We tell you all about it such as the exact hours, the ways we can try and more.

Since you can play the beta on three different platforms, we're going to be breaking this article down into three different sections.

To download the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War open beta on the PlayStation 4, be sure to follow the steps outlined below. After being available for the players who have it reserved, it now becomes an open beta for everyone, on the platforms in which Cold War is available: PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

During the beta, experience signature Black Ops combat across traditional 6v6 modes, 12v12 Combined Arms, and a brand-new 40-player mode, Fireteam: Dirty Bomb.

The Black Ops Cold War Open Beta will be free on Xbox One, with players who pre-ordered digitally gaining early access.

Double XP and Double Weapon XP are live until the Beta ends.
