Sooo when should we get our codes? I preorder on PC but haven't seen anything.

Edit: Preorders via Blizzard launcher.

I can't wait to drop white phosphorus all over the battlefield like pixelated chemical jizzum and hear the distant cries of "reeeeeeee" gently fading away, realising that another attempt of censorship has, yet again, failed for them.

Also, if anybody has a spare PC code, slide into my DMS.

Can't wait to play with the Xbox and PC players.
It's kinda gets old being MVP 90% of the time.
Let's see what they got!

Question: so will the game still be playable on PS4 today, even though the beta is for Xbox and PC?

Just a tip for new players, I recommend using the matchmaking filter to limit it to just the 6v6 game modes. Ground War is fine, especially if that's your thing, but the core CoD experience is just so good here that I feel like the larger battles took away from my enjoyment of the beta, so I turned them off towards the end.

PC PC standard edition pre-order is USD $53 for anyone who wants to jump in for the beta:

They are saying it has no region lock and they are an Activision partner.

Perfect! I have ordered the operator edition from them!

I'm excited, and I'm gonna get it for pc since it shouldn't die out bcus of cross play.

Then again, I fear that XO and PS4 players opt out cross play because kb and mouse easily owns controller.


And I doubt that many put keyboard and mouse into your console even though it's possible
I think some ppl will be masochists like me and opt in pc players just to try to top rank them if thy could.

Is there away of identifying if someone is on psn or xbl, ie gamertags
I noticed when u look at the names before the game starts there's a little psn icon so I'm assuming these icons will changed based on platform. The icons look pretty cool besides the names.

Usernames show a symbol of xbox, ps4, or pc in the lobby
Just like how Gears 5 does it
Yes i saw that on my Ps4 MW beta, i meant as in when playing. Would be nice.

Someone clarify please:

Open beta is for everyone? Even if you didnt pre-order?

Ive just downloaded it on PC but cannot play it yet? Is that because its not launched yet or because i didnt pre-order?

Open beta will be for everyone and starts on the 20th I think about 9:00 PM EST but may be wrong on the time.

Another tip for Xbox/PC people there is a lot of motion blur that can be disabled in the menus plus a film grain effect that can be turned off.
