Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s multiplayer beta will arrive on the PlayStation 4 first on October 14 at 10 am. It will hit the Xbox One a week later on October 21, Activision announced today.

The PS4 multiplayer beta will be available for those who have pre-ordered the game. Activision’s Infinity Ward studio unveiled the details of multiplayer combat for Infinite Warfare at the recent Call of Duty XP event in Los Angeles. I got hands-on time with the multiplayer mode at the event, and it feels very familiar despite the sci-fi setting of the game. But a much wider group of fans will be able to give their verdict soon enough for the blockbuster title, which debuts on November 4.

This multiplayer will give players new ways to customize their characters and weapons to a personalized style of play. The beta test will concluded at 10 a.m. Pacific time on October 24.

You can still run on walls and move in a more fluid way, as you could in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. That is one thing that makes the adjustment from modern war to sci-fi easier. And the sci-fi weapons all feel like their modern war counterparts, said Joe Cecot, head of multiplayer, in an interview with GamesBeat. You can change rigs and weapons in the middle of a match if you wish.
