According to a blog post issued by Activision and Infinity Ward – the beta will “feature a robust multiplayer experience” that will go “beyond the Core 6v6 experience” and include “a variety of meticulously designed maps of various sizes, and an equally impressive set of Modes, Progression experiences.”
The studio unveiled one of the 6v6 multiplayer maps confirmed to appear within the Beta – the Marina Bay Grand Prix, “where combat occurs within the main infield of an urban race circuit.” the post reads.
Players who pre-order the Vault Edition of Modern Warfare II can take advantage of exclusive benefits throughout the Beta, including the four Red Team 141 Operators – Ghost, Farah, Price, and Soap, and the FJX Cinder Weapon Vault.
In the coming weeks before Call of Duty: Next, described as “an era-defining franchise event,” the Modern Warfare II developers will “pull back the curtain on aspects of developing the game, giving you unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the innovations coming to the game.”
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II will launch on October 28, 2022, on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, and PC via Battle.net and Steam.
