Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta details revealed

The first of two multiplayer beta weekends for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is on the horizon, and now Activision has revealed exactly what elements of the game beta participants will be able to sample.

According to a new post on Activision’s website, the Infinite Warfare beta will allow players to play on three different maps (Frontier, Frost, and Throwback), try out four different game modes (Team Deathmatch, Domination, Defender, and Kill Confirmed), and sample three of the full game’s six different Combat Rigs (Warfighter, Merc, and Synaptic).

The beta will also let participants try out the new and unique “Mission Teams” meta game feature which lets players join one of four different in-game factions and complete faction-specific missions to earn bonus XP, cosmetic items, and unique faction-specific prototype weapons. Two of the game’s four total factions will be joinable in the beta: the JTF Wolverines and the Orion Initiative.

The first beta weekend for Infinite Warfare will be exclusive to PlayStation 4 and will run from Friday, October 14 to Monday, October 17. The second beta weekend will be open to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players and will run from Friday, October 21 to Monday, October 24.
