On Thursday, October 8th, PlayStation 4 players who preordered Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be able to dive into the first-ever beta test. To celebrate the impending arrival of the beta test, a brand new trailer dropped yesterday, though it comes with an interesting disclaimer: “Footage captured on next-gen platform. Performance may vary on other platforms.” Given that PlayStation 5 is not yet available, it’s likely that the trailer was filmed on PC and is not representative of the PlayStation 4 version. Regardless, it shows off what players can expect during the PS4 beta test this week. The PC beta for preorder customers is slated to run on October 15-16, with everyone invited to check out the game from October 17-19.
During the beta test, players will be able to check out a number of game modes including Team Deathmatch, Domination, VIP Escort, Kill Confirmed, Combined Arms, and a smattering of the campaign.

About Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
The iconic Black Ops series is back with Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War – the direct sequel to the original and fan-favorite Call of Duty®: Black Ops.
Black Ops Cold War will drop fans into the depths of the Cold War’s volatile geopolitical battle of the early 1980s. Nothing is ever as it seems in a gripping single-player Campaign, where players will come face-to-face with historical figures and hard truths, as they battle around the globe through iconic locales like East Berlin, Vietnam, Turkey, Soviet KGB headquarters, and more.
As elite operatives, you will follow the trail of a shadowy figure named Perseus who is on a mission to destabilize the global balance of power and change the course of history. Descend into the dark center of this global conspiracy alongside iconic characters Woods, Mason, and Hudson, and a new cast of operatives attempting to stop a plot decades in the making.
Beyond the Campaign, players will bring a Cold War arsenal of weapons and equipment into the next generation of Multiplayer and Zombies experiences.
