With the console closed beta behind it, Call of Duty: WWII has now set its sight on PC for its next multiplayer beta. Unlike the console beta, the PC one will be completely open to everyone, without the need to pre-order the game for access.
According to the announcement by Sledgehammer Games, the open beta will "Stress test core gameplay systems and online backend infrastructure at scale", while also taking feedback from the PC community to "fine-tune and optimize the PC experience".
"This test is a critical step on our road to delivering the best possible online experience on Steam at launch in November", added the message. Moreover, the developer put forth the minimum PC specifications that will be required to play the beta smoothly, seen below.
OS: Windows 7 64-Bit or later
CPU: Intel® Core™ i3 3225 or equivalent
RAM: 8 GB RAM
HDD: 25 GB HD space
Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 660 @ 2 GB / AMD Radeon™ HD 7850 @ 2GB or better
DirectX: Version 11.0 compatible video card or equivalent
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
While the specifications seem quite modest, the developer noted that these requirements may change for the full game, which makes sense considering the multiplayer beta will only give access to a slice of the full experience. The recommended specifications, pre-load details, and what is actually included in the open beta will be shared later by the developer.
Call of Duty: WWII multiplayer open beta will be available for PC players via Steam on September 29, with it closing its doors on October 2. The game will be launching in full on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on November 3, returning the series to the Second World War.
