Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta Details

A post on the Activision Blog has outlines what we need to know about the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta testing that begins this week on PlayStation 4. They include this Multiplayer Beta Trailer with a look at the game, and offer details on how to preload the beta. We'll pick things up below with Weekend 2, which is the first chance PC gamers will get to join in the action:
Weekend 2: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, & PC Beta (Crossplay)
The second Beta Test Weekend is for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC owners, starting from Thursday, September 19, and running to the morning of Monday, September 23.

PlayStation 4 owners: If you’re a PlayStation 4 owner, regardless of whether or not you pre-ordered the game, you can resume and continue to play the Open Beta free for the entire Weekend 2 period (both the Early Access and Open periods).

Weekend 2: Early Access
The first two days of the weekend – Thursday, September 19, and Friday, September 20, – are free to all PlayStation 4 owners and do not require a pre-order. In addition, anyone who has pre-ordered the game on Xbox One, or on PC via Blizzard Battle.net also can play starting Thursday, September 19. If you’re an Xbox One or PC owner and want to play Weekend 2 of the Beta for the longest possible time, be sure to pre-order. Check your local retailer or online here for pre-order information.

Weekend 2: Open
The rest of the Open Beta period, running from Saturday, September 21, to the morning of Monday, September 23, is accessible to all players on PlayStation, Xbox One, or PC, regardless of pre-ordered status. If you’ve got an Xbox One, Xbox Live Gold is required to play. If you have a PC, a Battle.net account is required to play. Other than these prerequisites and an internet connection, you should have everything you need to play. And reminder, the Weekend 2 of the Beta Test will include crossplay.
