Call of Duty: WWII Open Beta Starting September 29

Call of Duty: WWII will officially have a PC beta on September 29. The good news is you won’t have to preorder to get access – anyone can jump aboard. Open beta will run for a whole weekend before wrapping up on October 2. According to Sledgehammer Games in their announcement, the beta is designed to stress test core game play systems and online backend infrastructure at scale. It’s also designed to give PC users a hands-on period with the game while the studio goes about its business fine tuning and optimizing.

Here are the minimum required specs, but these won’t necessarily apply to the full game, Sledgehammer warns. Recommended specs are still forthcoming.
