deal with Sony/PlayStation.

This comes as no surprise, considering this has been the case almost every year.

In the closing few days, the beta will be available to all players on that supported platform. Meaning you do not need a beta code to participate.

If you are a Sky Broadband or TV customer you can get a beta code for free.
