Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will launch its open beta on Oct. 8th, first on PS4 before opening it up to all platforms a few days later on Oct 15th. Things you need to know before the beta starts, as usual start dates depending on your platform, how to gain early access to the beta test by preordering Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and more. If you're a PS4 player you're in luck, because for you the Alpha starts today Sep 18th.
First thing you 're asking is how do I (a normy) get access?? That's simple:
(1) If you pre-order Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War you're guaranteed early access.
(2) You could've potentially got a drop from being a viewer on CoD League matchups from Activision directly but the event is over (not confirmed: this event could kick back off during the middle of the beta like Valorant).
(3) Treyarch is currently dropping beta codes in its Discord Server or by simply watching their Instagram Stories.
