Black Ops Open Beta expanded for the Cold War

The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Crossplay Open Beta is here.

Stay tuned as we will provide updates as the beta continues for the second and final weekend.

Saturday 17th October update:

Black Ops Cold War Beta is now one Open Beta on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 for all players – no pre-order or codes required!

You can now start downloading and playing the Open Beta by visiting the PlayStation Store, Xbox One Store, or and downloading the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Open Beta file.

The beta file is 30 GB for PS4, 20.1 GB for Xbox One and 40 GB for PC.

If you’re having trouble finding it, there’s a direct link here:

PlayStation Plus is not required on PlayStation 4. Xbox Live Gold is required on Xbox One. A valid and active Blizzard account is required for PC players.

In addition to the beta, which is open to everyone, Treyarch has the Level Cap bis Level 40. More content is now available to unlock and test, including:

  • PERKS: Quartiermeister, Ninja
  • SCORESTREAKS: Air Patrol, Chopper Gunner
  • WILDCARD: Perk Gier
  • EQUIPMENT: Lockvogel, Semtex
  • FELD-UPGRADE: Interference transmitter

Additionally, Treyarch made an update to the playlist to add a return mode: control! Control first debuted in Black Ops 4 and is back in Black Ops Cold War.

Control complements our selection of 6v6 modes in the Crossplay Open Beta. We’re excited to bring back this Black Ops 4 fan favorite, where opposing teams battle to capture or defend two targets on the map, or wipe the other team out before they run out of life.

Each team of up to six players has 30 lives distributed across the team, which represents a new level of strategy for attacking and defending teams. Skip control of Cartel, Miami and Moscow this weekend

Call of Duty: Open Beta Weekend 2 for the Black Ops Cold War Open on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC is live until Tuesday October 20 at 10 a.m. PT.

Stop by and get your final experience of the game before it starts on November 13th!

Friday October 16 update:

Black Ops Cold War Beta Weekend 2 continues. Open Beta is LIVE on PlayStation 4 and Xbox and PC players can play with a digital pre-order.

New in beta on October 16: Treyarch has been activated Double XP und Double Weapon XP to help players level up!

Starting Friday October 16, we’re activating 2XP and 2X Weapon XP for everyone for the remainder of the Crossplay Open Beta weekend!

We’ve had your feedback that you’d like to try more attachments on the weapons available in the beta, and with more weapons joining the fight as we raise the level cap on Thursday and Saturday, we’re reducing the time it takes to level will raise your guns in half. Enjoy!

This will allow you to get a higher rank and weapon level to unlock and experience more content during the beta.

The Black Ops Cold War Beta will be Open Beta on all platforms starting October 17 at 10 a.m. PT.
