An exclusive PS4 and PS5 beta?
Despite the acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft, the partnership with PlayStation should not end before 2024. Indeed, according to Charlie Intel, players who pre-order Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 on PS4 and PS5 would get early access to the open beta. This information was reportedly found in the CoD Vanguard Season 3 files.
There would be three editions of the game: standard, cross-gen bundle, and vault. The latter, more expensive, would contain the battle pass, operators, skins and weapon diagrams. But also 20 hours of double XP and 50 levels ahead. Access to the open beta, in early access or not, would be conditional on the cross-gen bundle and the “vault edition”.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will be available from October 28, 2022 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
