The 24-hour extension is being offered as a reward for the game’s community, which solved a number of coded challenges via the PawnTakesPawn ARG website. “Thanks to the code-breaking efforts of our incredible community, an extra day of the #BlackOpsColdWar Beta has been unlocked!,” the developers said on Twitter.
The open beta includes cross-play across PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game. Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be released on November 13 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is also set to launch with a brand-new Zombies mode. The four-player co-operative mode will feature a brand-new narrative set in a location known as Die Maschine. Players will explore a World War II bunker that contains the Zombie threat and uncover a story between two groups, Requiem and the Omega Group.
