Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 beta access will be given to PlayStation gamers. It was announced during the Call of Duty League Championship Weekend that the Modern Warfare 2 beta would begin on September 16. We previously knew that PS4 and PS5 owners would get first dibs on the beta, but the leaked dates seem to spot on.

“A robust multiplayer experience going beyond the Core 6v6 experience with a variety of meticulously designed maps of various sizes, and an equally impressive set of Modes, Progression experiences, and other aspects” are some of the highlights that Activision and Infinity Ward have outlined for us in the upcoming beta. Those that pre-ordered Modern Warfare 2’s Vault Edition will be able to utilize the in-game prizes that came with it during the beta test, as well.
Next presentation will be held on the same day as the PlayStation beta begins. Modern Warfare 2 and the series’ future are expected to be more detailed.
