Activision today confirmed that a multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: World at War will be available for download in October, but only for the Xbox 360 and PC. PS3 owners appear to be left out of the multiplayer beta experience entirely this time.
The COD: World at War betas will serve as an early chance for players to practice their tactics in the Pacific and European theaters of war. Players will experience the game’s new squad system, as well as fan-favorite perks and kill streaks.
The betas will also give skeptics a chance to see just how Treyarch is handling the game. Infinity Ward is often seen as the developer of the best COD games (COD 2 and COD 4), so this World at War beta will give gamers an idea of how Treyarch’s latest is shaping up.
Players interested in playing the Xbox 360 multiplayer beta can register at the Call of Duty Web site or pre-order the game at any GameStop retail location or online.
COD: World at War will have a Wii version in addition to the Xbox 360, PC and PS3 SKUs. The release date for these versions has not yet been confirmed, but they will likely ship in November.
