There is an exclusive incentive for players to be part of the multiplayer beta being hosted later this month for Call of Duty: WWII.
Earlier today, Sledgehammer Games announced the Private Beta Combat Pack. It features a unique helmet, calling card, and emblem to remind everyone around that you were part of the beta testing. However, do note that the bonus pack will be tied to all valid accounts but access will only be granted when Call of Duty: WWII officially launches in fall.

The multiplayer beta is scheduled to commence from August 25 on PlayStation 4 for those who pre-order the latest installment in the military first-person franchise. It will continue through August 28 before a second wave of the beta will initiate on September 1. This one will feature both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but is not clarified whether the beta event will be open for everyone or not. The second beta will run for four days.
Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled to release worldwide on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. In accordance with the partnership between Sony and Activision, owners of PlayStation 4 are guaranteed a 30-day early access to every expansion pack released in the game’s life.
Previously, Sledgehammer Games made it clear that Call of Duty: WWII will not arrive for the Nintendo Switch at any point in the future. The news is hardly surprising, especially when considering the hardware limitations of the console. The decision to skip the Switch was made by the “business guys” at Activision and not the working development team.
