Call of Duty: WWII PC open beta pre-load now available

The upcoming PC open beta for Call of Duty: WWII is now available for pre-load over on Steam. As announced previously, all PC players can join in on the open beta, unlike the console beta which only permitted players who pre-ordered the game.

Sledgehammer Games already revealed the minimum PC specifications needed for the beta earlier this month, and today, it divulged the recommended PC requirements. We have listed both specifications below:

Recommended Specifications:
OS: Windows 10
CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-2400 / AMD Ryzen R5 1600X
RAM: 12 GB RAM
HDD: 25 GB HD space
Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 970 / GTX 1060 @ 6GB or AMD Radeon™ R9 390 / AMD RX 580
DirectX: Version 11.0 compatible video card or equivalent
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

Min Specifications:
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 / GTX 1050 or AMD Radeon™ HD 7850 @ 2GB
DirectX: Version 11.0 compatible video card or equivalent
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

Keep in mind that these requirements are just for the open beta, with the developer planning on sharing the game's final specifications once it goes through the data it will gather from the beta, along with player feedback, and additional benchmarks.

The developer also unveiled what exactly will be included in the open beta, which happens to be the same contents that were available on the console beta:

Maps – Four Multiplayer maps: Pointe du Hoc, Ardennes Forest, Gibraltar and Aachen
War – Operation Breakout
Modes – Four Multiplayer modes: Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint and Kill Confirmed
Divisions – Five Divisions: Infantry, Expeditionary, Airborne, Armored, and Mountain Division.
Progression – Players will begin at Soldier Rank 1. Over the weekend, the level cap will increase to 35, including progression to unlock weapons, scorestreaks, and equipment.

However, there are some features that will be included on the PC version at launch, but missing from the beta, such as HDR support, multi-monitor support, customization options, and the new Headquarters social mode.

The pre-load's size is around 14GB, with it available for download on its dedicated Steam page. This should give enough time for anyone interested in jumping into the free event, as the open beta itself is set to begin on September 29 and run until October 2.
