The Open Beta for Modern Warfare 2 is on its way, giving players a taste of gunplay and maps from this year''s Call of Duty.
While Modern Warfare 2 hasn''t received a full reveal yet, Activision has confirmed that an open beta is imminent, and there''s even instructions on how to get a code through pre-ordering or as a result of the launch risk.
The open beta''s release date will be announced, as well as information about getting Early Access to the Modern Warfare 2 beta.

The open beta release date for Modern Warfare 2 has been announced.
The date of the Modern Warfare 2 open beta has not been officially announced, but given that there''s pretty much a new Call of Duty game every year since the dawn of time, we can make a fairly good forecast to the date.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 launches October 28th and 2022, which is slightly earlier than previous years. Traditionally, open betas for Call of Duty titles arrive six weeks before its launch, so expect to be playing Modern Warfare 2''s open beta sometime in September.
Although the open beta will be available to all players, hence the name, there will be a period of early access for certain players.
The only potential leak we must outright right now is from famous Call of Duty leaker Ralph Valve. They have previously been correct about the timing of new Call of Duty seasons and betas, and according to a research at WhatIfGaming, the Modern Warfare 2 open beta might begin on September 15.
Activision has not confirmed this, but it is unlikely that the company will define the beta dates sooner rather than later. There is one such event in which we might expect it very soon.

What will be included in the Beta of Modern Warfare 2?
Activision and Infinity Ward have yet to provide any information about what to expect from the open beta of Modern Warfare 2. The official website is broken down.
"This pre-release version of the game will give you an advanced look into Multiplayer, including maps, modes, weapons, and other features."
In the past, the Call Of Duty open betas included a few maps, one or two modes, and a set of weapon loadouts to try.
A leak from an NFL team hosted by the LA Rams has given us a look at the multiplayer lobby and a small snippet of gameplay. Nothing much more, however, it''s proof that the beta, or at least a slice of multiplayer, is fairly ready to go:
