Combat Rigs, mission teams, maps and modes.
The 'Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare' Multiplayer Beta is now live on the PS4 with the official start time is October 14th at 10AM PT. (Xbox One and PC access coming on October 21st.) The is time for everyone to check out 'Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare,' and the multiplayer will consume an entire for next year and beyond.
Competitive, casual, eSports, or just with with friends- it all starts here with the 'Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare' beta on the PS4.
Beta access is available for anyone who preorders. (Preorder here.) But we have codes here that we are giving away. To see how to get 'em, check out the bottom of this page.
As a reminder, here is what to expect in the beta (at least for the beginning):
Three Combat Rigs- the Warfighter, Merc, and Synaptic. The Warfighter is a good general use rig, the Merc is a heavy, while the Synaptic is a quick droid (and an early favorite). These rigs can be customized via Payloads and Traits and can be changed mid-match. (See impressions here.)
Two Mission Teams- the JTF Wolverines and the Orion Initiative. The Orion Initiative will need to be unlocked, and these teams will help players get rewards based off of performance and specific missions given by their respective unique commanders.
Three Maps- Frontier, Frost, and Throwback. Based off my experience, these maps, (like Frontier) will be pretty radical even for series veterans.
Four Modes- Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Kill Confirmed along with the new (and crazy) Defender mode. Try out the combination of the Frontier map and Defender mode for some nutso play.
Along with everything mentioned here, there will likely be some surprises. My guess would be another Rig, Map, and Mode.
The beta runs on PS4 from October 14th-17th (5PM GMT), and then October 21st-24th (5PM GMT). On the Xbox One, the dates are October 21st-24th (5PM GMT).
