Black Ops Cold War Open Alpha
During the Playstation 5 reveal showcase, Treyarch surprisingly announced that there would be a Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War open alpha! The Open Alpha begins on Friday, September 18 at 10 AM PDT and ending September 20th at 10 AM PDT.
The Alpha is exclusive to Playstation 4 players and does not require a pre-order of Black Ops Cold War to participate in. It also does NOT require playstation plus to participate!
Pre-loading for the alpha will begin on September 17th at 8 AM PDT. This build is said to be the same that influencers previously played and will have a download size of 25 GB.
Players WILL be able to play with a mouse and keyboard plugged into their PlayStation consoles.
Xbox and PC Beta Dates
Xbox and PC users will be able to get their hands on Black Ops Cold War starting October 15th for those who have pre-ordered the new Call of Duty title, and October 17th for everyone as an open beta. This beta will end on October 19th.
Game Modes Included
6v6 Domination will be available for play in the Black Ops Cold War alpha, as well as the new Call of duty 12v12 game mode, combined arms!
We will update you as more information becomes available about the Cold War Open Alpha. For all this and more be sure to follow us over on twitter!
Why not for xbox?
Sony has an exclusivity deal with Call of Duty!
Cause Xbox is fucking trash
Try not to be so rude, console wars are inherently dumb.
Yeah Man this is the funniest shit ever fuck Xbox ??
Imagine actually fanboying over a game console. They’ve got you hook line and sinker.
You’re not wrong.
Cuz they’re Sony cucks
Same question here so i preorder and i am not allow to te beta . We paid rigth ?
Even though it’s exclusive to PlayStation because Activision and Sony have a pleasure agreement with each other of some sort but yet Xbox oneand PC fan base still spend as much if not more monies worth in some areas on games and content as well as put in the time and effort to achieve challanges within the games themselves so shouldn’t that count for somethings it’s not our fault Microsoft and ACTIVISION have some sort of disagreement on size or width so to speak so why should we have to suffer over it they could at least allow our side to enjoy one mode and one map until the beta dates and such
Wish we had the power to change this, sadly we do not.
Are we going to be able to play with mouse and keyboard like in MW?
Yes! Just updated the article to reflect that.
Sony with their timed exclusives or exclusive content is getting really annoying already! They need to stop Microsoft doesn’t do that. Death loop, Avenger war table, Cod, fall guys, fortnite etc….I know Xbox had the contract with cod before but Sony has kept it for a while now. All I know is that they need to get rid of this business model either have it exclusive or leave it alone.
The way the world works sadly!
Microsoft did do this and for years had exclusive deal before playstation and the same argument you make was in reverse.
This is true.
What happened to the October 8th date for open beta? Is that open beta just for PS4 or did they move dates?
Will there be any rewards for participating in the alpha? As a person who likes to unlock/ earn everything in the cods I play I don’t want my progression to be 99/100 because I didn’t have access to a only PS4 alpha release.
Yes! There’s a unique calling card!
This is the first time I seen an open alpha but sony does need to stop with exclusivity, cause a great jrpg series is like this as well called persona but who am I to say that Xbox needs to bid on stuff
There are no alpha dates for the xbox and PC after the period of this Alpha ?
Why TF is cod still a thing, can this shit franchise just end? every year same shit over and over we pay 60 bucks for a shitty campaign and garbage multiplayer with “Skill Based Matchmaking” all past cods from ghosts to Modern warfare 2019 are boring. And the exclusivity is dogshit yea equality right? it’s like a nigger waiting for his turn to eat but has to wait for weeks or months for a deal to end. Fuck you doug eat shit and die
And this is dumb and why I stopped purchasing anything call of duty related including games
Exclusivity deals suck.
How do you pre download?
Really xbox had control of every cod until bo3 came out then it was neutral and we took control bo4. Sony only had cod for bo4 and modern warfare now cold war only 3 years
You’re spitting facts. Exclusivity still sucks for all consumers.
And yet another COD game that will not get money from me. I stopped wasting money on that franchise after black ops 2.
Sorry to hear that!
Can’t fine the alpha for it can anyone help me
It’s on the Playstation market.
So u preorder the game from Xbox and it says on their that the date for September is for all platforms but now it’s separated interesting I was looking forward to that now I miss well wait till the f#####g game come out in November to play it wow no surprise
I am honestly angry, I pre bought the game on PC and it promised that we, pre buyers, would be the first to try it, then somehow Playstation gets a preview for free. I feel mislead and very pissed of about this…
It’s to be expected with their exclusivity deal.
I really hope y’all knocked it out of the park this year with all 3 main modes. I have not been this excited since BO2. Looking forward to playing the full game soon.
We are not affiliated with Call of Duty in any way besides reporting independent news.
I never understand these type of arguments. Exclusivity has always been around and whomever isn’t getting the bonus first always whines. If it bothers you that much then buy both consoles. I pre-ordered the Ultimate version for the Xbox One and I’m not bothered the least. I mean if you already pre-ordered the game then you have pretty much already decided you are buying it. Does one group of players getting to play it for 2 days before you really upset you that much?
Exclusivity sucks for all consumers, but crying it about it won’t fix it. Our wallets speak.
